Are there Vita games? I have a game called Hyperdimension Neptunia PP: Producing Perfection that seems very similar!

Speaking of Idols ANN has an article asking why they can't live normal lives. The forum for it is crazy with messages of hate saying that it is wrong and they can't be like singers here in the US.

http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/answ...5-07-24/.90830

I mean most of these girls know what they are getting into when they sign up. There are certain rules and expectations when you sign that contract. It is like any contract, rules are rules.
If you don't want to be an idol then quit, simple as that.
I mean look at AKB you can graduate and have a normal life. So I don't see why they are hating on the idol style and fans. It's funny that Americans seem to always quickly criticize a culture before really trying to understand it I guess.

Nah. That game is more like a parody of Idolm@ster and AKB48. The Neptunia series has always been a parody of other videogames and videogame systems. It has nothing to do with Idolm@ster, but that game is like it. Not 100% considering it's the Neptunia girls vs. MOB48. But does have that whole idol-raising system.

PS Vita does have an Idolm@ster game coming in the near future, but it's just a Taiko Drum Master game.

Btw the JP PSN is having a sale on the games themselves at the moment, both PS3 games and all the PSP games.
I didn't look at the SHINY FESTA prices but the PS3 games were between approx 2000-2500 yen and the SP series were about 1500 yen each if I recall correctly.
Lasts until the end of this month.
Shame my friends won't be playing it with me until next month so I can't convince them to get them while they're cheap but the discs aren't much anymore anyway either.

I'll post this here instead of the haul thread for obvious reasons:



The iDOLM@STER ANIM@TION MASTER Namassuka SPECIAL 01-05 CDs.
These are just a few extra songs, most of which weren't actually in the show as far as I recall besides Little Match Girl and Nanairo Button- and then a bunch of cover songs (such as Takane singing Tamashii no Refrain from Evangelion and Chihaya singing Shangri-La by Angela from Fafner)

Ending The Service Of An iOS Game Should Not Be Celebrated, But At Least The Games Are More Affordable Now.

Quote:
The Idolmaster Shiny Festa games are cheaper than they’ve ever been. Bandai Namco will be ending service on these three Apple iOS games. To celebrate the series and end of its run, all three of the titles’ prices have dropped to $3.99 as part of a Service Ending Blowout Sale. Previously, The Idolmaster Shiny Festa: Harmonic Score, Melodic Disc, and Rhythmic Record each cost $54.99 at launch, and their lowest sale prices tended to hover around $24.99.

This The Idolmaster Shiny Festa Service Ending Blowout Sale also applies to DLC. Originally, people needed to pay additional fees to get extra music from the online store for each iteration of the game. All music is now free from the online shop.

The Idolmaster Shiny Festa service will end on March 15, 2016. Song DLC will no longer be available from the in-game store after that date, and Bandai Namco will stop supporting the game to make sure it works with later versions of Apple iOS firmware.

Each one of The Idolmaster Shiny Festa entries stars specific idols. Harmonic Score stars Haruka, Chihaya, Ritsuko, and Azusa. Melodic Disc stars Miki, Makoto, Takane, and Yukiho. Rhythmic Record’s idols are Iori, Hibiki, Yayoi, Ami, and Mami. Each game consists of some animated story segments, accompanied by a traditional rhythm game.

Frustratingly, these have never even been available on the Australian store. Luckily I have the PSP games at least.

Same as this post, not idolm@ster but idol related.
Got a little tipsy last night and decided to finally pull out that 7 or 8 disc AKB48 Tokyo Dome concert BD box I had hidden away. Simultaneously an amazing decision and a grave miscalculation On Drunk Alex's part, I'm still watching at the moment with all my family home

EDIT: As a result I've finally gone and ordered the music video Blu-Ray boxes, for nostalgia reasons of course

Bandai Namco Entertainment announced on Thursday that it will release a PlayStation VR software titled The IDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls Viewing Revolution. The title will launch on October 13, the same day the PlayStation VR headset ships.

The title will be set at the Maihama Amphitheater, setting of the "THE IDOLM@STER CINDERELLA GIRLS 1st LIVE WONDERFUL M@GIC!!" live event that took place in April 2014, when The IDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls anime was first announced. Players will get to experience a performance in virtual reality, and can use a PlayStation Move as a glowstick.
