We here at Destructoid love us some Video Games Live. However, so far our Japanese readers (could you raise your hands, we'd like to do a head count) haven't been able to experience the awesome as the concert series has never arrived in Japan. I know, it seems weird that one of the world's best known videogame music concerts hasn't been to a country where most of their music is from, but it is the case. That's all going to change come TGS this year (that's this week in case you hadn't noticed our fancy graphic at the top of the page announcing our coverage).

The show will be performing all over Japan for the week of the Tokyo Game Show, and for those interested in going the Japanese site is right here. The two biggest shows are taking place in the historic Tokyo International Hall, the largest indoor theater in Tokyo. The best part about the series is that many of the composers of the classic songs that Video Games Live performs will be on hand to perform with them. They don't give any exact names, but I assume since everyone is going to be in town for TGS anyway they got some pretty important guys to help out. Attendees of the show will also get to meet many of the composers at free meet and greets after the show. Anyone suddenly interested in flying to Japan?

In Japan, PlayStation Plus members get access to 250 PSP games this year

[Update: Evidently, Sony's press release states that you need to own the UMD first to get a free transfer.] Over in Japan, the PSP-to-Vita service is a bit different. They have a program called "UMD Passport," where you ...more
