The DLC that was released yesterday for Marvel Vs Capcom 3 hit a snag in the early going but Capcom has issued a clarification on how to download the characters. If you bought the special edition of Marvel Vs Capcom 3 you are eligible to download the items free of charge. If not, you can still download them from either the PlayStation Store or Xbox Live.
If you bought the Xbox 360 Version of the Special Edition of Marvel Vs Capcom 3, the code is on the back of the art book. THIS IS NOT AN XBOX LIVE CODE. It’s a code that you put into the redeem system at the Marvel Vs Capcom website. You get there by visiting this now dead redemption page. Once you use your redeem code the generator will release the actual code to be input into the Xbox Live code redeem on the dashboard.
If you bought the PS3 Special Edition of Marvel Vs Capcom 3, the code is on the back of the art book. THIS CODE CAN BE ENTERED ON THE PSN.
If you bought the standard edition, you aren’t gonna be able to get the items for free. Just visit the appropriate blades for the service you are using and download them items as usual. Each character is 400 MSP or $5.
