EA Will Go Ahead with Tiger Woods Videogame, Hopefully with Some Modifications
Tiger Woods had a terrible holiday season, and has been dropped in recent weeks by AT&T, Accenture, and Gillette. But Electronic Arts isn't giving up on him, and say they'll release the "Tiger Woods PGA Tour Online" game in beta this month.
Woods is "still one of the greatest athletes in history," explained EA Sports President Peter Moore. It seems the logical move. Technically Incorrect makes the point that "it's not as though a Phil Mickelson video game would sell quite as well."
We hope there's more to it than that, though, and that Tiger Woods PGA Tour Online will take on some Grand Theft Auto elements. Golf's fun, but add chicks and car crashes and you've got a triathlon that should go over well.
