Sony’s working on new technology that brings virtual stages into the home, allowing the biggest music artists to perform for fans from their living room. Revealed as part of the Japanese giant’s CES 2021 digital event, popstar Madison Beer puts the tech to use with a performance of her latest single, titled Boysh*t. You can check the full show out through here, but it’ll also be available through the PS Store as a PlayStation VR experience in the near future. It can also be downloaded by 2D viewers.
Beer said: “The process of putting this performance together is like nothing I’ve ever done before. I love creating visuals, so it was really exciting for me to get involved in the process and make something special for my fans. We’re all disappointed we can’t go out and experience these songs on tour together, so creating a performance like this one feels like a true gift.”
Whilst we’re all having to stay at home, can be the future of gigs and musical performance be sourced from a PSVR headset? There’s only one way to find out. Share your thoughts on this in the comments below.
