Lost Planet demoed over 1 million times

Demos for Capcom's icy sci-fi shooter have reached a download milestone; almost 300,000 hours logged in multiplayer demo.


Capcom loves touting numbers for its catalog of games. Whether it's the massive downloads of the Xbox Live Arcade adaptation of Street Fighter II' Hyper Fighting or the sales figures of Dead Rising, if it's happening with a Capcom game, the publisher wants people to know about it.

The latest Capcom game to reach an impressive milestone is Lost Planet: Extreme Condition. Today, the company announced the single-player and multiplayer demos of Lost Planet have been downloaded a total of more than 1 million times.

The single-player sampling was released over Xbox Live during E3 2006, and the game's multiplayer demo was released this past Thanksgiving. Capcom claims that the multiplayer demo has logged almost 300,000 hours of playtime since its release.

Lost Planet, set to be released on January 12, is rated T for Teen and will retail in two editions, a standard edition for $59.99 and a Collector's Edition for $69.99. For more information on the game, read GameSpot's previous coverage.
