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

Locust_Star's Avatar + Posted by Locust_Star on Mar 04, 2009 // PlayStation Home Community Manager

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!

When are games going to support Home? i.e.: Game Launching / Lobbies / Party systems, etch ala Warhawk?

I have no other reason to want to use the service as of now.

    Both of these games support Home, actually. SFIV has unlockable content in Home, and the RE5 space supports game launching.

    The clothes are unlockable by performing certain actions in the game. The character costumes are for purchase in the Threads store in the Mall.

Can’t wait, I’m definitely bringing my Saikyo shirt.

+ bball230 on March 4th, 2009 at 2:11 pm said:

…dont care about these rooms with no features. Home needs features that it was supposed to have to begin with:

trophy room
Streaming content
Party system
loading spaces in background
ETC ETC ETC…

i used to back up home when people were saying it was an epic fail up until now…
You guys said more stuff would come a months after launch.. and there still isnt really anything.. so.. idk anymore..

RE5 area = awesome to hear
Really huge RE fan, but I can’t say I’ll use Home any more often XDDD
Either way, it’s cool.

Don’t give a damn about the RE5 stuff – that game is crap.

Everyone wants to know when the Killzone 2 space is showing up.

Where’s the Little Big Planet space? LBP is virtually absent from Home. A huge game for the PS3 and there’s 3rd party spaces going up.
I consider LBP to kinda parallel Home. Killzone costumes, Streetfighter Costumes, and a strong community. Except Home is more of a social playground LBP is more of a sharing playpen.
Home has incredible potential. I wish we had a create-a_character that rivals wrestling games’ Create-a-wrestler.
Things I can’t wait for Home to get done:
TVs, Pictures, furniture, etc… there’s no point in inviting anyone to my place. I have nothing to share.
I feel very restrained by my avatar. I wanna jump and climb.
Mini-games could be made outta anything. Dancing for instance, easily a rythm based game.
So much more could be implemented. I wouldn’t mind seeing the largest room be a city block where you can skateboard, ride bike, play basketball.
Implement more mini games, mini golf!!!
Sorry, I get going I can’t stop.

+ Squamden on March 4th, 2009 at 2:48 pm said:

I honestly think that Home is thus far Sony’s biggest mistake. As a social networking service, it’s pretty bad, as you cannot easily find friends and there’s a ton of creepy people wandering around. As a companion to the core gaming experience, it has virtually no use. It takes forever to get up and running, the party system is virtually nonexistant, and only Warhawk can be launched directly from the service. Live chats are cool, game spaces are ok (I’d rather play the game), but I still don’t really see a reason to use this service. I would love to have one soon.

    + CydoniaX on March 5th, 2009 at 1:58 pm said:

    It actually is easy to find your friends if you they are on your buddy list. Just send them an invite so they\’ll come to you, or select Go To from your Menu Pad Friends List to be teleported directly to them!

    What would you like to see in Home to make it a better social gaming experience?

+ ADR143 on March 4th, 2009 at 2:56 pm said:

nice! good to see HOME is doing something nice


34

+ VenomXv on March 4th, 2009 at 2:59 pm said:

Best thing in Home! I can’t wait to see what Sony adds to Home later on.

I can’t see it as a mistake if it generated over a million dollars of goods from Home.

John’s gonna be there? I just started caring. I’ll be there.

this might make me go out and buy the game now lol

+ Carnivius_Prime on March 4th, 2009 at 3:08 pm said:

Cool. I’d like the Street Fighter stuff for sure. I don’t even like chatting online much but I quite like heading into Home and chatting to my online/real-life buddies in there sometimes. Certainly more interesting than MSN anyways.

Anyone knows how i get into the Gamer’s lounge?

    You can access the Gamer\’s Lounge through the Menu Pad. Select the Locations tab > World Map> PlayStation Home chip > Gamer\’s Lounge. Voila!

+ ThreeLeggedFreak on March 4th, 2009 at 3:20 pm said:

Cool, more Home Space the better, and again Resident Evil 5 better have some AMBIENT music, the best Home spaces ALL have AMBIENT MUSIC/SOUND.

I hope there’s Game Launching with RE5 too.

    + CydoniaX on March 5th, 2009 at 5:45 pm said:

    We\’re working on this, bob52. The main issue now is that it would take forever to download, so we need to focus on getting streaming video working in Home.
