Actually they are from this site - http://powersmash3.sega.jp/ps3/game-mode/g_world.html. And it's from PS3 version. But I don't think Xbox360 version and this are very different.

Hingis looks like crap :help:. They have the same exact world tour mode as 2K2 tennis, which was still pretty awesome. They still have, however, their SHITTY "stats" record telling you your max serev %, total smashes and errors :retard:. This is one of the few things that irritated the hell out of me. They should make the game more realistic in that you hit more errors than just bludgeon the ball 24/7 and hit no more than 5 errors :o. Also I really REALLY do hope that there's the option of putting matches more than 1 set, something all their previous games failed to do :tape:.

Game looks tremendous though, can't wait for it to come out, but I'll have to buy a PS3 first. I should have one by the time the game comes out though :yeah:.

Also about World Tour mode:
"While drawing up the character of the boy or the woman, training (the mini- game) and the academy (topic) and the like with growing, you challenge to the worldwide tour where the top professional confronts!"

"While playing, there are also times when you can receive the unusual wear and accessory. You play with fashion of your own taste!"

"The mail of the communication from executive office, advice from the coach and offer etc of the practice tournament reaches from the professional player."

"Play style is set to also the prayer player. 'The rookie' empty you start the time of game start. When 'in the average player' 'advanced player' and so on it keeps changing according to the growth of ability, the medium board becomes 'it keeps changing in those such as big server' 'all round' with the deviation of status."

I agree that the Hingis image is really bad...but I love the way the courts look. I only have a PS2....hopefully I will get the PS3 after it's been out a while. I have most of the tennis games that were released on PS1 & PS2...except for Topspin and the Dokic one. I have WTA Tennis, Virtua Tennis 1 & 2, Anna K Smash Court Tennis and some other dodgy tennis game on PS1...cann't remember what it's called but the main tennis players were Schett and Hewitt.

Virtua Tennis 3 will be coming out for PC, Xbox360, and PS3

i like virtua tennis series, and has a greater excitement level than top spin franchise, however, it doesnt feel nowhere as realistic as top spin. The controls are too clunky in comparison to top spin. Hopefully, it is changed this time around.

Shortage of WTA players when compared to ATP, but this has to probably be the best tennis roster seen in a game featuring both men and women.

As for the actual gameplay being clunky as mentioned before and not as realistic as topspin (topspin is, but has big time flaws which certain things make it insanely unrealistic. apart from the horrid volleys, smash court 2 is the most realistic tennis game ever made) the gameplay does look very much improved and you can just see from some videos that were put up that there's actually a difference in a flat shot topspin slice etc. It looks more well rounded than their previous counterparts, but even if those old ones were insanely fun :rocker2:.

On a side note, all the players bar Hingis (though I think that's just a nasty shot of her) look so similar to their real life counterparts its somewhat scary :scared:.

Just create her :p.

You RARELY see both sisters in the same game, though don't both of them have a contract with SEGA :shrug:?

VT2 had them both. WTA Tour and Smash Court 2 had Serena only, whileVT2 on the PSP and Top SPin 2 only had Venus.

I cant wait for this game...I'm sorry but I am out of love with Topspin 2 for the 360...It plays slow...and the players movement and actions are just not natural...Serve outwide and then hit a winner off the return...:boring:

and about gamespot "Posted Sep 28, 2006 2:34 am PT"

To conclude, I don't believe a single word of it, especially when you know that there'll be online game on 360, not on PS3.

Well, if it's coming out on XBOX360, I don't see any harm in adding another tennis game in addition to my Top Spin 2, can never get enough of those :D

I cant wait for this game to come out i pretty much bought a PS3 just for this game so it better be good! I sometimes wish i could make a tennis game because it would have the few elements I think all the other games are missing that could make them great for example
1. you dont have to create a player in career mode you can just pick ur fave and play if you want
2. you have a full men's ranking and full womens ranking in the career players 1-25 on the real life rankinglist i think 1-50 or 100 might be pushing it
3. you can unlock veteran players like Navratilova Evert Seles Graf and so on they'd make these new games even better to ad some old school in to it
4. Have all real tourneys like Melbourne Wimbledon Kremlin Cup not default/ knock off names like British Cup and stuff like that

add these elements and I promise tennis fans will buy or atleast i will :) but i'll settle for Virtua Tennis 3 for now
