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

Ro Hernandez's Avatar Posted by 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!

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?

schwaa said:

We want RE 1,2, and 3 on PS store. This can’t be a very hard thing to push through. I would buy all 3.

Pretty cool, it’s nice to see Sony rewarding developers for their support.

Hey, that’s pretty neat! I’ll definitely be looking for some Capcom games.

Oh, one more thing…


Thank you.

DMeisterJ said:

November 10th, 5:26 pm

Resident Evil 2.

That’d be really nice with this release too.

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.

tirminyl said:

November 10th, 5:27 pm

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!

donporoto said:

Nice! Waiting for SF II TURBO HD!

PyroJack said:

November 10th, 5:27 pm

This is actually a pretty good idea. Good job.

Emadeowa said:

November 10th, 5:28 pm

awesome idea, now give us some classics!!!!!

NewYork214 said:

November 10th, 5:31 pm

hmmm a capcom store without their biggest franchise(Resident Evil). hopefully 1-3 get released on PSN. o and dino crisis would be good to. actually i would like that more but i still would like RE lol.

Clinton514 said:

November 10th, 5:34 pm

Gotta give respect to Capcom for leading the way on the digital front. No doubt they’ve been doing a good thing for gamers all around.

I can’t wait to see their HOME support.

TheInfectedBy590 said:

November 10th, 5:36 pm

Looks great! I hope more game companies start doing this as well!

black_ryuk said:

November 10th, 5:38 pm

They really deserve it.
I also hope we’ll be seeing more capcom games *cough*Darkstalkers*cough cough*Power stone*cough*
Also will any other developers get this kind of treatment?

PS3Diablo said:

November 10th, 5:50 pm

Thanks for showing PSN the love Capcom ! I am a huge supporter of PSN games and can’t wait to see more cool stuff. Age of Booty looks good, but I think I speak for everyone when I say “Bring on RE 2” !!

Spurs2120 said:

November 10th, 5:51 pm

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 said:

    November 10th, 7:17 pm

    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.

Strider HD exclusively on PSN confirmed!

Letters2Kay said:

November 10th, 5:54 pm

Awesome- CAPCOM and SONY. The best combo in video games! I have most of their current PSN content and can’t wait for SFIIHD. I’d love to see more Capcom content in the future! Resident Evil series PSOne Classics would be nice… :)

Strider2K99 said:

November 10th, 5:55 pm

I’m a huge fan of Capcom, so this is great news.

I hope more developers and publishers join with storefronts like Capcom.

Ghostm said:

November 10th, 5:56 pm

How about you guys talk to Capcom about getting Monster Hunter 3 back on the PS3? Now that would be impressive!

Wheels86 said:

November 10th, 5:57 pm

That’s pretty cool

wolverine81 said:

November 10th, 6:02 pm

can’t wait to check it out!

cb_32 said:

November 10th, 6:02 pm

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

Squamden said:

November 10th, 6:06 pm

@ 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 said:

November 10th, 6:09 pm

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

    Ro Hernandez said:

    November 11th, 9:28 am

    New Capcom items will still show up under New Releases as well as under Capcom Store.

Zezzler said:

November 10th, 6:18 pm

Will this ‘Capcom Store’ be its own icon is the PlayStation Network section of the XMB or just a page in the Regular store?
And any plans for the other Mega Man games to port to PSN(Especially Mega Man 2)?

    This new category will appear in the PlayStation Storet.

Nice! It looks sweet! so not to bug, but when are we going to see some more store updates for the PSP? I mean its sweet that the psp has a store now but I’ve only seen like one update for it =-( but keep up the good work guys! (and girls!)

technodoll said:

November 10th, 6:24 pm

Great; now give us Mega Man Legends 1 and 2; with captions, if possible.

lakaihigh said:

November 10th, 6:39 pm

very awesome! this should be for all devs on the PS store not just capcom. just my 2 cents anyway.


gorillapimp said:

November 10th, 6:46 pm

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?

L said:

November 10th, 6:46 pm

I hope other brands will do this like Square, Insomniac etc.

NeoMagus said:

November 10th, 6:47 pm

Please give us SSFII HD Remix !!

FritoZ said:

November 10th, 6:58 pm

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\’d love to do something for Home. I can\’t comment on anything at this point.

gorillapimp said:

November 10th, 6:59 pm

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.

    November 10th, 7:10 pm

    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.

gorillapimp said:

What would you do for a Klondike bar?
