    That is something I can safely say nobody would have predicted. It isn't something I would have thought I would be interested in but I am kinda intrigued as to how they pull it off.

    More info can be found here.

    UPDATE: Click here for the trailer

    well its the one type of game that hasn't been done well (if at all?!), and is great fun to play in real life. If anyone can pull it off, Rockstar can... I think...

    That's true, table tenis games have been only made in flash format I think. Now all we need is a handball game. \\:o/

    i wonder if theres going to be "bullet time" effect in the game. yeah if its just plain ping pong then i dont think its gonna sell much, maybe get some lawsuits off their back for awhile.

    Is this the result of GTA and "Bully" being branded as scum-of-the-earth by pretty much everybody who doesn't play computer games? Will the next GTA be "GTA: Asda Car-Park"? God knows, but I won't be buying this. It's bad enough that there's pool games when you've got a pool table in your local pub, but table tennis? I wouldn't even want to play the real one, much less a virtual one. Pong is infinitely more appealing.

    I'm hoping it's a HUGE joke on Rockstar's part, and that it turns out that Table Tennis is a hidden game in GTA4.

    "In addition to the basic controls, the right bumper will give each character a more advanced strike using a Focus Shot, which causes the game to go into a slow motion, bullet-time mode."

    EDIT: Dead Man beat me to it by seconds :) The below trailer is the same as Dead Mans.

    First trailer available over at xboxyde.com.

    Click here for the trailer

    I have to say it looks really impressive, the character models are superb. The fact that it will be released at a low price is also good to see, £29.99 is the predicted release price.

    Well Table Tennis is a very simplistic game so im glad they are not being rip off merchants and not slapping a £49.99 price tag on this!!

    Ok you have a point, but remove the word "table" and you have Tennis! Yet Topspin 2 is a full price game, and you could argue that game is just as simplistic.

    The reason Table Tennis is cheaper is that the career mode isn't very deep according to early reports. To me it is irrelevant whether the game is simplistic or not, its about value for money - and Rockstar seem to be recognising this fact.

    Ok lets all rally round 2K sports and tell them to drop the price of Top Spin 2 :) im sure we will get nothing but Sweet FA from them...

    And what happened to EA Dropping the price of its games to £39.99?

    The reason why the XB360 games are so high is because they have no competition. Heard of the term, make hay while the sun shines? Till the PS3 comes along, MS and reatiler will revel in the fact that the games are over 40 quid, when PS3 gets launched expect MS to announce some sort of PRICE CUT to software, thus undercutting Sony in games and Hardware department.

    As for the game, I aint sure, I think I would wait for a demo to play, then decide. But it is a good decision to release it at a budget price. I picked up Topsin for 40 quid, so for me I'm happy enough with that.

    this game has me hooked.

    the online mode is excellent.

    one player game is weak, but the multiplayer is good.

    its fun when u first play the game, then you find out how to manipulate the shots and it gets very deep. it will take sometime to master.
