Famitsu has revealed brand new Home content based on Capcom’s upcoming games, Street Fighter IV and Resident Evil 5. SFIV will receive a post-release patch that will allow players to meet in Home and then jump directly into a Street Fighter match.
In addition to game launching, Capcom will also sell costumes to wear in the Home world. This isn’t the first time Capcom has released Street Fighter costume DLC on a PlayStation system – LittleBigPlanet also features a handful of premium costumes for purchase.
Capcom is also developing a Resident Evil 5 game space, which looks remarkably like the game’s opening level. Here, players will be able to congregate and participate in various RE themed events. We’re not sure if those events will involve eating other Home users alive, but we hope so.
Didn’t know which Home thread to use, but I think this title attracts more attention. We can sorta launch SF 4 now on Home. I tried it yesterday but my Ps3 resetted. Haven’t dled the new DLC to see it works now, I’m at work atm.
This is not to take away from the Irc or AIM match ups, but this could be used as an alternative if done right.
I’ve tried this whole game launching feature in Home but no ones want to join my games. In fact i’ve never seen anyone host a SFIV game with Home. Im sure this will change when the SFIV space is released, but in the mean time in which space do u guys hang out?
IMO, PS Home is a great way to meet some SF players that don’t frequent or know about SRK.
Game Launching works good and you don’t need to add someone in order to play them.
PS Home could be an excellent place to have players meet up and chat in real time for casual/online tourney matches.
I’m very surprised more SRK peeps don’t use this service.
You can earn free clothing and items from SF4 (5 Different shirts), as well as other games such as Resident Evil 5 (action figures). You don’t have to buy anything at all, but the best stuff is usually earned or bought.
If you haven’t been on Home for awhile, there are various outfits for a number of characters to dress up your Avatar with. Currently they have costumes for : Ryu, Ken, Akuma, Guile, Blanka, Honda, Dhalsim, Chun Li, C Viper, Sakura, Gen, Dan and Zangief. Endless outfit possibilities!
If costumes aren’t enough, you could also purchase action figures for : Ryu, Ken, Guile, Dhalsim and Chun Li.
