Marvel vs. Capcom Origins Now Available On PSN

Just a quick heads up, folks: Marvel vs. Capcom Origins is now available on PlayStation Network for $14.99.

For those not in the know, Origins is a compilation of Marvel Super Heroes and Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes with some slick new extras. There's GGPO-online play (8-player lobbies), in-game achievements, Spectator Mode, a handful of graphical filters, and more goodies.

Xbox 360 users can pick the game up tomorrow via Xbox Live Arcade for 1200 Microsoft Points. In the meantime, feel free to grab Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 at half-price and some discounted DLC!

  1. I still don't understand why Marvel Vs Street Fighter wasn't part of the mix too. It came out dead in the middle of those two games... <.<; (and was my favorite of the bunch)

    Still... if this version of MvC plays like the Arcade and not like the home version, then that might be worth having. The original console version was... just sad. -.-;

  2. MvSF is pretty fucking broken

    I'm pretty sure MvC is the arcade version. Why would they port the Playstation Version?

    The Dreamcast version was perfect. It even had a 4 player mode.

  3. @second Anon:

    MvSF was broken? This is news to me.

    Whenever I would talk with people in the FGC about MvSF, the main thing they'd mention on why the game wasn't as popular as the rest was, as they claimed "it was so balanced it became boring".

    It's actually MSH and MvC1 that were broke as tits. XD

    But at the same time, were so fun, too. If I get ahold of this sometime, I'm gonna get back to usiing my Rockman-Evil Ryu or Rockman-Strider team from back in the day.

  4. @Amir:

    Does this count as broken?


    I too, think MSH Vs SF should have been included. It was my favorite out of the Vs series, mainly for how colorful it was, the music was different and enjoyable, and then there's Norimaro lol.

  5. @Shin:

    Considering most of them are all Meter combos, or super situational Happy Birthdays that would never happen, I'd say that is extremely tame compared to what was possible in MSH, XvSF and MvC1.

    If you're doing a combo that uses 3 Supers and you didn't kill your opponent in MvSF or any VS series game, you were just bad at this game. XD

  6. Hey Protodude, have you seen this video for MvCO?


    Really funny animation from Marvel.
