Okay, first off, let me say that this is not a troll thread. I have been into VF ever since VF4 and I have stuck with it until yesterday. It just seems to me that SEGA dont give a shit about their fans and still expect loyalty to their product.
I initially noticed this when they released a version B for PS3 and version C for Xbox, then promised to add online to the PS3 version and decided against it. Now they are releasing the game with fully compatible online mode for XBOX marketplace, the console that got Version C in the first place! What about the VF fans who own a PS3? Additionally, they are making people like us BEG for Final Showdown, and even with that ultra huge petition, there is still no news on a release. Its complete disrespect to their loyal followers.
Let’s compare the community of other fighting game franchises:
Street Fighter: We all know Ono is a troll, but he is always trying to communicate with the community, announced 3rd strike remake after fan demand and is always giving clues about new SF characters and modes. People also complained about Sagat in SF4 and what happened? Got seriously nerfed.
King of Fighters: Xii was a piece of garbage, people complained and now the complaints have been addressed with Xiii including fan favourites Mai and K’, and apparantly an amazing online mode and a story mode.
Mortal Kombat: Went off the rails with shit like MKvsDCU but now are listening to fans, going back to old school 2D and brutal fatalities. Great fan service here.
Tekken: Completely fucked up Tekken 4 but learned from their mistakes and listened to fans for Tekken 5. After major demand, also announced TTT2.
MvC3: Clearly listening to fans for advice with the inclusion of Dante, Deadpool and now seems to be Mike Huggar.
Virtua Fighter: Hasn’t done shit for their fans…
Now u can troll on this thread if u want, but i’d rather have a mature discussion. Maybe im wrong here and there is something im missing, so please let me know.
