Jonathan and Randolph try to understand the Japanese vocaloid craze while playing the most recent Project DIVA rhythm game. Warning: may contain cats, addictive J-Pop, and extreme petting.

It's too bad these guys won't stop talking long enough to actually hear some of the JPOP in this game.

I've been playing this for a while, and it's a nice game, but I don't think it's worth the money that you have to pay to import it, though.

I bought Project Diva F for psvita in tokyo last november, it was quite a hit there. The game is manic and really difficult! (and I'm quite a pro in rhythm games)

God I miss games like this.

Publishers need to get their act together. Not all American gamers are obsessed with guns, blood and swearing!! We like cute things!!

Maybe your bottom line wouldn't be so bad if you weren't putting all your eggs in one basket.

I've known about Hatsune Miku for years now but I never knew there were games...this makes all other rhythmic games look tame...Although from what I'm seeing it does a pretty bad job of matching the rhythm and the notes :P

Vocaloids and Hatsune Miku are an extremely interesting phenomena, especially the way it really took off. Vocaloids work partly because of the structure of spoken Japanese requiring a relatively limited syllabary as compared to English for example. So even the first-gen of Vocaloids weren't entirely bad where as it's much harder to synthesise passable singing in English. Branding has made it so even the oddities produced in the synthesised singing aren't a negative, it's just part of how it sounds.

Whether they know it a not a lot more people have been exposed to vocaloid derived memes than they realise, for example Nyan cat lifted a vocaloid song.

I've only played the demo of this but simply being able to play it is one of the reasons I love the PS3 - no region restrictions. No need to import an entirely new console to play overseas games.

This is quite famous in Thailand too. Almost everyone who have Vita here have it.

Love this game and have the platinum in it, I would have gotten it twice if the trophies weren't shared between the PS3 and Vita versions

Unless I'm mistaken, Vocaloid (in particular, Hatsune Miku herself) has been popular for around a decade.

@josephl64 Same for me, might buy ps3 version later depending if they release new songs. Played over 100h on vita ^^

miku is from 2007, but vocaloid has been there since 2004, although it was never really popular untill miku came out
