Virtua Fighter 5 and Tekken 6 to be released on PS3 Only

The classic arcade martial arts fighting series, Virtua Fighter, will release its newest title, Virtua Fighter 5, only for the XBOX 360. This comes as a bit of a surprise as many other titles which have been released primarily on the Playstation in the past, such as the infamous Grand Theft Auto series, have decided to release their newest titles on both the XBOX 360 as well as the Playstation 3. Many game publishers are very afraid that sales for games for the new Playstation console will be low due to its price, just under $600. Hence, many companies have decided to produce games for both the Xbox 360 and the Playstation 3.

Regardless, the new Virtua Fighter game will feature over fifteen characters. It was also announced that gamers would be able to win money buy winning fights and then spend that money at virtual stores to purchase merchandise for their characters.

The ever popular Tekken Series has also announced that its latest fighting game, Tekken 6, will release only on the Playstation 3. The game is much anticipated by many and most are probably very disappointed that they will have to pay $600 plus the cost of the game to own the series. Many were hoping that, Tekken, like many of the other series who have launched titles on the Xbox 360, would release its newest title for multiple platforms. We will have to wait and see how sales for these games fare when they are launched later next year.
