Do you think Sega would finally throw us PS3 VF5 owners bone? No and probably not ever, according to Sega's Jay Boor. He told PS3 Fanboy, "at this time SEGA has no plans to release a patch for the PS3 version of Virtua Fighter 5."
Anyone still cares about this crappy game? EDIT: It's not about reviews, it's about Sales. I don't think Virutal Fighter sold well enough for Sega to concern itself with it. It didn't exactly top the charts for 360 either.
All of a sudden, this is considered crappy? - http://www.gamerankings.com...
It's a year old now, and if it isn't crappy, it sure as hell is old. Metacritic scores don't determine whether a game is good or not; it's all a matter of personal prefrence. Not what a bunch of journos say. If you want to buy a year old PS3 port, then so be it. But I would rather get some new games this year.
Waste it's time? VF5 may have been released awhile ago, but it is still the best next gen fighter out there.
Almost had it, if you'd had just finished your comment with "PS3" instead of the game itself.
Tekken:DR kills VF5! i traded VF5 in months ago. Tekken has more characters, backgrounds and game modes + online. and the load times for VF5 were too long, Tekken flys
no one cares about this game because sega made it.
I won't pretend to speak for everyone but everyone i know who owns a ps3 chose tekken dark resurrection over VF. Honestly they can keep the online and there is no love lost. I was never a fan of VF so i really could care less. Tekken and soul calibur are a couple of months away lets see how long they can hold their crown of best fighter available. Only reason they are the best is cus there is nothing to compare them to. I bet DOA is better than VF but i never played it though. haha also at power of green (my favourite xbot) despite 360 "massive" lead over ps3, ps3 virtua fighter still outsold it... so your saying ps3 VF didnt sell well is stupid... but again thats why you are my favourite xbot.
Why would sega patch the PS3 when VF5 is only hot in Japan and they don't care about online. Why do it for the 20 people that are going to be online everyday? They're working dead rising and lost planet for both the 360 and PS3.
not only PS3 american gamers online, but our japanese friends as well. It would have been great.
it would have been nice 10 months ago.... VF5 is played out
did anyone on the 360 even buy this game?
Not really. It only sold about 120,000 copies on the 360. I don't know. Fighters have always been one of my favorite genres, but I've never really liked Virtua Fighter. At least not since Tekken and Soul Blade on the PlayStation. My personal preference is that Soul Calibur is where it's at. I'm really looking forward to Soul Calibur 4.
I don't think anyone would expect a patch.
screw Virtua fighter 5 its all about tekken 6 and soul calibur 4
soul calibur is by far the master of fighting games but to me virtual fighter is a button masher. tekken is better than vf and i hate that mortal kombat is a rip off of virtual fighter.. the new gen mk sucks Soul calibur is amazing gameplay its not simple like the others thats still out its got way more of a flow. 3 was the best
Virtua Fighter 5 is thee best tactical fighter around. Soul Calibur comes in at a close second. Every other fighter is pretty much a button masher. 360 owners were definitely blessed with the included online version. I love the ongoing online tournaments. The competition is pretty tough and I always thought I was pretty good but I still haven't won one of the top online tournaments. Those damn asians are pretty good! Oh well, sucks for you ps3 guys. But I guess your used to getting the shaft.
If Sega wants to keep burning Sony and their customers than that's their business. Sega is nearly irrelevant anyway.
Sega isn't as awesome as they once were, but I don't think that irrelevant is the right word. For a company with so many awesome franchises they sure haven't been doing with them what they could be. I'm still trying to figure out what happened with that last Sonic title.
460,000 people that actually bothered with this.
Most of the "exclusive" titles Sony was flaunting as "only possible with the power of Cell/PS3" back in 2005...ended up being on 360 as well, and better than the PS3 version. VF5, DMC4, FNR3, Assassin's Creed...they all ended up biting Sony in the rear. :D
Watched Xplay yesterday and they had a BurnOut Paradise segment and the rep for BOP was so busy marketing the PS3 dude was fucing up his pre scripted speech. Morgan had to cut him off. I don't know if the devs are worried about sales on PS3 or if Sony has something to do with the odd marketing or maybe even having to live up to the claims they were talking about but I think BOP is slightly over hyped. He wasn't even going to mention it was a multi platform game untill Morgen stopped him.
that was funny, if anyone wants to see it here's the clip
what are u talking about?? he is in no way marketing the ps3.... he gets cut off after mentioning the achievement points
STREET FIGHTER 3: 3RD STRIKE the BEST but yeah vf5 is good
Love the game, however played it to death now and don't really care about it tbh. If this patch came earlier i wouldn't mind, but now Tekken 6 is getting closer
VF5 is a great and the best next-gen fighting so far but with the upcoming Street Fighter 4 as well as Soul Calibur 4, there will be no need to go back to it.
And you can keep your damn Dreamcast too!!! *Edit* Guess the sarcasm fell flat on it's face.
Not sure why they wouldn't have a patch for the PS3 since that were the sells were http://vgchartz.com/games/i... but It doesn't matter I got the game but I just can't get into it as a single player experiance unlike Doa,tekke, or soul caliber any other good fighting game it doesn't have a story mode and on top of that whats the point of these arcade recorded fighters? Sega know they should have had online from the gikko but sega its not what they used to be >_>
No financial incentives to work on the PS3 version... unless of course sega wants to release Sonic "the cartoon" on blu-ray.
A patch for a one year old game that no one plays anymore?no thanks I'm waiting on Tekken 6 and Soul Calibur 4 and others for the PS3:)
I would have bought this game if they did patch it for PS3, because online play or lack thereof was the only reason I don't have it. Guess I won't afterall, Tekken 5:DR satiates me and when SFIV comes out all will be forgotten anyway.
Geez...........maybe if Sony would have concentrated more on gaming along with their online PSN.........and not a force fed movie format, stories like this would not exist right now.
Why would they care the only people who bought it were Xbox owners. I bet if this game were a Blu-Ray movie named Virtua Figher 5 PS3 fans would buy it like crack. The devs are realy starting to take notice of the whole "PS3 owners never buy games" thing because they are starting to drop support and dropping games all together like Fronlines.
