I had no idea this was being released so soon, it seems like they keep pushing the sports games release dates up and up each year.

that's a damn good deal. The wii is actually the preferred platform for this so 37.49 is nice.

Yeah I even checked to see what Amazon was selling it for before I posted and it was some where around msrp. Plus I think a bunch of us got those $40 gift cards so...

Is this just the masters and nothing else? I notice there are two TW games so I'm wondering. Seems like a total cashgrab to me.

I don't see two versions man. From what I've read, this is the first year that Augusta is included into the main game.

GTA V

Thank you for actually answering my question.. The other version I noticed is the "Collector's Edition" for $10 more. That version's cover looked more like the standard TW cover hence my confusion here. I thought EA was doing two releases here, similar to FIFA and FIFA World Cup/South Africa a while back

edit: This cover looks more like the standard edition than a CE. You wouldn't even really know the regular one was a TW game at first glance. I wonder if that's done intentionally to stray away from him

No prob, I don't think they'd be trying to stray away from the TW brand though, he's still the golfer with the most notoriety and brand recognition. I don't think we'll ever see a Rory McIlroy 2013 (thought Phil would be a viable #2 for the title).

Couldn't be more excited to play at The Masters. And for those golf fans - wonder if they'll have The Masters music!?

Yeah I don't see anyone really replacing tiger per se, just more of a title change to "PGA Tour 13" or something. I don't think it will actually happen (at least not anytime soon) but that regular edition cover just seems so strange to me. I understand having the Masters included is a big deal, but to make it the focus of the entire game;/cover/title while putting TW in small font at the bottom strikes me as odd.

Also Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12: The Masters is a mouthful lol

EA did that cover intentionally because of the whole Tiger drama - I heard on a sports radio show they're trying to somewhat distance the focus of the game away from him because of said issues.

Now playing:

:ps4: The Last of Us: Remastered, Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor

The CE is also PS3 exclusive I believe...only difference is 5 extra courses for 10 more dollars.

I haven't bought a Tiger Woods game in years but this one looks interesting to me. The Masters being in it is kind of a big deal to me. I think I may hold off until reviews/feedback from users before I spring for it though.

I believe people prefer the Wii version because in I believe 10 and 11 it came with courses on the disc that were sold as DLC for 360 and PS3. People also really seem to enjoy how the Wii version has controlled since Tiger Woods 10

whatever dude. if you can't immediately see how wii motion plus would affect a golf game, you're nuts. with wii motion plus, you're getting something close to a 1 to 1 swing. Get the chicken stick and you're as close to playing the Masters as any schlub will be.

This isnt "waggle to the left, waggle to the right". This is as close to golf as I've ever seen. The wii might not do motion well on a lot of things, but they absolutely nail it on TW.
