None of the screenshots looked like shots during play, just replays and/or CGI movies. This would have been a super-cool hidden game for DOA3 though rather than a seperate purchase.

Finally, Tecmo learns how to appeal to the American gamer.

Anyone know if this is an actual game or just an ongoing real-time poly demo that you just watch?

Personally, I'd feel a little embarrassed playing this game ... They should advertise it with the slogan: "Now with MORE boobies!"

I could actually see this game doing well if it's developed correctly. If they implement a fun and easy-to-use control setup, it could be for the X-Box what Virtua Tennis was for the Dreamcast. Not to mention the fact that the girl player models will attract female players, as well as the lusty male gamers. Dead or Alive 3 looks fantastic so there's no reason to believe that the in-game graphics will be any less stunning for this game. The buying accessories feature seems kinda hokey but I'm sure girls will like it and I wouldn't be surprised if guys found a way to have a little fun with it too, going back to what James said about the boobies Posted Image

I don't know about women liking it that much. While I've known a few women who think characters like Lara Croft are cool, DOA Volleyball might look a bit too much like a beer commercial for them Posted Image Personally, while I think it's funny to see Tecmo expanding their DOA franchise in this direction, it still needs to be a good game for me to buy it, so we'll see how it turns out Posted Image

Regarding the graphics, while they might be prerendered, one thing to remember is that Microsoft discourages developers from doing prerendered stuff (most of the Xbox games that feature that kind of thing are ports). So the shots we've seen might very well be done using the game engine, especially considering how good DOA3 looked.

"Where are the thongs?"

They are in Outlaw Volleyball, from the makers of Outlaw Golf.

I don't think that there is any question that the screens are not prerendered, just whether or not they are pre-scripted non-gameplay. Given the lack of any HUD, it certainly looks like it's non-gameplay (but definitely not prerendered).

I'll defintely be getting this, if for no other reason that I'm a graphics sl*t, and no one makes an Xbox + HDTV look better than Team Ninja. Posted Image

Didn't one of the Tekken or Virtua Fighter titles from a few years back have some kind of built-in Volleyball hidden game?

That's great and all, but they are no DOA girls. Posted Image

Tekken 3 had a "Tekken Ball Mode" (or something like that) that was a pretty basic 2-D style volleyball game.

Did anyone get the idea from the screenshots that there is a hidden message on the volleyball itself? It has "DOAX" written on it presumably for Dead Or Alive Xtreme. However that "A" looks remarkably like an "R", Creating an interesting new word when sounded out phonetically. Posted Image Posted Image Posted Image

However, this game may actually superceed my hatred of Microsoft, and actually get me to buy an XBOX!

I saw some at my friend's house, and they are quite nice. Posted Image

I just downloaded a high quality version of the trailer and I might finally have to buy an X-BOX now. Posted Image Also, does anybody know the name of the song in the trailer? :b

"How Crazy Are You" by Meja, a Sweedish singer who is popular in Japan.

And yes, I went and found all that out myself after watching the trailer. She has a strangely compelling voice.
