Marvel Vs Capcom 2 Arrives on PSN Today! — UPDATE

John Diamonon's Avatar + Posted by John Diamonon on Aug 13, 2009 // Product Marketing Manager, Capcom

UPDATE: Your friend John D has officially overloaded the PSB servers with his gigantic comment contest. In response, we have temporarily disabled comments for this post. But fear not…the contest lives on! The first 10 people to message John Diamonon at PSN ID: HIERO9D3 with their name and address get a free vinyl!

What’s new PS Nation? Me? Well, I’m still recovering from all the Rock the Bells festivities last weekend where we sponsored Raekwon and MC Supernatural. And no, Capcom’s got beef with no one. That’s what’s up.

Anyway, it’s my pleasure to announce that Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 arrives on PSN today for only $14.99. (Take that eBay!). Go check out the reviews and you’ll find out that this is THE definitive version, complete with new hi-res graphics, widescreen support and lag-free, online play. Marvel was nice enough to provide an exclusive offer to the PSN faithful. The first 15,000 purchasers of the full game will receive a code for a free one month subscription to Marvel Digital Comics! If you are one of the lucky ones, you’ll receive an email sometime early next week with your redemption code.

MVC2 - PLAYSTATION Store

Wait, there’s more. Since I know you all have mixed feelings about the original Jazz soundtrack, we decided to implement in-game XMB music so you can choose what tracks you listen to while executing your 100-hit DHCs on unsuspecting n00bs. “I’m gonna take you for a ride. I’m gonna take you for a ride. I’m gonna take you for a ride.”

Speaking of music, we collaborated with some of hip hop’s true artists to come up with a mix tape inspired by the game. The soundtrack includes songs from Talib Kweli, Raekwon, Hieroglyphics, Living Legends, E-40, Planet Asia, Havoc from Mobb Deep, Mc Supernatural, DJ Qbert, Oh No, DJ Toure and more. If you were lucky enough to go to Comic-Con a few weeks ago and snag one of the super limited vinyls we pressed, well, congrats! I see you up on eBay, don’t lie. We will be offering the full soundtrack on PSN next week, don’t trip.

MvC2 Vinyl

Oh, and I’m offering one of these limited vinyls to post #5000 plus a code of the game (Continental US shipping only! PM me your name and address if you win.).

MvC2 Box

Did I mention there’s a limited edition, retail package of MvC2 for GameStop available today (I know I didn’t.)? If you see one, pick it up. It includes a PS3 box, and codes for the game and the Marvel Digital Comics one month subscription for only $14.99. Why even bother if you can download it directly from the PSN you ask? Well, you don’t have to use your credit card, you get a collectors box and it’s the same price. OK?!?

Lastly, I know many of you are upset that you had to wait two weeks for the game. Hey, don’t let those “other” fanboys get you down. This was the first time we had to coordinate a true global launch while synching up with the release of a retail package, and it wasn’t easy. I’m glad we could at least offer you the exclusive Marvel offer plus the upcoming soundtrack next week.

I’ll be back in a couple weeks to talk about our next fighting game, Fate/unlimited codes, designed for the PSPgo and exclusive to the PSN!

Peace,
John “HIERO9D3” Diamonon

Thanks for the info John. I have to admit, I’ve come to really enjoy the music associated with these launches, so I’m looking forward to the soundtrack next week. With that said, can we get an idea on pricing for it?

Yea. I was at the store and they told me to just come back tomorrow and get the retail package…so I left and bought a PSN Card from Game Crazy instead because I didn’t wanna have to go back today.

I’ve been waiting on this game ALL WEEK and I’m not even that good at it. lol

I’m really glad you guys were honest about the delay. When the Bethesda rep came in here to post about the Fallout 3 DLC, and completely ignored the issue, as well as comments from users who wanted an answer (even as she responded to others), it just felt like a slap in the face from a developers who doesn’t care about anything other than our wallets. It was a really bad look for Bethesda, and I’m glad Capcom’s representatives are a lot more open.

I’m looking forward to getting this today, hopefully I’ll be one of the first 5,000, if not, I’ll still be enjoying this classic favorite from my childhood.

So how about Mega Man Legends 3.

So we get the game 2 week later on the PS3 while the xbox 360 had it for over 2 weeks now? We did not get a word from Capcom on why the game was on the xbox 360 two weeks before the PS3.
I think these kind of acts by CrapCom shows how much they care about the PS3 fanbase. Oh and do not give up that Playstation Classic BS that is coming to the PS3 later this year. If those games was on the original xbox, then they would have been on xbox live also.

I find it funny that Crapcom comes on here with give any reason why the game has been on xbox live for over 2 weeks now. I think we all know how much Crapcom cares about PS3 owners.
Oh and no one gives me that BS about Crapcom classic coming to the PSN later this year. If those games was on the original xbox, then they would have already been on xbox live.
