Dude VF is ny favourite fighting game...i have 5 on xbox but am waiting for a new one now to hit these consoles so i can play vf again on my favoured ps3 console

I've never really liked VF, it's just not as fluid as Tekken. It's better than a lot of other fighters though.

true but feels alot more realistic and alot more satifying when you know how to play it

It might help if there was a Virtua Fighter game out to play... The last one was out years ago!

They need to bring it to consoles. Arcades are almost dead in the west. For it to kick off again it needs to be brought to consoles. I'd buy it for sure. Most anti-noob fighting game out there and it doesn't get the attention it deserves.

Of course it doesn't, most people are nubs. I picked up VF5 for PS3 a couple months ago for around five dollars. Still looks gorgeous and plays very well.

DOA is also good for it's veriest reasons ;P

Probably most because the PS3 version of VF5 was a bad port so in effect there is no decent PS3 VF game. At the same time at the release of the game it's very likely that the larger portion of VFs fanbase was on PS3.

That, pretty much was why the game died out, imo.

lol dude, VF5 came out first on ps3, like a year ahead. it was my first ps3 game

the game had horrible load times.

the game series itself is deep but very slow and sorta boring, the ring outs kill it, for 3d fighters i stick to DOA and soulcalibur

DOA especially is very casual in regards to it's mechanics, Soul Caliber somewhat too. Whilst I'm a fan of SC, it's nice and flashy and all that. I have a profound respect for this type of game.

Also I didn't find it too slow, problem is perhaps that VF is SPECIFICALLY designed for an arcade stick, some of the inputs are kind of iffy for me on a PAD. Soul Caliber and Tekken however were specifically designed for 4 button Playstation controllers. Those games with their basically 4 button setups can be pretty nice for pad players.

Also, whilst VF5 came out, first on PS3. The defining problem was the fact that the PS3 version does NOT have online play, the 360 version, does.
