Sony has outed  Virtua Tennis 4 during its gamescom presser, and it’s compatible with PlayStation Move.

Announced in Cologne, Virtua Tennis 4 will also support 3D technology alongside Sony’s Move.

“Virtua Tennis 4 is a fantastic example of how our 3rd Party partners are seeing the potential not just in PlayStation Move, but also 3D,” said Simon Rutter, Senior Vice President, Sales & Marketing at SCEE. “The combination of both Move and 3D offers an entirely new gaming experience and one that has the potential to completely change how people interact with their entertainment. Virtua Tennis 4 shows how this technology can be implemented and we are very excited to be working with SEGA on this.”

“We have always strived to provide a tennis experience that is both true to the sport and great fun to play, and we are continuing to work with Sony to make this happen”, commented Gary Knight, Senior Vice President of Marketing at SEGA Europe and SEGA America. “With Virtua Tennis 4 being developed for PlayStation Move and featuring 3D technology, the boundaries of realism in sports video games are being pushed even further”.

The game will also include a host of additional features and the full player line-up to be revealed in the coming months.

Virtua Tennis 4 is slated for release in 2011 and will be available on PlayStation 3.

    Is this ps3 and move exclusive? (I don’t have a ps3 yet and I’m not touching Kinect at current price)

    VT2009 was a bit on the shit side tbh, Top Spin 3 was far superior in pretty much every way.

    I’d like to give this a go with move though. I have Grand Slam Tennis for the Wii with motion plus, and it’s decent fun to play, it’s just nothing like genuine tennis. You don’t really have to swing the remote, flicking your wrists gets better results, and it’s far too easy to win off the volley.

    The problem with most tennis games is the devs either don’t really have a good understanding of the game or have a hard time translating it to a controller, Top Spin 3 was very nearly perfect in its approach to gameplay imo.

    But what the hey, I can still play outside until it gets too cold and wet.
