    Any other tennis fans in the house around here gonna be picking this up? I've been playing tennis since I was 5, and love playing it probably more than any other sport. I'm a huge Sampras fan, and hate Agassi (bald meth-headed fraud) and cannot wait to tear Agassi apart with Sampras in this game. Tennis games have always been fun for me (and who didn't like Virtua Tennis back in the day?) and I'm sure there are others out there that feel the same. Any takers for some matches online once this game comes out?

    As a tennis fan, I'll be picking this up as well. Furthermore, as an Agassi fan, it looks as though you will get your wish.

    Haha I'm not very good at these "world sport" type games (my FIFA play can attest to that) so maybe you'll get to write some revisionist history and have Agassi whoop up on Sampras' ass.

    I believe Sampras was 18-12 against Agassi in their playing careers

    The good old days. I hope Patrick Rafter is in there, too.

    A little sad Juan Martin del Potro isn't in the game, he should be in there over James Blake. He's probably my favorite player currently. Although I do love me some Federer and Andy Murray.

    Not a huge Roddick fan. He's a colossal underachiever and overhyped player. He actually reminds me a lot of myself (huge serve, hard time finishing out opponents, plays down to his opponents and not up to them) and I hate how I play and wish I was 100x better, so watching him frustrates me lol

    America is just so starved for a new tennis star on the men's side that they think above average players (Roddick, Blake, Isner to an extent, etc.) can be superstars, when they don't come close to Nadal or Federer

    Agreed.

    I've never played, so I will rely on both of you for showing me the ropes.

    The demo was released and it's a fun game. I'm pretty impressed with 2K Sports. Looking forward to the full title release.

    Same. Have you seen the new Developer Diary about the career mode? If the online doesn't pan out, at least the Career Mode will be good

    Like NASCAR, I think this game was developed for a deep CM. I'm still interested in hitting the ball around online with the few of us.

    The more I play the more I like this game. Just moved the difficulty up a bit as I am starting to learn how to move the ball around more and use different shots to keep the AI off balance.

    EDIT: Just pre-ordered this and NASCAR The Game 2011 on Amazon. Top Spin 4 has a $20 promotion credit if you order now that will be rewarded upon shipment. Its a free release-date delivery for anyone who takes advantage of this pre-order. Also, the NASCAR game has a similar offer but the credit is only $10.

    Anybody else noticed that Virtua Tennis 4 will be coming out soon after this game?

    here's a quick trailer that doesn't show much:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GcZkguu73S0

    But the main reason I'm interested right now? The list of players is much more current and relevant to today's game of tennis than Top Spin 4 (which I think will have the better gameplay, I was highly disappointed with Virtua Tennis 3)

    ATP Players
    • [​IMG] Roger Federer
    • [​IMG] Rafael Nadal
    • [​IMG] Novak Djokovic
    • [​IMG] Andy Murray
    • [​IMG] Juan Martín del Potro
    • [​IMG] Andy Roddick
    • [​IMG] Fernando González
    • [​IMG] Tommy Haas
    • [​IMG] Philipp Kohlschreiber
    • [​IMG] Gaël Monfils
    • [​IMG] Andreas Seppi
    WTA Players
    • [​IMG] Venus Williams
    • [​IMG] Ana Ivanović
    • [​IMG] Caroline Wozniacki
    • [​IMG] Svetlana Kuznetsova
    • [​IMG] Maria Sharapova
    • [​IMG] Anna Chakvetadze
    • [​IMG] Laura Robson
    Outside of the Legends players in Top Spin 4, that list shits all over it. I'm pumped to play with Del Potro, Gonzalez, hell even Wozniacki should be fun.

    The best thing about tennis is that they don't care if their top players tank tournaments for money.

    The demo is amazing. Extremely fun.

    I used to dick around with the old Top Spin in college with kids on our tennis team. They'd kick my fucking ass all over the place.

    Definitely getting TS4, VT4 will most likely be a down the road purchase unless it has rave reviews
