Gameplay video of Virtua Tennis 3

Gameplay video of Virtua Tennis 3

Still from the Japan Expo, here is a gameplay video of Virtua Tennis 3 (X360 version), with two human opponents. I also took the time to give it a try, and really liked what I played. Can't wait for a Marketplace demo !

Yep, this should soon be ranked number one.

don't really like how fast they dive to the floor to reach for a ball though :/
Commented on 2006-07-09 18:03:51
looks ok. hmm but also too crazy, unrealistic... the jumps ..
top spin is better, i think!
Commented on 2006-07-09 18:06:30
It'll be a more Arcadey experience.
Horses for courses I guess.
Commented on 2006-07-09 18:25:38
is it 360 version? or Arcade or PS3?
Commented on 2006-07-09 18:27:42
X360.
Commented on 2006-07-09 18:28:33
Was this running on a 360 or on the arcade/Lindberg stuff?

I did not watch the bigger version but this did seem to lack some of the shadowing techniques in some of the recent PR shots.

EDIT: Thanks snoopers! Seems both the question and the answer beat my response haha!

Btw, I am loving the streaming video!

Looks way better than Top Spin, love the VT series.

And yea the streaming was a brilliant idea. :)

Pretty sure the original two Virtua Tennis games on Dreamcast were more fun than Top Spin ever has been
Not to mention the insane amount of unlockables that Virtua Tennis had that was missing in the Top Spin series
Mini games were also always a blast
Also lets not forget the fact the music in Virtua Tennis trounces the music in Top Spin

Goodbye Topspin. Your reign was short but beautiful. They better comback with Topspin 3!

Can't be fun being a camera man in Virtua Tennis 3 (beta), sitting still filming one spot all the time.

Seems like this game will be better than top spin, and just to say this game will be better than top spin, video looks nice too bad theres no sound.

Thanks for the vid!

Seems to be the E3 version, there's still no self-shadowing (as in the PS3 version). At E3 I was wondering about that, because a Sumo dev told me the 360 version was noticeably longer in development than the PS3 version (whereas it looked as if it was the other way around).

Which strikes me as odd because tasks like self-shadowing should be easier to do on the 360 than the PS3 (Xenos has a magnitude better dynamic branching and has been confirmed by multi-platform devs). It could be that Top Spin is being developed with Lindberg (6800GT) in mind so re-doing the effects on the 360 would take too much time and effort.

Well... this will be the first ever tennis game I purchase.

Oh my god the rally to that first deuce was incredible! :D

Looks way more better than Top Spin.. more ''fluid''..

Shame might not be out this year.
Commented on 2006-07-09 22:07:39
very unrealistic top spin 2 is better just try out the demo

Surely the graphics data would be fairly simple to shift over to RSX though. (edit:- i really need to start reading to the end of your posts lol)

I did and i found it very boring, this in my eyes is what sets Japanese games a part from Western games, not everything has to be realistic for it to be fun.

In fact i would say its more the oppisite.

i found from playing Top Spin 2 and seeing footage of virtua tennis the moves arent very fluid.

Maybe its because i've been forced to watch wimbledon for what feels like a lifetime these past 2 weeks but comparing it to the real thing it doesnt seem to do it justice, not that i like tennis, i hate it to be quite honest, but the animations could have been merged together better.
Commented on 2006-07-09 23:13:02
Thanks for videos, snooper.

edit: oh, streaming works nicely, like the 16/9 ratio aspect
Commented on 2006-07-09 23:21:21
Don't worry folks we are getting closer as processing power continues to grow we'll be able to get more out of a game's in terms of realistic animation combined with awesome graphics as we go on :)

With the next consoles after the ps3 and 360. We'll have so much processing power that we'll likely be able to really push the envelope graphically while maintaining a very advanced form of animation system.
Commented on 2006-07-10 02:09:13
wow look great on 360 i hop its look the same on ps3
Commented on 2006-07-10 02:51:38
WOW im impressed, i love the animation and the graphics. This game is gonna rock.
