Heres a quote from the game that sounds cool!

"Any coach will tell you that you need commitement to win.

Any nutritionist will tell you the right food to eat.

You'll be told its about the right gear, the most high tech shoes, the latest sweat resistant fabrics, and the most cutting edge racquet money can buy.

But all that will get you nowhere, without the right mindset.

To win - you have to want it.

TOP SPIN 3 - ITS ALL ABOUT ATTITUDE.

The most realistic tennis experience coming soon to a next gen console near you.

Released Spring 2008"

Ok i know this image is from Top spin 2. But they cant claim its a relastic game when they release screenshots like this!!!

I always create my own players anyway, so I don't care who they include.

I hope they let you challenge line calls like they do in Smash Court 3. That's fun. About a third of them are actually in when they call them out. They allow three challenges a set in SC3.

K Sports Reveals Renowned Lineup of Current and Legendary Stars for Top Spin 3

Tennis greats get back in the game, marking a first for next-generation consoles

2K Sports, the sports publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc., is pleased to announce the all-star player lineup for Top Spin 3, the industry’s most realistic and action-packed tennis video game experience. The star-studded lineup features today’s sensations, including Roger Federer and Maria Sharapova, as well as Boris Becker, Bjorn Borg and Monica Seles, three of the sport’s legendary players. Top Spin 3 marks the first time these iconic pros have appeared in a next-generation video game.

Created by PAM Development, a 2K studio, Top Spin 3 is slated for a spring 2008 release for Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PLAYSTATION 3 computer entertainment system, Wii home video game system, and Nintendo DS.

“With Top Spin 3, we wanted to give gamers the choice to play with their favorite tennis players, as well as classic legends, an option that no other tennis game is offering,” said Chris Snyder, Director of Marketing for 2K Sports. “Boris Becker, Bjorn Borg and Monica Seles have given the game of tennis such great history, and we are excited to have them join the current roster of professionals in the most realistic tennis video game to date.”

The Top Spin 3 player lineup includes the following:

Mario Ancic
Tomas Berdych
James Blake
Roger Federer
Tommy Haas
Justine Henin
Svetlana Kuznetsova
Amelie Mauresmo
Gael Monfils
Andy Murray
Rafael Nadal*
David Nalbandian
Mark Philippoussis
Andy Roddick
Maria Sharapova
Nicole Vaidisova
Caroline Wozniacki

Classic legends**
Boris Becker
Bjorn Borg
Monica Seles

Top Spin 3 offers the most authentic gameplay and features, including signature player animations and expressions, weather changes and situation-specific behaviors, along with revamped audio with enhanced crowd reaction.

Fans will also have the opportunity to play on more than 40 prestigious and visually stunning venues from around the world such as Roland Garros in Paris (French Open) and Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne (Australian Open). Adding to the immersive gameplay experience, fans can utilize a new and innovative Player Creator to customize their own unique tennis stars with free-form body sculpting, makeup and tattoos. Competitive players will also be able to create matches online and test their skills against friends or other ranked players around the world.

Ms Tracy Austin
Feb 21st, 2008, 01:04 PM
I have mixed feelings about this, so I will share them with you. On one hand I rarely ever really use the pros, because my favs Mary Pierce and Marat Safin are never in any of these games, and my created players always turn out better than the pros. Still I have to say that this is not right. How can they have console exclusives for a player? ( Nadal on PS3 only).

This is ridiculously stupid, this is not a fighting game it is a tennis game and every player they have should be on all systems. One has to think that that is going to be the same for the legends, what, one on each system? (360, PS3 and Wii). Why only three legends? Where is Graf, Sampras, Agassi and Navratilova? Why only six (active) women? Where is Serena, Venus, Ivanovic and Jankovic? Why is Djokovic not in? Not to mention the “unfinished” roster on the UK site says this,

Men:Roger Federer , Rafael Nadal , Paul-Henri Mathieu , David Nalbandian , Lleyton Hewitt , James Blake , Gael Monfils , Tomáš Berdych , Andy Roddick , Marcos Baghdatis , Richard Gasquet , Novak Djokovic , David Ferrer
Women:Justine Henin , Maria Sharapova , Ana Ivanovic, Jelena Jankovic
I have also heard that you can only play doubles online with someone in your household only (like Top Spin 1), and that four people from four different households cannot play doubles together like they can now in VT3. I am angry and confused, I just don’t know what to believe and I may not even buy this game now.

im mostly pleased with the roster. pretty much al my female favs ar on it (sharapova,vaidisova,wozniacki) and roddick is on it. my only complaint is that venu sand djokovic are missing. its probably hard to get some of the bigger legendss to agree to be in the game however im shocked that the following players are missing from the roster:venus,ivanovic,djokovic and jankovic. serena wasnt a shock since she hasnt been in a tennis game in a while.

