Regular readers will not need reminding of our unreasonable attachment to tennis games
Nor will they be surprised to learn that Virtua Tennis 4 is one of our most anticipated launch titles for the PlayStation Vita. Those of you that played the arcade tennis sim on the PS3 earlier in the year will be immediately familiar with its PlayStation Vita...
Virtua Tennis 4 on the PlayStation Vita might be primarily a port of the PlayStation 3 title that launched earlier in the year, but it's still packing enough additional features to make tennis fanatics like ourselves double-dip
The big headline comes in the form of touch controls, allowing you to swipe across the touch-screen to play shots as opposed to tapping buttons. Seeing as we nearly always..
SEGA West's gaffer Mike Hayes has told VG247 that his company is preparing two titles for PlayStation Vita's launch
The publisher announced Virtua Tennis 4 at E3 earlier in the year, but still has another top-secret title up its sleeve. On Vita, we can came out pretty early on and said we were going to give support to the hardware, Hayes told VG247 in an exclusive interview. And we will have..
We know SEGA's got two projects in-development for the PlayStation Vita: Virtua Tennis 4 and another top-secret title
What we didn't know is just how much the company loves Sony's new portable. Its interesting on Vita technically its brilliant, its beautiful, and its really great to play, SEGA's gaffer Mike Hayes told IndustryGamers about Virtua Tennis 4. Weve managed to use a..
SEGA's sales have dropped across the board, leaving the company firmly in the red to the tune of about £17
6 million (2.224 billion yen) for the months April, May and June. SEGA made 28.5 percent less than the same period last year, and costs rose due to the impact of the Japan earthquake — which particularly impacted the operating costs of its pachislot and pachinko business. Adoption of video..
Zumba Fitness is still top of the UK sales charts this week, beating out Codemasters' DiRT 3 and Activision's Transformers: Dark Of The Moon to take the top spot again. The top ten was familiar territory this month, with Top Spin 4 and Virtua Tennis 4 both taking up slots in the aftermath of Wimbledon, and favourites such as L.A. Noire, Brink...
Zumba Fitness is top of the UK sales charts again
Sigh. It's the game's third consecutive week in premium position, proving, if nothing else, that overweight middle-aged women now enjoy video games as much as spotty teenagers. The chart was backed up by usual suspects of LEGO: Pirates Of The Caribbean and L.A. Noire, with F.E.A.R. 3 taking the...

Regular readers will know about our obsession with tennis games
Naturally we're going somewhat gaga over the announcement of Virtua Tennis 4 for the PlayStation Vita. Let's not forget how good Virtua Tennis: World Tour was when it launched alongside the original PlayStation Portable. To this day it's one of the best games available for the platform. Virtua Tennis 4 for PlayStation Vita will be the..
We're blaming you for the lack of good motion controlled tennis games
Sort of. Granted Virtua Tennis 4 doesn't do a particularly wonderful job with its PlayStation Move support, but if no one is buying big brand tennis games with standard controller support, who's going to plump up the development costs for a Move exclusive? Virtua Tennis 4 managed a lowly 23rd on the UK charts this week, while..

Stop worrying: Virtua Tennis 4 plays exactly how you'd expect it to with the PlayStation Move
While a little forgiving, SEGA's anticipated tennis sequel provides the intricate motion control many of us have been dreaming of since first experiencing Sports Champions' excellent table-tennis mode. The publisher really deserves kudos for unlocking the...
This time next week we'll be pulling a sickie
We don't even care if Sony announces the PlayStation 4, you won't find us in the PushSquare office. Why? Because SEGA's just confirmed that a PlayStation 3 exclusive Virtua Tennis 4 demo is on the way. And it's not a one-set taster either. The demo will allow you to get a taste of Virtua Tennis 4's...
If you wanted to turn your PlayStation Move controller into a plastic representation of a tennis racket, then SEGA's got your back
Posting on the PlayStation Blog, veteran SEGA executive producer, Mie Kumagai, has revealed a bunch of exclusive features for the PlayStation 3 version of the upcoming Virtua Tennis 4. So ok, the tennis rackets look terribly tacky, but the other features are pretty..
We're probably the only video games blog consistently singing the praises of this year's suite of tennis titles, but someone's got to do it
With 2K's Top Spin 4 already confirmed for March, SEGA's followed up with an April 29th release date for Virtua Tennis 4 in Europe. North America will be made to wait until May 10th to get their tennis on. Virtua Tennis 4 is being developed in-house by the team..
In an interview with CVG, SEGA's Mie Kumagai has described the PlayStation Move "the most accurate" motion technology for Virtua Tennis 4
It's reassuring news, particularly after the announcement of Wii and Kinect versions of the game, as we'd worried SEGA might tone down the Move's motion tracking potential. Anyone that's played table-tennis in Move-exclusive Sports Champions will know just how..
Perhaps it's our abnormal tennis game-hype that's causing us to flip-out over this shot of a Virtua Tennis 4 court, but we can't help it
ARGH, so amazing. The SEGA Sky is in place. All the screenshot is missing is the SEGA Rock. Do your best to imagine it though, it's not hard. It's like: power-chord - power-chord - riffy melody - chug - chug. Y'know what we mean. By all accounts the..
It's been a while since we got any information regarding Virtua Tennis 4, but in order to spoil 2K Sport's Top Spin announcements, SEGA's decided reveal all
On top of this evening's player roster trailer, SEGA's reconfirmed that Virtua Tennis 4 will release this Spring on PlayStation 3. All the PlayStation Move implementation touted last year is of course still in place. Virtua Tennis 4 will..
It's been a while since we heard anything about Virtua Tennis 4, so it's pretty exciting to get a new trailer
Pretty convenient that it should drop on the same week 2K Sports detail Top Spin 4 too. Honestly, it matters squat to us. Traditionally Virtua Tennis and Top Spin have wildly different gameplay styles, so we'll be buying both to get our racquet swinging fix. As for the names, it's the usual..
There are two games in SEGA's 2011 release schedule that give us bigger boners than Kim Kardashian in a leather catsuit: Yakuza 4 and Virtua Tennis 4
That's some synergy right there; the two PlayStation 3 exclusive four-quels [does that work? - Ed] are due out at some point this year, with Yakuza 4 coming first in the Spring. SEGA's been pretty quiet about Virtua Tennis 4 lately so it's good to see..
Sony's countered the release of Microsoft's Kinect device with an extensive list of PlayStation Move compatible software
The list — which includes new, old, upcoming and patched titles — makes for enticing reading to anyone considering picking up the device, but there are a couple of notable absentees. In the category for upcoming PlayStation Move titles, both Virtua Tennis 4 and Sorcery are..
One of our favourite announcements from yesterday was the that Virtua Tennis 4 will be coming to the PlayStation 3 with full PlayStation Move integration
Despite being 3D, this video from GameTrailers gives a good idea of how the game will play out. It adopts a new camera system that switches into a first-person view-point when the ball comes close to the player. That allows you to concentrate..
If there's one genre we love, it's the tennis game genre
Seriously, we just can't get enough of games involving racquets and balls. We know it sounds absurd (you probably like your shooting and killing), but ever since we first tried Virtua Tennis in an arcade we've been in love with the genre. So it's with massive announcement we can confirm that Virtua Tennis 4 is coming to the PS3 with..
