PlayStation vs Capcom VGAs Viewing Party this Saturday

PSvsCapcom

Over the past few weeks, we’ve been working with our good friends at Capcom on getting PS3s down to LA for the soon-to-be-legend-wait-for-it-dary Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Food Fight. It’ll definitely be the place to be leading up to the Spike Video Game Awards on Saturday evening.

You know, the VGAs where you’re going to see the debut of the new Resistance 3 trailer (I haven’t even seen it yet), where God of War III will be contending for Game of the Year, and where who knows what other awesome things will happen? Those VGAs?

PlayStation Blog VGA 09 Meet-Up

Well, like last year, we’re holding a VGAs viewing party in LA, and you’re invited [pointing at you]. We think fun experiences are best shared with friends – friends who are picking up the tab. So we’ve teamed up with Capcom to transition their Food Fight into a viewing party for the VGAs broadcast. So please, drop by, play Marvel vs Capcom 3 on PS3, eat delicious food, and watch the World Premieres* unfold among friends. Be sure to RSVP here!

What more do you need? Oh, how about the details:

Where: Kim Sing Theatre, 722 N. Figueroa Street, Downtown LA
When: Saturday, December 11 from 4pm – 8pm
Cost: FREE. I mean, come on! All ages welcome.
RSVP: On our Facebook Event page.

It’s going to be a fun event, and we’ve got lots of room, so bring the family. See you there!

Reading the headline made me imagine what a PS vs Capcom crossover would be like. That would be so awesome haha. Ratchet and Clank vs Ryu! Jak and Daxter vs Wesker! Sly vs Nathan Drake! xD

Cool, and tell Capcom to make sure the PS3 version of MvC3 isn’t the inferior one like they’ve been doing with all of their HD multiplats lately.

I’ll be happy to DVR the VGA’s and fast forward to all the exclusive trailers :-P Not gonna waste 2 to 3 hours of my life on a reward show. We’re gamers, I think we can discern for ourselves what really is game of the year material etc.

Really? Good friends at Capcom? Even with their blatant favoritism of the Xbox and gimping the PS3 versions of their games? They complain about the lack of space on the DVD while never bothering to utilize the space advantages of bluray. I used to be a very big Capcom fan but they have done little to show their passion for games this generation.

I was wondering will the Capcom event still start at it’s original time 11AM? Or was everything moved up to 4PM?

    The original Capcom event still starts at 11. Then at 4pm, it becomes the viewing party. Feel free to come early!

Will be there EXTRA early. Last time i checked Capcom said there was 100 spaces has that changed now?

Wow, that’s over by Chinatown, darn near Dodger Stadium. I could go, but I don’t like the VGA’s at all. It seems like one big commercial filled with questionable award winners and few worthwhile moments.

Last year’s was fun! To anyone complaining about the VGAs themselves, while the event is about that show, it’s much more than that. There’s good food, good people, and a great time. Last year there were prizes raffled off too, no mention of that here but I don’t really care about that anyway! :)

    + Jeff Rubenstein on December 7th, 2010 at 4:12 pm said:

    It’s a possibility, but due to the open ended nature of the event (the MvC3 part starts at 11am), I’m trying to figure out how to work that :)

Do something in Seattle, like the UC2 event last year!!! Too bad I was working the event as opposed to participating. Well I got some free swap out of it and connections.

*Patiently waits for next Sony event in Seattle*

It’s great to hear about the party and all but do you guys plan up updating the Store today?? It really ought to be updated in the morning and not all late in the evening.

Man I wish Canada was closer to LA :( or maybe I could use the subspace highway hmm…

Also, just some errors I’m experiencing with Firefox. Sometimes it locks me out of this blog and the euro blog for a certain period of time saying some 400 error occurred but when I try with IE everything is fine.

Anyone know issues/fixes? Sid? Jeff? KHANNNNNNNNNNNN!?

I agree with InphiniteWun, store updates… pretty please? should completely change your Tuesday schedule around, morning is much better, I’ve been checking the blog for the update all these other posts are pretty useless on a Tuesday when I am waiting for the update

@1
Absolutely not. Sony team up with those re-hashers? NO. The only thing Capcom can do is make one good game, then make 10 different versions of that one good game (trying to squeeze every dime out of that particular game), while also decreasing quality of said game.

Capcom sucks, Resident Evil 5 proves it.

Seriously, what’s not to love?

Unfortunately, I live very, and I mean very far away from where the event will take place. But it’s OK, I’ll be keeping an eye on it via the awesome internet, just like I will be doing so with the VGAs.
