Top Spin 4 In The Works At 2K Czech
Although I'm interested in the PlayStation Move and 3D-compatible Virtua Tennis 4 from Sega, I'll admit to being more intrigued by 2K's announcement today.
The bottom line is that their Top Spin series has always been more realistic and better overall. I've been waiting for some news on a fourth installment and now it's here: 2K Sports has revealed Top Spin 4, which will release next year for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii. If you're willing to place your pre-order between now and launch day (whenever that may be), you'll get Andre Agassi as a playable character! Said Greg Thomas, president of product development for 2K Sports:
"Top Spin 4 is shaping up to be the most realistic and exhilarating tennis game in the Top Spin franchise. 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."
Currently in development at 2K Czech, the fourth iteration features "redesigned controls, jaw-dropping player models and Signature Style animations, enhanced TV-style presentation elements, and one of the deepest player rosters to date featuring tennis' top athletes and legendary pros." I'm good with all of that. All I'm looking for is yet another step in the simulation world; Top Spin 3 was a little too easy to master if you knew how to build your character. But anyway, this is great news and the timing couldn't be better with the US Open in full...er...swing.
