    Tennis games on PS4 ?

    Kinda surprised that there are no any tennis games on PS4. watching Roland Garros and now Wimbledon is around the corner made me wanna play tennis so badly. I was hoping to see something at E3 maybe from EA or something but was so disappointed. Anyone else a Tennis fan ?

    I haven't played a Tennis game in years. It was either Top Spin or Virtua Tennis, however there hasn't really been a proper Tennis game since 2011 which is a shame.

    Tennis is one of the few sports where the women are as high profile as the men.

    I play tennis in real life and I think it is pretty hard (if not impossible) to put the tennis feeling into a video game.

    I used to play a tennis game back then on Game Boy, which was fun then. But expectations to a game have grown a lot over the years...

    So my recommendation would be: grab a racket and go out to play tennis yourself!

    I just wonder why companies don't pay much attention to this sport. I don't know what the sales of the previous games were but i'm sure a game like this will sell more than the likes of (The Show - NFL - NHL ) which don't have much fans outside US.

    As for this, I agree possibly with the NHL as it has the smallest fan base of the "major sports". MLB The Show is a system seller for baseball fans & a Sony exclusive. Its going nowhere. All but running its competitor into the ground(MLB 2k). Baseball is an international sport, as it has a large amount of fans in Japan, Canada, Mexico and tons of South American countries. Going back to Hockey, The Canucks invented it. So it is very much their sport. We just adopted it much like them with the Toronto Bluejays. Not only that but in Russia, hockey is king. Its also well followed in Germany, Switzerland, Finland, Sweden etc. Now on to football, there are enough fans in the United States to justify them to not need an international audience, that is how big the NFL is here in the states. Its actually such a rabid fan base that we will buy games annually with basically no improvements from year to year aside from player ratings! Though Madden 15 looks a lot better. Anyways...

    Hopefully they bring back Top Spin for the Ps4, just won't be anytime soon :\

    Problem with buying a Tennis game on PS3 is i don't think they will still be popular Online wise.

    If there are playstation tennis gaming fans, they are playing on either Top Spin 4 or Grand Slam Tennis 2. As its the lastest available options. I'm sure the numbers are low, but even the utterly hacked apart Red Dead Redemption online they still have significant traffic on the servers.

    Virtua tennis on dreamcast is still king far as tennis games go. I've never spent as much time as i did on that game. Top spin on xbox (and later other platforms) also managed to establish itself reasonably well. But in recent years, they've dried up. The thing is, ea doesn't do tennis games. If ea did them, you'd be seeing a new tennis game out every year, even if it meant in typical ea fashion little to no improvement over last year.

    Well, the market is empty now and someone should fill it.
