Marvel Vs Capcom 2 Arrives on PSN Today! — UPDATE

John Diamonon's Avatar Posted by 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

John – still impressed that you give out so much stuff and read the comments when there are so many ungrateful and rude comments made against you and your company.

Guys – nobody owes you anything. If a publisher doesn’t want your money, that’s their problem its not a personal insult.

@John Diamonon
I find it funny that you couldn’t detect that I didn’t buy Crapcom BS PR BS excuse. You should have learned by now John, some of us do not buy the BS.
Nothing against you John Diamonon, my hate it direct at Crapcom.

    i know it\’s not personal. ask any publisher..any one, if they have ever had a global launch for the PSN. it\’s never been done. now ask if they have ever done a simultanueous retail launch after that…never been done…

    and you can call BS?

soulrend said:

August 13th, 8:49 am

So it’s been established that we’ll see BoF 3 and 4 on the store, any possibility that we will ever see remakes of 1 and 2 in the future? Or a BoF 6…..but I know ya’ll want to stay away from the series for awhile, what a shame. All the BoF’s (5 too) were amazing.

Wow John, you’re a true Hip Hop head. Hopefully your affiliation with Raekwon didn’t stop you from getting the Slaughterhouse album.

@John Diamonon
I have nothing against you dude. I just hate the company you work for. If you think I am insluting you in any way, then I am sorry for that. My inslut and hate is directed toward Crapcom.

nerdmanwhippy said:

August 13th, 8:55 am

I’ll be a sad panda if it makes it too 500 while I’m at work : ( But maybe I’ll hit one of the other numbers, hopefully not 5000 as I’m already buying the retail one, can’t see needing 2 codes.

zero2kz said:

August 13th, 8:55 am

500 will be mine!
