Double up on Gamerscore points with Lost Planet: Colonies

Lost Planet is coming to the Xbox 360 again with even more content than the PC and PlayStation 3 releases. Four multiplayer maps, five character models, a single player score attack mode and Akrid Hunter where you get to play as the insect-like creatures that populate the frozen wasteland.

 

Lost Planet: Colonies is essentially an expanded, value priced version of Lost Planet: Extreme Condition. However, the title is incompatible with game data from the original release. You won’t be able to challenge people using Extreme Condition, even in regular multiplayer games, either. Since the bulk of features in Lost Planet: Colonies are related to online play I wonder how many people will take the plunge and purchase Lost Planet again. A patch would have been a much better choice, but considering the amount of extra content in Colonies that doesn’t seem like an option. Well, at least there is an extra 1,000 Gamerscore points for everyone that buys Lost Planet as second time.

 

Now what can Capcom add in for Lost Planet: Expanded Colonies Edition to tempt PlayStation 3 owners to purchase Lost Planet again.

    this works out nicely for me. i never bought the game. i borrowed it from a friend to play through it. i was planning to pick it up at a 20 dollar price point or so. if this “value” price is 30 or less, i’ll grab a copy of my own. i’ve gotta say i’m surprised though about all the mp stuff. i didn’t like the mp one bit in this game.

    Yeah who knows? I just bought the PS3 version and then I saw this. I fully intended to purchase a 360 version someday I guess this will be it. Please Capcom no more Monster Hunter treatment of Lost Planet ok?

    I am definitely going to pick this up, I really enjoyed Lost Planet originally and between the new content and reduced price I am definitely enticed.
