You'll be able to watch fighting game tournament Evo 2011 in PlayStation 3 virtual world PlayStation Home, Sony has announced.

The largest fighting game competition in the world begins on Friday and runs to the end of the weekend.

It takes place at the Rio Resort in Las Vegas, and will be streamed on the official Evo website, but will also be beamed into the PlayStation Home Theatre, as revealed by the US PlayStation Blog.

Players will duke it out on Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Tekken 6, Mortal Kombat, BlazBlue: Continuum Shift II and Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition.

Expect Street Fighter world champion Daigo Umehara to play an important role alongside US champion Justin Wong.

Korea's Poongko and UK champion Ryan Hart will also appear.

Watch Evo in Home on Friday and you'll get a limited edition Evo t-shirt for your avatar. Watch on Saturday and you'll get a special fighting stick companion item. And watch on Sunday and you'll nab a replica of the Evo trophy for your Home personal space.
