    Rockstar makes the crappiest games. Almost as bad as Superman 64. I haven't played more redundant, boring games since E.T. on Atari. I'd never purchase one of their games.

    I believe :confused: adequately describes this.

    Knowing Rockstar, you can probably embed a bomb in the ping pong ball, violently beat your opponent with the paddle, or at the very least, pay off the mafia to threaten to kill your opponent if he wins the game.

    If you read the article posted over at IGN, then you would find out it isn't $60. This game is only $40.

    When Rockstar said they were making a new game for 360 I did not expect this! Wow, surprised me. Looks sweet too.

    I wonder if it's worth pointing out that this is an american wing to Rockstar making this.
    Rockstar North and Leeds (british) both make GTA games.

    They are totally separate only linked by the same company name.

    But yea. $40=£22=£35.

    Nice! But like most sports games I prefer to just play the real thing.

    Not to hijack, but this would be a much better game with the Rev controller :D

    This game will be a sick rental, but past that point.

    Im not so sure. Im disappointed by the games that have been released for the 360 so far. hopefully my 430 dollar purchase will be validated sometime soon.

    :eek:

    The funniest thing about the game are the intensity of the screens. Its like some sort of underground sport in China town where the loser get a finger cut off. :eek:

    Actually this sounds right up Rockstar's ally.

    i called it already "Street X-treme Underground Table Tennis: Playing Under Pressure"

    i wonder if we can suspect more from Rockstar than from EA Table Tennis Roster Update 2007

    just by looking a the screens i guess half the game will be customizing character and adding spoilers to tables

    at least they could have researched that light colored clothes are not allowed at tournaments ... or better: just used common sense before adding sweat effects

    (i played table tennis as a hobby for years as a teenager)

    fully agreed, i honestly think a game like this would get dull very quickly without the kind of in your face action you'd have with the Rev. I personally would NOT want to play, let alone buy this game if it was just a regular controller.

    ^ I dunno. Ping pong with a Rev controller could be pretty good. Heaven knows I wouldn't dare go on worldwide play just to avoid Chinese players (they would just destroy me).
    If the price was right and I had a 360 I might get this too. it might be fun like 18 Wheeler, Animal Crossing, Harvest Moon, any Golf game... games that shouldn't be fun in theory.
