What Happened to Tanabata Event (8/7/13-8/28/13)?

13 replies 280 views Edited Aug 22, 2013

I read ("Your PS Home Net") that the Tanabata Event was supposed to end on 8/27/13.  I bought the required bikini on the day it was released (8/14/13) in order to participate in the event and get the bed reward.  However, after the 8/21/13 update, the event was no longer available in the Glittering Sands Beach Lounge.  I am disappointed because I thought I still had time to finish the flight event and get all the rewards.  So what happened?  Why did they take away the flight event a week early?  (I searched everywhere I could think of to find out if I missed the announcement about the event ending on 8/21/13 instead of 8/28/13.  But I could not find anything.)

 

I also read that "the flight game can continue to be enjoyed in the Glittering Sands Secluded Retreat after the Tanabata Event."  But what does that mean?  Does it mean you can fly around in the personal space without the rewards?  I'm sorry, but I don't feel the need to fly around without getting the rewards.

 

Any help about this matter would be appreciated.

I haven't checked my personal but I think the flight game is still there and you can win the rewards.

I believe the nightime Tanabana Version is still availble in the last tab (I forgot the name) the one with all the spaces just scroll down.

Those dates are for Asia. 

 

They put a permanent version of the flight game (not really a game) in the Glittering sands personal space that you can use. Don't know if that will give you the rewards still, but you can try.

If your are correct and those dates are for Asia, can you or anyone tell me where the NA Tanabata Event dates were published?  Where did you read the ending date would be 8/21/13 for NA Home?  Doesn't it seem a bit unfair for Granzella to release an outfit that you have to buy in order to get the best reward with only 7 days left to the event.

 

I would like to know where to find event dates so I don't make the same mistake in the future.  Thanks.

It was suppose to end on the 14th. Haven't visit the space since then, so I don't know if it lasted more. But, they really need to put dates within Home so everyone can see it.

It was published after the July 31.

 

#PlayStationHome Tanabata 2013 has started in the Glittering Sands Beach in NA! The event lasts until August 14th. http://goo.gl/Ktgdo

This tweet was posted on Aug 1.

 

The best way to know how long is probably look at Granzella's tweets or ask someone that really tracks down on these kind of events. Recent Granzella events has been held at different times between regions, so you might get mixed up with others. 

 

And, this isn't the first time Granzella published something 7 days before an event ends. They have been doing this for quite a while.

 

But wasn't the bikini released on the 7th?

I don't understand how it was supposed to end on 8/14/13 when you could not buy the required outfits to get the best reward (the bed) until the 14th.  So I'm still scratching my head like a monkey.  (Oh, wait a minute... maybe I am a monkey since I feel like a fool.) lol
