Wow, people really care about superfluous customization items that do absolutely nothing and a glorified arcade mode over actual amazing gameplay? No, I'd rather not have the best fighting game ever made, it doesn't have enough worthless padding.
Yeah, I often amaze myself looking at what lengths I can reach to avoid futile purchases...
Jokes aside, I really don't like this "extra bucks for extra colors" philosophy adopted by almost all recent beat'em ups to milk out cash from customers. I acknowledge the undisputed superiority of VF5 in its field, it even managed to catch my attention as a complete 3D brawler n00b and made me spend countles hours on its 4EVO and 5 incarnations (even though I was an ardent fan of the Bloody Roar franchise too... bring it back, Konami!), but I just can't stand this fragmented policy for games and I'd rather wait for a "complete" edition (which will never come for VF5FS, but I'm generally speaking) than buy an "incomplete" product, even if the extras it's missing are cosmetics only.
So yeah, mine's only a personal justification and a critic to Sega's way of thinking. That said, however, the week's long and I might bite anyway since the game is really great... talk about willpower!
