Game deserves soooo much better .... the quality is undeniable.. anyone that plays it knows what I mean. I just don't get it.... it doesn't add up.

This game never had a hope in Hell of selling what with getting released on the PS3 so early in its lifetime with no online support and then later on the 360 with a virtually nonexistant Japanese userbase.

I imagine others is about 100K additional copies.

I think the series would appeal to more people if they focused on giving the series more personality and story. When it comes to gameplay its easily my favorite 3D fighter.

Where is the Europe numbers? Also depressing sales considering the quality of this game and the hype it got. I just hope the next XBox gets a VF game if they decide to make another one.

This didnt sell too badly, afterall, a hardcore game comes out MONTHS later and its also currently missing OTHERs sales, where fighters and this game also are quite popular.

Sold nicely in Japan (maybe too nicely for Sega who lost quite a few regular VF5 arcade players there), 30k for any game in JP is good. NA it did okay, and im guessing Others is AT LEAST 50k, most likely 100k though.

Lets not forget its an Arcade port too, so its pretty much free money

not only does this have online play it's based on the version C of the arcade which has minor adjustments to the gameplay. Plus there are downloadable packs on XBL to unlock extra content to customise your characters which Sega also charges for these! Lovely graphics and awesome hardcore gameplay.

really wish they had patched this for playstation. If not online then at least allow customised characters for transfer on a memory stick to take round ur friends house. Oh well.

You make a good point, although you ignore the online and the massive marketing campaign.

Awesome, i was sooooooooooooooooooooooo arguing how embarrassing it was for Sega to release this on 360, i am owned... OH WAIT, whats YOUR point?

As ive said, this is likely a small profit, Sega didnt dedicate a large team, and they have stable netcode to use for future titles

Considering the graphical prowess of this game, I'd say that 250k is far from breaking a profit for this one.

Woops i meant EU, fighters are popular there, so i still stick by 250k which i hope for them is at least a profit

Lol Oemenia, the 360 version of VF5 sold like, 10k in Japan.

Sucks that good games dont sell, at 170k with Japan sales. Fighters are still quite popular in Japan so it may be at around 250k. Regardless, i hope theyve at least managed a profit
