No Hawk-Eye in Grand Slam Tennis 2

By Brenna Hillier, Friday, 20 January 2012 01:38 GMT

Grand Slam Tennis 2 producer Liam Miller doesn’t believe in faffing about with replays.

Miller was asked about the adjudication technology, which tracks and predicts the path of a ball to help rule on difficult umpiring calls in tennis and cricket during a presentation streamed to press and fans today.

“It’s not like we didn’t think about it putting it in,” he assured listeners. “But people want to play tennis. They want to hit the ball.

“They don’t wanna spend too much time looking at replays.”

Grand Slam tennis 2 arrives in Australian and New Zealand on February 9, Europe on february 10, and the US on February 14. It will launch on both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, with Move controls supported by the latter.
