    Default Virtua Fighter 5 heads to X360

    Virtua Fighter 5 heads to the xbox 360 in late summer 2007.

    So, uh, who's next, MGS4?

    So another PS3 "exclusive" doesn't seem to be so "exclusive".

    The MGS4 rumor last week was that Konami wasn't giving Kojima a choice in the matter. They were insisting that a 360 version would be necessary for the US and European markets. I think this is a no-brainer.

    Anyway, this is all good news. I'm glad VF5 is hitting the 360...it looks incredible.

    This is great news for 360 fans. When I heard this I was overjoyed. I have yet to encounter VF5 in the arcades and am curious how it holds up to its predecessors.

    There's still a lot of interesting content coming for PS3. It may be easy to write the system off now, but we all may be singing a different tune in a year. Never ever count Sony out. They've taken on better systems and won.

    I truly hope Sony gives me at least one reason to spend $700 (system, game, HDMI cable). As of now I'm not convinced. The continual bleeding of exclusive content doesn't help their case.

    This is truly a suprise. Sega clearly needs the cash--and sees the growing American 360 install base. But this still leaves just two PS3 exclusives (MGS4 and FFXIII) to convince me to fork over $700 bucks. That sure isn't a lot. They need some pre God of War III hype just about now. I sure wouldn't be surpised to hear an announcement for something from Sony just to counter-act the amount of exclusives their losing. In the long run, it does look like MGS is going to jump ship too.

    I agree the PS3 still has a long way to go before I count it out. But I think 3DO owners were saying the same thing circa 1995. At some point--not now, not January or Feburary---that price is going to KILL them.

    If us---the hardest of the hardcore---aren't convinced its worth it how are they going to convince to general public outside of brand name alone? Early adopters almost always pave the way. And we're currently paving a future for the Wii60.

    I think it has more to do with the installed base of 360. There simply aren't enough PS3's out there.

    For the record Sega-Sammy aren't hurting for cash.

    I never said they were "hurting for cash." Any time a company can make an extra buck--they do it. With that being said, you're right...Sammy makes enough pachinko machines to fill every crater on the moon.

    Sorry, when someone says "Sega clearly needs the cash" to me it implies that they don't have much or any. For years Sega was in the red and a lot of folks still don't seem to realize they're sitting on tons of dough.

    Sorry I misinterpreted your post.

    The PS3 version is mine in Feb., but I'm quite happy that Sega decided to port it over.

    More people playing Virtua Fighter 5 = Good
    More money for Sega = Good
