Sega Corp. this week demonstrated Virtua Tennis 4 for the Playstation Vita at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles.

Virtua Tennis 4 held top touch-based controls in which users could tap to serve and swipe to return the ball.

In addition, users could tap the court surface to move the player, or use two fingers to swipe in a power return.

Each tap and swipe was accurate to the touch. Users could also deploy traditional analog and button controls, which felt solid.

The graphics engine was solid at 60 frames-per-second. Players and courts held console-like quality and detail.

The final game will include a full roster of tennis pros.

The PS Vita will include the dual analog sticks, a 5-inch multi-touch OLED display, 3G & GPS, front and rear touch panels, and a compass on three axes. It will utilize flash-memory game cards.

Hardware specifications include an ARM Cortex A9 4-core CPU, front camera, rear camera, built-in microphone, and Bluetooth 2.1.

The company will partner with AT&T to allow current customers to access Wi-Fi hotspots nationwide.

The PS Vita Party mode will allow users to chat with nearby owners. In addition, near will allow users to play with friends using their PSN ID.
