Project Diva F Out Today on PS3: Hatsune Miku Hits the Stage!

Aaron Webber's Avatar Posted by Associate Brand Manager, Sega of America

Hatsune Miku - Project DIVA F on PS3

At long last, Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F is here! The game is in stores now, and will be available on the North American PlayStation Store later today. We’ve put together a new trailer, seen above, to celebrate the launch of the game. It features some amazing songs, and a look at both the “Miku Room” and “Edit Mode” features in the game.

In the “Miku Room”, you can interact with your favorite characters and fully customize their room with special themes, furniture, and more. You can also buy them gifts using your DIVA Points, and each will trigger a special event!

“Edit Mode” lets you create your very own Rhythm videos with any song you own. The possibilities are almost limitless, and your creativity will let you build the ultimate music video featuring your favorite music. You can upload your creations online to share with your friends and the world — we can’t wait to see the amazing videos you’re going to create!

A long time ago, we asked you on Facebook if you would support Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F. Your responses were overwhelming, and your voices combined into a song that paved the way for Miku’s first console game in the West. It’s because of you we’ve arrived here today, celebrating the release of Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F on PS3. We couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you all so much!

First off, I just want to say thanks for bringing a Project Diva game over here. It’s great being able to support it.

I do have a question somewhat related to Project Diva, but more towards Sega generally.

If this game sells well according to whatever Sega has in mind as successful, will this open discussion up internally for more Japanese Sega exclusive games to maybe make the jump to the west? I know you can’t comment specifically on games, so I won’t waste time naming any, but just putting it out there I would support them.

I’m really only asking because I’ve been a fan of Sega for many many years, and it sucks to see a company I love not release games that people seem to really want. It’s a nice change to see Sega supporting a Project Diva game in the states. And honestly, I just don’t want to have any false hope for more releases like this.

Either way, thanks again for listening to fans and bringing at least Project Diva F over. I’ll be getting my pre-order delivered tomorrow, and I can’t wait to dig in.

    You’re very welcome. It’s thanks to fans like you that Miku is releasing today!

    I totally feel you on the second part of your comments, but I don’t have any news I can share on that front right now. However, it goes without saying that Miku succeeding will be a great benefit for SEGA and for all of our titles like it.

    I hope you enjoy the game once you get your hands on it tomorrow – thank you again!

After much debate in my head I decided to buy the game. Not a vocaloid or Hatsune Miku fan but that demo was pretty fun gotta admit.

My amazon preorder will arrive on Friday. I bought the game only to add it to my Miku collection (all PSP-games, japaneese Project Diva f, japaneese Project Diva А with arcade style mini-controller, not counting all the figures and etc.). I won’t play it on PS3. But what I will play is the Vita-version. Sega – please, make it happen, and I will gladly buy it for the FOURTH time.

Kilburn474 said:

August 27th, 1:36 pm

Some of these comments here are sickening. Guys, lets be rational here on the Vita edition:

The PS3 has over 73 MILLION in sales. That’s 73 million potential customers (I know that’s not possible in reality but humor me). Compare that to the Vita. It’s a new system & has MUCH LOWER sales. Now, what would you rather go for, 73m potential customers or not even 1/10th of tat? Yes, both WOULD have the highest number of potential customers, but the cost for bringing the one with the lower number over has to be low enough to turn a profit. You can boycott if you want, but just know that by doing so, you hurt the chances of ANY other Miku game landing over here.

Now, I’m LOVING the game! It’s gorgeous and the screenshot function has me making wallpapers out of all song video. I got it at midnight from my local gamestop & I can’t wait to get off work @ play some more. I hope we get more Miku and i will throw every but of money I can at this game to support it. I may even buy another copy later to keep it sealed. Thanks again or bringing it over and let me apologize on behalf of the real fans for the rude treatment you’ve been getting Aaron.

It is nice to see you bringing titles like these over, but like so many other people, the vita version is the better version. I loved the vita version, but I can not get into the PS3 version. The rhythm seems off for some reason.

You should also look into localizing the PSP titles for vita play, they had some of the best vocaloid songs in them.

My boyfriend (I’m a guy) hates Vocaloid, while I love Vocaloid a lot so I know he is really against me purchasing this title. But I made up my mind and I’m getting this today or tomorrow when I get my paycheck (digital edition of course)

My bestfriend is also getting her to support Vocaloid so maybe afterwards they will release newer versions or maybe the old PSP titles for download, now that would be awesome.

I just wish there was a cheaper version for ps+ subscribers or at least to offer a free DLC for us. I know I’m asking to much but it would be a good idea.

