I'm not agree with all this stuff.
Many persons like Hatsune Miku and they just showed it through clicking the "Like" button. Maybe they don't want Hatsune Miku singing in English. Have you thought about that? I clicked "like" because I like her and her songs and I don't want her singing in English. I think it can sound badly. It's better if she sings in Japanese like originally was thought. Making her sing in English would destroy her present image.
They should have made a special poll where asking this, like "Agree" and "Disagree".

That's cool, I guess. I want Gumi's version though.

Hatsune Miku facebook page already has 53,304 people (as of this moment).
When they say English launch, is it like gonna be a program with English instructions and installation, or will Miku have an English voice?

old news is old news.
Though I am curious if they'll keep Fujita Saki's voice or not.

you can't call it miku if it isn't Fujita Saki..

otherwise...┐( ̄ー ̄)┌

Okay, I sent Saki a letter and asked her to provide some information about this project (as long as she actually knows something herself). Can't guarantee she will actually answer anything though, but if she does, I'll post it here.

Does this means, if this is successful there's a chance that they'll release the Vocaloid games? Hoping so :3

I'm not much of a Vocaloid expert but I don't see how it could work well in English.
