PS3 fans will get an advance sneak peak at the upcoming re-release of Marvel v. Capcom 2 for PSN and Xbox Live this Thursday, April 30, 2009 in an exclusive, free demo for the game.
Interesting news. So will XBLA get a demo early, or only when the game itself comes out?
who cares :) This is like jesus just came down from heaven and said "check this out broseph!" then you say "broseph?" then he vanishes.
lol the good news for the ps3 is never-ending !! Let the exclusives keep flowing in ! Who said you need subscriptions to pay for exclusive content ?!
@Whitto This has nothing to do with exclusivity but the fact that XBLA trials can only come out at the same time as the full game.
Marvel is gay.
so are you but you don't hear us b!tching about it :D see what I did there?
Glad to see Sony finally gets that exclusivity matters but I was buying this one regardless. Thank you Capcom for giving us what we wanted. Square, take notice.
i still have my ps2 copy. for those of you with large 720p/1080p that cant stand the blurryness: in xmb video options, custom set your video output to 480p and then boot game. Game looks much better that way.
BLuKhaos must be a DC fanboy. I didn't know comicbook fanboys still exist.
too bad for those people on ebay selling the dc and ps2 version for $80+ your copies are worthless now well not really but definetly not $80
I'm glad it's based off the dreamcast code.
this is awesome news, scratch that , its retarded amazing news and like SF2 HD, the Playstation 3 will be my console for choice for this fighter. Now here's just hoping we don't need to get an episode of Qore for the Demo, lol
Whoa! I'm still shocked that Sony for once got an exclusive "something, anything" for the very first time from capcom! How on earth did this happen?!
The thing is with XBLA, the demos are the full game and you just download the unlock code if you choose to buy it. So its not hard to believe that for that reason having demos of XBLA games before release is not allowed.
download the demo. and pay to unlock full version with add on taking less memory than the demo..
its a freaking demo. who cares about exclusitivity.
sack_boi pretty much sums it up... arcade demos are full version games but you unlock by getting the code after release
YES! I actually went out and bought another dreamcast and bought MVSC2 on ebay, just so I could play it. I love this game and I'm so glad its coming to XBLA/PSN. Now, bring me PowerStone2 and Skies of Arcadia. :)
I will be playing this on Thursday and I will think about all you 360 owners who have to wait for full edition to be released to play the game in HD glory.... And then wonder why you chose a 360 over a ps3... Get both like me :p
Isn't that the version with the most glitches?
WTF, GTFO, no flipping way. ...seriously? unholy Bleepsauce....your kidding me...Bleep yeah ! I wonder if this will work with my universal slightly cheap arse arcade stick. Last time I checked SFIV did not but SSFIITHDRemix did. Hmmm.
That is strange? Why would they do that?
Nothing to do with sales..because then it would have been exclusive to 360 its just that XBLA trials can only come out at the same time as the full game.
Japan would like a word with you
I guess it would be fair trade as Xbox360 owners get the Bionic Commando demo. Anyways can't wait to get MVC2 on PSN cuz you know we can gameshare.
I would really like to know.... why was my comments deleted when it was nothing fanboyish , im pretty sure this one will also be deleted and result in me being banned and bubble loss , but this is the reason why I rarely comment here anymore the mods are the biggest fanboys on this site ...look at this thread there are fanboy comments all over the place and none are deletd yet honest opinions are deleted ...just because someone got offended..
Its only some moderators cus i have been banned for retarded reasons. Some mods in here are just 360 fan boys.
Epic announcement edit: - It’s based on the Dreamcast code base (the best version!) - There is online (same system as SSF2TR) - HD upscaling options - All 56 characters will be unlocked at the start for immediate play (I actually wanted the unlocking but that's ok) - Independent music volume controls and support of custom soundtracks on PS3 and 360 we deemed an important feature
And its only 3 days away.
XBLA titles have demo when the full game is released. Since the game isn't releasing any time soon they'll probably end up doing the same thing they did with the SFII Turbo Beta /Commando 3 game.
isnt red fraction demo out on XBLA and it comes out in june
Red Faction is not an XBLA title, Marvel vs Capcom is. Demos for full games can be released early, but XBLA titles have to wait until release day for the full game.
OMG, Sev was right,well sort of. He said MVC2 will be exclusive to PSN, I guess he meant the MVC2 DEMO will be exclusive.
Only Two-player local matches in the demo? You will need 2 controllers to play? So no Player vs CPU in the demo?
guess u didnt read the "DEMO" part read the achievements http://www.xbox360achieveme... bottom ones say arcade mode  k. thought he meant the game since that demo part wasnt in his question before. but the street fighter demos were always like that so i dunno y this would be different
and I guess you dont get it. he means in order to play the demo, you need 2 controllers. At least, that's what he is asking.
Yeah that's what I am asking because in SF2 HD Remix Demo on 360 you only can play with 2 controllers. So this demo is PS3 should be the same way.
i guess so, SFIIHDR was the same, and i was not able to play it. 1P vs CPU might be a better way to advertise your product
The freaking title doesn't even make sense! PSN Exclusive "PS3 fans will get an advance sneak peak at the upcoming re-release of Marvel v. Capcom 2 for PSN". So which means PS3 users will get the demo early "and Xbox Live this Thursday, April 30, 2009 in an exclusive, free demo for the game." Thursday is April 30, what the hell? That doesn't even make sense.
