Street Fighter x Tekken Hits PlayStation Home

Locust_Star's Avatar + Posted by Locust_Star on Feb 13, 2012 // PlayStation Home Community Manager

We’ve got a huge week ahead of us here at PlayStation Home – from exclusive community events for the soon-to-be-released PlayStation Vita and, of course, the impending Valentine’s Day celebration, to brand new items and special offers where you can unlock bonus content in the hotly-anticipated Street Fighter x Tekken. So without further ado, here are the top 10 things to check out in PlayStation Home this week.

1. Street Fighter x Tekken

Hadouken! Week one of the Street Fighter x Tekken Total Game Integration event kicks off this Wednesday, February 15th. Head to the Hub to pre-order Street Fighter x Tekken from PlayStation Home and receive the Boost Gem Trial Pack 1 bundle when it ships. This gem pack increases your Vitality, Defense and Cross Gauge meter build-up speed. Learn more about these boosters HERE.

SFxTK 1

More Street Fighter x Tekken content will be coming your way next week. For the first time in Home history, you’ll be able to brawl using your avatars! Complete all 10 SFxTK challenges in Home to unlock Ryu and Kazuya costumes, which will allow you to throw fireballs and perform custom jump kick attacks!

2. Valentine’s Day Love Fest

Pier Park is filled with warm and fuzzy feelings this week, as PlayStation Home fanatics hit the boardwalk in preparation for Tuesday night’s Valentine’s Day Love Fest. Start at the Activity Board to take the Valentine’s Day Prep quest and then head down to Pier Park to snap pics with your sweetie and take part in Tuesday night’s special event, where you can unlock a limited edition reward.

3. The Tester 3 – Episode 2

The next episode of the Tester 3 will be airing in the PlayStation Home Theater this Wednesday. Take the new Tester 3 quest and join my main man Ninjanomyx, Home alumnus Asuukaa, the one-and-only Akilleezmight, and the rest of cast as they compete for a Production Associate gig at our own Santa Monica Studios. You’ll even unlock a special Tester 3 reward for completing the quest!

4. The War Room

nDreams launches their first clubhouse this week in PlayStation Home – and it’s packed with special features. Check out this trailer and then pick up your own War Room from the Estates store in the PlayStation Home Mall when it releases this Wednesday.

5. Tembo

Lockwood Publishing’s zoologists bring you Tembo – a baby elephant companion that has a few tricks up his trunk. Make room in your home (and your heart) for this adorable little guy – available from the Lockwood Publishing store this Wednesday.

6. New Costumes, Companions, and Collectibles

Some of the most stylish wears we’ve ever published are hitting the shelves of the PlayStation Home Mall this Wednesday. The “Secret Agent” line of costumes comes with custom animations befitting the smoothest of spies whereas the tattoo and corset bundles are perfect V-Day attire. Magnus shows you the goods in this week’s Virtual Item Showcase – check it out!

7. Replay with Doc Interviews David Jaffe (2/2)

Doc returns with his part 2 of the David Jaffe interview in the latest episode of Replay with Doc, airing this Wednesday in the PlayStation Home Community Theater. Also playing this week in the Community Theater: PSX Extreme looks at the PlayStation Vita (and rewards their audience with a special virtual item reward) and HomeCast Rewind covers the latest and greatest in Home!

8. PlayStation Vita Webcast

Today at 3:00pm PT (6:00pm ET) we’ll be airing a live PlayStation Vita webcast via UStream. Check out this exciting product demo by going to the LOOT Screen in the PlayStation Home Theater or watching the LOOT EOD screens in the Hollywood Hills House, the LOOT Space Station, or the LOOT Yacht!

9. Axe Anarchy

Head to the Axe Newsstand in the Hub and read the most recent chapter of AXE’s first Graphic Novel. Follow the Anarchy Girls’ story as they unlock attraction between guys and girls.

10. New Personal Space Previews

This isn’t actually in Home…yet. But check out these screenshots of the following personal spaces – The French Chateau, Mount Olympus, and the Hidden Oak Retreat, releasing late February/early March. Then let us know what you think in the Comments section and on the Home forums.

Fantastic update!!!! The SF x Tekken is amazing! I’ve always wanted a fighting game in Home where we can play as ourselves!

Will there be more SF x Tekken outfits in the future, like NIna Williams?

French Chateau is an instant buy for me, don’t even need a tour lol.

