John Daly's ProStroke Golf to challenge Woods on Move

PlayStation Move to host battle of the golfing greats

PlayStation Move set for golfing dual

Tiger Woods has had his crown as the world's number one golfer seriously rattled this year and now his title of gaming's golf supremo is set to be challenged as Gusto Games prepare to launch John Daly’s ProStroke Golf, the first golfing title to be created specifically for Sony’s upcoming PlayStation Move motion control system.

Whilst the latest Tiger Woods title from EA sports will feature Move compatibility, its foundation still lies in a standard controller game unlike the upcoming ProStroke title, due for release on October 8th, which has been designed with Move in mind.

Speaking on the Tiger Woods challenger, Gusto Games’ Derek Hartin, designer of ProStroke Golf, said: “A good swing is probably the single most important component in the entire game of golf. Professional golfers spend most of their lives trying to generate the perfect motion and the big challenge at Gusto Games over the course of developing John Daly’s ProStroke Golf has been to translate this key mechanic into something the end user can play with.

“From booming drives off the tee to delicate approach chips, Move has allowed us to see actual golf swings translated directly into the game. If your swing pulls to the right, that’s what will happen. If you don’t swing hard enough, you’ll drop short. The level of accuracy we can achieve just wouldn’t have been possible without the swing information we can pull from the Move”

As well as hitting the PS3 and Sony’s PlayStation Move peripheral, the new ProStroke Golf title will also be released for the Xbox 360 and as a PC game. For all the latest on the best upcoming game releases sign up to the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
