Sega shared two Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown surveys asking for people’s feedback. Each one is targeting a different group of people. One survey is for people who own the game and potentially played it. Which could be a large group, seeing as it launched as a free PlayStation Plus title and will remain so until August 2, 2021. The other is for people who don’t own and haven’t played the fighter. The Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown netcode is the subject of quite a few questions in one.
The first Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown survey kicks off by asking about demographics, platforms owned, and your general likes and dislikes when it comes to genres. It asks about fighting game series you’re familiar with and if you played entries in them. Then, it asks about your familiarity with past Virtua Fighter games. From there, it starts talking about this particular game. It asks how you heard about it, if you paid for it or got it with PlayStation Plus, and if you got the DLC. It also asked why you decided to get the game. After that, it asks how long you’ve played, if you’ll play more, and which character you used most.
More importantly, the survey for people who own and played it talked about Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown netcode. In its final questions, it asks if you know which sort it uses. Then, asks if you prefer delay-based or rollback netcode. It also asked if people experienced lag when playing the game.
As for the Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown survey for people who didn’t get the game, it’s very similar. Except after you explain your familiarity with the series, it starts asking why you weren’t interested in and didn’t get the game. It also asked people to choose which character they think they would like best if they did play. It also closes things out by asking the same sorts of questions about Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown netcode and how important rollback and delay-based netcode is to the person.
Virtua Fighter 5 Ultimate Showdown is available for the PlayStation 4. It is free for PlayStation Plus members until August 2, 2021.