    The Mount Olympus space is amazing. It is truly epic. The Home Community Volunteers are currently offering tours, if you’re interested in seeing a preview. Here’s a link for more info: http://community.us.playstation.com/message/37410700

    The Valentine’s Day event consists of 2 quests—one is a “preparation” quest that must be completed prior to the party, and the other one is the event itself. I recommend checking the Activity Board today to complete the simple Preparation quest, then showing up tomorrow afternoon/evening for the Love Fest. Bring a valentine or a friend, and get ready for some fun!

    Come out any time tomorrow. But be sure to START at the Activity Board and complete the V-Day quests if you want to get the reward…

    I’m trying to figure out who I am backing to win The Tester. Last year, I was Team Cheska, but then Gaymer got mad at me when he found out. LOL!

    I’d have to say I am backing Home veteran Asuukaa since I’ve known her for year. She is a former Home Community Volunteer, and she’s one helluva’ legitimate gamer. She has more Platinum trophies than the next 10 average gamers put together. But of course, I’m biased…

    I got to meet Egoraptor at The Tester premier party in Santa Monica last week. For the record, he’s even cooler in person, so I have to give credit where it’s due. Will he win? I have no idea. Tune in each week to find out!

    The French Chateau is one space only to start. Depending on how well it is received, we may end up offering expansions, but for now the plan is for this to be a single, standalone space.

    + GlassWalls on February 13th, 2012 at 4:29 pm said:

    Though the French Chateau looks epic, it’s not as large as the Home Mansion. It will be released in a single space, though if it’s popular enough, it might be expanded upon.

Can you please tell me why everytime i download every place i visit , turn my PS3 off for 5 minutes, i login into Home and it asks me to download everything again, this happens every single time, every single day, why is this happening ? do i need to fix a setting, what ?
we need REAL Emotioncons and not this : ) …………………..Hudson needs to be updated for beginners, its hard to compete against people that have been racing for years , even people that have every single thing you could possibly get , keep competting , not giving a chance for beginners, either that or give us more SERVERS .

    + GlassWalls on February 13th, 2012 at 5:17 pm said:

    Every time you log into Home, there’s a load time to collect room data (who’s in there, what clothing are they wearing, and a tad of pre-loading of other stuff like videos, posters and mini-games). It’s relatively minimal nowadays, as we’ve been continually working on improving load times.

    Hudson has awesome dolphy racers, but you can learn from them while you train your dolphin to get it as sleek, fast and agile as anyone else’s. Join the community during the races and hit the “pros” up for tips and techniques. That’s a part of the Home experience. There is a near-infinite number of “servers” (we call them instances), so just step yo’ game up and have fun!

    As for emoticons, have you visited the stores? There are quite a few of them. Lockwood makes some really fun ones that I highly recommend.

    Here are some facts:
    1) You play with your own Home avatar. WOOT!
    2) It’s turn-based intense brawl action with lots of combos available.
    3) Lots rewards! Details coming in next week’s blog for week 2 of SFxTK.

And its a great update ive been wanting to grab my hands on the french and Mt. Olympus personal spaces good Job Locus_Star and GlassWalls you make home a wonderful place to be!! :)

    Confirmed—yes, there are lots of rewards from the game including full character costumes. Since you play with your avatar, once you unlock these costume outfits, you can play with them in the game if you want to.

The upcoming update looks great. I just wish that we could get full avatar costumes that were more suitable for people of color. The 1s coming this week look awesome but no offence i won’t buy them b/c well…they don’t reflect me. There are plenty of caucasian full avatar costumes out there but maybe just maybe its time to represent more then just a portion of the Home community.

+ Northstar77 on February 13th, 2012 at 7:38 pm said:

I wish I could get some of the $ I invested in Home back through a sell back of merchandise or transfer to another person. I really got turned off by such small improvements over such a long time frame. I would have liked to seen more overall PlayStation integration . My Mansion being 4 or 5 separate spaces rather than the 1 large connected space really turned me off.

I have not logged into Home for a long time after trying the early access to the “new” hub. Is there anything really groundbreaking since then that bridges the gap of Home to the core PlayStation experience? Also any way in hell we can get home on Vita? or remote play?

Lastly has the lag improved at all?

Nice update, but to me home is still not all it can be.. It would appeal to a much broader audience if it had a few of the following things:

- fluent integration with the ps3 (reduced load times/downloads) would have been nice to boot straight to home instead of XMB (as an option)
- Personal trophy room that you can customize and share with friends.
- Trophies unlock game specific items (for free)
- Ability to create your own personal space (such as a sims type of builder)
- Groups that have video/chat/voice options and allow for xross game play (I know not possible on PS3 but still)