I just hope the release date isn't to far behind, forget the demo give me the game!
"And as an added bonus, some of you will get to play it sooner than you think. The US PlayStation network will have the demo available for download this week (Europe’s PSN should follow not far after). Surprise. :)" http://www.capcom-unity.com...
good to know its based on the dreamcast code. the xbox/ps2 versions were plagued with jaggies and sound issues
PSN getting some nice exclusive content (The joker, and now this) , as a PS3 owner, i'm not used to this. But you gotta love it! PS3 is really turning the corner hard.
my second approved story! I r winnar again! :D
Finally, Capcom is showing the PS3 some love.
XBLA demos never release before the actual game, thats basically all this means.
Marvel vs Capcom is one of the greatest fighting franchises of all time. It brings tears of joy to Dark Sniper's eyes to know that PLAYSTATION®3 will once again be receiving the superior version of this critically and commercially acclaimed title. With the precision of the Dual Shock 3, Sony Snipers across the nation will be enjoying classic 2D gaming nirvana on a console that deserves nothing but the best AAA exclusives and superior multiplatform titles. PLAYSTATION®3 is the gamer's machine. But this is Dark Sniper simply stating the obvious. Capcom is aware that the audience is longing for a reinvigorating feel to the gaming industry and feels that PLAYSTATION®3 is the perfect outlet to showcase their love and passion for it's fans. Microslaves, consider yourself dead on arrival. Capcom wouldnt be caught dead showcasing this premiere title on your garbage platform. With the Xbox 360's horrid controller design, Dark Sniper wishes you luck on performing even the simplest double jump or super move. Dark Sniper thinks he's going to simply sit back with his favorite alcoholic beverage and enjoy Marvel Vs Capcom not only using his Dual Shock 3, but taking complete advantage of the PLAYSTATION®3's versatility by using his Sega Saturn usb controller specifically designed for fighting game purposes. $niper
Haven't seen you in a while DS, I missed your comment on here it's nice to know you still have the Touch! My madden game suck right now but I'll send you a challenge soon so be ready.
DarkSniper, whether you're serious or not, I love your comments. They are so well-written and entertaining. Bubbles for that.
get your facts checked first DS, XBLA has weekly arcade games, these games have actual release dates, and april 29th is dedicated to banjo tooie, a classic game that wont even come to psn...ouch.
Lol that's how I know you're hurting deep down inside, when you reply to the mighty God known as DarkSniper with a douchie, idiotic statement like that. This is Marvel Vs. Capcom, okay? No one cares about Banjo or Rare anymore, and I speak for everybody when I say that. Nothing you say can change the fact that 360 owners just got teabagged by Capcom.
errrrrr wats banjo?? :S
lol ghost what are you like 12 or something? is DS the leader of your gang, ohh oh no i cant speak my mind because im scared of sparta and his ps3 fanboy gang! gimme a break loser, if it makes you feel so big because you get an early demo of a multi plat arcade game then good for you. but in responce to your leaders rants about capcoms love to anything playstation...why havnt you heard anything about lost planet 2 yet? huh? yeah little man im talkin smack back at you, what you gonna do about it, bet you are going all red reading this, about to blow a blood vessel huh? MVC2 is a good game, but its an old game, and an arcade game, you honestly think i would care that a demos comeing out early on psn then you are deluded and clutching at straws. and nobody cares about banjo tooie or rare, well obviously you do judging by the tears you seem to be crying, next.
lol Dark Sniper u made some valid points, and no one can match your style. but u were wrong about Capcom love for PS3 and New Zealander was right to call u out on it. P.S. sonyfans: hitting disagree when every1 can see NZ is right just makes u lose credibility...
let out of the padded room then?
even though your comments reek of fanboy i must say your comment is well written bubbles to you:)
Is it too soon to ask for a Third Strike with online play?
Oh god, yes please!
*faints* *wakes up and says:* "Power Stone 2 please!"
* Two-player local matches * Six available characters – Ryu, Chun-Li, Strider, Spider-Man, Iron Man and Wolverine * Seven selectable environments * Upscaled 1080p graphics * Widescreen or 4:3 aspect ratio * Two graphic filter options for character sprites * And other cool options to check out am i the only one schocked(?) by this ??? This is the first time i've seen a fighting game demo with more than 3 characters !! usually 2. With the cop and robbers burnout coming soon and the great games ( uncharted infamous )i just don't know witch game to purchase first !!!
still mad theres no magneto, storm or sentinel in the demo :( out of that list the only ones i really use are stryder and iron man.
demo has 6 characters, because the game is 3v3 tag team style.
OMG they actually give you Wolverine for the demo?!?!?!?! Now that's cool!!
I've been waiting for this game forever, I seriously can't wait to pwn online
psn demo only woohoo no demo for bots
I get it on my PS3 and the lost planet 2 demo on my xbox (exclusive to XBL).
crap, i can't even get to try the demo. booooo!
