Much like the star it's named for, it seems the Tiger Woods PGA Tou
r franchise isn't adverse to trying new things. EA has announced that the next iteration, Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11
, will support the PlayStation Move motion controller to "give gamers an authentic interactive swing experience."
There aren't any other details about Move implementation at the moment, but the game is slated for release on June 8 -- well before Sony's motion controller's projected
fall release. (And before you ask, no mention has been made of support for Microsoft's Project Natal.)
It may be less flashy, but series fans may be interested to hear the game will also feature the Ryder Cup, allowing for two 12-man teams to face off against each other.
We say 12-man, but we guess it could be 12 women against 12 men, right? Heck, maybe even 12 women against one man. Can you imagine, one guy trying to keep up with all those women? We sure can't.
Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11
will be available on June 8 for Wii (with MotionPlus support), Xbox 360, PS3 and iPhone.
Changed "PlayStation Motion Controller" references to "PlayStation Move," the now official
name for Sony's device.
[Editor's Note: EA's press release only included a box art asset for the Xbox 360 version
. Go figure.]
