    NeoGAF has found an ESRB rating and some photos of Marvel VS Capcom 2 for XBLA/PSN. If it's true it will be THE greatest news ever of all time.

    It's already released on PS2.

    Also this would go side by side with another recent MvC2 for XBLA rumor. Nice to hear! [​IMG]

    Maybe when they show the "360" and "PS3" then they mean that the game is for the Xbox and PS2 and can also be played on the 360 and PS3?

    Just that is my thought, does that make since to any one else?

    By that logic then Shadow of the Colossus on the ESRB's page would say "Playstation 3, Playstation 2." But it only says PS2.

    Marvel and Capcom have both been teasing about a potential new game for a while. I guess this is what they meant. A new game would be nice, but when thinking about it - How would they pull it off? A lot of characters in MvC2 were completely ripped from the previous Capcom VS series, and that character list in general was just massive. I wouldn't be able to see a third one pull it off, so a port of 2 is acceptable. [​IMG]

    Well they might be reprinting the old ps2 and xbox versions because they are so limited... and in demand. They lost the license right after the release so they are the most rare versions.

    The PS2 version was the worse one anyway. And again, even if they were reprinted then they wouldn't say "Xbox 360, Playstation 3" on the ESRB.
    And Marvel can give out multiple licenses at once you know. Like how Activision has a nice part of the license, Sega has Iron Man and Hulk for example.

    If they can reprint them, they can definitely offer them as XBLA and PSN games. I just don't want exclusive characters for either version bullshit like a lot of other games have been doing.

    This isn't anything to get excited about.

    Now, if MUGEN was working for PS3/360 or even a MvC3, now THAT would be news.

    Considering that you can try to find the PS2 version for, oh say $75 used at GameStop anymore..*cough*

    I wouldn't mind a reprint of it since I had been interested in the fighter for a while now. =\

    Yeah they only have licenses for the movie ones.

    Plus EA did have Spider-Man in their terrible fighter even when Activision had rights.

    Marvel hate what some of these companies have done to their franchises and have been hinting at working with Capcom again for a while now. I really hope Capcom get to do some good NEW stuff with these licenses.

    Actually, MvC2 is something to get excited about. A lot of people have always wanted to play it Online and now we finally can. Even a simple port can become acceptable if they add online to it, something that the hardcore MvC2 fans have been dying for ever since it's original Arcade release.

    Are you insane? MvC2 is infinitely more exciting than MUGEN! I think you haven't experienced the greatness that is MvC2.

    MvC2 is Capcom's own Mugen!

    It holds the current world record for most reused sprites in a single game [​IMG]

    I don't see what all the fuss is about...

    I got MvsC2 on XBOX already (for about £20), and an arcade stick to play it with(which I now use with my PC for MAME)
    Although it is fun, and I played it alot, I don't see it as epic...

    I would much rather prefer a third game. Balanced, with beautiful hand-drawn graphics,(and maybe a couple more modern non-streetfighter capcom reps...).
    Oh and of course the mandatory online play too. [​IMG]
