‘Virtua Fighter 5’ Coming to Xbox 360

SEGA has announced ‘Virtua Fighter 5’ will not be a Playstation 3 exclusive as previously thought, and will appear on Xbox 360 as well. But there’s a catch: while the Playstation 3 version will be available the week of February 20, the Xbox 360 version won’t hit stores until “Late Summer,” which we translate to August, at the earliest.

There’s no word out of SEGA hinting at exclusive features appearing on either version other than the obligatory Achievements on Xbox 360. Frankly, we expect the two versions to perform identical beyond that.

“SEGA delivers the most technical fighting game experience on Xbox 360 with this installment of the award-winning Virtua Fighter series,” said Scott A. Steinberg, Vice President Marketing, SEGA of America. “Virtua Fighter 5 takes full advantage of Xbox 360’s hardware with action-packed gameplay, customizable characters, stunning graphics and highly detailed 3D fighting environments.”
