Project Diva Hatsune Miku

SEGA has made a statement regarding streaming and recording game play for Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA X:

“Hi everybody – with Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA X now available to the public on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita, we hope you’re loving the experience of helping out Miku and her pals as they try to re-energize their digital world! There’s one serious topic we’d like to bring up though, and that’s the concept of streaming/recorded gameplay.

Arguably one of the coolest things about Hatsune Miku and her friends is the fact that they exist because there’s such a strong community behind her. Every one of her songs, dances, etc., are created by Miku fans, just like you! This also means that those fans who created that content also retain rights to it.

What this means is the artists and their labels have the right to control how this content is distributed, including popular streaming/video sites like Twitch and YouTube. To ensure our fans do not inadvertently run into infringement complications, all while allowing you to share your gameplay with your friends, the video streaming from your PS4’s “Share” feature removes the music from your stream, allowing you to stream without worries.

…But for those other content creators who rely on direct feed, we want to be transparent so you don’t run the risk of impacting your channel.

That’s it! For the majority of those who will share gameplay video natively through the PS4, there’s nothing to worry about. But for those other content creators, we wanted to make sure we were clear on the risks of leaving the game music in your uploads/streams!”

So what are all your thoughts on this?

Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA X is now available for the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita. If you like you can check out our review of the game here.

About Walter P

Plays too much, but still has too many games to finish. Will play any type of game and will watch anything, so is of course not good at being productive. Loves anything crazy.

    With the recent draconian Youtube changes this copyright issue is becoming more prevalent. They are basically rejecting free advertising of their product. Good thing that at least Sega has nothing against streaming the gameplay.

    It’s really too bad that the music can’t be played, as it is essentially free promotion. But at least Sega is being upfront about this as they would have undoubtedly received questions on it.
