Hatsune Miku: VR Future Live launching October for PS VR

Hatsune Miku isn’t content with one upcoming game, no, she wants another, and Sega is giving in to the digital star with the virtual-reality treatment this October. Fans of the digital singer will be able to be in the front row with PS VR in Hatsune Miku: VR Future Live. Diva X will be receiving a VR patch as well, but VR Future Live is a standalone app that is being built from the ground up for the headset. Players will use their controller as a glowstick to keep time with the songs along with the rest of the crowd. The more in-time the player is with the beat, the more Miku gets amped to perform a one-on-one encore. No screenshots or a trailer, unfortunately, but Gamescom attendees can see a demo at the PlayStation booth in Hall 7.1
