New “Department” at the PlayStation Store: The Capcom Storefront

Ro Hernandez's Avatar + Posted by Ro Hernandez on Nov 10, 2008 // Digital Distribution Manager, Sony Network Entertainment

Hope you’ve been enjoying the beefy updates over the past couple weeks. If you have been a frequent visitor to PlayStation Store, you would have noticed the custom categories we created for Halloween and for the Siren: Blood Curse promotion.

This Thursday, we are releasing a custom category for Capcom. As you may know, Capcom has been a huge supporter of PlayStation Network, so we collaborated on a special storefront to coincide with the release of Age of Booty.

Within this “Capcom Store”, you’ll be able to browse through all Capcom digital content available from PlayStation Network. Once inside the Capcom category, you will notice that all their content is sorted by title. This allows you easy access to view all content related to a particular game. This includes all full game content, demo and promotional items (themes, wallpapers, etc).

Be sure to keep a look out for this new offering dropping this Thursday and some exclusive Capcom content headed to PlayStation Store in the future!

Peace,
Ro

This is what I am talking about Sony! Great addition to the store. Will be seeing more of the specialized store fronts for other developers in the future?

Capcom has made some historically great and successful game franchises. This is altogether great for developers all around for Sony to allow custom areas specific for their products. I am hoping to see similar developer themed stores in Home too.

Capcom…im sorry Capgods have been doing an amazing job supporting PSN and have been releasing truly amazing titles. Sony you are doing a great job with the PSN and a great job with 3rd parties in releasing content for it, Burnout Paradise for download, and now the Camcom Store. Keep it up!

Capcom comes out and says SFHD is coming out in November, well here we are and STILL NO RELEASE date. Fantastic work guys, just keep being as ambiguous to the fans as possible.

    + John Diamonon on November 10th, 2008 at 7:17 pm said:

    The only reason we can\’t announce a date is because we have to wait for the game to pass QA. When that happens, you\’ll be hearing from me personally.

Great, so why isn’t Devil May Cry 4 and Resident Evil 5 exclusive to PS3?


38

+ Squamden on November 10th, 2008 at 6:06 pm said:

@ cb_32

Because it simply is not profitable for a third-party to sign an exclusive contract with either Sony or Microsoft. Games are too expensive to make nowadays, and exclusive games alienate millions of potential buyers. Sony still has some incredible exclusives, just don’t expect too much in the way of third-party exclusives anymore. Accept it, and move on.

+ illegalprelude on November 10th, 2008 at 6:09 pm said:

A quick question. does this mean, new content from Capcom will only show when you go in the Capcom side of PSN or will it also still show under new releases?

I hope its the latter

Dear Ro & John D,

This truly is awesome, ill definitely check out Age Of Booty. Already own Mega Man 9, Bionic Commando, Etc. Capcom has always been one of my favorites, but we want more PSone games like Resident Evil or even Street Fighter Alpha EX. But you know what would be even more awesomer!?…Strider HD, it just looks cool reading it. BTW, im talking bout the NES classic, with the killer music. Speaking of music, why is it that the latest releases of downloadable games dont output in 5.1, or is that only on Xbox 360?


45

+ L on November 10th, 2008 at 6:46 pm said:

Question for John D.-

so is there going to be a custom place in Home for all things Capcom?

It would be like Macy’s i bet, maybe bigger! Capcom has a lot of great franchises…so bring Monster Hunter to PS3! lol

Looking forward to the New Playstation 3 Experience! er.. i mean..oh wait..

I have another request, I know, were a bunch of greedy, needy and picky gamers. But, is there anyway to create a patch for Mega Man 9 to output in widescreen? I know its supposed to be retro and all, but many people would prefer their retro in widescreen too.

Thanx!

    Mega Man 9 is intended for 4:3 play. What I do is use my ZOOM, H-FILL or JUST function to play full screen.
