    Oh...My...Gosh...

    I do not want a Ps3 but those graphics are INSANE!
    I thought the one of the women about to serve was real until i blinked a few times.

    And those 3-D crowds are amazing....

    I see why that thing is so expensive,and why the games are so expensive!

    I really wish the wii could do that AND be cheap and have the wii-mote:( .

    Oh well at least i will still have a healthy wallet when i buy my wii (or not:p )

    It might have fooled me if not for the super bright contrast. What is this a kiddy game :D

    i think it looks quite nice, "Next-Gen" graphics are badass (when does Next become current btw?)

    I seem to remember a long bitter thread about this on PS3 vs 360 and which one had better graphics and they had different dev teams so its not a fair comparision and blah blah...

    I expect Gran Turismo HD will floor me and make me want to buy a PS3 and an HDTV...

    Since the PC was doing them years back :p Next Gen, IMO are DirectX 10 graphics.

    i stopped including computers in my generations. I got tired of adding another generation each time ATI/nVidia decided to pump out another 600$ graphic card to make games look a fraction better than the one before it :p

    A fraction? You mean DirectX 9's Farcry to DirectX 10's Crysis? Crysis looks like it's using raytracers! I mean to the uninitiated it is a small step but we're all modern gamers, we know the score ;)

    called me unintiated? ouch... I have been around the gaming scene since NES :p Farcry is two years old, of course its going to look crappier. Halo 2 is two years old, GoW makes it look likea huge steaming pile :p but whatever, to each his own

    oopsy, didn't mean it to come out like that! but yea there are incremental upgrades to video cards (DX9a, b etc) where updates and not that noticeable, but have you seen what those DX10 cards can do? Sure they're expensive, but they're for computers. I just think DX10 is the big leap from all that was 9, all the Dooms and HL2's etc.

    or... the way I see it "does it look real? *tick* it's DX10". It's a shame the 360 and PS3 are just DX9.

    The crowd just look like flat sprites to me. Meh...

    The models of the characters look nice though.

    It looks really good, but not as amazing as I had hoped.

    It looks good, I'm sure it looks even better in action full 1080p on a nice screen. However, it's still just Tennis.

    No analog throttle/brake controls (no, the stick DOES NOT COUNT) = No thanks.

    IIRC, the 360 supports some DX-10 level capabilities.

    But now the 360 will be able to do 1080p I wonder if they will add full 1080p support to the 360 version.

    Not that many TV's and therefore gamers will ever get to experience 1080p on their TV.....

    I still imagine the pair of them will be almost identical (not that I care - not a biggest tennis fan anyway)

    + the benefit of having all the consoles is you can chop and choose which version you want and it only costs you the price of 3 consoles ;) :D


    As Oni points out Armoured Core 4 was announced, but was also announced for the 360 for those with just M$ console. It will be interesting to see what Team Ninja do in relation to Ninja Gaiden as they have been very much M$ buddys for the last few years...

    "next" becomes "current" (IMO) when all the "next" gen systems come out. So sometime in November.

    When will then be now? Soon!

    Exactly. When I got my PSP and having a bazz on Ridge Racer and Burnout I was thinking "right... so how do I slow down without hammering on/off the accelerator?"
    I really don't understand how Sony can't put actual analogue triggers into their controllers in this day and age, even Nintendo have them! <3 the 30 minutes or so I've played Forza for

    Virtua looks nice. The close ups definitely look better than on Top Spin 2 on the 360....but the rest looks similar. One thing that may make this a better game would be the amount of Pro Tennis players on there. TS2 does not have that many. They need to add more and include legends (Sampras, Borg, McEnroe,etc.).
