I'm looking forward to this one. I still enjoy Virtua Tennis 3 and I'm anxious to see how they improve the gameplay.

Is this on anybody else's radar? This will most likely be a release day purchase for me.

Looks like there wont be.  We are just about to start cutting wheat (week or so) so I am going to pick it and Tiger Woods 10 up after we are done.  Hot Shots Golf and MLB will keep me busy until then.

Just an FYI, once we leave to start cutting, I will permanently be moving to Perryton.  I will have to start ordering my games online or driving 45 miles in any of three different directions to the closest Walmart, Gamestop, etc.

Good luck with the move. I think you'll be fine ordering online from Amazon.com - they have a huge selection, free shipping and no tax. It'll be good for you to be away from a brick and mortar Gamestop store.

Only problem with Amazon is they can be a little wonky when shipping new release games.  Not that it really matters for me that much anymore. Heck, I plan to pick up TW10 and VT 2009 when FNR4 comes out (which is right around the end of wheat harvest).

I have really changed my gaming priorities. Have fun, stay offline because I really never enjoyed playing online, outside some of our hookups. Going back to running franchises and keeping that kind of stuff posted.
