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.

103008_GameTricksandTreats 103008_GameSirenPage

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!

Capcom should port Dead Rising to the PS3 and release it on the PSN as a downloadable title. Would sell millions.

Great news.

I hope Sony snags some exclusive Resident Evil goodies.

Do you think Capcom will contribute some exclusive things not only to Playstation Home, but this as well?

This is an awesome update…thanks Ro!

Nice… more Capcom is always a good thing. Especially if it were a Dead Rising port? Hmm?

Resident Evil 2 HD

Mega Man Powered Up and Mega Man Maverick Hunter X plzkthx

Im insanely suprised im the only one here that thinks this is a stupid idea.
I would much rather have had a ÈSearch by Company style thing on the front page, then in that have multiple folders for different companies (ex: Capcom, SCEA, etc), and then have their games in those folders.

I mean, if Capcom had 40 or 50 games, then sure… it would be okay to reward them with their own section. But they dont.

Nobody will use this. I almost promise you that. Everyone will continue to use the store as they do now.

Still though, thanks for continually updating everything to do with the PS3. :D I really do appreciate it. Things like this though… The time it must have took you guys to do this could have definately been put into the many updates that people want done. things like the battery icon over the clock, the blank black screen when you hold the PS Button, the never-updated information board, the occasional freezing when you highligt the subject line when you try to send somebody a message, etc etc.

Oh well though. Thanks for the updates! Keepèem coming!

    that\’s the beauty of PSN; it can always be updated to cater to growing needs of our users. This Capcom Store is another example of that. Hope you check it out!?


+ senjutsu_dav on November 10th, 2008 at 7:44 pm said:

Pretty cool. I hope we’ll see more of those! :D

Like an RPG vault!!! With blogs and news about RPGs (RPG was the exemple, you can replace with anything you like) where we can comment and share our thoughts AND download demos, videos, wallpapers, etc, that have something to do with this category of games! No more searching! :D


+ 40cal on November 10th, 2008 at 7:51 pm said:

Looks nice. And to echo everyone else, Yes all PSone RE games would be great, along with all the Mega Man games, Marvel vs Capcom, Breath of Fire III and IV, the Strider games, all of the games that have come out for PSP need to be in the store, and Final Fight is a must.


+ colonel970 on November 10th, 2008 at 7:55 pm said:

John Diamonon:

Could you tell us please how are we going to select the store? Is it going to be a tab on the left, or is it going to be just another square on the right like any other game?

Any details on this please?
Sorry for my english, is not my first language, I hope i am being clear)

+ gamer812 on November 10th, 2008 at 8:10 pm said:

It’s been said over and over again. For the love of god, put up Resident Evil 1, 2, and 3 on the PSN!


+ Lord_Von_Punx on November 10th, 2008 at 8:14 pm said:

Here’s a question I doubt will be answered by Capcom. What happened to Talisman?

    + John Diamonon on November 11th, 2008 at 5:33 am said:

    We cancelled Talisman for a number of reasons. Go to and forums. There\’s a section called \”Ask Capcom\” where out VP of Bus Dev answers that very questions.


+ OverlordSpike on November 10th, 2008 at 8:20 pm said:

sweet! gotta love capcom =) will all the dev’s be on age of booty, or just yourself John? It would be cool to play with/against the dev’s, see if any of us gamers can beat them..lots of fun to be had =D


+ Skerj on November 10th, 2008 at 8:40 pm said:

Does this mean we’ll stop getting screwed over for things like betas that were on “other” online services then?


+ GGCAN on November 10th, 2008 at 8:53 pm said:

Nice addition….yes something on Home would be nice…get more of these supporters onto Home and I’m sure there would be some great things to come.


+ TheHater on November 10th, 2008 at 9:11 pm said:

Where is Monster Hunter for the PS3 dammit?


+ P_tear_griffin on November 10th, 2008 at 9:36 pm said:

I’d be cool to see RE4 in there. Oh well.


+ B1ack_Mage on November 10th, 2008 at 9:50 pm said:

Capcom definitely deserves a special store front for all the great items they put on the PSN. It would be nice to get the mega man legends series, resident evil series, and dino crisis series on the service too ;)


+ wU-sOLdiEr on November 10th, 2008 at 10:01 pm said:

any word on legendary game Marvel Vs. Capcom 2, making a come back? i have it for my dreamcast but i would love it on the ps3, since that game is about 90 bucks (used) for the ps2


+ SDkngsht on November 11th, 2008 at 9:29 am said:

man…what’s up with Dead Rising as a downloadable game in the Capcom section?

if they can put Burnout Paradise on the PSN they can put Dead Rising right?

a remake of Resident Evil 1 would be cool too.


+ maximiliano on November 11th, 2008 at 9:37 am said:

This looks nice indeed =).

But I’m still wondering why all “Bring Monster Hunter to PS3!” comments keep being ignored..

Seriously, I’m a huge fan of MH, played first one, and the psp’s ones. I know there will be a “connect psp MH from PS3” thing, but that’s not really the point, I want Monter Hunter HI-DEF! That’s what I think all PS3 owners that are MH fans would like to see from capcom..
Just my little “friendly rant”.. sorry.


