Virtua Fighter 5: a primer

GameTrailers has released a video preview of Virtua Fighter 5. While the preview is for the PS3 version of the game, most of it should hold true for the 360 release. Specifically, it should give those unfamiliar with the game some idea of why hardcore fighting fans are nuts about it. One thing severely lacking from the PS3 version (as mentioned in the video) is that it has no form of online support whatsoever. We already knew it had no online vs. play, but the PS3 version even lacks something as basic as online leaderboards and the ability to trade saved videos. We can't imagine Microsoft would allow a 360 game to ship without at least having leaderboards, but we'll have to wait and see. Check out the video after the break.

This is the closest we've ever been to wanting a PS3. The wait for the 360 version of Virtua Fighter 5 is going to be tough. Anyone else eagerly anticipating this? Let's have a show of hands.

1. The "wanting" for a PS3 disappeared with the announcement that this was coming to the 360. With Crackdown, Mass Effect and others, there will at least be plenty to keep us entertained on the 360 until Virtua Fighter arrives.

And yes, our version will have online leaderboards and Live play -- I'll happily wait for those features.
