Gran Turismo 5 & Virtua Tennis

On the first day of school, I'm hot for my Management teacher--ok I just made that whole thing up.

I'm keeping this pithy.

Gran Turismo 5 will have custom track creation (limited in scope however).  It will also have go-karts.  Cue the "blue shells" crap.  Anyway, I can tell that the devs really, really, really want this game to be good, but the delays are going to kill interest in this.  Is it going to be released November '10?  Maybe, maybe not, but I bet the delay will last as long as Brett Favre's career...  I can only wish them luck, really.  When are we gonna get Forza 4 anyway?

Yes, Virtua Tennis 4 announced for the Playstation 3 used with the PSMove controller.  Sound grand, we could use some more tennis games right about now.  I love it.  Anyway, it's still Sega's baby so you know it's gotta be good.  Hope it turns out ok, it better be good or I'm putting Sega on the bunsen burner again.

From the article:

But I guess we may have to wait to see if SEGA does announce if the game is going multi-platform. It does look promising though, because they haven't stated it as a "Playstation exclusive" . . . yet. Basically, I just don't want to spend £300 on a new console, an extra £100 or so on a couple of Move controllers and then about £2000 on a 3D TV to get the full Virtua Tennis 4 experience.

Yeah, that's about right--the PSMove and the Kinect are gonna bring in this whole new wave of gaming...  Think about Sega--the Sega CD and 32X come to mind adding "new life" to an existing console.  Well guess what--additional, expensive peripherals necessary to play a few games doesn't sound like a good idea.  Plus this whole motion control fad is getting old, although I'd prefer the PSMove to the Kinect or even the Wiimote depending on how good it turns out.  I know how everyone wants us to make the leap into "virtual reality" but I don't care--I JUST WANT GOOD VIDEO GAMES, PREFERRABLY SOME DAYTONA USA SEQUELS OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.  Although the irony in my statement is that we have Virtua Tennis/Fighter/Racing, oh haha.  Though I hope that Sonic Riders Kinect game turns out well.
