Top Spin 2 & Top Spin for PS2

The E3 convention has just recently started, and already announced, Top Spin 2 is being made for the Xbox 360

The Top Spin and Amped licenses were acquired from Microsoft when Take-Two purchased the Utah-based developer responsible for the games. The studio, now called Indie Built, recently announced Top Spin for the PlayStation.

In Top Spin 2, gamers will be able to play as, with, or against 24 professional players, including Andy Roddick, James Blake, Roger Federer, and Maria Sharapova. A new create-a-player function using the new DigitalIdentity system allows gamers to customize characters' look, from physical features to wardrobe.

With the new high-definition technology of the 360, the graphics will see improvements in the players' animations, stadiums, and crowds. Top Spin 2 will also have new strokes, including all new risk shots.

And for PS2 owners....

Top Spin will be serving some heat on the PS2 this summer. The game has not yet been rated or priced.

Top Spin brings 16 of the top professional tennis players to the court in singles and doubles competition. The PS2 version includes Maria Sharapova, Venus Williams, Roger Federer, and more. There's no word on whether "tennis player" Anna Kournikova will return in the PS2 edition. Top Spin has a create-a-player career mode and will be the only online PS2 tennis game.

Re: Top Spin 2 & Top Spin for PS2

I think Top Spin 2 will also have Leyton Hewitt. Thats not a bad list of players though it would be nice if they could have more.

Re: Top Spin 2 & Top Spin for PS2

Why in the world do they have James Blake? He's never done anything in a major has only 1 title, isn't ranked high at all. Taylor Dent has done much better and Mary Fish at least made it to the finals of the Olympics. I don't think they want another American cause If they might as well put Ginepri, Morrison, Baker, etc in. The other players listed have all won at least 1 major and are ranked in the top 5.

Re: Top Spin 2 & Top Spin for PS2

They have him because he's more popular than the others and also because it's cheaper to get players to sign on that aren't top ranked pros.

I bought an Xbox just for Topspin and I'll buy an Xbox 360 just for Topspin 2.

Re: Top Spin 2 & Top Spin for PS2

I use my PS2 to play Smash Court Tennis Pro Tournament 2. Its a great game!!

I'm not afraid of anyone, but sometimes I'm afraid of myself.

Life it's a great game.
-Andre Agassi-

He was too good. I would suggest to his next opponent that he doesn't look to me for advice.

That's the list for TopSPin2. My guess is that TopSPin 2 for xbox 360= TopSPin for the PS2, maybe some slight differences or something. Anyways that's the 24 player roster for the xbox 360, some really SHIT players they have there, but overall nice selections imo.

Re: Top Spin 2 & Top Spin for PS2

Thats not a bad list at all, although I wish that instead of Mirnyi and Kuznetsov they had Nadal and Gasquet! Nadal would be incredibly awesome to play as. Imagine the topspin angles! PErhaps if he wins the French, the game designers will add him.
