    Interesting. I still have my disc copy, though, so I'll have to look at the trial to see how much is really changed.

    Just FYI, the official press release just dropped today. We don't like to cover things unless we're reallysure they're actually happening, for the most part. :)

    Good news, if we didn't have to wait a year for it to appear

    For me and the vast majority of players i personally know, fighting games have really been a bit of a fail on the 360 :(

    I dont know if its to do with how much gaming has moved on since fighting appeared but no one i know really likes them.

    Nice to see all the big names appearing tho :)

    I LOVE fighting games.........however, I've never been able to get into Virtua Fighter. One of the only franchises that have eluded me! I bought both 4 and 5 after they got such Rave reviews and were equally branded as technically the best fighting games ever made!!! But no matter how much I tried, I just never got it!!!!

    I will still get this though, even if for one final chance that I may actually experience that moment when it all comes together, and I finally 'get it!'
    Revenge is better than Christmas!

    I've been meaning to pick up the disc version for a while, but updates are nice, particularly years later. music

    Well new changes in Final Showdown are new character Jean Kujo, returning Taka Arashi from Virtua Fighter 3, new moves, new stages, new items, new animations, new sweat feature where you see characters sweating, side attack block so there is quite a lot in Final Showdown.

    Fecking awesome news!
    I loved the 4th one on the PS2 back in the day.

    Not really memorable characters in the series to me...but, the fighting is rather seamless and the graphics are easily Dead or Alive beautiful.

    Looking forward to this! =)

    Awesome news. VF's arguably the most balanced and technical fighter out there, so it makes sense to try to make it accessible to newcomers.

    Might even give me a reason to finish off VF5's quest mode.
