The movie gives some indication as to how the game plays, although we have to say the human character looks a little out of place. The four shots also show some features we haven't seen before, such as a rainstorm and a snowy mountain with a
Virtua Tennis 3 for PlayStation 3 may not include an online multiplayer mode, after Sony failed to provide the game's developer with the right specs to make network matches possible, according to producer Mie Kumagi.
This would make Sega's tennis sim the second game that could potentially drop its online gaming features for PS3. Last week it was rumored that Tony Hawk's Project 8 was having the same problem, with Neversoft claiming it did not receive Sony's networking specs in time to

Sega has revealed a trailer of its forthcoming next gen beat-'em-up Virtua Fighter 5, which will be released for PlayStation 3 next spring.

We've been showing static screens of it for months now, but today we're finally able to bring you a glimpse of Virtua Fighter 5 in motion. The new trailer, just unleashed by publisher Sega, is the best look we've had of the martial-arts fighter so far (aside from the Japanese arcade machine, anyway).
