GameStop lists PS3-only retail box for Marvel vs. Capcom 2


According to a new GameStop listing, PS3 owners who want to purchase the downloadable Marvel vs. Capcom 2 will have the option of purchasing a boxed retail copy. Of course, like other boxed releases for downloads, there won't be a game disc in there, but GameStop lists a bunch of stuff that the box will contain. Basically, it's a Collector's Edition of a downloadable game. Oddly, there's no Xbox 360 version of this item.

According to the product listing, the Marvel vs. Capcom 2 Retail Pack will release on August 13 for $19.99 ($5 more than the cost of the game) and include a redemption code (obviously), a DVD case, a disc containing exclusive wallpapers and other media, an 8-page manual, one month of free access to Marvel Digital Comics, and 2,000 Capcom Unity points, which are used on the Capcom site to participate in auctions.

Capcom offered no official comment on this release, so this will have to remain unconfirmed for now.
