Dreamy Theater 2nd Gives Hatsune Miku: Project Diva 2nd A Dash Of High-Definition

By Ishaan . December 24, 2010 . 1:30pm

Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Dreamy Theater 2nd is an interesting piece of work. The PlayStation 3 app, developed by Sega, allows you to play Hatsune Miku: Project Diva 2nd in high-definition on your PS3, provided you own the original PSP game.


Sega released a similar app for the original Hatsune Miku: Project Diva back in June of this year as well. Dreamy Theater 2nd is due for release in Summer 2011. Here are some quick comparison screens:

    Sweet, would very much like to play Miku on the TV.. spent 800 yen on Malicious though, only have 2100 yen left.. guess this would cost 3000 yen like the first Dreamy Theater? They should just make this a console game instead of this go around using the PSP hooking up to the PS3, the PSN yen tickets are so dang expensive.. (1000 yen ~$20 / 3000 yen ~$50)

      I haven’t even gotten around to buy Dreamy Theater for PJD1, but this is even better since I like PJD2 a lot more. I shall wait for this one instead.

      And, regarding that this is a separate app for PS3 – SEGA is guaranteed some sales of Dreamy Theater for people who have the game and a PS3. For some who hasn’t bought PJD2 and has a PS3 – this is some extra sales for the PSP game and then some extra gravy purchasing DT2.

      Either that or I’m thinking about SEGA marketing all wrong…but why wouldn’t they like extra money?

      • Aoshi00

        yea, definitely nickel and diming us.. frankly I’m not too keen on playing a rhythm game on the PSP.. I didn’t get the first Miku game and heard the 2nd improved on the first in almost every way, so I just got the sequel instead but haven’t played it much, I would love to get this add-on to be able to play on the big screen w/ HD graphics. So more money for them, I got the PSP game for $50, and getting add-ons on the Jpn PSN w/ tickets is not cheap… I just wished Miku would get a straight console game if they could do this app to add to the portable ver, guess people in Jpn like the PSP…

        • ^This.
          They bothered to release Dreamy Theatre which utilises HD graphics, but not releasing a standalone PS3 Miku game, which wouldn’t be that hard to do, since all they need to do is add menus and voila! So many things I have yet to understand :(

    • It’s a great PSP game, I recommend to almost everyone, but I would have loved to have played this on a TV, too if only to hear it on stereo.
      I guess I have to have a Japanese PSN account to get this, though? I have one for my PSP, so I should be okay, I think.

      • Aoshi00

        Chipmunk electronic squeaks dolby 5.1 lol (nah, I can’t set up loud speakers to disturb the neighbors).. yea, if you have one for the PSP, you should be able to set up a Jpn acct on the PS3 w/ the same ID and password. You haven’t gotten one yet, there’s lots of free goodies there.

  • PrinceHeir

    Miku rocks :D

    hopefully i can get this along with the new DJ Max :)

    • Do not get the new DJ Max. It’s easily few of the worst DJ Max games to date. :(

      I made a huge mistake of buying the limited edition, and I regret every penny of it. If you have Black Square or DJMP2, go play those instead and wait for a real DJ Max game.

      • PrinceHeir

        how so? is it the lack of music? or too easy? or the content is not on par with past titles?

        im still waiting for a PS3 DJ Max, the creator promise us :)

        • Only 40 songs, huge number of songs are remixed, very few songs that I actually liked (My opinion), removed a whole bunch of features, the game requires you to grind songs constantly just to level up, no 5 button mode, no 8 button mode, no 4 button FX mode, videos that look horribly blocky and pixelated, and a whole lot more. I spent like 9 hours into it so far and I’ve only gotten to level 16, but that’s also because I kinda found a very repetitive way around it.

          The game just feels lazy. The new remix system is good, and there’s no auto-correct so those are cool, but there’s nothing else to really talk about. Just read some of the comments the users are saying.


          • PrinceHeir

            40 songs only? aww man i was expecting at least 70-100 songs not to mention they can just add a install function for those songs and faster loading times. can you explain to me the 4 button FX mode? i only played the series little but im already addicted to it, awww no 5 and 8 button makes me sad :( i wonder why they removed it?

            i think it’s already hard unlocking songs in the last game, now it more harder? WTF.

            guess will wait for the next game for the PSP2 or PS3 :)

          • Well, if you’re pretty new to the series, pick up the DJ Max Black Square and Clazziquai combo pack from Play-Asia. Black square is the best one in the series so far, in my opinion.

          • PrinceHeir

            aww i see :D

            well i’ll be getting those as well as the DJ MAX PC game. have u played it? :)

          • I heard DJ Max Trilogy is a great game with 127 songs from DJ Max P 1, DJ Max P2, some from technika and brand new stuff of its own. I’m picking it up next month actually, haha.

  • MarkMario

    I need.

  • z_merquise

    Just a question: why is Hatsune Miku so dang popular?

    Don’t get the wrong idea, I don’t hate her so please don’t kill me, Miku fanatics. Yeah, she’s so cute and lovely and all but I’m just curious about her.

    • It’s just one of those things, I think it’s the whole android gimmick though. Personally I prefer songs using Meiko’s voice.

    • Aoshi00

      It started as a vocaloid program, before the rhythm games on the PSP, where people could make the virtual voice sing any song they want, even English songs, I think you could find all sorts of Miku songs people made on youtube. And of course Hatsune Miku is a cute and colorful mascot w/ her trusty scallion :)

      • goronyan

        and even if miku’s vocal bank is older than other vocaloids she’s still the favourite for composing new songs

    • I guess it’s sort of like Touhou where the character and designs really took off because there was enough room for the fans to project their own liking and appeal for other fans.
      Plus the music!

    • It’s actually a mind control device made by the Elevens. Try listening to songs made by supercell. You’ll know what I mean

  • nyoron

    Looks like I need to pick up some PSN yen.

    Anyone know if you can use a dual shock to play this? Or do you have to use the PSP as the controller?

    • Aoshi00

      If I remember correctly, I think it’s played w/ the DS3 once your PSP is hooked up, w/ trophies too (?) It would be awful to need to sit close to the TV while the game is shown in HD full screen. yea, I need to get some yen too..

      • nyoron

        Oh that’s good news, thanks. Yeah that’s pretty much what I was worried about, having to sit close would suck and I find the DS3 much more comfortable anyway.

    • Gestahl

      You can use any controller for the Dreamy Theater – some people even played it with the plastic guitars and drums. :-D

  • man if you’re gonna go through all the effort of totally remaking the game on ps3 might as well put it up on PSN rather than making it some kind of hidden bonus for people who own both a psp and a ps3

  • While I am in no way a fan of vocaloid; sounds too synthetic to me at this time; it is a great thing to see a company doing something like this for fans.

  • I wish Capcom did something like this for Monster Hunter. Anyways I want this but I read about a lot of people having trouble making this work. Does anyone knows about a guide or something?