Andrew Laeddis
Feb 21st, 2008, 04:18 PM
and 360 fans dont get to excited about the legends. so far they are only confirmed for the ps3 version. hopefully they will be on the xbx360 version ( i would love to have 2handed forehands in the game especially for created players)as well as the 3 serbs and venus.

1) Graphics are really good and definately improvement from the previous series.

2) They confirmed that there'll be 25 pros in the game, while the articles list only 20. So five more to come.

3) Both TS1 and TS2 had the same amount of male and female players. So if there will be 5 more players they must be all females, because if don't include "legends" (cause they like bonus characters and you may have to unlock them first) there will be 11 male and 6 female players, and if you add 5 more female it would be even at 11. :)

I'm really excited about this game and can't wait for it to be released.

WHY is Monfils all of a sudden in every damn tennis video game. This guy has done nothing to warrant a constant spot in these video games. The women's roster is really good. Top Spin is known for also adding lower ranked plaers, and WOzniaki is a very good choice as she is known very well in the tennis world.

Not liking the fact that the men far outweight the women, but that's not the end of the world. I'm loving the Legends part of the game, and to have Monica Seles back in a tennis game is :drool:. Finally a realistic Monica Seles; they never allowed double handed shots when creating players in any of the previous next-gen tennis games after the slew of 2-D releases. I hope the list of names grows, though, as it seems a little meager atm.

Roger looks fake in this cover.

Sharapova looks really good; for a video game cover that is.

Roddick's pose is a tad weird to be put on a front cover of a game.

INstead of Top Spin 3, judging by this cover, it should have been called Posh Spin 3.:o

Coming back to the release date. It seems that the game will come out at the end of March on Xbox360/Ps3/Wii. So far no information about a PC version. But in the past all of its predecessors came out on pc, too. But the pc ports always arrived much, much later than the console versions. So, there is still hope for the pc-users.

Here is a copy of an email I sent to the PR staff and customer service. It is up to us to demand a game that is worth our money. Please feel free to use this letter and send it to the following addresses:

marcelyn.ditter@2kgames.com, jan.sturm@take2.de, etramblais@taketwo.fr, barbara.ruocco@take2.it, sandra.melero@take2espana.com, warner.guinee@take2benelux.com, snezana@2kgames.com, customerservice@2ksports.com




Good afternoon,

We must say that we are extremely disappointed with the roster of players that will be included in Top Spin 3. 2k Sports declares that they want to give players the opportunity to play with their favorite characters, but how is that the case when so many good and exciting players are not included? How are the Australian Open Finalists left off? How is the 3-time French Open champion left off, except on the PS3? How can you have a list of legends that includes only 3 players? How can you call it a list of legends without an individual who has the most Grand Slams (Pete Sampras) in the open era and an individual who accomplished a Career Grand Slam (Andre Agassi)? Are you toying with us? Essentially, you lied to us by claiming what is not true; you have not giving us the players consumers want to play with. Only 17 players to play with, that is unacceptable; clearly other players must be included into this weak lineup.

Players to add to make this roster the best that it can be:

David Ferrer, Novak Djokovic, Nikolay Davydenko, Marcos Baghdatis, Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, Richard Gasquet, Marat Safin, Nicolas Mahut, Fernando Gonzalez, Paul-Henri Mathieu. Mikhail Youzhny, Ivo Karlovic, Carlos Moya, Canas, Lleyton Hewitt, Anna Ivanovic, Daniela Hantuchova, Jelena Jankovic, Anna Chakvetadze, Venus Williams, Serena Williams, Elena Dementieva, Patty Schnyder, Maria Kirlenko.

We have been eager since July for the release of this game. Now what you have done has only negated our excitement. Thus, we, and our contemporaries, have come to the conclusion that since we've waited this long for the release, we we will continue to wait until another game, such as the Smash Court Series, makes a proper tennis game that one can enjoy, because it will have players that consumers will want to play with. So we will not be purchasing Top Spin 3 until acceptable changes have occurred.

I hope you are paying attention to message boards and blogs on how dissatisfied your potential customers are. The opportunity to make a really fine tennis game and succeed in areas where others have failed is still achievable. Please listen to your consumers; because in the end they are the ones who will be purchasing the game -- but only if they have cause to purchase. At the moment, cause is lacking.

Thank you for your time.

