99w ago - Capcom Community Senior Manager Seth Killian has announced today alongside a video that EVO 2011 starts tomorrow, which will also be streaming in PlayStation Home.
To quote: EVO is the World Series of Fighting Games, and it's this weekend, July 29th through the 31st, in Las Vegas.
EVO has been running for over a decade, and has grown from a small gathering of friends into the biggest fighting-game event on the planet, with thousands of competitors and fans attending from dozens of countries (46 countries are represented this year!).
The best of the best come not only to win prizes, but to claim a place in fighting game history, to earn a name, and to test themselves at the highest levels.
For fighting game fans like me, it is so exciting that my body literally starts tensing this far in advance because of what I know is to come. Wonder how little kids feel when they are on their way to Disneyland? For fighting game lovers, this is that feeling.
If you've always wondered why people still talk about arcades, EVO is as close as you'll come to seeing it for yourself. It's this big space, filled with people who are -- at the same time -- your friends and your enemies. You can feel the thrill, excitement, and anxiety of competition...
