Press release :

2012 Edition Provides New Opportunity for Fans of All Ages To Experience Iconic Golf Course, Tournament
REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – January 4, 2011 – Electronic Arts Inc., (NASDAQ: ERTS) announced today a collaboration with Augusta National Golf Club and the Masters Tournament to feature one of the most revered tournaments in golf - the Masters - in Tiger Woods PGA TOUR® 12: The Masters®. For the first time in franchisehistory, players will be able to step onto the hallowed grounds of Augusta National, experience the rich history and tradition of the Masters Tournament and begin their own journey to capture the most sought-after prize in professional golf – the Green Jacket.

The Masters editionwill go on sale in North America on March 29 and worldwide on April 1, available on the Wii™, Xbox 360® and PlayStation®3 consoles, with support of the PlayStation® Move controller. The Masters and five additional courses will also be included in the Tiger Woods PGA TOUR® 12 Collector’s Edition, developed exclusively for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system.

“For more than a decade, the Masters Tournament has been the most requested and coveted feature for the Tiger Woods PGA TOUR franchise among our fans,” said Peter Moore, president of EA SPORTS™. “Pairing the number one golf video game franchise with the most prestigious golf tournament in the world is a perfect marriage and we’re thrilled to bring our fans this exciting opportunity to experience Augusta National Golf Club like never before.”

“Our sincere motivation is to draw an even greater audience to this wonderful sport and continue to inspire its growth by building off the success seen in previous versions of the Tiger Woods PGA TOUR franchise,” said Billy Payne, Chairman of Augusta National Golf Club and the Masters Tournament. “The beauty of Augusta National and the rich history of the Masters have inspired the dreams of golfers for generations. Three years of collaboration with EA SPORTS has resulted in a game we feel presents a truly authentic Masters experience. ”

"I am very happy and excited that the Masters Tournament is featured in the Tiger Woods PGA TOUR game," said Tiger Woods. "There are many new and unique elements in the game that will make everyone feel like they're really competing at Augusta National. This is great for the sport and will connect a new audience with the Masters, a tournament I've been fortunate to experience since 1995. Continually growing the visibility of golf is important to attracting newcomers to the sport, and I agree that showcasing the Masters Tournament in the game will bring an entirely new dimension to that approach."

New features and enhancements include:

Masters Moments – Play through memorable, historic moments as players try to measure up against some of the sport’s greatest legends.

Tiger at the Masters – Relive each of Tiger’s four wins at the Masters by attempting to equal or beat his scores in each round of the Tournament.

The Caddie Experience – Behind every great golfer is a trusted and reliable caddie. Players will have a caddie by their side on every swing, providing strategic advice, from shot selection to reading greens, helping them become a more successful golfer.

The Closest Thing to B eing There – For the first time ever, EA SPORTS™ utilized a new state-of-the art laser scanning technology at Augusta National Golf Club to laser scan every hole featured in the game. This will provide players with the most authentic digital representation of the Tournament and Par 3 courses. Every tree, every azalea and every undulation in every green was recreated down to the smallest detail.

Broadcast Presentation – Feel the emotion of every swing as called by the all-new commentary team of Jim Nantz and David Feherty, who headline a completely revamped TV broadcast presentation package.

Career Mode – The all-new career mode will closely mirror the journey of an amateur golfer’s rise through the ranks and chase the title of Masters champion.

New Players – Over 20 professional golfers to choose from, including Zach Johnson (2007 Masters Champion) and Bubba Watson (2010 Ryder Cup – Team USA).

Championship Courses – Take on the best of the best on sixteen of the world’s most celebrated courses, including Augusta National Golf Club, Royal Melbourne Golf Club (Australia), Atlanta Athletic Club, TPC San Antonio, St Andrews Links and Pebble Beach Golf Links.

And they STILL haven't changed the engine for it. Someone is going to make a golf game that eventually LOOKS real, and plays just as well, then EA will pull their finger out and improve it.

LOL, couldn't agree more. Who the hell is buying these damn golf games anyway? I LOVE golf, and with the lack on innovation in these titles, one game per console generation is all you need. Since there really isn't that much to change/improve with a simulated game of golf, the least they could do is create a gorgeous new engine that LOOKS beautiful. Give me that and some realistic ball physics, and I just MIGHT buy another TW game. This engine didn't even look good at the beginning of this console generation, now it looks really bland and cartoony. It's not like they are even modelling the entire course at once, they only model one hole at a time with some of the surrounding holes/scenery.

BTW, they are releasing these every 9 months now???
