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!

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?

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

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 said:

November 10th, 7:44 pm

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

November 10th, 7:51 pm

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.

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)

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

    John Diamonon said:

    November 11th, 5:33 am

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

OverlordSpike said:

November 10th, 8:20 pm

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 said:

November 10th, 8:40 pm

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

GGCAN said:

November 10th, 8:53 pm

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 said:

November 10th, 9:11 pm

Where is Monster Hunter for the PS3 dammit?

P_tear_griffin said:

November 10th, 9:36 pm

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

B1ack_Mage said:

November 10th, 9:50 pm

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 said:

November 10th, 10:01 pm

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

acerazer1 said:

I’m still upset that Clover Studios was dissolved!

smokey_vols said:

November 10th, 10:30 pm

Great news, I just got a $20 PSN card i’ll be sure and purchase something from there is Thursday. Can we get some PS1 Capcom games please? RE 1, 2, 3 would be nice. Come on, make it happen :)

This is great news. I hope other third party companies follow.

LordChocoSlime said:

November 10th, 10:58 pm

It’s great that Capcom will get it’s own section of the PS Store. It would also be cool if the Capcom store features some downloadable PSP games (especially Mega Man 9). I feel that would help ease the pain of the lack of updates the PSP section of the PS Store received in recent weeks.

Undocumented Spot On Blogspot said:

November 10th, 11:00 pm

I’m so looking for that Age of Booty.

LordChocoSlime said:

November 10th, 11:02 pm

Though very unlikely, another cool thing I would like to see on the Capcom store is new downloadable content for Mega Man Powered Up. Some new Scenery & Enemy Pack and even Robot Masters & special weapons from other Mega Man games would be great.

bader said:

November 10th, 11:07 pm

Resident evil 1,2,3 .
please CAPCOM make it happen ,
U R the best .

Sackboom said:

November 10th, 11:25 pm

Okami on the Store please!

WHAT said:

November 11th, 12:35 am

I like the changing backgrounds. The three bar menu system on the left should be left for special features. Integration for news, coming soon, and when/if Home comes, a way to communicate puzzles/contest/DLC directly form the game publishers.

Looks good. Let’s have SFIIHD now. Will it have trophies? Hope so.

VenomX said:

Is this US only or will you throw us Europeans a bone perhaps?

    US only but hopefully SCEE will follow suit.

Fersis said:

November 11th, 2:36 am

SF III :3rd Strike with online play would be huuuuuuuuuuuuuuge.

Rogerjak said:

November 11th, 2:36 am

@ Jensd

Yeah, a bone once in a while would be good….

I hope you guys celebrate this with lots of free stuff :P

kspraydad said:

November 11th, 3:08 am

John…great news that you have a new video for SSF but it is the XBOX360 VERSION you are showing.

Since this here article is on a PlayStation site, advertising your PlayStation store..perhaps you could be so kind to link us to a PlayStation video of the game?

Wilester said:

November 11th, 3:20 am

If SCEE have actually arranged for this to come to Europe I’ll be very very surprised.

But if David Reeves has anything to do with it, it’ll be a definate no no. I swear to god the man’s on a crusade to make the PlayStation brand dissolve in Europe.

November 11th, 3:34 am

Any chance of a ‘Taito’ Store??? :P
I would love to buy and play their Old-skool games on PSN :)

p-s-3 said:

November 11th, 3:36 am

I want all these on PSN –

Original Versions of…

Space Invaders
Dig Dug
Bubble Bobble
Rally X
Pole Position
Rainbow Islands
Return of the Invaders
Missile Command
…Endless Old-Skool List really :P

Fersis said:

November 11th, 3:54 am

Oh and dont forget :
Final Fight HD with online co-op !!!!

Fersis said:

November 11th, 6:02 am

Oh and of course… Final Fight HD with online co op AND Fersis as director :p

I can’t wait for Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix. It’s been on my waiting list for too long, so I hope it goes through QA smoothly. Thank you again for bringing this to us Street Fighter fans, and look forward to seeing more classic games redone in HD.

GueroLonghorn said:

RE4 & Okami would be amazing.

November 11th, 7:37 am

Hello John,

may I ask when are you planning to release flock? I was thrilled when I saw the video at Leipzig GC at Cacpom booth when I was waiting for a presentation of SF4. IMHO it was the best game shown on the whole convention.

    Flock\’s coming out soon. I\’ll start blogging about it next month. It\’s going to be a sleeper hit.
