SCEJ president Hiroshi Kawano on the Vita, social games and the power of Hatsune Miku

At the Tokyo Game Show this year, we stopped to chat with Hiroshi Kawano, president of Sony Computer Entertainment Japan, about his company's future. In part one (above), we ask about how Sony plans to push the PlayStation Vita, which was a big focus of the company's press conference this year (bo...

Hatsune Miku not planned for North America, at E3 as 'sneak peek'

Yesterday, when I found Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F for Vita in Sony's E3 booth, I interpreted that as evidence of a North American release. After all, it was a game being shown at E3. However, that isn't actually the case. Today, I went back to the booth and spotted a Sega rep next to the demo. H...

'Hatsune Miku' bringing synthesized vocal music gaming to North American Vita [update: not announced for North America]

In Japan, Hatsune Miku Project Diva F is a big enough game to command its own Vita hardware bundle, featuring a special-edition console and everything.

Play music with a nonexistent person

For this blogger, Hatsune Miku is something to be feared. Something about the creepy voice makes this blogger cringe like that scene where Freddy is scratching his claw against a chalkboard. Except, you know, less awesome. But, the fears of one man are not to affect an entire country, as the fake th...

Fan-created Mario game is all waggle, no Wiimote

Okay, we heart this anonymous Japanese programmer. He created a version of Super Mario Bros. in which players move their hands in front of a webcam in order to push Mario around. It's not very intuitive, and it doesn't look that useful, but it's awesome. Things can just be uselessly cool sometimes,...

Hatsune Miku sings your favorite video game classics, doesn't exist

Inexplicably, the voice synthesizer program Vocaloid 2 is a massive hit in Japan. Well, it's slightly less inexplicable when we specify that the "Hatsune Miku" version of Vocaloid 2 takes music and lyrics and exports voice output that sounds like it was sung by a female idol singer.
