Dead Rising and Lost Planet to remain Xbox 360-exclusive

Says Capcom man.

Whatever's going on with Devil May Cry 4 (it's coming to Xbox 360 and PC as well as PS3 - where have you been?), Lost Planet and Dead Rising "are not slated to appear on Wii or PS3 as far as current plans go".

That's according to Capcom's director of strategic planning and research, Christian Svensson, who was drawn into clarifying his earlier comments on the publisher's official forum. Previously he had said that Capcom is "committed to making its titles available to as wide an audience as possible" in reference to DMC4's situation.

"The quote delivered above references our strategy moving forward, not something that is necessarily retroactive. You can see evidence of this with our previously stated [Resident Evil 5] plans going to 360 and PS3 simultaneously," Svensson noted.

So why are Lost Planet and Dead Rising exclusive, then? "I'm bound by [non-disclosure agreements] on these matters so I can't divulge why this is the situation." Fair enough. With Capcom having said Dead Rising sequels are likely, though, it's an issue the company's probably going to have to return to at some point.