+ BrandenF on November 11th, 2008 at 10:38 am said:

SF2HDR Would be perfect for a Thanksgiving treat. I wouldn’t mind having it earlier..but if thats your plans…I like it.


+ pick-e on November 11th, 2008 at 10:44 am said:

I see a DMC4 icon there. Will Capcom be selling a downloadable DMC4 for $30 ala Burnout? Please? naaah… Probably just a listing of the videos/wallpaper they put on PSN for the game. :(


+ Trustter on November 11th, 2008 at 10:58 am said:

I really like the idea. I am a fan of Capcom since when I was a kid.

For many years Resident Evil was the best game of my life, but things change you know… I hope I can have those good memories playing all the Resident Evil that Capcom will release (fingers crossed).

Good work Sony and Capcom!


+ EvoAnubis on November 11th, 2008 at 11:23 am said:

Great news!

John, remember what I told you on PSN. I meant it. In fact, on a related subject, where is that BC:R patch?


+ Spurs2120 on November 11th, 2008 at 12:23 pm said:

I remember the BC:R patch they were talking about, it most likely was said just to get some ps3 owners to buy the game


+ PS fanboy on November 11th, 2008 at 12:41 pm said:

Capcom, what happened monster hunter 3? u guys announced it bfore to d PS3 why did u swith it to wii instead? Make it a multiplatform game we dont care if its goes 2 xbox and wii just bring it 2 ps3!
nice update though!
if U guys can put best selling psn games on a low price it would be awesome!


+ yurinka on November 11th, 2008 at 1:16 pm said:

Hi guys, congratulations for the store! :)

But please, don’t use “some exclusive Capcom content headed to PlayStation Store”.

For us, exclusive Capcom content is Dead Rising, Tatsunoko vs Capcom, Monster Hunter 3 and the SF2HD beta, instead of PS1 games and non-free wallpapers.


+ yurinka on November 11th, 2008 at 1:20 pm said:

I remember another typical PSN “exclusives” compared to XBLA : the delays (specially in Europe) and the lack of Trophies.

Please guys fix these issues. If not, everybody with both consoles will continue to buy the games in 360.


+ Ajora on November 11th, 2008 at 1:28 pm said:

Great Stuff! I’m really glad to see that somebody is supporting Sony and the PS3…unlike many other developers -_-

Can we expect other things like this? Like from other companies?

And also bring us MH3 and we’re good!



+ DTS MAN on November 11th, 2008 at 1:35 pm said:

Seriously what is the big bloody secret with home? Why o why can we not get this???? Come on some infor please.



+ FritoZ on November 11th, 2008 at 1:52 pm said:


about Home-

i know! it’s already november 11th!!

man i hope they don’t push it back to december..


+ perrandy on November 11th, 2008 at 2:15 pm said:

i dont know whats the fascination with home.honestly, idk i have read from some ppl that are in the betas that is pretty boring and that there’s nothing to do over there.

lets see when they announce the open beta?!
for those of you guys that are hyped by this i hope its this year and not next…. LOL


+ Korlithiel on November 11th, 2008 at 3:20 pm said:

So when exactly will this be hitting the PSP store? Or is this just another meaningless update to PSP owners, that should have been tagged PS3 or some such thing rather clearly.


+ PooPuck on November 12th, 2008 at 6:27 am said:

I like the sound of exclusive PSN Capcom games but I hope this is a PS3 life cycle exclusive and not a month or two. I hope to see more Street Fighter content.


+ jazzyrider on November 12th, 2008 at 7:04 am said:

Nice. Suggestion on adding something different to the PSN store: hardware accessories like the BD remote, DS3, ps3 keypad, ps3 eyetoy, etc. I know the normal Sony store has some of these so maybe if it can be linked in some way or just added. Since our CC and address is stored, buying these items and then shipping them would be an easy process.


+ hopp on November 12th, 2008 at 9:49 am said:

this is all good and everything but im getting sick and tired of being lied to every week. i get news letters about these movies that are not there i know that,that is false advertising and something needs to be done if it isnt available i should not receive those emails please4 dont send anymore of the movies emails to people that just get pissed off when they see that.spent more than 3000 on my system and games. XBOX has these movies cant be a legal thing.


+ saiyanknight87 on November 12th, 2008 at 8:18 pm said:

We need marvel vs. capcom 2 again if that happens to come to the PSN I’ll put all my money in the PSN store! that game is essential for anybody who plays fighting games!!!

Please tell me it’s coming to the PSN i’d be most grateful!!!


+ saiyanknight87 on November 12th, 2008 at 8:37 pm said:

Also we need project justice and rival schools for the gaming fighter heads that would be epic along with the classic such as resident evil and even darkstalkers i mean man capcom has so many great games they need to support the titles that made them great!!!


+ Atomic on November 13th, 2008 at 7:43 am said:

Two words: Project Justice


+ zeke2040 on November 13th, 2008 at 8:34 am said:

holly kiwi batman, are you guys serious… this a dream come true… will there be some old classic from nes days or some playstation 2 game’s resident evil stuff or street fighter, or bioinc commando from 1970’s i think… its like an side scroller game… oh man, i hope they bring it all… :D
