SEGA announced yesterday that the fourth,¬†home console,¬†installment of their popular arcade tennis game, Virtua Tennis, is to be released this May. The game will be released on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC. All of the VT mainstays are there, singles matches, doubles and the ‘World Tour’ mode will all return, with the ‘World Tour’ now having leaderboards. The minigames are back too and are said to feature “crocodiles, pirates and fruit”. What would Virtua Tennis be without it’s minigames. So…anyone for tennis?

Another leak curtosey of the American ratings board the ESRB. This time it’s to do with SEGA’s classic games that have been on XBLA for some time. If this leak is to belived titles such as: Sonic The Hedgehog 2, Streets Of Rage 2 and Golden Axe are all making their way onto the PlayStation Store.

All i’m wondering is, will they work in the same way a PSOne classic does? It’d be great to play some of those games on my PSP.

SEGA have revealed their special edition PlayStation 3 bundle to coincide with the release of Yakuza 3 in Japan. The ‘special’ white PS3 has a dragon motif on it and comes with a white DualShock 3 controller. The console is a standard 80GB console, but is set apart by the aformetioned dragon and a special box.

Considering this is a ‘special edition’ PS3 there’s not much that’s special about it. I guess it’s nice for Yakuza fans. That being said the MGS4 bundle wasn’t too special either and people bought that. I’ve no idea if we’ll see this outside of Japan, although it’s pretty likely we won’t.

Importers at the ready.

Must have missed this one (sorry). It looks like Outrun is coming to PlayStation 3 as a PSN game. The game has been named ‘OutRun Online Arcade’ and will be coming in early 2009. The game is going to feature fifteen tracks for players to “rediscover” and the ability to race five other opponents online.

The game will also be featuring OutRun Mode, Heart Attack Mode and, of course, time attack mode. Trophy support has been confirmed, as well as voice chat and leaderboards. Something to look forward to in the New Year then, I expect we’ll here more on pricing and release dates then too.
