171w ago - SCEE Blog Manager James Gallagher has shared details on Virtua Tennis 4 and PlayStation Move today, and confirmed it will be hitting the PS3 entertainment system in Spring 2011.

"When we first started the series, we wanted to make a casual arcade game that everyone could pick up and enjoy," she said.

According to GameSpot.com, Singapore is set to be the first south-east Asian country to score Sony's motion-sensing add-on for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system, which will arrive on September 15, 2010.
Below is a new Sony PlayStation Move demo video courtesy of V3 via YouTube, and to quote from the video's caption:
"Table Tennis will never be quite the same with Sony's Move motion controller game system that is a bit like Wii only with glowing orbs on.

To be released in Europe from 15 September for the PlayStation 3, the Move motion controller will be priced at around £40 but you will also need the PlayStation Eye camera and that will cost about another £30.
You might also want to get the PlayStation Move charging station, to charge up to two Move controllers at once without having to connect them to the PS3 system, and that will set you back about another £30.
