For all the other 6.7 billion people that were unable to attend this year’s Tokyo Game Show to check out the latest from Q-Games at the PixelJunk booth, PlayStation Home brings home the TGS PixelJunk booth to PlayStation 3’s everywhere…in Japan.

Having introduced the PixelJunk series into the virtual online community a couple months ago, the Japanese version of the Home space added a virtual rendition of Q-Games’ TGS booth.

We must say, the designers of the Home space created a very accurate replica of the TGS booth in a relatively short amount of time for everyone in Japan to enjoy. Of course for everyone across the pond and on the east-Atlantic continental shelf, there is always the option of creating a Japanese account and checking the Home space out that way.

Should we see more trade-show events promoted with virtual renditions such as this? Or should corporations broadcast the events live similar to E3?
