Today's Amazon Deal of the Day is:

:ps3: Virtua Tennis 2009 $19.98

Hell of a deal I think. This game is relatively new.

Really tempted, since I had been on the fence about getting Top Spin 3 since that came out, but the reviews make it sound like Virtua Tennis 3 is better at less than $10 this week used at GameStop.

I figured out how to play Top Spin 3 and am having a blast with it. Most of the negative reviews are centered around the controls, but once you get it, it becomes more intuitive and in my opinion, more fun than the same ol' controls we've seen out of VT. TS3 is challenging no doubt, but pays off if you stick with it.

Have fun!

$17.50 at Amazon right now, so 4x is $70 ($100 with promo), while paying $79.92 ($71.93 with ECA). But if they lower the TIV before you put your trade-in in, or they decide to make sure you get it in 8 days, then it'd be a massive waste of time.

Haha. Right on the dot. Something I don't wanna risk for the extra $30. I don't think Amazon takes more than 8 days to get here.. hmm. Nonetheless, $20 for this game seems alright. Heard some good.. and bad things. :cold:

A huge VT fan here. Loved the first version on dreamcast.

Bought VT3 full price on xbox360. but got angry when target had it for cheap few weeks later.

I didn't care to look on this yr's version but since ps3 is now system of my choice,
I didn't hesitate to hit on it. Bought it alongside casino royale bluray for fsss.

Top Spin 3 is a much better game if you're looking for a true sim, but this is a good price on this if you like the more arcade game style.

Damn, I would have wanted this, I had a lot of fun with Virtua Tennis 3 (and have always enjoyed the series). Oh well, not like it will never be on sale again.

This game is horrible.

Go get Top Spin 3 if you want a realistic tennis game or Virtua Tennis 3 (which is far better than this newer one) if you just want an arcade game to play with friends.

I really liked 3 - what did they do to this version?

Ruined the career mode, for starters. You progress at a snail's pace, you can't level up your guy anymore, and the difficulty is absurdly easy. If you're unlucky, you'll also get hit with a glitch that gets your player stuck at a certain ranking and unable to continue moving up the ladder.

Then they broke the online play by hiking up the lag and numerous game-breaking glitches.

Sega hired a new developer for this one and they pretty much just took a dump all over the series.
