    Oh, nice, I'll have to pick that up eventually. I was hoping this would be translated as well. I do hope this will have less vocals-only mapped songs, but probably not. I mean, it kind of makes sense, but it seriously limits the difficulty of songs without bringing in ridiculous shit like Gekishou.

    If you want a ridiculously difficult rhythm game go play Beatmania IIDX. I think Project diva games are difficult enough for most people(including me) and if were more difficult would be frustrating(will you be happy if you couldn't pass normal songs??).

    I'm happy with the news, I'm actually one of those who bought the game three times, japanese Vita physical, usa PS3 physical and usa Vita digital, and I was evaluating importing F 2nd, but now there is no need to import it. if they release a special edition with soundtrack or something I'll give them all my diva points.

    Oh believe me, I know how difficult Beatmania can be :P
    But the problem I have with it is that once you play enough all but the hardest few songs become too easy to really be fun playing, and that doesn't really take that long. Not to mention having to slog through Hard and especially Normal before even being able to play songs on Extreme whenever a new game is released - it's a shame there's no faster way of unlocking the higher difficulties for veteran players. It doesn't have to be hard to the point of being unable to pass Normal, but having a setting above Extreme for the slower songs would be nice. I love certain songs (ACUTE on PDF, for example) but there just isn't much of a reason to play them again if playing through it feels boring.

    Are you actually complaining that Project Diva isn't up to your god-tier rhythm genre standards? It's fucking petite idols* dancing around to their songs.

    *I know they're vocaloids don't go all weeaboo on me

    I know what you mean by that. but some song are simply easier because are slow and boring, is like ask "hey, how fast is that car?? only 88MPH?? can't go faster than that?? bleh... boring". if they where to try and artificially put more notes, said notes will feel out of place and not on sync.
    now on the matter of unlocking the difficulties, yeah they should add something to unlock the harder difficulties earlier(link the game with the previous one perhaps) or simply don't lock them at all. but that add more play time to the game(albeit artificially).

    Great, now all we need is more platforms supported...

    PS4 for the Sony fans, maybe Xbox, One or 360...

    Don't know about Xbox being reasonable, but a Wii U + 3DS release would be nice, seeing as 3DS has had PD in the past (albeit Japan only release) and Nintendo is also a Japan based company like Sony.

    But really what we need is a PC release, I don't want to buy a new playstation just to play this game.

    The main series is Playstation only. The 3DS game is called Project Mirai and looks and plays different. I'm sure a PS4 release will appear eventually but I wouldn't hold my breath for any non-Sony platforms.

    By translated do you mean the lyrics or the menus?

    I don't see the point in translating the lyrics, and not all the Vocaloids present have an English VoiceBank

    I actually don't really care what platform it's ported to as long as that platform is PC.
    I already have ~$800 gaming PC and I honestly don't feel like dishing out a couple hundred for a PS3 that I'm never going to use for anything else.

    The AR on Vita is tempting though, but it could be pulled of on 3DS...

    Project Mirai is Japan region locked, I also don't want to buy a new 3DS.

    *sigh*Back to emulated Project Diva 2nd on my Nexus 7...
