Tennis video game anyone? Top Spin 4 is coming out in 2011 for the PS3, 360 and Wii, according to 2K Games. The game will feature a deep roster of tennis greats, redesigned controls, "jaw-dropping player models" and "Signature Style animations," as well as enhanced TV-style presentation elements.
“Top Spin 4 is shaping up to be the most realistic and exhilarating tennis game in the Top Spin franchise,” said Greg Thomas, president of product development for 2K Sports, in a statement “For this iteration, the development team is focused on delivering a bold new take on the sport of tennis by allowing gamers to experience first-hand an uncanny level of realism in the player and stadium models, authentic audio captured directly from real tennis matches, and all-new innovative controls to dominate the competition.”
Be-mulleted tennis great Andre Agassi is being dangled in front of gamers like bait: AA will be a playable character to anyone who pre-orders the game from GameStop. Everyone else will have to live in a world where Andre Agassi isn't playing tennis, and I call that world "Hell."
But seriously, enough with the pre-order bonuses, video game industry. It's creating hurt feelings.
