Lost Planet 2 could be an Xbox 360 timed exclusive in Japan

Capcom’s Japanese site for Lost Planet 2 has been updated with estimated release periods for both the Xbox 360 and newly-announced PlayStation 3 versions. The Xbox 360 version is listed as coming out this winter, but the PlayStation 3 version has an undetermined date. It appears that Lost Planet 2 will be a timed exclusive for the 360 in Japan, unless Capcom’s unnanounced PS3 release window turns out the same as the 360 release window.

Unofficial sources such as gamestop.com, show the same North American release date, February 23, for both versions, but that could be a placeholder. We’re currently inquiring with both Capcom and Microsoft to determine the timing of the North American releases. 

Many sources believe that the delay in Japan is due to starting the PS3 version later, and not due to any agreements. Becuase common logic will tell you why would any company make a game  360 exclusive in Japan of all places.
