Hot Shots Tennis: Get A Grip – Available Now!

Chris Hinojosa-Miranda's Avatar Posted by Producer

Get out your brightest highlighter and draw a big circle around today’s date, Tuesday, June 29, 2010, aka The Best Day in PSP Tennis History.

This is the day that Hot Shots Tennis: Get a Grip (as a UMD or PSN download) makes its North American debut, and for the wallet-friendly price of $19.99!

That’s right, the wait is over… all your portable tennis needs are finally answered! Get ready to spend countless summer nights unlocking characters, costumes, courts and secret levels. Oh, the joy.

But I don’t have to sell you on this… you’ve already gotten a taste of the supremely awesome gameplay with the demo (released last week!) and your thumbs are sore from maxing out both your points and loyalty level. You’re gotten a glimpse into to endless (hyperbole!) rows of customization options. Your smash hits are unstoppable and you are ready to name your first child Emily (or Hugo, it’s up to you).

Fifteen new tennis Hot Shots; exotic locations and brand new courts (like the colorful World Television Studios); hundreds of matches and weeks worth of gameplay; a bajillion costume combinations and crazy outfits; fierce, in-your-face ad-hoc competitive and co-op multiplayer matches… is there a better way to spend your summer?

So it’s settled: head out (or click out) and pick up (or download) your very own copy of Hot Shots Tennis: Get a Grip before you go mad with envy and end up looking like this dude… sheesh… he definitely needs to Get a Grip.

Add Your Own

@ Mobius_124 I was thinking the same thing. they should of just made the move sports title into a hot shots game. at least it would have some brand name recognition

Wait a minute I can’t comprehend this, a new game for the PSP Go that looks fun and is $19.99?! Madness.

Can you please stop with the “Downloads must be the same price as Retail” policy. It’s killing downloadable sales. I refuse to pay the same price.

iTunes albums arn’t the same price as CD’s. Why are downloadable games the same price as UMD’s?

$19.99 is too pricey!?!? For a Hot Shots game?!?! I’ve put in over 100 hours into both Hot Shots: Golf on PS3 and PSP, I expect the same with this one. Thanks Sony!!

@#2 “$19.99? Too pricey.”

Are you high off of some unknown future drug!? I would have gladly paid $29.99 for this game. Some people just nag, nag, nag, about everything.

I honestly was looking forward to this game since the demo. But I don’t feel like buying into anything else until I’m given wnat I was promised on Playstation Plus.

Sample video and brief writeup playing HotShots tennis, multiplayer over the internet using AdHoc Party..

really wish the game had infrastructure mode multiplayer, but we just went adhoc party. The game is even better doubles with a friend.
