Recent buzz has been circulating about SEGA of Japan’s interest in bringing Project Diva Arcade (or some version of it) to select home consoles, and they have opened a poll on their own DIVA.NET site to gauge interest from fans.

The idea is intriguing, as SEGA has expressed in the past that they were interested in making a game similar to Project Diva Arcade for the PS4, due to its new touch-enabled controller. But simply porting the full Arcade game to home consoles could negatively impact the popularity of the actual arcade units. So SEGA might be considering some other kind of idea.

Many sites seem to have excluded how to vote from their own news publications, so we’re happy to help with that. Please note that voting requires a DIVA.NET account (which requires proper registration with your Project Diva Arcade card). There is a 300vp reward for completing the survey. Voting ends April 24th (JST)!

    This has got to be the best news I have heard in a long time,not to mention my b-day is on Friday! I have been wanting PDArcade on PS4 since the PS4 first came out!

  • John Guerra

    I have a question,I have researched in the past multiple times but still have no idea on how to aquire an Arcade IC card,is it provided to you when you play the on the Arcade unit? I would love to fill out the survey but having never been able to go to a Round 1 arcade when I went to MikuExpo, I have yet to expirence playing on the machine and getting an IC card so please help!

  • jrharbort

    You get one from the arcade staff where PjDA machines are located.

  • John Guerra

    Okay I thought so,just needed clarification,thanks so much!

    Well, with where I live, I’ve never seen a Project Diva Arcade machine even remotely close to me, so having a card would be slim and none, with more emphasis on the none. In fact, the closest machine to me is about 1200 miles away.

    That being said, I’d be interested in seeing a home console port, but if there was a way to tie the card into being able to work for both the console and arcade versions it could help. Say the arcade version can get you the points in order to unlock whatever modules/songs/etc, which are saved on the card. Having the card’s ID # tied into the home console version would call up the information and allow those items to be unlocked quicker in the console version than trying to do it without the card.

    Now the home version wouldn’t allow you to gain points for the card, but for songs and such it could give you practice, which helps in getting the points for the arcade version.

    Of course the fun part now is trying to figure out how DLC would work… maybe the extra costumes on the card would allow for either free or reduced prices when downloading from PSN, or perhaps getting the early advantage access of the download.

    The question is of course whether enough players of the arcade version would go for this.
