Take it from Forrest Gump: Table tennis is a serious sport. Haven’t you seen the movie Balls of Fury? Right. Anyway, seen down south is a lovely Japanese sportswoman getting a serious workout from virtual table tennis. Brought to you by the people from Happinet and sporting the epic title “Go with the Rhythm! Hyper Ping Pong!”, the virtual sport compels focused gameplay that has a huge handicap. What handicap?

Happinet’s latest doesn’t come out till October and pricing is kinda cheap at just $24. If your table tennis game is lightyears better than anyone else’s, Hyper Ping Pong might be the challenge you’re looking for.
