LostPlanet2_psd_jpgcopyToday, Capcom announced that Xbox LIVE subscribers will be able to sample the sweet, sweet taste of giant salamander meat in the Lost Planet 2 co-op demo, set to release next Wednesday.

Xbox LIVE Gold members will be able to download the demo on the 19th, while Silver subscribers will have to wait another whole week to hop in on the multiplayer goodness.

The demo is the same one showcased at this year’s E3 and Comic-con, and features a whole slew of weapons and mech suits for up to 4 players to stomp around in. It focuses on an epic battle with an enormous salamander, in which players can slice of limbs or even be swallowed whole, Pinocchio-style.

The final release date for Lost Planet 2 is yet to be announced.

Fight people wearing metal suits!

Capcom’s fan favorite, Marvel vs. Capcom 2, is finally making its way onto Xbox LIVE Arcade today, and can be purchased for a pithy 1200 Microsoft Points (about 15 dollars in real-world money.)

The game, which had been going for well over $100 on systems like the Dreamcast, will be available for download and online play.

Marvel vs. Capcom 2 pits 56 characters from both Marvel and Capcom universes  like Iron Man, Captain America, Ryu from Street Fighter and Jill Valentine from Resident Evil,  against one another in mortal combat (but not kombat).

Check it out today for Xbox Live, and for the PS3 owners out there, the game should be hitting PSN for $14.99 on August 13.
