Capcom-Unity Card… Unity? More Like Uni-Fees

DSC04053The co-branded Visa debit card is the first of its kind in North America. The cards will feature art from Street Fighter IV, Resident Evil 5 and Bionic Commando. The pre-paid cards will also let gamers earn points on, cash back from online or retail purchases and earn "accelerated rewards" through the online Capcom rewards mall. For every dollar deposited on the card they will earn five Capcom Unity points which can be used for a number of things on the site, including auctions and raffles. Unity card holders will also be able to "jump the line" at Capcom events or gatherings, gain access to Beta tests and other things like "being written into a Capcom game or comic book or possibly even being an extra in a Capcom movie.
