Yesterday, September 03, 2009 was the official launch of the new PS3.
The campaign site, playface.jp will feature a collection of game expressions captured by the ‘Playface Caravan,’ a series of events touring Japan in which players can demo the new PS3 and have their emotions captured in 360º by a series of 20 cameras simultaneously. Participants’ playfaces are entered into the Playface Derby where individuals can earn points. At the end of the campaign, Japan’s top ranked playface with the most points will win PlayStation games for life.*
* Enough games to last a ”lifetime” means five 5,000 yen games a year for 100 years, which will be worth 2.5 million yen.
VOTE FOR YOUR FAVOURITE PLAYFACE!!!
The out of home portion of the campaign will feature posters of 25 unique playfaces, highlighting Japan’s emotions through gaming. The posters will take over major Tokyo train stations at Shibuya, Harajuku, Shinjuku and Ikebukuro.
