Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 And Marvel vs. Capcom 2 Leaving Xbox Live And PSN


Marvel vs. Capcom 2 and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 are going to be leaving the Xbox Live and PlayStation Network stores, Capcom have announced, recommending that you grab the two games while you can if you still want them.

The last day that DLC for these games will be available on the two stores is December 26th on Xbox Live, December 17th on PSN in North America, and December 19th on PSN in Europe.

At present, a 50% discount sale is being offered on all DLC on PSN, while discounts for Xbox Live may be announced in the near future.

Capcom haven’t said why the two games are being removed from the Xbox Live and PSN store, but one would imagine that it has to do with contract issues between Marvel and Capcom. Type-Moon fighter Fate/Unlimited Codes was removed from the PSP in a similar manner last year.
