Today's prettiest video: Virtua Fighter 5 PS3 battle footage


The most downloaded video on GameTrailers, up seven spots from yesterday, is footage from the upcoming Virtua Fighter 5 for PlayStation 3. Since we remember a time when the Virtua Fighters were nothing more than wooden marionettes with painted facial features, we must say they have come a long way in technological evolution.

The early water effects caught our eye first. Like its super-powered predecessors (3DO, anyone?), Sony's technological behemoth has shown it's capable of delivering some impressive visuals. What remains to be seen, at least in this example, is if developers have become accustomed to the Xbox 360 enough to match, or even surpass, said graphical prowess.

The video is, as per our modus operandi, embedded after the break.
