From the Street Fighter x Tekken Total Game Integration Event (where you can unlock a ton of exclusive SFxTK virtual items and bonus content in the game) to the brand new Wardrobe Wars (where you can enter to win a trip to E3 2012), this week’s update is simply not to be missed. To get you started, here are the top 10 raddest, baddest, most awesomest things going on in PlayStation Home right now:

Complete all 10 challenges to unlock Ryu and Kazuya costumes, which will allow you to throw fireballs and perform custom jump kick attacks. And if you pre-order Street Fighter X Tekken from Home you’ll even receive the Boost Gem Trial Pack 1 bundle, which increases your Vitality, Defense and Cross Gauge meter build-up speed in Street Fighter X Tekken!
