Lost Planet 2 360 significantly cut

Capcom's developers in near tears over size restrictions of DVD format

Lost Planet 2 producer Jun Takeuchi has said that Capcom had to cut a significant amount of content from the Xbox 360 version of the game due to size issues with its DVD format.

Speaking to the Japanese press about how development on the title was progressing, Takeuchi explained, "There wasn't especially any big trouble. More than those kind of difficulties, the edited content was way too much and dealing with that was more difficult than anything.

"This time, truly, the content that was cut was significant and at the end, we had to wrestle with disc space."

Takeuchi said that the development team was on the verge of crying as they cut the game to fit on the disk. The good news is that there is a chance the cut content could appear later as DLC, but will Capcom charge 360 owners for it? And why don't they just release it on more than one disc?

Game's out May 20.

Thanks Kotaku.
