250w ago - Last week we reported on a new game announcement incoming from Capcom. They were to reveal the game through a download exclusively on Xbox LIVE.
That teaser is now available for download. You can find the 436mb download HERE to the Xbox LIVE Marketplace.
Get downloading and as soon as we know what all the fuss is about, we'll let you know.
The secret game is, as expected, Lost Planet 2. We knew that the game was coming in 2009, and as is the case with the recently announced Dead Rising 2, we expect it to be a multiplatform title, especially since Lost Planet was eventually released for the PlayStation 3.
So what have we learnt from the trailer? Well there's a whole load of gameplay footage to watch, with the game being powered by Capcom's proprietary engine, the MT-FrameWork 2.0. The game will include significant climate change, meaning that the snow has now melted, revealing lush jungles.

"A spokesman for the Australian company confirmed the theft had happened. 'One of our product executives was given the phone to test the system. He had it with him at an organised evening event and it was stolen from him - we don't know by whom.'"
Microsoft declined to comment on the report.

300w ago - Earlier today, Capcom opened their doors to Bay Area gamers interested in spending an afternoon playing one of their new games. A set of photos from the test are now online and one of them teases us with black boxes over the monitors.
While we can't see the title in question there are Xbox 360 development units adjacent to the flat screen TVs and a 360 pad in someone's lap. It seems likely the unknown title is going to be an Xbox 360 game.
Could this be a test for Lost Planet Colonies? While Capcom has yet to say anything official about a potential Lost Planet follow up many, many ratings boards have Lost Planet Colonies in their database.
The room happens to have Lost Planet artwork on the wall too, which may or may not be a coincidence.
