Take on the world’s greatest tennis stars on any court surface worldwide; with newly added players and improvements to the game’s AI, Virtua Tennis 3 has upped the challenge to becoming the top seed of the tennis world. In Career Mode, gamers will travel the world and take on the biggest stars of the tennis world. Improvements to the Player Creation Mode allow gamers to customise their own tennis star with increased detail like never before.

"With the implementation of 1080p capabilities on the Xbox 360, players will experience a new level of visual intensity and athletic drama played out on the court through a wide range of varied and realistic animations and dynamic cloth physics," said Scott A. Steinberg, Vice President of Marketing, SEGA of America, Inc. "Virtua Tennis 3 is a must-have for fans and newcomers to the series due to its great pick-up-and-play ability, life-like details, and incredible physics. Now with unique Xbox Live play, Virtua Tennis 3 has once again pushed the boundaries to redefine what a great multiplayer video game should be."

Supporting the highest digital video standard available, each of the 20 top-ranked tennis athletes featured in Virtua Tennis 3 appear even more realistic and the court environments deliver a newfound richness in color and texture. The increased levels of detail can be seen in the spectators and backgrounds, and the smooth gameplay mechanics and movements of the players are just as fluid as ever.

The online gameplay for Virtua Tennis 3 consists of a number of features set to make the most of the Xbox Live network. Players can take part in Exhibition games or Tournaments in both Singles and Doubles matches across the Live network. The new VT:TV real-time spectator mode allows players to watch their friends or other top-ranked players compete in tournaments, adding more strategy when sizing up the next opponent.

"We're thrilled to be able to say that Virtua Tennis 3 will be coming to Xbox 360, showcasing an online experience with Xbox Live that you won't find on any other systems and spectacular 1080p graphics," said George Peckham, general manager, global third party publishing for the Interactive Entertainment Business, Microsoft. "Fun and easy to pick up and play, SEGA is hitting another ace with Virtua Tennis 3."
