Which characters are being played the most? How many people are playing the game online? Those are some of the questions I tried to address by collecting and summarizing data from the in-game PSN ladders. This article is divided into three parts: 1) Survey of the characters used; 2) Survey of the player accounts; and 3) Now that free PS+ period has ended, what is next?

For veterans of the VF series this is going down memory lane; and for a new generation of VF fans, a story worth telling. This is about the Tetsujins in the 1990s before the internet and the term "esports" was commonly known. Sega officially named Shinjuku Jacky, Kashiwa Jeffry, K.K. Yukikaze, Ikebukuro Sarah, Bunbunmaru, and Kyasao as Tetsujins. The latter 3 had a roundtable discussion with Den Faminico Gamer (in Japanese) about a week after the release of Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown (Virtua Fighter esports in Japan).

For players new to the Virtua Fighter series, the game may be overwhelming or feel very different from other games they have played. WireMan, who recently finished his A-to-Z of VF5US, has started a tutorial series for new players based on Virtua Fighter 4 Evolution in-game tutorials. Evolution's tutorials was the starting point for many VF fans and is still highly regarded by many.

Thanks to everyone who previously contributed to Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown Feedback thread. Much of that feedback has already been passed onto the development team, and obviously some things have already been implemented or fixed. Now, we have another opportunity to collate some feedback to the team so please review the current list and add what you think is missing! Also, SEGA have put out a survey inviting all player to submit additional feedback. There are some very specific questions about the netcode and your online experiences with lag, so be sure to tell them what you really think!
