This Week in PlayStation Home: Street Fighter IV Live Q&A, Resident Evil 5 Space Launching

126 5

What’s up Home-boys and Home-girls?

We have some über-cool events scheduled for this week that we want to hip you all to. First, we are holding a live Q&A session with John Diamonon and Seth Killian from Capcom today, March 4th. This chat will focus on all things related to Street Fighter IV and will give a few lucky attendees the chance to win a more intimate follow-up Q&A (complete with an SFIV tips and tricks tutorial) in a private clubhouse at a later date.

HOME Street Fighter

To participate in the general Q&A, just bring your bad self over to the Gamer’s Lounge today between the hours of 7:00 – 9:00pm PST (10:00 – 11:00pm EST) – and don’t be afraid to show up dressed as your favorite SFIV character! To start, John and Seth will be tackling the most popular questions culled from the official PlayStation Home forums (under the usernames “HIERO9D3” and “clothhand”), but will hold a brief open chat afterwards. These two gents will be “instance-jumping” throughout the event, so if you’re in the Gamer’s Lounge and you don’t see them, cool out and sit tight! They’ll be making the rounds.

To qualify for the private chat, make sure you attend the general Q&A decked out in the Dan Saikyo shirt (unlockable in Home). Attendees sporting this hot reward will be entered into a drawing and then chosen at random to participate. If you make the list, we’ll send you details via private message in your XrossMediaBar regarding the time and date of the follow-up session.

In other news: We’re launching the Resident Evil 5 game space tomorrow, March 5th. So dress yourself up in that free Resident Evil gear available in the Mall, check out the new space, and learn more about the game before it launches later this month. We’ll be looking out for you!

  • Lets just have SONY screw SOCOM AGAIN….

  • RurouniSaiya-jin

    Excellent news. I’ll probably skip the SF IV Q/A since I don’t really have any questions but if you have one for RE5 at a later date, I’ll be sure to be there!

    But I will go check out the RE5 Home space. Also, why was I not informed that there’s free RE5 loot at the mall? :P

  • Only if Home was actually useful!

  • Yo Locust, where are the socom/warhawk coupons for the store. For those people that showed up first in the new gamers lounge on it’s release day? i WAS THERE FROM IT’S LAUNCH UNTIL THE Q AND A LATER THAT DAY. SORRY MY CPS LCK KEEPS STICKING.

    • Warhawk and SOCOM vouchers were not for participants in the Gamer\’s Lounge launch day event, they were for the Valentine\’s Day \”I Love Ninjas\” Event. We’ve concluded the fulfillment process for the Ninjas event. However, we’re not above the off-mistake. PM me on the forums with the username associated with your avatar at the time of the contest. We have a comprehensive, 100% accurate list of all the winners, and trackings on all the vouchers.

  • Thanks for the heads up.

  • The space is gonna be awesome. But what about the costume for Chris? And if theres even one for Sheva?

  • so excited for the new space, im quite hard.

  • Glad to see more content coming out at a better pace. Keep up the good work guys.

  • Pff.. haha they have great posture too!

  • Hi Locust_Star! You guys have really been busy! It’s been a while since I checked out Home, so I’ll definitely try to pop in tomorrow.

    • This is just the tip of the iceberg. You\’ll definitely be needing to come in Home more often. We have lots of cool stuff coming in the very near future.

  • Resident Evil 5 space? Looks like its time to go back home.

  • Where did you get those wooden chairs that Ryu and Ken are sitting in?

  • What do the resident evil outfits look like that are coming out tomorrow.

  • Everyone really needs to shut up and stop b******* about Home, their doing the best they can with how fast their tryin to get everything done. If you dont like Home, then dont use it and stop reading blogs on it. No one wants to hear your complaining.

    Good work Sony.

  • Is the Chris Redfield costume going to be available tomorrow as well?

  • Hi Locust_Star,

    This weekly article is pretty cool… thanks for everything you and CydoniaX do to please us Die-Hard PS3 gamers!!! When is the Home EA Sports game space coming?

  • I been here at the gamer lounge with the dan shirt. Still nothing, running late?

  • its now 9:05 est.

  • Keep up the good work Locus

  • Cant wait for More Rooms to Open

    Like Resistance 2, Socom Confrontion, Motor Storm Pacific Rift

    Would be Cool to See More Gaming Rooms more Often.

    Reason being is because the people that like the game.. will find people that have the game which Equals Happier Gamers :D

    Have a good night Locust_Star

    Ricky,

  • I just bought all the street fighter iv outfits…….lol

    Any idea when the SFIV space gonna launch?

  • lol, that’s pretty cool… but until I see Home as being more than a place to watch the most desperate of men enveloping the most unfortunate of girls, then I’ll just stick to playing the games.

  • ThreeLeggedFreak

    What do you mean by RE5 Space supports Game Launching? Do I have to be on RE5 Space to start a Game Launching on it? That would suck….

