ORIGINAL STORY: The PC version of Virtua Tennis 4 is to be removed from sale digitally on April 23, SEGA has announced.

Reasons for the game's imminent removal remain unclear, but may have something do with its Games For Windows Live requirement. We've checked in with SEGA to try and find out.

Nevertheless, if you've yet to pick it up ,you can grab it for 80 per cent off on Steam until it gets pulled, with the game reduced to just £2.99 for the next week.

Virtua Tennis 4 launched on PC and console in summer 2011.
