Sony: New Store Category For Capcom

The PlayStation Network and Store continue to benefit from the continuous stream of updates and enhancements, and you may have noticed some of the small changes, like custom Store categories for Halloween. Well, get ready for another one coming this Thursday.

According to the official PlayStation blog, Sony will release a custom category for Capcom. As they remind us, Capcom has been an excellent supporter of the Network, and now they will have their very own category. This comes along with Age of Booty this week, but if you want more from Capcom, just feel free to browse around the specially created section. Obviously, everything there will be from Capcom and you can view all the content separated by title; there's everything from full game content to demos to themes and wallpapers, so don't miss out! Of course, now the question will be: what other publishers or developers will receive special treatment on the Store? EA? Activision? Konami? Clearly, Sony will want to highlight the more prominent game companies out there, but there are plenty of options. Being able to browse through your favorite developer's online content could be a very big bonus...

In other words, this could be the start of a new phenomenon, although we're certain Sony will continue to upgrade the Store as time goes on. It's just a matter of how and when.

Does this mean Capcom can freely update their section when and how they like?

All the ones you mentioned John will definitely be there. Now, how about Square Enix? ... Haha. I doubt it. They're MS lovers.

lol...yeah...they are. Too bad for them. I had $$$ for them. I guess it goes to SEGA and Factor 5 now.

Yep. And they were one of my favorite developers on the PS1/PS2. I bought everything Square, and then SquareEnix, even importing games that didn't make it stateside!

Anyway, if you look at the most wanted lists for Japan, more people want Last Remnant on the PS3 than the 360.

What I want to know is why TriAce isn't showing the PS2 some love. Where are our versions of Infinite Undiscovery (Dumbest Title Ever!!!) and Star Ocean?

Orvisman, it is official that the PS3 will be getting Star Ocean 4. I don't know if we'll have to wait, though.

I expect more companies to follow suit. Maybe someday they will let us underlings have our own little pages on the network. Super Mondo Mega LBP Level for 1.99!!

I expected this to happen. They already have a search category in their video section that uses the studios.

If there isn't ever a Square/(Enix) category there. Then we'll have a revelation - like when they ditched Nintendo and stuff.
:[ sad face

And would every country's specific store have similiar downloads from Capcom? Or will there be copyright restrictions. Cause' right now New Zealand's local PSNStore has like 40-50% less stuff than the normal (USA, big country) stores.

Can I vote on Namco-Bandai? They could re-release all the old Ace Combats and finally bring a new one to the PS3? What ever happened to the rumours about Combat 6 coming to the system this year? Did that just die? I want a good flight/fighter with online dogfighting....But not bad enough to go buy an X-box for it.

i'm still sore at capcom for refusing (or however you interpret it) to release monster hunter for either the PS3 or PSP, opting for the Wii.

not that i have anything against the Wii, but MHF/2 is (arguably) the single reason the PSP is as popular as it is, and this fact is most assuredly true in Japan. With such a huge (and seemingly dedicated) fanbase, ready to devour the sequel with open arms, it doesn't make much sense to just decide to ignore them.

MH is a niche title already, so breaking out with the ridiculous success that it did with the PSP titles on a system that is almost entirely casual is going to be daunting. I have yet to hear of a Casual-genre sleeper hit, albeit Braid comes close, depending on who you talk to.

I love capcom thats my favorite devs.
Man Im such a big fan of capcom and I know there not going to dissapoint in the future.
There probly going to give us every fighting game they made n put it on the ps store. Already heard rumors about marvel vs. capcom2 coming to the store and street fighter alpha 3 and street fighter3.
That would be nice if they release sf4 on the capcom section and give us tons a new downloadable charcters down the line. What I truly wanted capcom to do for this street fighter game was let us create r own character. Street fighter is the only fighting game and tekken that have not done that yet.
