Sega released these four images of Virtua Fighter 5, to be released next month on Playstation 3 (next week in the US). The Xbox 360 version is still many months away, so these screenshots are probably from the PS3 version.
Can anybody tell me how a game with these mediocore screenshots from the PS3 can get a mark like 9.5? Is it because a Japanese mag has reviewed it and love Playstation to death? Even DOA3 looks better then this on the original XBOX... My god. I hope the 360 version will be better looking then this. Even the environments, everything. I was expecting a whole lot more when I heard the first review mark
This months EGM (the one with people throwing tomatoes at the PS3) gave it some 9.5's and one guy gave it a 10. It must be the gameplay because the graphics arent mindblowing or anything. But we all know the PS3 got the arcade version, and the 360 gets the better version which was optimized for the 360, the online play should be killer too.
you used to just post xbox 360 news. do you now post ps3 news just so you can guarentee getting the first comment in? ...good grief...
You guys really have no life do you. Your guys are the reason, why xbox gamers have such a badname. You guys are the reason why xboxLive is known to be for white trash users, with no class whatsoever. Please, do us all a favor, and stop gaming. Just because you guys have no life outside of 360, doesnt mean you have to act like idiots. All you have to do is admit that your both losers, and cant get any girls in real life, therefore are filled with low self-esteem. Work on it guys, you have that in you, i know you do.
Who are you to tell them what to do?
Sometimes TheMart might be flaming a little too much and overzealous but usually he has good info in regards to the 360. I personally (strongly) dislike Sony and don't mind hearing Sony bashing. Critiquing every game negatively for the PS3 is another thing though. All said, most people are going to react favorably to the games on either system. If the 360 has better graphics, then it validates my decision to purchase one. Other than the fact I dislike Sony, they have no games which truly stand out in graphics or online game play. TheMart might be beating the drum a little too hard talking about the merits of one version over another but he is honest for the most part. Word of advice to all posters: lets bring a little more positivity to the table. Everyone has preconceived views of what looks better or not. Seeing is believing for most people. It must be said that Virtua Figher 4 has never been known for its graphics. If the 360 version looks better, thats good. The gameplay is where the pudding is.
Listen Jin, you can feel bad about the PS3, but don't bash others for it. It's the truth about these pics. Go watch them and say they are great please! Here are some reactions on the site with these screenshots. They're not mine, remember!!! Oh yeah my girl watches TV, I play games, all in the same room that's when you have multiple TV's dude...

I was thinking the same thing. These games should look real by now considering the limited amount of on-screen action. I am guessing the animation should be top notch considering the graphics arent. Quote - Reply omegaheat Since 425 Days 2007-02-16 23:48:39 Okay, I know that graphics don't make the game. It's become a cliche' for us, but these shots are not impressive. There is no complex open world to explore and there are only two players at the most on screen at once. So the graphics become a big factor when were talking about a fighting game. To add insult to injury, it doesn't even have online multiplayer versus. This was Sega's chance to outdo the aged Dead or Alive4, but they blew it. It still looks like the enviroments aren't interactive and confined to a box with ringouts.

Quote - Reply DubC GT : BboyDubC Since 499 Days 2007-02-17 00:51:38 The game just looks terrible in every screen shot released. In motion though, it just looks sick. This is a game that really doesn't transfer well to screens. Only screens I've seen that look decent are ones taken of someone playing the game on a tv.

