DJMax Portable (Korean: 디제이맥스 포터블, dijeimaegseu poteobeul; abbr.: DMP) is a music video game developed by Korean game maker Pentavision for the PlayStation Portable. It is a sequel to DJMax Online, a web-based music mixing game for Windows.
There are 5 modes where you play through 4 courses with increasing difficulty. Rookie DJing mode uses the 4 basic buttons, Pro DJing uses 6 and Master DJing uses 8 buttons.
Club DJing plays pre-made course of different songs. The player can play through 4 songs which are related based on either musical genre or theme of the songs.
Freestyle consists of all button modes and allow unlimited combos. In this mode, you can play in either of the three different button modes and play the songs without restrictions. Effectors can change the speed of the game and faders, among other things. There is also a special harder mode depending on the button mode you are in.
DJMax Portable largely features songs from DJMax Online. Soundtrack mostly consists of experimental electronic music but songs from more mainstream genres such as drum and bass and rhythm and blues are also featured through the course of the game.
Shortly after the release of DJMax Portable, the DJMax Portable International Version (DJMAX Portable, DMPi) was released. The way to tell if the game is the original or International is that the International Version is the small letter I in the upper right corner of the logo. It allows the ability to play in one of three languages (including English) and a few changes.
- The song Dreadnought has been replaced with River Flow (the reason being the way the Dreadnought music video portrays George W. Bush). Courses with Dreadnought have the song replaced with River Flow as well.
- Some songs have been taken out altogether.
- Some songs lyrics have been censored and some music videos have been censored as well which could potentially throw off players.
- The opening movie has been subtitled.
