Capcom a “prolific PSN publisher,” receives branded PS Store for effort
The first in what is likely to be a long series, Capcom has earned the keys to its very own digital PSN storefront. Why? Because, as Capcom product manager John Diamonon said, the publisher is “supporting Playstation Network like no other company.”
“Out of all of the third-party companies making use of the digital space, [Sony] recognizes Capcom is one of the best partners for content,” he told Edge.
The Capcom-branded piece of digital real estate is set to launch in November and will be the first of its kind.
Regarding an Xbox 360 equivalent, however, Capcom brass wasn’t quite as gung-ho.
“As far as Microsoft goes–how can I say this diplomatically–there are things I think they’d like to do to promote content in multiple ways, and I think they’ll get there eventually… but they’re not there yet,” said Capcom business chap, Christian Svensson.
Now if Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 christens the PS Store’s new section, our money will be forfeit. Take us, Capcom.
