Xbox 360 video game of people playing table tennis. It was a bit odd, but really fun. You get to pick your "player," what they are wearing, and where you are playing—in a dank basement, or a huge stadium with crowds cheering you on. As you get the hang of the game you can aim and add spin, speed and power to your shots. Chasing after the ping-pong ball was always a bummer anyway. Soon you can play too when Table Tennis by Rockstar Games is released on 22 May 2006. Pre-order it for $TK from Amazon.
