Hori’s Hatsune Miku Project Diva Controller In Action

By Spencer . April 15, 2011 . 12:32pm

Arcade joystick manufacturer Hori is making the ultimate Hatsune Miku: Project Diva accessory. They have an arcade style controller for Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Dreamy Theater 2nd.




So, to use this you have to plug your PSP with Hatsune Miku: Project Diva 2nd into your PS3 and connect Hori’s controller into the console. When everything is set up you have something like this video.



At 29,939 yen ($360) its only a little less than the price of a PlayStation 3 in Japan.

    If you spend that much on a controller you have something wrong with you :P You could probably make one for less XD

    • The idea of making a PJD controller sounds like it would be a fun summer project.

    • Sanwa OBSA-100UMQ = 3,995¥ each * 8 = 31,960¥ total
      Sanwa OBSF-30 = 189¥ each * 1
      Wiring and creating a reasonable wooden facsimile of the casing = PRICELESS

      Also, I couldn’t find an equivalent part to the two L/R buttons at the top corners.

        Ah maybe not then lol But still it’s frikin expensive :|

      • I suppose you could shrink it down and use the OBSF-30s instead. It wouldn’t have the same arcade-y feel with the big, illuminated buttons, but it would definitely be a lot cheaper.

        • The OBSF-30 is a 30mm button, the standard for most arcade stick buttons. The only OBSF-30 on the Project DIVA controller is for the tiny little Start button in the middle. It’s in no way an acceptable replacement for the main buttons.

          • I guess it’s a matter of preference. I never did like the feel of the big bubble buttons.

            While the controller I have in mind would be much smaller, just having arcade-style buttons would make alternating D-Pad and face buttons hits so much easier for me.

    29,939 yen?! Yikes.

      They are just too busy adding songs, upgrading and adding more content to the arcade version, I mean… have you seen some of the new arcade songs? they put so much to shame the songs on the psp versions.

      Plus not forgetting Diva2nd features only song playback + keys sort of like DDR compared to Diva1st that actual had miku keysampled to each key, lame sega.. lame.

      Edit: Added the reference video.

      • The removal of the keysounds was probably due to RAM/UMD storage limitations. Given the tradeoff was almost double the amount of songs and possibly better visuals, I think I can live with it.

  • I never cleared Gekishou at extreme =(

    • MarkMario

      It’s okay, I haven’t either ^^

      • KotaroInugami

        Ditto. Watching him made me wanna try again so I did. Still no dice…

  • The game isn’t even that good. I don’t see the reason why anyone would buy a controller for it unless they are a total douchebag or just an incredibly scary miku fanboy. I can probably make my own controller for less £100 by just buying; wood, Sanwa buttons, playstation 3 controller and a couple of wires. Then again not everyone can make their own controller.

    When is the 2nd Dreamy Theater coming out? It’s also 3000 yen right? (the PSN tickets are so expensive..) I got a lot of use out of my arcade stick w/ fighters and shmups.. but just getting it for one game like the Virtual on dual stick is too much..

  • 29,939 yen ($360)

    Holy crap =/

    What I’d do for this…
