  • Full Tiger Woods 13 Patch Details
    Posted April 19th, 2012 at 6:15 pm 14 Comments »
    Yesterday brought first news on the patch for Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13, set to arrive tomorrow, that will offer an alternative method of swinging with Kinect for Xbox 360. Now EA Sports has rolled out the complete list of fixes to expect. Problems with features such as GameFace, broken Live Weather, and general freezing issues appear to have gone unaddressed however. It's also unclear why only the 360 is getting this update right now and whether a similar one is in the pipeline for the PS...
  • Tiger Woods 13 Patch to Offer Alternate Method of Utilizing Kinect
    Posted April 18th, 2012 at 5:30 pm 23 Comments »
    In an update for Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 that will arrive on Friday EA Sports will be delivering the more traditional way to swing with Kinect for Xbox 360. Tiger 13 originally chose to go with a parallel stance to the TV rather than facing it directly while swinging - which in theory was to better capture the full body in the process. The patch will allow users to swing either way on the two lower difficulty levels whether standing to the side or swinging directly towards the screen. Kotaku...
  • Tiger Woods DLC Practices Proving Costly
    Posted April 5th, 2012 at 11:30 am 23 Comments »
    Often it takes more than consumer frustration for companies to take note that actions being taking are having an adverse effect on perception and ultimately sales. They may recognize declines but then not attribute it to the right factors. A recent example of that is NBA Live 10 which was a quality effort yet EA Sports attempted to completely reboot the series having completely misjudged the market which led to disastrous results. Sales weren't poor with Live 10 because of the response to th...

    Almost all of the sports titles to come out so far this year - UFC Undisputed 3, SSX, Grand Slam Tennis 2, and MLB 2K12 - have found themselves being offered at a discounted price at various retailers just weeks, and sometimes only days, after they released. Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 hit stores last week and already Amazon, Best Buy, and Gamestop have dropped the price on the standard versions as well as the Collector's Editions. Amazon has both standard versions (360 - PS3) for $50 and the...
  • Purchasing DLC Courses for Tiger Woods 13 on PS3 Causing Headaches and Lost Cash
    Posted March 28th, 2012 at 12:30 pm 9 Comments »
    While the 16 courses available as downloadable content for Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 can be had in any number of ways on the Xbox 360 they can't be purchased in the typical fashion over on the PS3. The courses aren't available on PSN/SEN to buy outright. Instead money has to be spent on buying enough in-game "coins" to obtain the courses. It's not about the inconvenience of the matter but rather how the available packs of "coins" don't equal to the costs of the DLC courses. That means some ...
  • DLC Course Prices Rise with Tiger Woods 13
    Posted March 27th, 2012 at 9:30 am 24 Comments »
    One important feature addition with Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 is the ability to secure rounds on downloadable content courses using "coins" earned in-game. It'll take some time to evaluate the rate "coins" are earned and how much time with DLC courses that will equate to but early indications are it will not be plentiful enough to significantly erode the value of the DLC and the potential revenue EA Sports expects to earn from it. Taking into account that some consumers may now attempt to a...
