We already knew a PlayStation 3 version of Virtua Tennis 4 was in the works, but today, Sega announced that the franchise will also be appearing on the Nintendo Wii and Xbox 360. It comes out in Spring 2011.
According to Sega, the game has been developed to take full advantage of Kinect for Xbox 360, the PlayStation Move, and Wii's MotionPlus, essentially doubling-down on the motion control. Tennis, as a sport, is uniquely suited to motion control-- there's a reason everyone played Wii Sports Tennis when the Wii launched -- so I'll bet this will be an amazing experience for you net-heads out there.

Virtua Tennis 4 boasts more than simply a emphasis on motion-control, it will also feature the top stars in the world of tennis, including world No.1 Rafael Nadal, 16-time major champion Roger Federer and UK No.1 Andy Murray. Joining them for the first time are seven new champions making their debut to the series, enabling players to take on the likes of Juan Martín Del Potro, Fernando Gonzalez, Caroline Wozniacki and Laura Robson.
So, what do you guys think? Is Virtua Tennis 4 the game for you? Personally, I'm looking forward to this one, especially playing it on Kinect -- if done right, this could be both an awesome game and an awesome workout tool. Also: Which console would you choose to play this game on?
