You have just searched for "virtua tennis 2009". Here are the results:
With 2009 now the latest edition in the beloved series, Virtua Tennis has been a stalwart sports sim on consoles since its emergence back on the Sega Dreamcast in 2000. Of course, a lot has changed since those heady days of 128-bit serving and volleying. With this generation’s near photo-realistic graphics, ubiquitous online options and numerous other advances in game-play and design, you’d expect Sega to serve up a vastly enhanced rendition of the popular title.
But have they? Looking at the amount of detail and copious game options available we’d have to say yes and there’s no doubt Virtua Tennis 2009 is a solid and enjoyable tennis sim. But, and there’s always a but, we just feel there is a lack of innovation in the perennial update that suggests that – though Sega have produced a great game for tennis fans – they may not necessarily have made a significantly new one.
And you thought sinking pirate ships was as weird as it was going to get. How about fending off hungry crocodiles (or alligators depending on your region) with a tennis ball? Virtua Tennis 2009 is bringing your old favorite Virtua Tennis 3 mini games back for another spin.
See ‘Meat Defender’ and other favorite Virtua Tennis mini games in action for today’s lesson: you can thwart an alien invasion with nothing more than tennis balls and a good arm.
Virtua Tennis 2009 is not your average tennis game. Sure you have your tennis pros, real life stadiums, single player, offline and online multi player, tournament and career modes.
But if the picture to your left is any indication, there’s something more. Something that includes pirates.We know what some of you are asking yourselves right now: Will there be ninjas too?*
Check out some new Virtua Tennis 2009 footage courtesy of the guys from Sega.
Can you tell which is game-play and what’s actual real-life footage?
We recorded a video in which we talk about what we think will be the best PS3 tennis game of 2009. Since it looks like this will be the only PS3 tennis game in 2009 we are feeling pretty good about that claim. Never mind that, we are throwing the kitchen sink just in case. Gorgeous graphics, new locations, new players, and even new 3D crowds. We can still feel that new crowd smell, probably because Timmy keeps wearing it as cologne.
SEGA is back on the court with another Virtua Tennis for your PS3. The third SEGA tennis game to grace the PS3 (Virtua Tennis 3 and SEGA Superstars Tennis being the other two), Virtua Tennis 2009 will return with major enhancements and additions this year.
Once more on our post-Saturday-night recovery day, known in some circles as “Sunday”, we take a look back at a week in Twitter. See what we have been chirping about all week and add your own tuneful melody into the mix if you feel so inclined..
PS3 Attitude takes a look into 2009 and documents all 123 known games scheduled to be released during the year. Though 2008 was a stellar year it is definitely safe to say that 2009 is looking even brighter for Sony’s console.
Believe it or not, the PlayStation 3 was released nearly four years ago, and since then the console has been graced with hundreds of great titles. Therefore, we at PS3 Attitude thought we’d take some time to pay tribute to the people who create the games that make our mundane lives just that little bit more entertaining: the developers.
Over the next few weeks we’ll be revealing our one hundred favourite developers, and believe us when we say that there are some incredibly talented teams included. We’ve now revealed eighty developers in our mammoth list, and today we’re revealing ten more.
The UK’s position as a world-leading developer of video games is under threat. For years it has been the third largest employer of development staff in the world, with the USA and Japan in first and second position, but recent times have seen the UK overtaken by the Canadian games industry.
We all had a different reaction to the recent news of Batman’s delay, but we can all still agree that we want to play Batman: Arkham Asylum as soon as it hits the streets.
In a good news/bad news scenario, Eidos and Warner Bros. released a new video showcasing Batman’s ‘freeflow combat’ to ease the pain and/or whet the appetite even further. We have to be frank for a minute, the bad news totally overshadow the good news.
We’re back with the second part in our two part Games Database “catching up” series. You’ve probably heard of most of the following games scheduled to hit the PS3 over the next year or so.
Then again, there are probably a few titles that will be a complete surprise (they were to us at least).
When it comes to smaller, niche and even retro games, the PSN is where it’s at these days.
Speaking over at the official PS Blog (we’ve mentioned that we love that site, right?) Senior Manager of the PlayStation Store, Grace Chen, has announced “PSN Spring Fever”.
Welcome to the PS3 Attitude Games Database for 2009.
What follows is a comprehensive and constantly updated list of every confirmed game available for the PlayStation 3 in 2009 (and beyond), lovingly crafted and curated by …
Obviously this week’s update is dominated by the massive collection of launch Vita titles that are arriving on the store. A total of 17 games are now available for download on your new device. We hope your memory card can hold it.
In other news PlayStation Plus members are gifted a full retail game, Grand Theft Auto IV and House Of The Dead III can be purchased and the Mass Effect 3 demo awaits. All-in-all this may be the most content rich PlayStation Store update the States have ever seen.
The European PlayStation Store consistently outdoes its North American counterpart in terms of full-game downloads. This week is no different as EU gamers are granted the option of a full Blu-Ray download of Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit.
In other news, Cole Phelps returns to the arson desk with the ‘Nicholson Electroplating Arson Case’. If you’re planning on collecting all the DLC that L.A. Noire is scheduled to offer, the Rockstar Pass would be a wise investment.
Summer has officially begun PS3 Attitude fans. Time to cut off the bottom halves of your pants and jump in a lake. In accordance with the seasonal change EA is offering shimmering content discounts for three of its titles. 3 on 3 NHL Arcade is a fantastic way to melt away an afternoon with two friends.
As for the rest of the update, well, if you were to say that this wasn’t the strongest selection of content ever to his the PSN we wouldn’t disagree.
Like the North American update, this week the European store is receiving somewhat of an abbreviated selection of content. However North American users have reason to be jealous of their European brethren as inFamous 2 and Beyond Good And Evil HD are both available for download this week.
With all that E3 week brings to the table it’s easy for our dear PlayStation Store updates to get lost in the shuffle.
It may not be the largest bevy of content to ever hit the PSN but there is some value to be had. Remember we’re all PlayStation Plus members for the time being. Take a look.
