Ping Pongin’ like a Rockstar


Today I had the chance to play Rockstar’s Table Tennis game. And let me tell you, it is fuu-un! For anyone that says Rockstar can’t make beautiful games, wait’ll you get a load of the 30,000 polygon characters, and the wooden floors with reflection and scuff marks. The cloth animation is freaking amazing, and zooming in on character faces reveals every pore, and the actual table reflected in their eyeballs.
 
I am SO getting this game when it comes out after E3. At 39.95, I may pick up two copies just so I can make my friends play with me. When this sucker hits Xbox Live–I will be owning!

  1. I wonder if they will have like ESPN Broadcasters doing the play-by-play.

    Little paddles were never coolerer.

    I will definately get this, but I’m hoping for two versions; E and M.  Come on, how could would it be to have a sort of "Dead or Alive PingPong?"
     
    The pix look very cool and while I’m not a tennis player I do love playing it on the table.

    Let me pick my ‘custom’ ping-pong ball design and you will feel the wrath of the Pong master!  You just hope and pray they do not come out with bumper pool.
