The Evolution Championship series took place this weekend in Vegas and brings together players from various fighting games. The game lineup this year included:

* Street Fighter 4 (PS3)
* Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo, HD Remix (PS3)
* Soul Calibur 4 (PS3)
* Marvel vs Capcom 2 (TBA)
* Street Fighter 3, Third Strike (PS2)
* Guilty Gear XX: Accent Core (PS2)
* EXHIBITION: Tatsunoko vs. Capcom Invitational Tournament (Nintendo Wii)
* EXHIBITION: SSF2T HD Remix, Regional 5on5 Team Tournament (PS3)

Tonight they broadcasted the Street Fighter 4 Finals which put Daigo up against Justin Wong. Justin definitely gave Daigo a run for his money by taking the tournament down to the very last match. While Daigo is a legend in Street Fighter tournaments, Justin put up an amazing fight. Definitely a great match to watch.

No updates on the EVO site where you can catch the replay. I will post when I find that online. You can learn more about EVO here.
