Street Fighter and Resident Evil Invade PlayStation Home on PS3

50°
291w ago - Capcom plans on supporting PlayStation Home on the PS3 in a big way. [Register or Login to view links] has revealed brand new Home content based on Capcom's upcoming games, Street Fighter IV and Resident Evil 5.

To quote: 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.
