All Articles: Virtua Tennis 4
The PlayStation Store had one of its sparser updates last night, but managed to bring a couple gems to the people. The E-Rated Alien Zombie Mega Death debuted, coming chock full of adventure levels and survival modes. Killzone 3‘s From the Ashes pack also arrived, bringing a nice mix of new wave and old school multiplayer maps to the game. Finally, all you early adopters can check out a 3D demo of Virtua Tennis 4 in all its PlayStation Move compatibility.
For the full list of updates, head over to the PlayStation Blog.
After moving up its launch date up week, Bethesda and Splash Damage are ready to release their parkour-inspired shooter Brink on the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
If you’d rather travel by sea, then you should know that Disney and Lego Captain Jack Sparrow will release Lego Pirates of the Caribbean on every current system (3DS, DS, PC, PS3, PSP, Wii and Xbox 360) this week. Perhaps wall running and boating aren’t for you. Then you’d be well to know that THQ is bringing their latest off-road racing title, MX vs ATV Alive, to the PS3 and Xbox 360 this week.
Moving on from the “ways to get around” theme, Sega has Virtua Tennis 4 set to be released on the PS3, Wii and Xbox 360 while Deep Silver is bringing Duke Nukem: Critical Mass to the DS. Let’s hope it doesn’t take forever for our next helping of Duke.
Check out the full list of the rest of this week’s new releases after the break. (more…)
We already knew that Virtua Tennis 4 would be getting PlayStation Move support (Kinect, too) but Sega appears to have a couple other goodies for the PlayStation Nation. One such bonus is the inclusion of “legend players,” consisting of Boris Becker, Stefan Edberg, and Pat Rafter, all three of whom will be playable out of the box. PS3 owners will also get two party games: Pin Crasher, a classic mini game in the Virtua Tennis series, and Net Blitz, which you can see in the video above. Pin Crasher will be DualShock only, but Net Blitz will have Move support.
Virtua Tennis 4 will be available for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii on April 29.
Sega announced that Virtua Tennis 4 will be available in the United States on May 10 for the Wii, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3. The lucky Europeans who probably care about tennis a lot more than we do get the game a little early as an award on April 29. Adapting to the current trends on the HD platforms, Virtua Tennis 4 will be compatible with both PlayStation Move and Xbox 360 Kinect.
