Virtua Fighter 5 - interview and arcade video blowout

We talk to the developers and tour a Japanese arcade to find out just how hot VF5 really is

Virtua Fighter is more than a simple game to the Japanese - it's a phenomenon. Players gather at the Club Sega arcade in Akihabara, Tokyo to battle it out in massive tournaments - or just play for fun, as the best players gather at that spot. We were allowed to enter that domain with a camera, and we caught the 43 screens of Friday night VF5 action. We even interviewed Shinichiro Nagamine, a manager at the popular arcade, to find out the juiciest details about the competitions at the six-floor arcade. Watch and learn.

Next: we talk to the developers of the game to learn exactly what's up with Virtua Fighter 5 on the Xbox 360...
