    Well considering that this competition was run by Gamepro, and keeping in mind the ability/intelligence of the average Gamepro reader... you were honestly expecting the others to win?

    Umm the arcade machine he won did not have seats. He won the unit that was at the event as far as I know because Yu Suzuki went up and signed it.

    Josh, all I can say is congratulations -- you're one lucky motherfucker!

    I just can't believe that a competition with this much up for grabs was held all the way out.... wait... where was it held again? What's even more painful is that it's too early to be an April Fool's joke!

    I'm insanely jealous!

    Supposedly he had to fight the final round on the PS2 using the controlpad! He used Lau and won by doing ppp, d+k, lol. An IGN combo.

    Definately congrats to Josh - I was there and watched Josh's mad skills with Lau as he pppd+k'd his way to victory.

    Hopefully they're not serious about giving him the test machine and will replace the game with at least a version B.

    Perhaps more interesting is that Che Chou (colleague of soulmachine) won the Fight Club drawing for the other arcade unit.

    James, looks like you guys won't be getting much work done once it comes in eh?

    Lol, i just hope he has the space for it in his home. I know I wouldn't, i'd probably end up selling it. Can anyone post a link to his story? Also Josh you have no excuse but to practice now!

    Don't worry

    He said that they'd be giving him version D??????

    Not the test machine

    Crew MD is formed, hehe, no quarter arcade VF playing, hehe.

    Re: Don't worry

    Who knows what version they're sending him. All I know is that the cabinet that the SEGA staffers were pointing at as the prize had that test version we in California know so very well running in it. I believe this was the cabinet signed by Yu Suzuki. Again, I will reiterate, I hope they will replace the game inside with at least version B, if not version C.

    However as I stated

    I physically TALKED to Josh, he was ASSURED by the CEO of Sega USA, he would be getting the newest version /versus/images/icons/wink.gif

    Re: However as I stated

    And this is the same Sega that promised me a new Virtua Fighter 2 machine after I won the VF Remix tournament back in 1997, but sent me one in a well used VF1 cabinet with a monitor that blitzed out in 3 months.

    Sorry man, even though as an attorney I know such a representation may be a legally binding statement, and while I have no reason to doubt they will send him the most recent version, the version that I physically played on, the version I saw, with my own eyes, Yu Suzuki leaning over the side of, I believe to sign, was the test version. Again, let me say a third time, merely that I hope they replace the inside hardware/GD-ROM/whatever with at least a version B.

    Honestly though, I think I'd rather have the test version, because after all, he's got a version C on his PS2.

    Heh, we had talked a bit about what character he should use when we met at Shang's place. When Josh first started playing VF4 his Lau was the strongest and I suggested that Lau would be a much better choice than his favorite character Sarah simply because if he got nervous he could just go into autopilot with Lau's combos and still crush an opponent that didn't really know how to block. I didn't even consider that they would be playing with joypads... /versus/images/icons/tongue.gif

    Congratulations Josh! Whens the VF party at your house?
