Though superficially a management sim requiring players to oversee to the operations of an increasingly large music festival, the real draw of BigFest lies in discovering new bands. Sony has signed an agreement with the Jamendo music community to use its massive catalogue of unsigned indie artists in the game, ensuring that the acts playing on your virtual stage are all actual, real-world musicians. Unfortunately, developer On The Metal offers no word on how the headliners you choose might impact the game, beyond saying that "[d]iscovering top talent and selecting the best headliners are just a couple of the important responsibilities players will manage to get the all-important festival 'vibe' up."
Sony notes that while the PlayStation 3 and Vita games will be largely similar, the PlayStation 4 version of BigFest will feature graphics at 1080p resolution and 60 frames per second. No release date has yet be revealed for any version of BigFest.
