The PlayStation Recap — EVO 2011 Edition

21 12

This weekend, I’m on site at the “World Series of Fighting Games,” the EVO Championship Series, located in fabulous (chaotic, disorienting) Las Vegas! Top fighting game champions from around the world have gathered to duke it out in Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition, Tekken 6, Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Mortal Kombat, plus a host of other niche fighting games, culminating in a nail-biting series of finals Sunday night. Luckily, PlayStation Home users can watch the battles live for free. Not a bad way to spend the weekend!

In addition to the competition, Capcom and Namco Bandai are showing off upcoming fighters such as Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Street Fighter X Tekken, and Tekken Tag Tournament 2 to the throngs of hungry fighting-game fans. I’m hoping to score some interviews with Street Fighter producer Yoshinori Ono and Tekken creator Katsuhiro Harada, among others. Keep your eyes peeled for the results this week on the PlayStation.Blog!

    Oh, and speaking of watching, One of my biggest wishes finally came true on Thursday; “90210” FINALLY CAME TO THE PS STORE!!!!!! You finally listened to me! Just goes to show you that sometimes beggers CAN be choosers. ;-D

    Sid, I can only hope you answer this, B/C Grace Chen will probably never answer this question, but do you happen to know if seasons 1 & 2 of “90210” are coming to the PS Store any time soon? Because I only started to watch the show regularly somewhere in the middle of last season, and I want to catch up. Can you please answer my question?
