E3 2007: Virtua Fighter 5 Hands-on

IGN take a jab at the Xbox 360 version.

"The gameplay is nearly identical to the PS3 version, which is to say that it is pretty darn good. Slight changes have been made for balancing. The 360 version of the game uses the arcade version C while the PS3 used the B version. We don't know the differences between them and SEGA wasn't talking. It wanted the hardcore gamers to discover those differences when the game releases rather than spill the beans to us. The Hori fighting controller being made specifically for the release of VF5 handles like a dream. It has a solid base, responsive joystick, and the six face buttons feel great. The only gripe we have is that the left and right bumper buttons are rather small and hard to reach quickly.

The slight improvements that we alluded to in the opening paragraph are more to do with bonus content and online play than the tweaks made to the balance. The 360 version will sport 75% more costumes to dress up your players with. To make it easier to collect all of these items, more money is given to you right off the bat in quest mode and it has been made slightly easier to obtain gold in the game. There will also be 60% more rival AI personas in quest mode. All of the personalities from the PS3 version will return, but now there will be better, more individualistic CPU AI."

you got the PS3 version beat for sure. No doubt about that. Great Job Sega and MS.
But, I'd rather play Tekken. Even if tekken comes to 360, you just cant beat the PS3 controller for fighting games.

@Thammer1: Wow, I agree with you. Something must be wrong.

I just can't imagine playing a fighting game on the 360 controller. FPS is one thing ... but fighting games using those big triggers ... no thanks.

THAMMER13481d ago

I thought this was the twilight zone.

75% more costumes.

AI: There will also be 60% more rival AI personas in quest mode. All of the personalities from the PS3 version will return, but now there will be better, more individualistic CPU AI."

Good stuff, Some times the wait pays off.

360 doesn't have blu-ray? Dvd9 isn't enough to do a game like VF5.
MS must have paid them money.
</sarcasm>

BLACKJACK VII3481d ago

WTF are you talking about ? You think VF5 is a larger file than a game like Mass Effect ? What ?!?

THE TERMINATOR3481d ago

Blu ray isnt needed for this type of game obviously. Its the Metal gears, FF13 and Killzone type games that require this storage thats why they are EXCLUSIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !

predator3481d ago

mass effect is bigger than those and that fits

BIadestarX3481d ago

And this is the reason why people love and hate exclusives...
Love because they get to play the game first than the other people that own the other console... and hate because for the most part they always get a better version...
