If you can make it fun, then yes it can. Vollyball isn''t that popular, so you''ll have to do better then a game of comprable quality in a different sport. Honestly, I most likely wouldn''t be interested.

Doesn''t anybody remember Super Spike V-Ball for the NES? Great game!

Volleyball sims aren''t popular here because volleyball isn''t popular. The only reason there are soccer sims every year is because of the huge international audience for it; volleyball is more of a niche sport.

Hey, there''s no handball, javelin, pole vault, long distance or synchronized swimming sims either (with the exception of Konami''s Winter Games, or something like that, and the classic Track and Field).

You want it, you make it.

there is always ther potential o high sell alue. I don''t think these sport games sell much which is why they release so many by the same companioes using the same graphics. SO maybe you''ll have less than the little sell value or more than the little sell value, overall I odn''t think sport games are worth making because you can just go out and play sports andway, but you can''t just go out into a secluded mansion and blow heads of zombies everyday.

You''re obviously not familiar with the generally unhealthy pallor of (die-hard) video game players. Plus, in a sports video game you can do spectacularly athletic or skillful things that you can''t do in real life.

Case in point: I haven''t dunked a basketball in 3 years. Thank God for NBA Live, much as it sucks.
