Video: Virtua Tennis 4 PS Vita Exclusive Features and VT Apps

200°
166w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has made available some video footage today of Virtua Tennis 4 for PS Vita which showcases the game's exclusive features and VT apps below.

To quote: Virtua Tennis 4 for PlayStation Vita first stepped onto the court at E3. Even at that early stage in its development, the game showed signs of ambition.

It seems that Sega is taking great care to adapt the tried-and-true gameplay for PS Vita by extensively leveraging the handheld's hardware strengths, all without dumbing down the series's winning formula.

Now, at Gamescom, I finally got to see some of these game modes in action.

Virtua Tennis 4's core experience is nearly identical to its recently-released PS3 counterpart; you can create a character, start a career, and participate in tournaments while enhancing your skills through all kinds of bizarre tennis-related skill tests. Likewise, you can jump into the shoes of Andy Roddick, Roger Federer, or other real-world tennis stars.





What PS Vita brings to the court is a new, yet optional way to control the main serve-and-volley action, plus a series of "VT Apps."

The core gameplay opens up considerably thanks to the PS Vita touch screen. Tap on the screen...

To quote: So I've finally gotten around to releasing 3.0. It's pretty much the same as in 2.99.534 except that you can now arbitrarily zoom the video via a setting in the popup menu.

I'm leaving on a vacation tomorrow and wont bring the PS3 with me so don't expect any (tested) PS3 features the next weeks. I will hopefully find time to do a bunch of other non-platform depended features though.

Once I get back I hope to address all aspects of audio on the PS3, in particular:

  • AV sync problems
  • Digital output
  • Volume control

Have a nice summer!
