Sega press release:


SAN FRANCISCO & LONDON (August 17th, 2010) –SEGA® of America, Inc. and SEGA® Europe Ltd. are thrilled to announce that the critically acclaimed Virtua TennisTM series is in development for PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, featuring full PlayStation®Move compatibility and 3D technology. Developed in Japan by the original Virtua Tennis Team, Virtua Tennis 4, releasing in 2011, promises a more immersive, true to life tennis experience than ever before.

Virtua Tennis 4 with the PlayStation Move is more than just hitting the ball; it’s about the angle of the racquet, the spin and speed of the ball and the power of the shot. The advanced motion sensors of PlayStation Move precisely track both the fast and subtle movements of the controller allowing for pinpoint accurate shots as players improve their racquet skills. Virtua Tennis 4 will also support 3D technology delivering unprecedented realism to the tennis experience, bringing you closer than ever to being out on the court.

“Virtua Tennis 4 is a fantastic example of how our 3rd Party partners are seeing the potential not just in PlayStation Move, but also 3D,” said Simon Rutter, Senior Vice President, Sales & Marketing at SCEE. “The combination of both Move and 3D offers an entirely new gaming experience and one that has the potential to completely change how people interact with their entertainment. Virtua Tennis 4 shows how this technology can be implemented and we are very excited to be working with SEGA on this.”

“We have always strived to provide a tennis experience that is both true to the sport and great fun to play, and we are continuing to work with Sony to make this happen”, commented Gary Knight, Senior Vice President of Marketing at SEGA Europe and SEGA America. “With Virtua Tennis 4 being developed for PlayStation Move and featuring 3D technology, the boundaries of realism in sports video games are being pushed even further”.

With a host of additional features and the full player line-up to be revealed in the coming months, Virtua Tennis 4 is slated for release in 2011 and will be available on PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system.

  • Megido
    Megido Arizona Sunshine is the closest thing i've played to a real game so far, and it's like 3.5 hours long. Hard to justify the price tag for that, even though everyone who tries the thing is amazed. (39 minutes ago)
  • Megido
    Megido I think VR needs 2 things. A massive price cut, and a real killer app to sell it. This isn't it. (41 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite A couple more well polished titles and we could potentially be seeing a snowballing effect for VR down the road as it gathers momentum. (1 Hour ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Yeah, Joe's last comment claiming it to be a "system seller", in his view of course, is really encouraging. (1 Hour ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks well aside from whatever your universe preference is the game looks fucking great. Gives more hope for VR's future (2 Hours ago)
