It has been quite the long wait, but now the online enabled version of SEGA's golden child of fighters Virtua Fighter 5 has officially gone gold and is ready for its October 30th debut on the 360. SEGA of America announced the game's gold status today and made sure to note that the game will sport online versus play as well as vibration feedback, both something its older sibling on the PS3 didn't do. Snap! No doubt about it, Virtua Fighter 5 will satisfy the hunger fighter fans have been craving and at the same time further drain our ever decreasing bank account. Speaking of which, we wonder if banks give out loans for video game purchases. We'll have to check on that.
