Yes, it's used very much like Versus. However! As Tokyo Nagoya pointed out, バーサス is usable sometimes, too. Plus, occasionally クロス (that is, "X", usually a sign of collaboration) will be used like "Versus" depending on the context. For example, it's "Capcom vs. SNK" in both Japan and the US, but it's "Street Fighter X Tekken" in both territories.


Here in Japan these days, I actually see and hear 「[vs.]{バーサス}」 as often as or even more often than 「[対]{たい}」. 「対」 would tend to suggest a physical fight or conflict, so we tend not to use it in other contexts.


You answered your own question, pretty much. 対 is used more or less exactly like vs. is in English.
