Lost Planet 2 Takes a Shot at Used Game Sales
Lost Planet 2 was released recently as a sequel to the ambitious third-person shooter Lost Planet: Extreme Condition, and already there has been bugs discovered within the shooter pertaining to some of the game’s trophies. Now, Capcom’s included a trophy/achievement in Lost Planet 2 that rewards the player for not selling or trading the the game for six months.
Seen over at Andriasang, players are awarded the “Running Through 6” trophy after 6 months from which you’ve played the game. Some individuals have found a way of bypassing the six months in less than 5 minutes,
- Before starting the game, remove the LAN cable and set the clock seven months back.
- Create save data file.
- Return to the dash board, connect your LAN cable, and connect to Live.
- Start up the game and load up the save file.
This looks to be Capcom’s method of luring the gamer to play their game a little bit longer, and also looks to be a positive step forward in the battle against losing sales to the used game market.
