A release in the West would we awesome.
I mean, I've already ordered the Japanese. version and these games are easy enough to understand, but I'd consider buying it twice if that meant we would get future titles right from the start.
Here's to hoping there are enough supporters for this~

Support + PS3 = Failure.

There's another console in this market, Sega.

Want my support? Cater to my console. Otherwise, stop wasting our time.

lol it's only a failure in your case. They'll release the game however they feel like regardless of your console.

Yeah... I don't know what console you're talking about, but um, PS3 is definitely one of the most successful consoles on the market. MUCH MUCH more than XBOX360 (except in the states). Japan doesn't want to touch XBOX360 with a stick (have you SEEN the sales charts every week?). They're not going to reprogram an entire game just so you won't be unhappy. So please don't say "our time", when you are just about the only one complaining.

I'm planning to get the Japanese version, but I've been buying the Japanese games since they first started coming out! Great games. Hope more people in the west can appreciate them.

A contact which is near to SEGA told me this has been already decided, so probably this is just to create hype between fans.
However, it's great news indeed.

Who's this "our"?. And are we talking about Xbox or Wii here? because considering how well the game does on one of the more prominent platform in Japan, I'm not surprised they release it on that as the Xbox has a battle with the PS2 week by week in Japan and the Wii has slowed down.

Neither does SEGA of America get a say in this. They're already doing bad enough.

Here's your problem. The video game industry doesn't cater to a single person's requests, but rather the requests of many. In Japan, the Nintendo Wii U, and Xbox 360 are not very successful platforms right now, so many games whose main selling territory is Japan skip out on those platforms.

You are correct. A July ship date has been decided.

SEGA has been looking for the choice between which IP they want to be the final packaged release on non SEGA console platforms before the company's major re-organization strategy set for the 2nd Quarter of 2013, Colonial Marines was initially chosen, but due to its backlash, SEGA has determined that Miku receiving a niche release may not be such a bad investment after all.

The game will be downloadable for PSN if you want to play it for Vita as well.

I voted for Miku in All Star's Racing when they were asking who should be DLC in that game
and today I hope that Project Diva F will be over here in the states

Just because a PS3 game is released on PSN doesn't mean it's playable on Vita, unless SEGA releases Hatsune Miku: Project Diva f (the Vita build) in North America.

...
SEGA still has its own console platforms?!

I do wish that SEGA, and companies in general, would stop allowing input on these sorts of "campaigns" solely via FaceBook. I don't have a FB, do not want a FB, and if SEGA truly wants our input it shouldn't require a FB account.

I'd also like to see this debut on non-PS3 consoles. The pending PS4 will instantly obsolete any and all PS3 games, yet the next Xbox has the potential to run any & all Xbox 360 games. It's a wiser investment. Since the PS4 is actually a PC in a fancy box, I'd like to see them put it on Steam and allow it to go cross-platform, perhaps even back to the PS3, as other games on Steam have.

I find it interesting that y'all maintain that SEGA would never use anything but the PS3 for this game as the PS3 is supremely popular in Japan, yet they're obviously using FaceBook here to market, which is ludicrously popular & pervasive in the USA but scarcely makes a dent in Japan. It's clearly easier for SEGA to market on FaceBook to the US than it is for them to port to the PC/Xbox from the more arcane PS3, granted, but this shows that they have a willingness to escape from the confines of "what works in Japan", confines that several strident posters here would seemingly swear SEGA could never escape. SEGA doesn't seem as closed-minded as posters here would like to believe.
