Concert in PlayStation Home
Network are reporting that virtual representations of
Macross Frontier characters Sheryl Nome and Ranka Lee
are set to perform free live concerts in the Japanese
version of PlayStation Home, starting on Saturday
23rd July. There will be four gigs in total with the
first at 11am UK time on the 23rd, and the rest at the same
time on the 24th, 29th and 30th. The gigs will also be
repeated at 4am and 11am each day.
The Japanese version of
PlayStation Home is available to UK PlayStation 3
users who have set up a Japanese account on their system.
There are generally no restrictions beyond the language
barrier of using the Japanese PlayStation Home, and
the social hub is currently doing quite a big Macross
Frontier tie-in with episodes of the anime streaming for
free within its cinema area (in Japanese only), themed
costumes, a downloadable arena area where the gig is taking
place and even a virtual statue of the transformable VF-25
aircraft in the Home plaza.
