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.
August marked the end of the summer shutdown with the release of Kane & Lynch 2, Madden NFL 2011, Mafia II and Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. They managed to keep us entertained for a …
SEGA have officially announced Virtua Tennis 4. It’s coming to PlayStation 3 and it’ll be both Move and 3D compatible. Releasing in 2011, Virtua Tennis 4 promises a more “immersive, true to life tennis experience than ever before.”
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.
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.
