Virtua Tennis 4 on Kinect Probably Doesn't Look Like This

For some reason, I find trailers for Kinect games much more entertaining than I ever found Wii game trailers, though probably not in the way that Microsoft would want. They’re super goofy, always feature way more people than they need to, and in the case of this Virtua Tennis 4 trailer, borderline dishonest in their presentation of the actual Kinect product. I mean, seriously. Look at the snapshot above. That living room is way too small. Even if the Kinect could tell what was going on in that cramped space, those people would be slapping each other silly trying to play that game so close together.

Oh, right, the game. Yeah, assuming it works like it should, this would be the most robust controller-free tennis game to date, so keep an eye out for it. Hit the trailer for the jump.