I hope there’s upcoming DLC now that Hatsune Miku’s V3 is going to be released soon would be great to listen to some English songs from here already on this game.

And I’ll be enjoying this game on my Playstation 3D TV ^_^

Thank you for this release it made me happy.

I’m happy to see Miku come to the West! I hope this is just the beginning and we see more Miku games or games like this over here. I’m getting my copy today.

I’ll say it would be nice to have the Vita version down the line if this does well. But I am still thankful to have this game here at all. Thanks for bringing Miku here!!!

I also fail to understand why “fans” of this game would hate on Sega for not bringing over the Vita version of this game. The Vita could certainly use more games like this but the reasons for Sega to bring this game to the PS3 instead of the Vita in North America (where the Vita is struggling) are reasonable and are obvious. I guess these “fans” just don’t really understand and refuse to try to understand.

Anyway it’s nice to see this game come to North America and I definitely support it and I’m glad to see that a really large number of people also support it. It’s also nice to see so many replies on the PlayStation Blog. Thanks.

    Jet Set is also one of my favorite series from the Dreamcast era. Very good memories.

Xanzar said:

August 27th, 2:26 pm

and by S I mean sadist, its completely sad that you guys don’t localize alot of stuff (I’ve been looking at a lot of great IPs available in Japan[sadly they are only in Japan], like PSO2 , Valkyria chronicles(the series IE three and so on), Yakuza, some galge{though you guys have been localizing some of it recently})

    Aaron Webber's Avatar

    Aaron Webber said:

    August 27th, 5:06 pm

    Aha, it’s nice to hear some support for those games, too! I loved Valkyria (both games) and played PSO for many years, ever since the Dreamcast.

Project Diva: Sega HAVE THIS GAME OFFICIAL FOR VITA in the Japanese version, and is not seen how many people wanting this game for PSVita, because is PERFECT to play on VITA! Here in U.S. and Europe you are going to find many Hatsune Miku fans!

A personal request: After Burner Climax for PSVITA! This game Already have for: PS3, X-Box 360, iOS, Android, and Vita need one airplane game. After Burner is a classic!

Thank you for releasing Hatsune Miku: Project Diva f here in the states. I got my copy from Amazon and I’m really enjoying it so far. I hope you can consider bringing the Vita version and the sequel as well.

Also, do you know what other Japanese rhythm I would also love to see? I would love to see SEGA bring K-On! Houkago Live to the states too.

August 27th, 2:55 pm

Just here to wish you good luck with Miku in the west and, of course, to +1 that “please let us have the Vita version too”, lol. I’m pretty sure I posted this countless times already in every other post where such a debate started, but yeah, no PS3 here and this is the sort of game that I would much prefer to take with me on the go.

Still, Diva titles are really great rhythm games and Miku is one hell of a charismatic figure, so I hope both are able to find success over here in the West. And then, who knows, even if we don’t get Diva 1 Vita, maybe Diva 2 will fare better. Just know the audience is there!

Hey Aaron, if there was to be a Vita release, would that also mean the Bundle as seen in Japan? That’s what I would want, and would be a great way for me to become a Vita owner. Day 1 purchase if the bundle received a US release, that Vita looked awesome.

@29: Last I checked, spoiled children didn’t ask companies to release things you want so you can buy them, let alone offer to buy something you don’t want (PS3 version) if you get the version you want (Vita). Last I checked, spoiled children cried to their parents and threw over displays in stores until their parents bought them the toy they want.

Elvick_ said:

August 27th, 3:53 pm

@83: Do you realize how foolish that argument is. Think about what it is you’re saying. You are talking about a niche market, one used to Miku on handhelds due to past games being on handheld. One that likely imports them. Odds are, fans have a PS Vita due to Project Diva f already. Odds are, many prefer the series on handhelds anyway. I know many who don’t even like the genre on consoles at all.

It may be a niche market, but the particular niche is very specific to handhelds.

@88: If any of that is reference to me, then I would *NOT* enjoy the PS3 version. Thus would not support it even if the PS Vita version didn’t exist at all. But would have certainly bought it had they brought the PS Vita too, because that’s how I roll. I reward companies who do things the way they should be done.

@97: While we’re not entitled to get what we want to buy, we’re also not obligated to support them “just because” either. We are entitled to our freedom as consumers, to support who we wish and for what reasons we wish.

As happy as I am to finally be receiving this game. I am desperate for the Vita version. I have been contemplating just buying a Japanese import of it instead because this wait is unbearable. Not to mention I don’t even know if I will be receiving a version. Oh well, I’ll try to hold out.
