Possible news of an online patch for VF5 available at the price of 10.00 USD.
Screw that! We bought the same game as the 360's and they get online free and we have to pay $10???? I for one won't be buying, Tekken owns!
It should be free, but if it is $10 I guess that isn't too bad. After all, you can find the game used for around $30. If you paid full price for it then that does suck.
It should be free, but for 10 bucks, I will upgrade my beloved fighter so I can bash some heads in. Personally im sick of playing the computer. And I love Tekken, but VF5 is also a good game, and after seeing how well it sold on PS3 vs. the 360 version the devs woke up and saw that they were fools to not include online for the PS3 version. Thank god they came to their senses and realized that PS3 users deserve an online mode.
exactly... Virtua Fighter 5 is $40 Brand New for the PS3. You can easily find it for $20-30 used. So even w/ a download for online at $10 its still cheaper than the 360 version which will cost $60... It's still a hefty price to pay for an online mode, but overall the game w/ the download is still a very reasonable price to pay...
Feel bad for you guys that will have to pay $10 if you do pay it, but 360 owners have been having to pay for d/l'able content for like R6V and GRAW 2 that you guys are getting for free on release.
yea but we have had the game six months before you and a better looking version. Its cool that you guys got the extra stuff vegas and graw 2 are great games.
could someone translate the site? and 10 bucks one time is not bad. xbox live is 50 bucks a year...
Not that I really liked this game or anything, but doesn't it cost money to play online for the 360 version? Seeing as you have to pay for XBL? So it really is about the same if not cheaper for the PS3 to play online. But yes, this should have already been a feature of the game before it was released. and sticky doja: Share somma that sh!t with me mang :D
its about time ps3 started charging for content.
the actual article says nothing about money. it just says a online patch could come.
for server support ...
Thats not bad at all just think about it this way, would you rather not have it at all or pay $10 for it. Before people were complaining about how the 360 is getting it with online and everyone was mad about that, now they're giving it to us and everyone is mad because they are charging us $10. Its no be deal people just be happy we have it and that 360 fanboys can't talk crap anymore, plus now we have 2 PS3 fighting games to play online.
For those who bought it you got screwed. I say no one buy it because they did screw the ps3 although being as the xbox version looks like plastic barbie doll characters im not sure thats any better.
here is translation: With the notice of online of Virtua Fighter 5 for the Xbox 360 a heap eigenaren of Ps3-versie of the game will be discriminated against himself has felt. An interview of Total Videogames with of the makers of the game does the hope blaze up probable nevertheless. Tohru Murayama, assistant, have, as it happens, confirmed manager of Sega AM2 that online play can be brought by means of patch to Ps3-versie of Virtua Fighter 5. TVG: It "is something that AM2 can solve by means of patch?" Murayama: "undoubtedly". Absent lack of time and budget are of the online vogue in Ps3-versie were especially caused. It was best for the arcade version as soon as possible at porten to PS3. Developing an online mode fell through in the process.
I keep my tekken
Thats a friggin JOKE!
Blah...it's kind of late for a patch now. I still think it's late for a Tekken patch too, but I'd play tekken over VF any day
Sega is heading down hill they must be out of there damn mindz tekken is is way better and has more ppl online playing.
They do have more people online playing, but then again VF5 doesn't have online yet, so I guess that would be the reason why more people are online playing Tekken 5.
Tekken needs a dedicated server or something cause Its like impossible to get a match going the servers keep timing out.
my tekken server is acting up.until then im not paying for online again.fix myGODDAMN TEKKEN !!!!!!..then i'll consider the following.....BILL NYE THE SCIENCE GUY.Sorry couldnt help it.:)
What is it with Namco and Tekken charging for an online patch?
Yeas finally i can show my cool custome's with bryan lol. But 10$ is little too mutch i think,I mean the game cost's like 60$ so that's little too mutch.
you don't need dedicated server for a two player game, that's a total waste of resource.
Sega doesnt listen to customer needs. If they wanted Virtua Fighter to be online for PLAYSTATION 3 fans, it would have been online in the first place. Or at least an online mode would have been in development and announced for a patch a long time ago. Namco provided me with a great online experience in Tekken 5 so I will continue to neglect Virtua Fighter and Sega's lack of concern for PLAYSTATION 3 owners.
I mean us Oblivion owners for the 360 had to pay for some of the stuff PS3 owners got for free. No big deal. I'm just glad they are finally bringing it online. I had my VF5 since day one, and it's an awesome fighting game. But online play is just gonna make it even better.
I don't see any mention of a price at all. Where did the so-called $10 price tag come from?
lol lol that is just wrong i am not going to pay for $10 patch that support to be free
Warhawk has over shadowed all the great stuff available on the psStore today. *Tekken online* Tiger Woods Demo Puzzle Fighter Demo/Game Game Trailers HS Anime and more. Prob one of the best psStore updates since launch.
I might pick this up because the game is $40 and I should even wait longer so it drops in price again.
This would help out the PS3's fighter lineup a lot. The moment the 360 version's online play was anounced, the PS3 version became a joke, because offline fighters these days are coasters, particularly for games as unpopular as VF5. I should know, I bought both versions of VF4 on PS2, played the sh1t out of the computer for a short while, then never touched them again. My friends tried to learn VF at one point, but they were too lazy to stick with it and gave up.
i just downloaded the online mode for Tekken so thats all i need. i paid full price for VF5 the day it came out and now they wanna charge more? f*ck that
