Virtua Tennis 3 on PSP is exactly like the console version, only smaller.

SEGA's Virtua Tennis 3 could be the most accurate console-to-PSP port that seen so far. In fact, if you were to play it alongside the PS3 version (which IGN have in-house and previewed last week), it would be difficult to tell the difference between the two. Impossible as that may sound, it's because of the PlayStation Portable's small LCD screen -- it keeps the resolution and detail discrepancies from being immediately noticeable (they are there; they're just hard to spot.)

But when IGN say that Virtua Tennis 3 is an accurate port, it isn't in reference to the visuals. No, what it really means is that the game's PSP content is identical across the board. In fact, some could say that the handheld version is actually bigger than its PS3 counterpart because it allows people on four different machines to play each other (via ad hoc). Without an online feature, you can't do that on Sony's next-gen system.

The story is too old to be commented.

...is missing. That's why i won't buy this game. Online gaming is very important to me and extends the gameplay a lot. I can't forgive Sega for not integrating an online feature. it's just sad...

I always like the Virtua Tennis. Can anyone say Dreamcast ^^. Even though there is no online mode me thinks I will rather enjoy this game on the PS3. Who knows though I like to waste money for some reason so in the end I might get it for 360 too for Live action lol
