For Topspin 3, there's been a lot of speculation about why Nadal is only appearing on 1 version of the game. Here's the answer, it seems:

For people who want to know why Nadal is exclusively on PS3

In a recent e-mail to the 2K site:

"Unfortunately, this decision was out of 2K’s hands. Nadal was originally supposed to be in all Top Spin 3 versions and so I can understand why you are annoyed/upset. However in our defence, the reason why he’s only featured in the PS3 version is because, and I quote Nadal’s agent:

“Due to a possible relationship with an electronics corporation, it is Rafael Nadal's best interest to only be featured in "Top Spin 3" on Playstation 3”.

Hope that explains everything J
Let me know if you have any other questions.

Seems Nadal may be a PS3 fanboy :)

Still a little skeptical really as he's appeared in games on all 3 consoles before.

It probably has to do with money.

I don't think they are talking about "interest" as far as preference goes. I'm sure Nadal probably couldn't care less about PS3 vs Xbox etc.

Yeah, it's probably a deal with Sony or something. $$$ But who would base their buying decision of a new game/console if Nadal is in it or not?

Also, PS2 & 3 is what's most popular in Europe (where they don't have as many videogame XBOX nerds as in the states).

I think ps3 and 360 are both excellent, but overpriced.

We based our decision on Nadal being in it, because that was the player we wanted to play tennis as!

Good I don't want to see his face on my 360, probably will give it the red ring of death.
