Interview with Sumo Digital and AM3

Interview with Sumo Digital and AM3

XCN has provided us with another great interview, this time with the developers behind the just-released Virtua Tennis 3. I found the demo hard to begin with, as many of you out there, but more and more training made the game really entertaining. Inside you'll find their thoughts about 1080p, DLC, explanation of the online mode and much more.

It's sad how they have to dodge all the negatively charged PS3 questions. Instead of complaining how Sony had nothing ready for online matchmaking or services, they turn it around as a priority issue. Same story for VF5 then.

But hats off for a great looking, 60fps 1080p game! Some devs cant get the tennis ball on a black background to run at 30fps at 720p.

Wow, they only started work on the 1080p support on 360 last autumn? I'm quite impressed they managed it, and at 60Hz!

But i'm quite surprised that, from teh sounds of things, there is no online play for the PS3 version. Correct me if i'm wrong, but thats a little poor. Still, the 360 version gets the full Live treatment.

Boring interview.. Mainly because of all the predictable avoiding PR answers (read: no answers at all) to the somewhat more interessting questions..

PS3 is getting the step child treatment from developers now o_O

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'm going to play it in about an hour after I finish up a few more rounds of Rainbow Six. It's a Tom Clancy night I guess. (21 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX That's weird.. aphex said the gun mechanics were pretty good. (22 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Feels so much similar to Watch Dogs 2's mechanics, minus the best parts. (23 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts I understand what the developers are trying to achieve, but the execution leaves much to be desired. And make no mistake, this is a collect-a-ton open world first and foremost than a TPS game. (24 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts are too predictable. Didn't have any challenge to it. But it's not all bad, the chatter between the team members is really nice and the customization is great. Graphics are very good, minus pop-ins. (26 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Can't put my finger on why exactly, but if I had to guess is because the shooting is so bad, and in a TPS game, that's basically it. The areas you explore are really good, design wise, but the enemies (28 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts It's a Ubisoft game by the numbers. It's like playing Assassin's Creed, Far Cry, Watch Dogs, etc in a military setting. Had fun checking lists and collecting stuff, but it feels hollow somehow. (29 minutes ago)
