Hey Home Community,
As mentioned in Locust_Star's PlayStation Blog post, from Friday, July 29th until the final battle on Sunday, July 31st we will be streaming the event live from the fabulous Rio Resort in Las Vegas to the PlayStation Home Theater. Watch as competitors from around the globe duke it out across five competitions (Marvel vs Capcom 3, Tekken 6, Mortal Kombat, BlazBlue: Continuum Shift II, and Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition). Players include 2009 and 2010 Street Fighter champion Daigo Umehara who will attempt an unprecedented "3-peat" victory. Along the way to his goal he'll face one of the strongest fields of competitors ever assembled, including US legend Justin Wong, Korean wizard Poongko, French phenomenon Kayane, and UK champ Ryan Hart.
The purpose of this event is twofold: First, bring the world’s top fighting game competition directly to your PlayStation 3. Secondly, we have some new video streaming technology to test in the PlayStation Home Theater, and what better opportunity than this? Join us for this special event, and help us test this new video streaming technology by posting about your experience here in this thread. So please leave your thoughts here, and try to be specific with any details.
By the way, each day of the event, attendees will receive an exclusive EVO virtual item reward – from clothing items to a companion. So join daily to share in the fun, help us continue to test Home's live streaming technology and share your experience with us.
I can't wait to check this out.
