SEGA’s Q1 09 financial report was just released, and included in it were sales figures for Virtua Tennis and The Conduit.
Virtua Tennis 2009 (PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, PC) moved 790,000 units in the US since it’s June 9 release, and The Conduit (Wii) moved 150,000 units in the US since its June 23 release. The quarter officially ended for SEGA on June 30, so those figures for The Conduit constitute one week’s worth of sales.
Included in the report were the number of titles moved per console. Number listed next to each are in the thousands:
- PS3: 310
- Wii: 550
- Xbox 360: 200
- DS: 180
- PSP: 110
- PC: 20

According to SI, Sega has confirmed at a press event in London today that Virtua Tennis 09 will release 29th May for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The Wii version will release a little later in June.
Virtua Tennis 08 was great, so we’re up for this one. Expect more media at E3 next month.

Virtua Tennis 2009 has been pushed into June to give it a bit more polish.
This is according to Sega site administrator RubyEclipse who stated on the forums:
As you may have already noticed, VT2009 has now been pushed back to a June ship date. It’s kind of a bummer as I know everyone is looking forward to the game, but believe me when I say it’s almost always worth it to add an extra level of polish and make sure the game is top-notch, as opposed to shipping early with problems.
A new release date is expected to be announced soon. We’ll keep you posted.

Don’t call Scottish people English. They turn blue and start shouting about “freedom”. Sega learned this to its cost at the weekend, when the Sunday Mail realised Scot tennis player Andy Murray had been labelled English in Virtua Tennis 2009 and asked some north-o’-the-border patriots what they thought.
They pretty much didn’t like it.
“I couldn’t believe it when I saw this on YouTube,” said Murray fan Steve Johnstone.
“The BBC are always at pains to call Andy British, which is fair enough,” said Tartan Army spokesman Tam Coyle, “but this is a new low.
“You have to ask yourself what would be worse – Andy being deemed English or Tim Henman being made a Scot.”
Nothing could be worse than that, Tam.
Sega’s fixing the error. Thanks, Darkzero.

Sega said today that Virtua Tennis for Wii will have online modes just like the other versions, and, thanks to Wii MotionPlus, use of buttons is optional.
Which is the main reason Sega feels its tennis game will stand out from EA Grand Slam Tennis.
“I understand our competitors are using buttons?” said a Sega producer during a demo with Eurogamer.
Moreover, the game includes 100 percent of the content and modes included in the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 versions.
Game’s out in May. Thanks, GoNintendo.

Sega’s just put out the first trailer of Virtua Tennis 2009. It’s after the break.
There’s no in-game footage in there at all, unfortunately, although there’s a string of big names and a few character models to be going on with.
See for yourself. It’s out in May for Wii, 360 and PS3.

Sega just officially confirmed a Wii version of Virtua Tennis 2009.
There’s no mention of Wii MotionPlus support in the press release.
A Sega UK spokesperson has just told us that they’re unable to comment on game features beyond those listed in the press release.
A Wii MotionPlus logo is rumoured to appear on the game’s box art, making is the first officially confirmed third-party game to support Nintendo’s new motion tech if true.
Full thing after the break. The game releases in May, alongside all other versions.