Jizz Kazama a guy who thinks he's a video game character. Now thats sad.
Umm. dude, um, isnt your name "haloalldayo"? or whatever? is that a video game? um, er, kettle calling the pot black? moron!
He says he has a girl and doesn't sit in a basement, for fuk sake did anyone read that last post of his in this thread, he's basically taking quotes from articles from like a month ago, this guy is a big loser with no life and he's a virgin well that explains it, i hear the red light district is good in Amsterdamm, you should go there Marty, oh wait ur so boring i'm guessing they ask for like 4oo euroes, you could buy a PS3 with that, oh decisions, decisions haha loser.
Its not the same thing R-Tard. my name is Haloalldaylo which means I play Halo all day long. now if my screen name was Master Chief then it'd be the same thing.
I was playing Ninja Gaiden Black last night on my 360 upscaled to 720 and I sh*t you not that old Xbox game looks better then this. What's reeeeeaaaally goin on?
Whats up with all the negative guys?? this game looks nextgen enough. If it was shown for the 360 every fanatic must claim it looks amazing and will looks worse on PS3. I like the way the MART said: " these screenshots are problebly from the PS3 version". Yeah the one with a 9.5 rating on EGM!! Not good enough...FANATICS...
The one with a 9.0 average and going down fast? It's just one of those sub-par games that come and go... Nothing special! A rental for me. ;-) http://www.gamerankings.com...
No, No, No -those pics are crap, I can personaly tell you xbox 1 had better graphics than that. I think these are some old early build pics, because some of the early reviews like EGM said the game looked great on PS3....so I'm sure these are old pic's plus its from an xbox site, so I'm skeptical....hell even the site didn't sound sure if they were actually PS3 VF5 pics, for all we know they could be early pics of the upcoming 360 release. ????
Games look truly better in motion, but VF5 has some plastic like models to be honest. Yet it's still kinda early to judge, we need to play it to do that. If you ask me Tekken 6 doesn't look that great either, for a fighting game FNR3 delivers the best in visuals, but we need to think of gameplay too sometimes. If you want graphics, wait for next Mortal Kombat utilizing Unreal Engine 3. But who guarantees the gameplay wont be bad? After seeing Armageddon and all I dont have much hope. Well I kinda like realistic fighting games now, and that's Fight Night.
Saw VF5 in action and can't say I was impressed by the graphics. Environments are inferior to DOA4 and character models are too plasticky. Still, I will be getting it when it is released for 360. I'm sure the gameplay will be > DOA.
This is the king of controls and game play in its previous versions, if only on-line play were included might be a real game. VF4 made me a convert and online play should not be an option but mandatory, this better come to xbox360 version or Sega im sorry, but its Tekken time.
there is nothing wrong with this game graphically. The most import thing is that it plays well, and from what reviewers have been saying, it does. VF5 looks good from previous screen shots. Those above don't look the best, I seen better. I'll judge when it can be seen in action. Anyway, Sega has said repeatedly that there will be no online verses for either version. Now Sega, get to work on Daytona 3.
the vf series is the best technical fighter out there.it has more respect than DOA.DOA has graphics.but it's gameplay is ,although fun, SHALLOW.because tommie concentrates more on boobs and graphics than solid gameplay.what's the point in wearing a nice outfit to a fight,if you are not an expert in fighting?you are going to get beat.you might look good,but you're going to get your butt kicked every time. FLASH will never win out over SUBSTANCE.and no offense to ghetto people,but the only exception is if you're from the ghetto.and don't know anything about REAL MUSIC,REAL SINGERS,REAL ACTORS AND SO ON.
r&b is where it's at. real singers. because we all know that if you lined up people from rock, pop, country, ect, and made them "sing" live, the r&b singers would sound the best. and fyi, if you start a sentence with no offense, you already know you're being offensive to somebody.
Can now stop saying the PS3 only has 1 great game. Here's another: http://www.gamerankings.com... And a lot more are coming out this year.
I've never played Virtua Fighter yet i love Tekken Which one's better?
I like SoulCalibour more, but Defjam is tha king :) of course the new Defjam Icon will be mediocre, because of his brand new super slow lame without any complex combos gameplay... btw. Mart should be banned from the internet, the world isn't ready for such a superhero ;)
better than VF. But I guess you can tell by my name. Although i never use Jin, I jut like the name. Hworang, Nina Williams, Asuka, Brian Fury, Steve Fox. Thats my team. BRING IT.
