Jeff and Chris from the US Blog recently took a trip down to Capcom HQ to talk about Lost Planet 2. I thought you might appreciate seeing their tag-team interview with Brian Keltner, from Capcom PR, and Shawn Baxter, from the Capcom Community team, as they discuss the game’s multiplayer.
While I’ve got you here, this seems like the perfect opportunity to tell you about Capcom Europe’s head-to-head demo challenge. We’ve been given 16 early access codes for the Lost Planet 2 demo to hand out to you guys. Here’s how it will work: there will be two teams of 8 each from PlayStation.Blog, TheSixthAxis and the Capcom Europe community.
Matches will be taking place every night between 6th April and 10th April, at 8pm GMT. If you’re certain you can make each of these matches, then post a comment here with your PSN ID and, ideally, your Twitter ID (much easier for us to hand out codes that way). Make sure you’re also following @PlayStationEU, so that we can DM you your code.
We’ll pick 16 people at random and you’ll receive your codes by Monday the 5th of April.

Take it away Chris —
This week we dropped by Capcom HQ to test out multiplayer on the PS3 version of Lost Planet 2, as well as get some of your questions answered. There’s a video featuring exclusive footage and your answers below.
We also found out that Capcom is doing something pretty cool: if 1.5 million of you gamers download the upcoming multiplayer demo (available 22nd April), they’ll donate $25K to charity. Easy enough, right?
So why are we telling you this today, when the demo won’t be live for 3 weeks? Because Capcom is giving some gamers a headstart on that download (which means you may be able to start playing it now).
Head over to lostplanetcommunity.com, where you can enter to win early access to the demo. Strike out there? Stay tuned to our Twitter account; we’ll be giving out some more download codes later today.
