Xbox 360

Sega was nice enough to send us a review copy of Virtua Fighter 5 on Friday, and I'm happy to show you guys the beginning of the Quest mode. Visually the game is 99% identical to the PS3 version, maybe a bit shaper looking but that's it. As for the playability the 360 pad isn't the best out there for precise controls, but using an arcade stick or simply "modding" it with a knife and sandpaper helps tremendously. This game is a definite must buy for fans of the genre who don't have the PS3 game or want a quite good online experience.
More videos will follow tonight or most likely tomorrow, this time encoded at 60 fps.

ive played both versions and the 360 version is visually identical to ps3 but cleaner (AA) so in return, the 360 version looks better. Otherwise, this version is more refined, with added content, and ofcourse online play, so it is the version to have. If you have both PS3 and 360, and allready own the PS3 version, i would trade it in for this version.

Looks like they increased the fight money you get the beginning of the game. That's pretty cool. They did a good job with the conversion too it looks like. Too bad I don't have a 360 anymore.

This game is awesome though, can't praise it enough, I'm kind of addicted to it at the moment.

The online part is amazingly good.

The demo of the game was fun. You know you can jump on them when they are on the ground laying there helplessly.

Visually it does look a bit better. There's a bgi difference though and it's that the AA in the Xbox 360 version is ages beyond the Ps3's. Very welcome for big TVs.

Sega is very skilled with both next-gen systems. All their inhouse games so far feel next-gen and push the graphics in one way or another. They'll work wonders in the coming years.

I was a huge fan of VF2 on the Saturn. I'm happy Sony didnt bankrupt them completely by crushing both the Saturn and the Dreamcast. It's sad that the people who helped annihilate Sega's console business (Playstation-fans) get to enjoy/disrespect their best efforts. Pearls to the... you know.

Yes I love Sega.

Sony didn't destroy Sega, Sega did that all themselves.

Well, us Sega fans all shared that temporary illusion, that warped reality of Sony single-handedly ruining Sega, so I can relate. :)

And I'm with Jolli on the can't praise enough bit. It really is so good I catch myself spontaniously laughing of joy. The offline quest mode and online vs stuff complement eachother so beautifully. You head offline to snazz up your outfit and then go back online to rise in online ranks. It's hysterically addictive.

Ironically I always figured the online would be standard laggy bolt on fare here, and more of a necessary evil to get this into people's homes than anything. On the contrary though, now I spend the most time online and about 30% in the quest mode and offline VS mode. Excellent job Sega, I applaud thee.

heh, I wonder why the hardcore VF fans in Japan don't seem to praise the game as much? I hear because it's not that big of an improvement over VF4: Final Tuned or something like that.

Anyway, hopefully I can get the game next week. I won't be able to get a stick just yet, so looks like I'm going to have to sand my D-pad. Now just to find a easy to follow guide.

Judging from what I played, the 360 version (just like a lot of other 360 games) once again suffers from lack of AF. The ps3 screenshots I've been seeing have AF (ground details stay sharp in the distance) but lack AA. Still looks good though and I'll take anti aliasing over AF anyday, but I was just wondering why a lot of 360 games do not have it

I bought the PS3 version of VF5 with the machine back in March of this year and loved it. I've also bought the updated Xbox 360 version and think it's even better, as it has more content and online gameplay. The background graphics definitely look better for the improved AA (except, oddly, on the Terrace stage) but the game consequently lacks the sharpness of the PS3 version; that's playing the game on the same Sony HDTV using HDMI @ 720p by the way. Also the game is not as enjoyable to play with the 360's awful, awful D-pad but the analogue stick controls seem to work well enough. Overall this is the better of the two games and I'll be trading in my PS3 copy in the near future as I have no reason to keep it now.

P.S. I haven't noticed any differences in the texture filtering between both versions, they look pretty much identical to me.
