Oh man! I know I got the news a bit late, but Sega wants to know if English-speaking audiences want Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F (PS3)! At SXSW, they demoed an English preview build of Project Diva f (Vita) and Miku Flick (iOS), and it seems now they're looking for people to like and share their photo on their Facebook page here. The more likes and shares they can get, the more likely western audiences will get some Miku love! I hope we do!
Yep I liked them on Facebook awhile back and I haven't really used Facebook for a year or more. It was a quick and random drive-by 'Liking' by me. : ) I'm a big fan of the PSP games and I'd definitely like to play the others. The 3DS version would be neat too, but that likely won't come over here.

The thought of a Project Diva game in English (actual offical English too! Not a fan patch~!) was enough to make me go and login into my ignored facebook account and like le pic too. X'D Having it in English would be incentive enough to actually *ahem* buy the game!
I agree. I haven't bought one Project Diva yet. I'd planned to for the longest time, though. Once I've taken care of my responsibilities, am on my feet and can afford to treat myself, this would definitely be an excellent incentive to do so. Bonus points if Sega releases the PSP games, even if it'd just be on PSN. Which reminds me, I'll have to look up how to manage US and JP PSN accounts some time later.
// I don't think I've ever heard Kaito's Engrish, but Miku's can be done pretty well. I agree, I don't think they'd make English versions of any of these songs. I've never heard any of the official Japan-only English vocaloids, but word is they're old and don't quite live up to the quality of the newer Vocaloids featured in Project Diva.
Plus, I can't imagine an English vocaloid being any good unless it uses a dictionary/pronunciation database, (since English pronunciation rules are otherwise too inconsistent) in addition to some end-user tweaking, since several words share the same spelling but have different pronunciations.
