Virtua Fighter 5R getting classic SEGA console items

Even though SEGA is preparing for the upcoming Virtua Fighter 5 Final Showdown, does not mean it will stop adding stuff to Virtua Fighter 5R. SEGA updated VF5R this month, with classic SEGA consoles.

The image above shows the prices of the consoles, which can be used on your characters back. The prices for the in game items are the same price as the real consoles when they launched in Japan. Of course, you buy the consoles with in-game currency.  Make Akira look like Segata, with a Saturn on his back? Brilliant!

    SEGA should show their old hardware even more love. I can't play 5R but hearing about this and seeing how they put the Saturn in AP just puts a smile on my face.

    The Saturn should've been white then?

    Anyway it would've been more worth it if it was just the Saturn given the relationship the franchise has with the console.

    Dreamcast didn't even get VF4 and Mega Drive got butchered ports.

    Why should it be white?

    Dreamcast got Virtua Fighter 3TB. Regardless of it not 'stacking up' to other games at the time, it was still fun.

    Dreamcast got VF3tb. And the MegaDrive's VF2 was pretty good, albeit 2D.

    So yeah, all these consoles are related.

    All three are based on the original release models. The Saturn seen above is HST-0001, the white Saturn you speak of is HST-0014 and released two years later.
