This is an official two-part thankyou message to all members of VFDC.
The Console Petition
Firstly, thank you to all members that assisted with the Console Petition. You'll be pleased to hear that VFDC, combined with kamaage's contribution from vfdojo.net, produced a petition exceeding 500 pages!
As a sign of thanks, kamaage enlisted Homestay Akira's help to provide some pointers to the community on how one can improve in VF. In what hopefully turns out to be an ongoing series, Chapter 1 in Homestay Akira's Virtua Education is titled The Road to Becoming Strong. Check it out!
Last, but not least, I want to personally thank everyone involved for the wonderful gift and donation sent to me recently. I...

The movie shown gives a taste of new costumes, items, and more importantly, changes to gameplay. We can only speculate at what these gameplay changes are given the brief glimpse the video affords.
Petition for VF5R on Console
A well known and respected VFer in Japan, Kamaage, was invited to meet with SEGA on the 28th January 2010. Leading up to this meeting, Kamaage approached VFDC with an opportunity to express our desire to have Virtua Fighter 5R ported to console directly to SEGA. He suggested we put together a document that explained a little about VFDC along with personalised messages from players in the community. If the document could reach 100 or so pages, then surely SEGA would be impressed, or so Kamaage thought!
After his meeting, Kamaage informed us that while the document was impressive, it simply wasn't enough. Kamaage now has another opportunity to pass our document to SEGA, but it must have more impact, at...
