EA welcomes very special guest at E3 2009
When it comes to the Wiixclusive Grand Slam Tennis, it's gonna be all about the Slams and the tennis greats who make them worth watching. In the same way, Electronic Arts shows that they know how to make their grand slam title worth watching now that they've brought a tennis great to Los Angeles, raising the bar for all special guests to show in the expo. Their special guest is none other than 14-time Grand Slam winner, Pete Sampras.
As Peter Moore was demo-ing the Wii MotionPlus-supported gameplay, he noted that tennis was the most requested sports game for Wii. That would most likely be the reason why they went as far as getting the four Slams into the game, as well as 23 licensed tennis stars, including the lovable Johnny-Mac. Moore was still demonstrating the gameplay to an eager audience when the serve-and-volley specialist came on stage and took the controller from Moore to give the game a taste of his mad skills.
So, how does this feel compared to the real Wimbledon? Moore asked Sampras. "This is easier," replied the tennis legend. Hopefully, not too easy though.
