De Bakker vs.Anderson, I see this as being a big task for De Bakker. I prefer De Bakker, but I think Anderson is stronger.

Just did a search for "Top Spin 5 News" and "top spin 5 release date", both came back with similar results, mostly nothing.

Top Spin 4 freezes your Xbox 360 on the Ball Toss

Here is something that worked for me. If you are unable to connect to the Top Spin 4 servers or your Xbox 360 console freezes as your player tosses the ball up to serve.

From within your Xbox 360 console, go to your system preferences and write down the IP address of your Xbox 360 console. Next log into your router and add your consoles IP address to the DMZ section of your router. If your router does not have a DMZ section, add the IP address to the virtual servers area with the following ports.

Xbox Live requires the following ports to be open:

Port 88 (UDP)
Port 3074 (UDP and TCP)
Port 53 (UDP and TCP)
Port 80 (TCP)

This may not fix the fact that we are unable to connect to the Top Spin 4 servers. However, we can still play the game, just not having the Top Spin 4 servers to connect to just takes that smooth connection away. So to avoid freezing take a little more time between serving to help avoid lagging and ultimately freezing.

Even if you still have the freezing, because you added the XBL ports you will notice your console now connects to any game with an Open NAT, meaning you will now be more visible for future matchmaking. Try it with Call of Duty.

Enjoy!

The Australian Open is a scorcher each year. The last few days the temperature has varied from the high 90's to 111 F. This is why we've seen player after player fall to the heat of Melbourne Australia.
