Project Diva F is an enjoyable music game starring popular virtual idol Hatsune Miku. And like most games these days, there are more than a few Easter eggs for those paying attention. Moreover, as Project Diva F is a game made by Sega, many of these Easter eggs are callbacks to other Sega-related products.

My personal favourite of these is in the video for the song “Remote Control” which begins with vocaloid Rin playing her Sega Dreamcast. But soon she discovers her Dreamcast controller (with mic attachment — you know, for the ultimate experience) can control her brother Len as well. And thus she begins to make him dance with the power of Sega.

Another of these fun little callbacks is the video for the song “Online Game Addicts Sprechchor” in which Hatsune Miku is controlling her avatar in the Sega-owned MMO Phantasy Star Online 2. Of course, Miku, being the titular diva that she is, has her avatar give a concert in the game.

Better still, for anyone needing a bit more Inception in their lives, the Project Diva F video for “Online Game Addicts Sprechchor” has actually been aired on the giant screen in the main plaza inside of Phantasy Star Online 2 (where the video itself is set) for all the players to see.

Check out the video above to see these videos in all their HD glory.
