Capcom, one of the largest publishers of PlayStation Network titles, is planning to launch a branded PlayStation Network Store.
"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," said John Diamonon, product manager of Capcom's PSN titles.
This is a major step forward in the establishment of Capcom as a "digital brand."
"With digital, that object can be highlighted in about 20 different ways," said Diamonon. "I think Sony is first to recognize that. The more opportunities that someone has a chance to see or be exposed to our content ... the more likely it is that someone will give a Capcom title a shot."
Expect other major PSN publishers to follow suit. The Capcom PlayStation Store will be available this November alongside the launch of Age of Booty.

So after Capcom ignores the Playstation community the first year, Sony is now inviting them in for coffee?

nice move by sony. Looking forward to more company stores like this. Maybe Konami will see this and change their idea of sticking to their own konami ID site.

They are obviously going to have a sort by publisher section now that the publishers can customise the look off, a very handy feature to have

I think the guys behind grand tourismo should do that. So all things to come to the PS store are good things, no matter what!

Lets hope that other companies follow suit.

Imagine if EA said to Sony "yeah we would like a store space too, but were afraid it might be too difficult to program for"
I will never forget EA saying that the PS3 was too difficult to program games for.
I had a new thought, yes Capcom having their own store is a very good idea, i would like to see other Devs using this feature too to sell their stuff, i look forward to watching in the coming months.

How about putting up Dino Crisis and REs? It'd be great.

LOL @ 15 Aye how many companies will say "we would do it, but to customise the Store is too difficult". I'd imagine it to be Bebo-esque custom options.. Good news tho, I reckon it'll be very wise for companies to intigrate their shops into PSN directly, tho for current games, they need patches, so expect MOANING devs...

psn id: gingo... this is quite a great idea actually as long as more companies actually do, do it so its not just ps store and capcom store
