1200 points?
Fuck them. This is a 800 points game and not a nickel (or point) over. I think Sega is imagining some gigantic cult following for this game that doesn't exist.

Yipes, just saw the 400 point jump. That kills it for me :(

What's wrong with you two? Well maybe you, Hydro, just don't have the funds for it which I understand. But really Friend of Sonic? $15 for the best version of Virtual On is too much? I mean you get multiplayer and color edit as well as all of the different character additions seems like a fine price to pay. Game went for $50 when it came out on Dreamcast which is technically only last generation.

Maybe you just suck at VO and it's only worth $10 to you. Like I expect Marvel Vs. Capcom 2 to be $15 as well.





Anyway. I'm still working with getting my perfect controls. What I have now is partly inspired by Armored Core 4.

Left and Right Triggers for Left and Right Turbo respectfully.
Left and Right Bumpers both for Center Weapon
X and B for Left and Right Weapon respectfully.
Y for Jump Cancel and A for Jump
Left and Right Click for Special
Right Stick for turning.
Left stick for forward, back, and strafing left and right.

Buy everything! QUICK!

I would suggest that for many people (myself included) it has more to do with the arbitrary 400 point bump versus not being able to scrounge up an extra five dollars. Everytime someone buys a game at 1200 points, it sends an unfortunate message that it is okay to charge that much for a game.

I'll be the first to admit that I've done it twice with Castle Crashers and Street Fighter HD. However, I'd be willing to bet that both of those games were in development for considerably longer and cost significantly more money to create than this arcade port of VOOT.

As many of you know, black ops 2 is plaid with bugs, lag etc which many people have been suffering including me.

Game has been announced for 1200 for a while, though. This wasn't a "bait and switch".

I was surprised to see 5k+ people on the leaderboard this morning, when the game had only been out 2 or 3 hours. VOOT has a pretty dang strong following. I think a good amount of Japanese players made a Watari-dash to pick the game up ^_^

I was more surprised Outrun was 800pts, than I was surprised this was 1200, though. I guess games that still feel this "fresh" don't phase me being that price point. And if this extra 5 bucks helps them decide to release actual TWIN STICKS for the 360, then it is insanely 100% fine with me.

Man, this is the first time I've got to play VOOT against non-family-and-friends in such a long time... I love getting to see how really high-caliber players are able to fight. It really forces you to learn all your moves and EXACTLY when to use them!

Oh, and, did previous ports of VO have color edit? Or is this a feature derived from VO4 (Virtual On FORCE) or something? I'm pretty sure I don't remember it being in the DC port, and I can't remember if it was in MARS or not...

I got it, but it was was a no brainer for me. I never got to play Voot with other people and now I can. Plus I didn't get out run since I have outrun2 on the original xbox that plays fine on my 360. My Voot DC disk doesn't work in my 360 so I had no problem buying the game at 1200 points.

Just like Rez, just like MvC2 and Ikaruga. I'll pay the cash to get my games all on one console if I like the game enough.

Demo played nicely and its looking great. Can't quite pull the trigger yet though, maybe a rainy day purchase. I have Marz on PS2, I don't even think I played it really.

Maybe you just suck at being a CAG ;). Outrun 800, this port 1200. I don't really like supporting 1200 point games, even if this one has added Live multiplayer. As far as I know, the new characters in 5.66 are just variants on existing ones. Correct me if I'm wrong on that one. Also, color edit on its own is not a reason to purchase something-- correct me if I'm wrong on that one also.

I do like that Sega remembers this series. I'd love to support it if I could trust them to make a new one that does justice to the series, considering the Virtual On Marz was a complete dead fetus abortion.

It's decent from what I played. I do not know how I played this on DC without the 2nd joystick. I want to buy it, but I don't see myself playing it a awful lot. The old school feel is great, and it's old but the graphics are really clean.
It really feels like Wartech: Senko no Ronde with a closer camera.

For me it's just that the 1200 point difference means I'm pretty much using my whole points card on that game. I really miss the days of 400 point games, I know you can't really expect to get Super Contra and Vitrual On for the same price but the cheaper the game is, the faster I'll buy it or likely buy on impulse.


I paid 1200 points for Hd Remix and don't regret it for a minute. Really wish I didn't for Castle Crashers since I think it's terrible, but eventually I'll get Virtual On. I really want that Fallout 3 DLC and if I buy VO now I won't have enough for it next week.

I picked this up even though I agree that 1200 is pushing it a little but IMHO, if the release is good, and your a Sega fan, buying these arcady games like Outrun, VO, hopefully will encourage Sega to release more arcade/Dreamcast and maybe even Saturn games (probably not on XBLA, but maybe VC) -- if Dreamcaset Daytona was released, but with better controls, that'd be awesome. Imagine if they released some kind of Panzer Dragoon trilogy.
