EVO Fighting Game Tournament Finals streaming on PlayStation Home

By Joseph Christ on July 26th, 2011 (10 comments)

The EVO Fighting Game Tournament Finals are taking place this weekend, and since I'm sure many of you aren't able to make it out to Las Vegas, PlayStation has done you a solid. Sony will be streaming the entire three days of the tournament in the PlayStation Home Theater on PlayStation Home.

Yes, this means you'll actually have to use PlayStation Home to see them.  Maybe this is their nefarious way to get people to re-install it, but it may just work for the curious.


Curious? Then check out the schedule below.

Friday, July 29th

    • 8:00 AM – 6:00 PM Super Street Fighter IV Tournament, Early Rounds
    • 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM Super Street Fighter IV Tournament, Quarterfinals
    • 8:00 PM – 11:00 PM Super Street Fighter IV Tournament, Semi-Finals (top 32 players)


Saturday, July 30th

    • 8:00 AM – 6:00 PM Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Tournament, Early Rounds
    • 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Tournament, Quarterfinals
    • 8:00 PM – 11:00 PM Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Tournament, Semi-Finals (top 32 players)


Sunday, July 31th

9:00 AM – 9:00 PM The top 8 in each tournament square off for the 2011 championships. In order:

    • BlazBlue Continuum Shift 2 Tournament Finals
    • Tekken 6 Tournament Finals
    • Mortal Kombat 9 Tournament Finals
    • Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Tournament Finals
    • Super Street Fighter IV Tournament Finals
But what this really means is that if you're one of the one's to sit and watch this, then you have no right to complain about jocks sitting down and watching Sunday Football. Or rather, jocks watching Sunday Football have no reason to feel superior to gamers. Seem's we're all just wearing different uniforms.

    Poor Brad, how can he watch Devil Jim have a better Julia than him. How times have changed.

      Also, this isn't that surprising to most of the people that know Evo. Pretty much, Sony has been a long time sponsor or Evo, providing all the consoles, making PS3 always the preferred console for tournament play despite some games having better ports than others. Good to see more publication for the scene though.

    It's weird that I get into fighting games coincidentally as things like this happen.

      Part of the reason Sony is doing this is because the fighting game scene has boomed in recent years, it's only logical that as more people are brought into the fighting game scene, companies start supporting it more. Evo's really getting a lot of support these days, Namco recently announced that they're sending the development teams of TTT2 and Soul 5 there as well.

    I will definitely check this out and probably watch a ton of it. Ever since Brad introduced me to Gootecks/Mike Ross I am really into watching competitive fighting games now.

    Got tired of the tournament fighting game community ages ago. 99% of them are pricks. It's no longer about the game, it's about serious business and money. Bleh,