Sincerely,

Dissatisfied consumers

I think this is a little unfair. I dont know if your aware, along with whoever else has complained about the roster, but the team who create Top Spin 3 dont just decided who appears on the game. They have to get permission and pay to use the names and images of players, so if Ivanovic or Serena (for example) dont want to appear in the game, the team cant do anything about it! Its like this in all tennis video games, they cant just put whoever they want in the game!! This is why they are called 'LICENSED PLAYERS'!!!!

Very nice attempt.:) I hope you guys will be heard. Speaking of the rooster, well, it would be a good idea to make missing players downloadable as content for the future. Would be a good idea and would seriously expand the lifespan of this title. I wonder that so far nobody picked that kind of idea up. Of course it is always a matter of license, but well, worth to think about, right.;)

Its like this in all tennis video games, they cant just put whoever they want in the game!! This is why they are called 'LICENSED PLAYERS'!!!!

So, essentially, you are claiming that out of 200 players (ATP 100 & WTA 100) only 17 players agreed to be in the Game. Hmmm, 17/200. Unlikely since, Ivanovic was in the last Top Spin.

Players are salesmen. It is their nature to increase their revenue from endorsement; this is done by marketing themselves by increasing their profiles. Kudos to Ancic and Monfils, now the general public will know who they are. And guess what, impressionable young kids may become fans of theirs. And you know what follows, they may even want to emulate those players. And how is that done? It is done by buying those players racquet brands and apparel. This in turn leads to a better bargaining position on the negotiating table for those endorsement deals.

So you see, players have everything to gain from being in a video game -- name recognition.

Furthermore, the paycheck for of appearing in a tennis video game equals the prize money of winning some tournaments. Are you telling me, that players who don't even win tournaments are going to turn that down?

Personally I think we should be appreciative and grateful for whatever we get. We don't know the details of what the developers can and can't do, nor the expense they need to outlay to get as many of the top players as they can. I am sure if they had their way they would get the top 20 men and women.

So as far as I am concerned, I am looking forward to the game regardless of who is in it and I am thankful that a new version of the game is even being developed. :)

I think Tennis should get its due and have a new release every year, just like the NHL, NBA, NFL, and heck even golf get! Somehow I highly doubt that companies don't have the means to license more players. You can play any NHl, NBA, or NFL game and virtually every single damn player who plays in the NHL (even those who are in the farm teams [AHL]) are included!

Mind you I am greatful of tennis games coming out every 1.5-2 years, however they lack severe reality as opposed to other sports games. Pick up a hockey game and you will be playing the real season's schedule. Points are calculated the exact same way as in real life. You start from scratch each new season, sign/trade players, etc. We have yet to have a tennis game that mimcs its real life counterpart. Sometimes I wish I can simply work with a damn team who is willing to go full force on creating a true tennis game and tell them how to damn do it properly!

I am 100% with you. Golf, as you said, gets its own game every year. I venture to think that a tennis vid game is much more enjoyable than a golf vid game. But what do we as consumers know what we want; how dare us demand a proper tennis game worth our money? So silly of us!

Mar 4th, 2008, 04:38 AM
Actually I think it's because they have never had the ATP or WTA on board with an actual tennis game. The only time I can remember that is for the horrendous WTA Tour Tennis game (Dokic cover) that actually had the tour name in the title of the game. All the other sports games (NHL, NBA, NFL, golf, etc) have their sports logo/name incorporated with their title. I guess that gives them extra leverage in being able to have the complete roster in their games. Can you imagine playing a hockey game that doesn't include every team/player available?:help:

I guess with a tennis game you can get away with it because it isn't a team sport like many other sports so they can simply pick and choose their roster and be content with 20 odd players in their line-up instead of including say 25 males and 25 females; which is feasible if they really set their minds to it.

Also the roster really isn't THAT bad. It's got plenty of top players, just because it doesn't have your favorite players does not make it a shitty roster :weirdo:.

no point in a petition. the pro players arent as good as the created players anyway, so no point in delaying the release of the game when mostly everyone will be playing world tour mode and online with their own characters. a petition also isnt gonna get peoples fave to agree to be in the game. the chances are that serena,ivanovic,jankovic declined to be in the game or wanted too much money. i heard venus is a virtua tennis exclusive now and that why shes not on the roster. in my opinion the only big names really missing are the three serbs. serena hasnt been in a tennis game in ages and i already mentioned the venus situation. hopefully 2k sports releases the game as planned in may. instead of getting made at the game creators get amad your your faves who declined to be in the game. if the creators could get every player in the game dont you think they would like they do for every other sport?

Either hope for a better roster for a future tennis game, or simply CREATE all the missing players you would like to have in the game and enjoy the best part of tennis games; tour mode and leveling up created players. You can mold them as to what you believe their stats should be. Most of the time we do a better job than the creaters do with attributing stats to their rosters.
