EA to stand by Tiger Woods

GI.Biz writes: "Electronic Arts is to stand by shamed golf star Tiger Woods, following the public apology made to his family over personal "transgressions".

Woods, who was the first golfer to hit the USD 1 billion career earnings mark three months ago, has been surrounded by a frenzy of speculation since he was admitted to hospital following a car accident outside his home in Florida at the weekend."

Of course they will. He helps them make way too much money for them to drop his contract.

Tiger Woods 12 Balance Board Swing Comparison

David Kenson writes "Tiger Woods 12 manages to squeeze out a few more improvements on Tiger Woods 11's already full rostrum of options. Like last year, MotionPlus allows the game to capture a one-to-one backwards and forwards stroke, but now it adds the Balance board into the swing equation for the first time."

He provides a comparison of the different version of Tiger on the Wii, which highlights the up-and-down nature of the EA franchise.

That's a very thorough look at the last five titles in the series as compared to the latest. I have to say that I'm occasionally addicted to golf games, although I prefer them on the arcade-y side (I loved Sensi Golf on the Amiga!). If I take the plunge again this will be really helpful!

There was a Seni-golf?!! Why did no one tell me about this!

holdmykidney4722d ago

Sensible Golf on the Amiga sold very badly and was considered a commercial failure, I believe; but, I thought it was an excellent title.

Not 100% sure about using the balance board. I suppose it isn't as vigorous as Raving Rabbids but the board isn't as stable as a golf course. Interesting use of the board though.

Noe this seems interesting...

Good grief... well I guess if I played golf this could be an amazing teaching tool. As I don't Ill have to play it with features all turned off if I want any hope of success. Still good for EA to at least be trying to make use of the Wii peripherals and iterating on a franchise on a console where most developers just pump out lazy ports.
