They DID do it for Wii, according to the latest Nintendo Power...AND it'll make use of the new Wii-Motion Plus accessory!

Why the bugger don't they do a version for the Wii? Don't they understand or something?

You have this great Wiimote that can be like holding a racquet in your hand. If they brought out a Virtua Tennis for the Wii with controls as good or better than Wii Sports tennis, the game would sell like hot cakes.

But no, they go ahead and release the same old gamepad button-mashing crap on the other three systems. Go figure.
