Looking to pick up Tiger Woods 2008 but was wondering if anyone knew of any differences between the 360 and PS3 versions. Thanks.

Your best bet is to look on www.gamespot.com

They usually have reviews or comparisons between systems.

I would just like to point out that this game is far and away the most unforgiving TW game to date. You need to swing perfectly straight, or else you'll shank the ball pretty easily. That's what makes it a lot of fun too though, I think.

I will probably get it for 360. I play it solo most of the time so at least with 360 I will get achievements and feel like I am doing something. :D

If tradition holds, EA probably fucked over the PS3 version somehow. It could be in framerate and graphics (ala Madden 08) or in menus and loading (ala RB6).

I haven't seen this myself yet, but I hear TW08 Demo is available on the PS Store as of today, so you can check it out and see what it looks like.

I'm not sure if this is on both versions, but on the 360 the graphics in the distance are very choppy compared to everything that is closer in view, which I don't remember being an issue with 07. Also, the sky needs some touching up. When the camera is below the ball, pointing towards the sky as the ball is flying, the sky looks just awful. Dark blue squares surrounded by light blue and some clouds.

Everything else looks great, though. Especially the character models.

That's what I always wanted out of this game, make it more realistic. It has always been too easy to hit it straight.

Anyway, I bought it for the PS3. Haven't played yet though.

Another thing is the putting, the putt could be 23 feet, up 2 inches, and you set the putt to 20 feet and sail it past the hole. It's getting easier as my skills get higher, and so does the swinging, but it is still far from easy.

The main thing I want to see placed in the next versions of the game is something like Q school and Augusta, although I know Augusta will never ever happen.

shut up cunt.

And I bought the 360 version, looks good, accurate swings are a bitch. But supposedly there is a crash bug in the 360 version when doing the tiger challenges or some shit.

Yeah, on Henrietta Creamer. She's the top left boss in the honeycomb shaped Tiger Challenge. I don't know if there's a fix for it yet or not, but that would piss me off to no end, because it's one of the challenges you need to do to get to Tiger.

I like the wii version. Pushing buttons isn't golfing.

That's exactly my experience with TW07. I was hoping for a few more changes to this year's edition so I'm thinking of passing on 08 this year and holding out until Hot Shots Golf 5 comes out in October. I tried the demo from the Japan PSN and really like the new "true swing" input on Hot Shots.

Anyone able to get into Photo Game Face yet? It says it's up now at least, but then it says it's exceeded its maximum number of connections.
