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.

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!

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.

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!

Honestly, I cannot wait to expand my Street Fighter X Tekken collection. To date, I have all but the Street Fighter in-game items and Abel’s gi top.

Which leads me to a concern I have: How come that item is no longer available? I know it has been nearly a year since it has glitched up, but why remove it opposed to fixing it?

Also…

@sawh_10: I am just curious on this. I truly am. Have you considered the idea that they pushed it back because there might have been a technical issue or two that they needs to be fixed? I mean, I do not appreciate being told this and find out that the game is delayed either. But, at the same time, I do not want to go through the same ordeal that we had to face with Dead Island. So I think instead of calling them liars, the best thing to do is just ask them why… And then call them liars when they go with you to a Denny’s at night with you, get a ticket for swerving a bit due to texting and driving, but claim that it only happened because you were distracting them. ;p

@KATO-LEE: I cannot disagree with you any more than I do right now on the tees. Because quite honestly, I think they are great in terms of MARVEL testing out the waters on Home. Because honestly, if these tees sell well enough, then we may see more tees… Prop clothing, like Hulk fists and Thor’s hammer… Housing items… And maybe even see costumes. (Myself, I wish Hasbro would follow suit with G1 Transformers and classic G.I. Joe costumes as well.)

Would the SF x Tekken Boost Gem Trial Pack 1 be in addition to the Cross Arts Gem pack that’s available for pre-ordering from amazon normally? If so, would both DLC codes be provided by amazon then?
