    This is either

    A) About the Japanese version only

    B) A "Special Edition" (so it won't count as a port)

    C) A 6 month exclusive thing (for the PS2 version)

    D) A false rumor

    E) The game wasn't exclusive to begin with

    Damn Morgan! We're taking tests now?[​IMG]
    As this point this is just rumor. I'm getting the PS2 version no matter what (March 19th right?) but if this turns out to be true it should certainly excite many X-box owners who want even more Sega.

    Good news if true. Owning both a PS2 and an Xbox, I was not going to buy the PS2 version, but will buy the Xbox version if it appears. JUST BE SURE TO MAKE IT 16x9 WITH 5.1 AUDIO!!!!!

    Right now I'm telling myself that I'll wait for the Xboxer, but I know I'll break down and get the PS2 version. I mean, if I can buy a game 5 months earlier for an extra $50, I'll probably do it. ...Hey, whaddya know - I already rationalized the purchase! [​IMG]

    A good friend of mine has a large printed card attached to his monitor with "Feeble Justification" written on it. Whenever he (or anyone on his team) needs to justify buying something they know they shouldn't, they get that card to wave about. It gets a lot of use [​IMG]
    Sounds like you need to borrow it [​IMG]

    I'm under the impression the US release of the PS2 version is pretty damn close to the Japanese one. So I don't think an Xbox version would be that different.

    As for the rumor, though, sounds kinda bogus to me.

    gamespot have posted this...

    "According the European Official Xbox Magazine Web site, Sega has confirmed that a version of Virtua Fighter 4 is in development for the Xbox. No specific details were mentioned about any possible enhancements or additions to the Xbox version of the game. When contacted for comment, a Sega of America representative told GameSpot that Sega has not made any announcements regarding the appearance Virtua Fighter 4 on other consoles and reaffirmed that it's an exclusive PlayStation 2 game."

    so who knows, i believe there's just as much chance of seeing JSRF on the PS2 and GC.

    All of these reports are coming off the same base report which quotes 'a source near Sega'. Let's wait for the press release, guys.
