Home To Receive SFIV, RE5 Updates

We're willing to bet that for every major software release on the PlayStation 3, there will be some reflection of that event in PlayStation Home. According to Andriasang.com, Sony is gearing up to celebrate the impending launches of Street Fighter IV and Resident Evil 5 by releasing all sorts of new game-themed goodies for Home.

First of all, both of the aforementioned blockbusters will support the option within Home to meet with friends and immediately kick off matches and online co-op play. The only difference is that this functionality will be available at the time of the RE5 launch, but won't show up for SFIV until a future update drops (presumably not long after the February 17 release date). In addition, the new items and lounges are headed our way as well: RE5 will get its own lounge; it will be based on Kijuju, of course. Special items will show up in the stores for both games, as Capcom is preparing a set of costumes that let you dress your avatar up as a popular fighter from the long-running series. As you can see in this picture here, the guys can run around as Ryu or Ken, and the girls can slide into a Chun-Li costume...or maybe the guys will wear the Chun-Li costume? It's the Internet, so who knows what people will do?

Anyway, this hasn't been officially confirmed for the North American version of PlayStation Home, but that announcement will probably show up soon. If a big game release is on the horizon, you can expect to see new additions to Home, and we certainly aren't going to complain. For more pictures, head on over to Andriasang; you can see more SFIV stuff and the RE5 lounge.

Ok so if it hasn't been announced for NA HOME who's getting it? Europe?

I just mean that none of this is really official for any region until we see a press release.

For NA, the best place to check is the PlayStation blog. We'll be looking over there for the announcement.

Looks like people get their wish, meet up, have it out and then settle it in a battle. If I ever get SFIV I pwn all with Blanka.

Bring it! I've got a hot, pigtailed British girl over here who says you're going down! =D

Btw, this Home update looks sweet... might get me to actually log in finally.

Your "big green Rolling Attack," right? That's the only thing I could imagine you would end that sentence with... You certainly couldn't be hinting at defiling my beloved Cammy...

Kinda neat...sorta...I guess I'm just expecting more from Home and maybe someday it will happen.

Anyone ever seen the movie "Gotcha"? Came out in the mid 80s. About college kids playing an on campus game of assassination with paintball guns. Pick a name and that your target.

I'm no programmer and it may be impossible, but wouldn't that be a cool scenerio with Home. Join a group, get assigned a name and you have to hunt the entirety of Home to find that person. I know, I know, how do you differentiate between regular peeps and players? Well, isn't collision detection basically turned off so people can't block doors and such? Can't it be made that players get tagged with some sort of friendly fire. Other games do it with NPCs.

I don't know. I'm babbling now. I just want more from Home. It has the potential and I'm impatient and want more than costumes and lounges.

Would be cool but home avatars are the way they are so the servers dont lag/crash when someone with a high res/texture 10 foot alien/robot decides to log in. I'm sure true variety will arrive at some stage though.

true, a titan skin would couse a lag and a half

lol

but i don't see any problem in having say a sub zero costume, helghast soldier outfit, or..... one that i would automatically get because its related to my screen name..... CAPTAIN QWARK!!!!!

just a suggestion

Am I the only one who made my Home dude look like me as much as I possibly could? At any rate I'd like to slap on a Sephiroth costume... what? Not everything is ninja with me.

No, I tried to make my home avatar look like me, but it ended up not really resembling me at all.

No KZ2 stuff? What a letdown...

...to think, I'm so excited for killzone 2 that I would buy every type of item in home (if they spiced it up with a killzone theme).
