Electronic Arts announced today that
Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 08, featuring the breakthrough
new EA SPORTS GamerNet and Photo Game Face features,
is available in retail stores across Europe today under
the EA SPORTS brand. With the critically-acclaimed Tiger
Woods PGA TOUR franchise, gamers can put themselves
into the middle of the action, test their nerves and
skills against the best, and then share and compare
their shots with other players from around the world
in the most innovative iteration ever created.
With EA SPORTS GamerNet, an interactive
gaming hub that hosts user-created gameplay online,
every shot on every hole of a player's game is recorded.
From the opening drive to the final putt in the Playoffs
for the FedExCup, EA SPORTS GamerNet is capturing all
the shots that make, or break players rounds. With an
on-line connection, gamers can then upload their most
amazing -- and unthinkable -- performances on EA SPORTS
GamerNet and then earn points and bragging rights by
posting video clips for other gamers to play against
and by matching challenges set by others.
With Photo Game Face, players will now
be able to replicate themselves in the game, down to
the finest detail. By simply uploading real-life photographs,
players can create in-game characters that look exactly
like the real thing with no artistic skill required,
giving gamers the unique opportunity to go toe to toe
with the best golfers on the finest courses in the world.
EA SPORTS GamerNet and Photo Game Face are features
exclusive to the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment
system and PLAYSTATION3 computer entertainment system.
Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 08 also features
the PGA TOUR new Playoffs for the FedExCup, offering
gamers the thrill of the playoff chase by playing dream
rounds at Westchester Country Club, TPC Boston, Cog
Hill and East Lake. In addition to many of the top PGA
TOUR players, Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 08 also features
