The final round of voting on Capcom's limited edition Rockman Ultrabook brings in a rather underwhelming finish. This time, users are given the chance to vote on which wallpaper pack will come with the PC: an all boss collection, a heroine collection, or a package art collection. Though really, these are just wallpapers. Why can't it come with all of them? The results of the previous two polls are still unknown. The Ultrabook will go on pre-order March 29th, though, so all details ought to be known by then. Gotta wonder what this thing's gonna cost...
Last week we introduced you to the latest merchandise in the works for Rockman in Japan: the Rockman themed Ultrabook notebook PC. Furthermore, fans are being given the opportunity to vote on which special design elements the computer will feature. Last week it was the laptop's back design.
Although the results of that poll have not been revealed, the next poll is now running. This one asks what special add-on you'd like to see with the laptop. The first is a desktop mat featuring the box artwork from the ten classic Rockman games. Next is a set of stickers meant to go on the keyboard, featuring different sprites. Last is a cover for the laptop back which can be detached and used as a mouse pad. Like before, there's also the option to submit a feature of your own choosing. Certainly a Mega Buster USB would be nice...
Personally speaking, I suppose I like the keyboard stickers best, although I can imagine they'd also look a bit garish and start coming off in time.
Need some mass storage to go with your soon to be released Mega Man Ultrabook? Well, Capcom has you covered with the new Mega Man USB drive. For $19.95 you'll get all of the following:
- 8GB Mega Buster USB stick
- Mega Man #1~4 (Digital Comic Book)
- Mega Man Tribute Art Book (Digital)
- Mega Man X Complete Works (Digital)
- Street Fighter X Mega Man soundtrack (via A_Rival)
- SFxMM Wallpapers (Originally posted on Unity)
- Quick link to SFxMM game (in case you somehow don't have it)
Head on over to Capcom Unity for ordering information!
We've had a lot of really interesting Rockman merchandise coming from Japan in the past few years. Figures, soundtracks, mugs, cushions, keychains, clothing, and slightly provocative puzzles to name a few. And now it seems Rockman's next ambition is to become... a computer.
Ucchy-san of Rockman Unity has announced the Rockman Ultrabook Product Project, which is asking for user input in creating a Rockman themed Ultrabook. Users may vote on the polls once per day. Right now there is a poll concerning what kind of design will be featured on the Ultrabook's case, including an option for your own suggestion. Simply select the design you want, select your age range and gender, and submit. Two more polls will be opened in the following weeks.
When the final specifications are set, the Rockman Ultrabook will go on preorder March 29th. Preorders will end in May, and the notebooks will ship in July. The Ultrabook promises a third generation CPU that reduces energy consumption, a 14.1" non-glare LCD monitor, a solid-state drive for storage, and a 19mm thin form that weighs 1.67kg. Other specs and the price point are currently unknown.
Guessing it's really unlikely these are going to make their way out of Japan. I wouldn't worry much, though. Japanese keyboards are kind of weird.
