Many gamers are still scratching their heads over Rockstar's announcement of Table Tennis for the Xbox 360. Further evidence that the developer, best known for its controversial Grand Theft Auto series, isn't pulling an elaborate joke on gamers comes with the launch of the official Web site for Table Tennis. Visitors to the site can get the latest info on the game, as well as check out some profiles of the game's 11 players, watch some video of the game in action, and check out some high-res screenshots. Table Tennis has not yet been rated and will retail for $39.99 when it is released on May 23.

Hmmmm im not convinced...fast paced it might be,but will you get the same amount of control as you get in Topspin 2..?? Plus the world of table tennis is hardly exciting....wonder if they have put in a playable forrest Gump char..??lol

Feels like a kind of big step from GTA, but hey, give me the story line here as in GTA and I'm fine ;)

Knowing Rockstar, hopefully there'll be a fun twist to the game, though, I'm sure there'll be because plain table tennis would get old. Plus, I wouldn't pay 60 bucks for it. I don't think I'd even spend 50$.

i can only wait to see all these rockstar-whores talking about how "good" the game is going to be just because it has rockstar's name attached to it, but you know damn well that if it was someone like acclaim releasing it and it had the same graphics that no one would care. this is probably just rockstar's attempt at getting away from their bad rep (it'll probably turn out to be really violent and stupid) for a bit, so i'm not going to buy it, i'll just try it out when my nephews buy it to be "cool" and "ironic".

Ya it has boring gameplay, you can really tell that since you've obviously played the game already. {SARCASM}

I hope it turns out as good as the impressions I've read. This is one my most anticipated games, especially with online play. Originality>sequels>ports.

This game will be okay, but I think that Love Sexy Ping Pong for PS2 will be the greatest ping pong game ever. Simple 2000, you can't beat that.
