The different release timelines are more notable anyway. The official Lost Planet 2 page says the Xbox 360 version will be released this winter. The PlayStation 3 version has a TBD release window. Great. Well, on the plus side the PS3 owners can look forward to free online play and Lost Planet 2 is the kind of game you want to play online.
At E3 I joined in a cooperative network match where four players attempted to take down a gigantic amphibian-like Akrid. In the match I scrambled to activate beacons to add points to the team score while gunning the few orange weak points on the monstrosity. You lose team points when players get trampled or forget to use their harmonize to repair damage. When your team score goes to zero the match ends. The only way to win was to run inside the monster’s belly and blast it from the inside. My team died while I was walking in the beast’s intestines.
