Virtua Fighter 5 Now Available for Download on Xbox Live Marketplace

Virtua Fighter 5 is now available for download on Xbox Live Marketplace in the ON DEMAND section.  It is priced at $19.99. 

It is an amazing game and is well worth the price, for sure.  Sure you may find a used copy here or there for a bit cheaper, but also consider that you will have this game at your fingertips right on your hard-drive, so there is no need to get off your couch to change the disc. That's got to be worth a few bucks right there!

It also has online code which is pretty good as well.  If memory serves, this was one of the first fighting games to actually have decent online play.

Head here for the Marketplace page for this game. Thanks to IMNEXTONLINE for the tip!

IPW Topic of the Week: Should The Conduct of Stream Commentators and Tourney Players Be More Professional? 

Images courtesy of protocolsnow.comSeasons Beatings 5: Redemption was an amazing tournaments with many epic moments.  However, there were some incidents regarding conduct, both from official stream commentary and from players in the tournament, which have stirred up debate in the fighting game community.

So, what do you think it is in the best interests of the community for our stream commentators to act more professional, like a sports broadcast?  Do you think it's in the best interests that players act more professional and be more "humble?".  Do you think it's in the community's best interests that things remain as they are, where commentators and players can say what they wish "in the moment", regardless of how it will come across to the thousands of viewers at home? Or is there some in spot in between that you think we should strive to achieve?

What is the correct balance of professionalism and hype?

Thanks to Spiron for an excellent topic! Have an idea for a future topic? Hit the thread in the IPW Forum and let us know! If you missed last week's topic, "When will Super Street Fighter 4 be Dethroned?", check it out here!

Top Smash Players Banned from MLG due to Fixed Matches

MLG released a statement today saying they are banning two top Smash players -- Mew2King and ADHD -- from the MLG Dallas  finals due to a fixed match. The MLG rules state that players may not engage in “intentional Forfeiting or conspiring to manipulate Rankings or Brackets". Apparently some shady business went down at MLG D.C., and after an investigation, MLG decided to ban the two players from the competition. Read more about it by clicking here.

Now, we don't typically ever post about Smash Bros. on iPlayWinner, but this is relevant to the fighting game scene as a whole. Believe it or not, fixing and throwing matches is a very common occurrence in tournament play, unfortunately.
