95w ago - EA Sports Producer Nate McDonald has shared a video below announcing that Grand Slam Tennis 2 is moving to PS3 today.
To quote: Hey everyone, Nate McDonald here, one of the producers for EA SPORTS Grand Slam Tennis 2.
This is an exciting post for me to write because after a lot of hard work by a great group of people here at EA Canada, we are ready to launch this franchise to you on the PlayStation 3 platform!
Given that this was our first venture into the tennis genre on next gen, we really wanted to focus on developing a well-rounded title, with fun and innovative controls, high quality detailed graphics and presentation for all of the players and courts, and enough feature depth to keep you coming back for more, whether it be single player, multi-player, or online.
I have to say that developing our All-New Total Racquet Control system was the most challenging, but also ended up being the most rewarding.
We are really proud of this new innovative control scheme, and although it will take a little bit of practice to get used to it, we think that you will really enjoy the amount of fidelity that you have in the controls and how precise you can be.
97w ago - EA Sports Producer Nate McDonald has announced today that fans can experience Wimbledon this February through Grand Slam Tennis 2 for PlayStation 3.
To quote: We are very excited to be bringing this franchise to you on the PlayStation 3 platform. Right now, I'm going to give you a quick rundown of what you can be looking forward to in our demo, which is currently available on the PlayStation Store.
One of our big innovations is our All-New Total Racquet Control, where you can control every shot with the right analog stick, smashing forehands, backhands, overheads, and volleys with precision, accuracy, and power.
You can utilize this control system to take your game to the next level, however, if you prefer the old school button controls, those are still available to play with as well.
Also new, and exclusive to PlayStation 3, is our PlayStation Move support. The motion control experience gets you on your feet and literally puts the racquet right in the palm of your hands. With a little bit of practice in the Practice Court prior to playing a match, you should have a good handle on all of the different control schemes in no time!
Once you have developed your shots in the Practice Court,...

To quote: Firstly let me introduce myself to those of you who don't know me. My name is David Kempshall and I'm the Brand Manager for Virtua Tennis 4 and have worked on the game since the original version became available in 1999 on arcade machines across the world.
This is the first of a series of blogs about Virtua Tennis 4, which is out on May 10th, but I'd like to start with a few words about the big earthquake that hit Japan on March 11.
Everybody over here deeply appreciates your concern and consideration for us. Things have still not gotten back to normal, and areas around Tokyo are suffering from planned outages due to electricity shortages, but we are doing our very best to deliver Virtua Tennis 4 to you.

169w ago - Sony Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has made available a video today spotlighting Sports Champions Table Tennis on PlayStation Move for the PS3 entertainment system.
To quote: If you've previously played a tennis or ping pong video game, you might have an idea of what it's like to play Table Tennis in Sports Champions. You might also be wrong
We wanted to wrap up Sports Champions Week with Table Tennis, because what might seem to be a very basic game proves itself to be quite complex when you factor in the precision of PlayStation Move.
In this video, producer Jeremy Ray demonstrates how the paddle is replicated in 3 dimensions, X, Y, and Z-axis tracking, and also shows off multiplayer and how you too can fend off a robot attack with ping pong balls.
That concludes Sports Champions Week, which will be available in the PlayStation Move bundle this very weekend. If you missed them, please take a look at our Archery, Gladiator Duel, and Disc Golf videos. The final game also includes Bocce and Beach Volleyball.
