Capcom Arcade Cabinet is finally coming to PSN and XBLA digital platforms on February 12th, that’s next week. Black Tiger will be the first playable game on release day with a free demo, or can be bought with Game Pack 1 for $4.99/400MSP along with Avengers and 1943: The Battle of Midway.

The XBLA version of the demo will allow players to attempt to play through the game on just one credit before having to restart the demo. The PS3 version will have unlimited credits essentially unlocking the full game for free. A full purchase of Game Pack 1 will include Black Tiger, Avengers, and 1943: The Battle of Midway with special access to DIP switch settings such as number of lives and difficulty.

Some games will have additional features such as 2-player online play, leaderboards, a training mode allowing unlimited lives, and the ability to play the Japanese or international versions. Another thing that separates the PS3 and XBLA versions is the ability to record gameplay video on PS3 and upload to YouTube, or capture screenshots on Xbox 360 and upload to Facebook.
