According to a reputable poster on NeoGAF (who supposedly work for 1up/Ziff), Virtua Fighter 5 should have online according to the original post that read.
"Version C? Online? It looks like it's going to be a reality, no kidding here."
A forum for news? Probably not, but dang if it were true I think I smell a much heated debate
Awesome another forum post starting a rumor! Even the person who started the thread had no source either.
Then there is the whole saying from sega saying "Virtua Fighter 5 relies on key timing and lag would greatly effect the presentation."
It could be true, however since almost every title for the Xbox360 has some kind of Xbox live connection.
not in the least bit.
Half the news posted on this site is from forums just because its in the 360's favor doesn't mean its all of a sudden against the rules and is BS.
Is because it is either very pro for one system, or is detrimental for one system. This caters to both, and still has no evidence to back it up. I don't care if it is pro playstation 3, xbox 360, or wii. It is still not news.
if true i will get it, if not i will rent it, simple as
But i don`t see a problem of releasing patch for ps3 version, like Namco did with Tekken 5:DR. =)
Anyway, good news, if x360 gets online, same goes for ps3. :)
Really good news for gamers! =]
Look the 360 version more closely matches the original PS3 Shots of the spiky haired dude.
good for you, but probably a patch commin for the PS3. Also, who gives a damn, we're gettin Tekken DR online!!!!!
Tekken craps all over VF anyways.
it wont happen, unless the neo gaf member was able to persuade sega to implement online and drop the frame rate it wont happen.
never been a VF 5 fan, so i wont be getting this for the 360 either....but now that tekken dr is going online im happier than ever :)
Why did they released this game for the PS3 first? The PS3 would sell even less than what it did. People would pick the one with online... which happends to be the xbox 360 version.
Yet another example of 3rd party multiplatform being supeior on the xbox 360. So, much of a $600 box...
This got approved. Maybe the 15 reports did nothing. Sadly the people who accepted it, are always ones that accept this garbage.
Why even report anymore, it will be approved if it is negative news.
another game being done better than 360...... so, this month is R6 vegas, darkness and VF5. I have 360, but i was really thinking PS3 would show superiority, same way XBOX made PS2 games look like crap, but I guess not.
But it is funny to hear the fanboys saying how they dont care because they are getting tekken online. hahaha....
Superior games on a superior console, it is not surprising.
^ Desperate fanboys make me laugh. I bet you feel reassured after spreading your negativity and waste of life all over articles not in favour of the PS3, right? Keep doing that, if it helps you think the 360 is better =)
As for this news, I can see VF5 being on Live, the only problem is the developers being against the slight "lag time" of online fights. The source itself is really bad, but as for the possibility, I can see it (assuming they tweak the fighting engine for online).
I wonder why you must so defensively regard this as an article "not in favour of PS3" when it is really just an article in favour of Xbox360?
Be that as it may, it is still not in favour of the PS3. Besides, you clearly felt it necessary to bring up its inferiority, I'm simply calling you out on it.
Fanboys, the idiocy they possess I cannot even fathom.
Well for a while I have been watching the PS3 version and it looks sweet as but with no online play I really dont see the point.
However if the 360 version gets online play along with what I read it being graphically better then oh boy I will definently get this!
The 360 wont get online. The version C they speak of is an online version, but for the Japanese arcades where connections are at 100mb/sec. Fast enough so that lag is not even noticeable.
The connections here in the states are at 10mb/sec max, and those place that do faster are usually big corps where the bandwidth is shared by many people. The 360 will get a few extra due to Version B being their base and that is all.
Sega already said they do not want to comprise the quality of the game just for online play
How are you so sure dude? Are you working on VF5?
I have more believe in someone from 1up/Ziff with inside info than you, a gamer sitting @ home only wishing his PS3 VF5 version doesn't get pwned by 360 with online
if the 360 version has online, instead of sony boys being mad at sony for this game not having online, they'll be mad a sega for not wanting to front the bill for the servers to run this game on the PS3!!
if this is true i will buy this game .if its not true i wont get it .needs online play to be an true next gen fighter on the 360................
Bladestar and themart, you two are very sad people. I dont get how you people keep going on rumors when they have clearly been debunked. They already said no online play.
that the chances of this happening is rather slim. This, like Ps3 rumors (many proven false), is still just a rumor. Thus, should be treated as such. I, infact, HOPE this is true. VF5 is a solid fighter. And as an owner of both consoles, (And I now I will get ALOT of disagrees with my next comment) I want BOTH systems to grow. And an online VF5 would be welcomed. But, I don't see this happening. IF it does however, you can bet this WILL go to the PS3 aswell. There is NO WAY the PS3 won't get it. Maybe later than the 360 version. But it will happen none the less. So for all gamers here. Pray this does happen, cause this will profit both sides.
Everyone is more than welcome to disagree with me as always, but please be respectful as I have always been respect to all my gaming brothers. PS3/360 enthusiasts alike. :)
