Lost Planet 2
Download the Lost Planet 2 Demo and Capcom Will Donate To Charity
Written By
View author's profile

Last week Capcom announced that 21st April will see a new Lost Planet 2 versus demo hit the Xbox Live Marketplace, but just in case the promise of slaying towering beasties wasn't enough of an incentive to get the demo in, Capcom has also put together a $20,000 charity fund for the first 1 million downloads.

The "Kill Big For Charity" campaign ties-in to the multiplayer demo, and will kick off as early subscribers begin to download it this week, continuing through to May 5th. If the downloads exceed the 1 million milestone by 500,000 on both Xbox 360 and PS3, then Capcom will also add an extra $5000 to the donation.

A donation will go to 'Music For Relief' for each demo downloaded, and will allow players to compete for a spot at a community celebrity/charity tournament hosted by Capcom Unity to take place at the game's launch party.

For more on early access codes, the charity program and the launch event, visit the LP2 community site at www.lostplanetcommunity.com

Lost Planet 2 is out on 11th May in Europe and North America.

Despite having no interest in this game, I'll happily download the demo if money goes to charity. Great idea by Capcom.

Kill giant monsters, money gets given to charity. That's my sort of fund raising.

Well I got the versus demo code from lostplanetcommunity.com but apparently they sent out the same code to all the 360 people. I entered in the code and it said it had already been redeemed. Hopefully they get it straightened out but if not then I'll just download it on april 21.

@10 Thanks for the heads up. I just put it in my download queue. :)

Nice idea marketing wise. Cheaper than a advertising campaign and this way folk will happily advertise it and viral the game themselves...

by the way guys, if you download the early access version of this demo, you get an upgraded machine gun to keep permanantly for use in the final game.

They should do a TV ad:

Presenter: 'Hey Johnny, want the Lost Planet 2 demo?'
Kid: 'Not really.....'
Presenter: 'YOU'RE KILLING UNDER-PRIVILEDGED CHILDEREN!'

Thats sweet of Capcom :) Will download this

@ 32 Lol, IW should donate millions, Both COD4, and MW2 has made millions, MW2 was the best selling game of all time I think on 360 and PS3. But i know its the best seling game, and they make lots of money yet they dont do nothing but sit on their ass and not care about their fans. But I still love MW2

Great idea, piss poor execution. Like others have mentioned, many of the access codes they issue, have allready been redeemed. Damn, there goes my shot at the celebrity tournament, and owning a bunch of B-list celebs.

Nice on the surface but in the end it is just marketing campain. Companys shouldn't need to tell people "If you do that than we spend some of our money, blabla". Calculate it through. 1.000.000 downloaded demos. Let's say 1% (even with 0.1%) of the gamers buy the game because they like the demo and Capcom has easily the money for charity back in their house. Still, it's nice that Capcom gives a little (very little) of their money away for charity

I'm glad to see this. I planned on downloading the demo anyway but it's nice to see them giving back. Even if it isn't really a LOT of money for them, it's still more than nothing. :) good job Capcom.

You're so clever, random troll. I wish I were you.

Anyway, they had my money after the first demo. Was going to download this anyway. Hopefully something good will come of this.