    When is the SFIV Home Space coming out?

  • I quote “On February 12th, sweet ninja outfits will be available for purchase at the Mall to dress your PlayStation Home avatar up in. Yeah, ninja outfits! And to celebrate their arrival, we’re holding a contest:

    On February 13th, we’ll be holding an event called “I Love Ninjas.” The first instance of the brand-new community-named Home hang-out space, the Gamer’s Lounge, to be completely filled with people in ninja costumes (or a reasonable facsimile using all-black clothing items in your inventory) that we see will win vouchers for SOCOM and Warhawk to celebrate the upcoming spaces.”

    From this link:https://blog.playstation.com/2009/02/10/i-love-ninjas-in-playstation-home/

    I was all in First thing in the day and dressed in all black as per the contest rules and talked to Cyd about a way to bring public chat back to Home, in the “New Gamer’s Lounge”.

    I would not continually ask about it if I didn’t know what I was talking about or was able to back it up with real proof.

  • oh and my name here IS my a vatar’s name, why would it differ?

  • Iam on home, where are you guys?

  • LivingDisaster07

    Were all waiting in the gamer’s Lounge for the street fighter IV conference and so far neither of the developers have shown up. Im in Chicago and it is 9:30 pm right now, I dont know weither we have missed it or if were waiting for them to come, please write back.

  • watchmen space please? atleast bring the free watchmen outfits stateside. thats the least you guys can do… amirite?

    OT: Res5 space sounds sick! i’ll be sure to drop by to check it out. I’ll leave my input on here tomorrow.

    thanks,
    Lh

  • i just meet seth but he was only around for a short period of time. why is that?

  • Hey what happend in the game lounge heard people woulden’t sit down so you left plz come back

  • nice job! you officially ditched a bunch of people in other servers…I only waited over 1 1/2 hours… oh well… next time…

  • you guys didnt show up. This is some bs. Dont waste our time like this again.

  • im just throwing this out there but…. what about being able to watch streaming movies with your friends through your home space?

  • DAMN nothing what a waste of time

  • Home is amazing and great! I have been in the closed beta and now in the open beta! Great job sony and looking to spread the love to all my friends!!! OOOOWWEEYYOPPP!

  • looks like home is getting better

  • So when are you guys going to send out those invites to the private chat?

  • RE5 space…can’t wait to jump in on HOME again.

  • man LOCUST WATS UP WIT THAT I WAITED TIL 5:00 – 10:00 pm PST __ nobody____ WATS the deal

  • Got on Home at 10:15 EST and waited til 11:15 EST and saw nobody, i guess i was 15 minutes late for whenever they showed up in my Home instance thing Game Lounge.

    I would have hoped someone asked when are they gonna fix Match Making cause it’s severely broken. There are multiple reasons why it’s broken but i’ll give just 1 for now.

    Ranked Match -> Custom Match
    Rounds (ANY)
    Time Limit (ANY)
    Search Priority (Same Skill)
    Language (ANY)
    My current BP = 636
    Results……..Cannot find anyone…

    And even if i keep trying i might find 1 person. Then if they happen to have 3 bars or more I have a 1/3 chance of actually joining the match which would be reason #2.

    Guess i gotta wait and see what was talked about.

  • This is awesome. You guys should support more game launching so more people get on HOME. And really guys, u guys had the trophy room up and running when phil harrison first showed it(HOME). How hard can it be to make it happen again.

  • Cool beans! I was in there! Didn’t ask any questions because the ones I had was already asked and answered! I love those Home screen shots! That’s the kind of shots we need to have available for everyone to take!

  • I hope the “lots of cool stuff” coming soon is the promised trophy room way back when Home was first announced!

  • I wonder what the RE 5 room will have.

  • Locust_Star: How NEAR is NEAR…LoL

  • If it can speed up the release of the trophy room, there does not need to be 3D representations of every single trophy out there. I think only the Platinum and maybe some of the Gold trophies need to be actual 3D trophies in home.

    Too many 3D trophies would be pointless since they would decrease the perceived value of the trophies in Home. The way I see it, each person’s trophy room should only be occupied by a few (but very ornate) trophies to commemorate a tough goal such as a platinum trophy.

    Perhaps the bronze and silver trophies could just be the individual trophy icons used in the XMB now, except framed as pictures on a wall or something to make them 3D.

  • even ryu and ken look bored sitting in home

  • anyone knows when SFIV will support game launching?

  • I think that PlayStation Home could “truly” evolve and become something great if you guys keep brining us weekly updates like this. Just like the store, update Home every week by bringing like new game spaces,new arcade machines, new mingames to play except for bowling and pool,and stuff like that. BTW, I am still waiting on those Sony Bravias. Hopefully we will be able to use them for something useful though and not just watch trailers on them.
