Hatsune Miku is without a doubt, an icon that has stolen the hearts of many fans around the world. While she may be a fictional idol donning her trademark teal pigtails, she has spawned various ‘live’ concert appearances, conventions centred around her and her Vocaloid friends and a slew of fan composed songs and projects. What is next for this Japanese pop culture icon?
A Playstation 4 console brandished with her own image and the MIKU EXPO logo awaits fans in China! Priced at 2,899 Yuan Rembini (SGD628), the sleek PS4 will feature a greyscale image of Hatsune Miku against a white backdrop as seen above.
The special edition PlayStation4 is part of a special collaboration between Miku’s developer, Crypton Future Media and Good Smile Company and the original manufacturer of the PlayStation itself: Sony Computer Entertainment. Fans wanting to grab this special PlayStation 4 will have to act fast for only 100 of these will be produced and sold.
Aside from bragging rights, the lucky 100 who are able to snag the consoles up will be entitled to priority application for tickets to MIKU EXPO, which will take place at Shanghai’s E-SPORTS ARENA from 27-28 June 2015. Those owning the consoles can also get tickets for the events at discounted prices.
