EA Tees Up Golf Club Peripherals for Wii

Posted by Brad Long

Living rooms, beware

With Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 due out in June, EA have announced that they are releasing a line of sports accessories for the Nintendo Wii, including realistic golf clubs for its Tiger Woods PGA Tour series.

These golf clubs will stretch out to 36 inches, so if you're playing the Wii in your bedroom this may not be such a fantastic idea. There will also be tennis rackets for Grand Slam Tennis, and baseball bats for.. well, we guess you can pretend to hit tennis balls with it for now. All of these peripherals will attach directly to the Remote, and some will even include Wii MotionPlus support, which is definitely a bonus.

We have no real announcement as of yet when they'll be released, though you can expect them around June, when the new PGA title will be released.

WOW...MORE. Yes, that is what we need, more peripherals that add nothing to gameplay.

I love how CoursFace made a comment, and then pixelman's avatar is a walrus, which reminds me of a seal xD

If you put the pieces together, you'll laugh =)

Wait... so are they really sticking with Tiger for the franchise? I'm surprised, if so. I don't necessarily disagree with that decision, but it's risky for some of their potential market.

A port of the arcade version of Joe & Mac is coming to the Wii soon as part of the Data East Collection. Maybe if it's popular, they'll release it on the VC, and then make a new game along the lines of the "rebirth" games.

If they have built-in motion plus then they'll be worthwhile, otherwise I think there's a ton of other companies that have milked the clip-on Wii peripheral market dry...

Peripherals are lame. They don't help or add realism. Nothing compares to swinging a weighted club, but the Wii is not capable of mimicking true motion in real time.

On the Tiger note, EA would be completely foolish to drop Tiger. Without him the PGA doesn't even exist. Don't believe me? Ask him how much more his offers to come play a tourney are now compared to before "the incident". Nobody's gonna buy Vijay's golf and this is coming from a Vijay fan! lol
