New Tiger Woods Game Will Not Be On Wii

New Tiger Woods Game Will Not Be On Wii
 
 

The Tiger Woods video game franchise is pretty much the perfect example of a franchise that lives in every single video game platform. At least, it used to be.

EA Sports has confirmed it will not bring the next Tiger Woods title to the Wii.

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 will instead only be released on the PS3 and Xbox 360.

"There is no Wii version planned for Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 13 or Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 13: The Masters Collector’s Edition. We decided to focus on the HD platforms and take advantage of the robust online communities of Xbox and Sony PS3 given the new online and social features in this year’s game. There have been significant strides in motion gaming through the release of Kinect and PlayStation Move and we believe fans will enjoy the true-to-life golf swing created by these peripherals," EA explained in a statement.

It's an ironic twist because the Wii was heralded as the future of the Tiger Woods franchise back in the day, due to its motion controls that added a more lifelike experience to the game.

But now, Playstation Move and Xbox Kinect are much more sophisticated, and the Wii's competitors have much stronger online connectivity options.

This is a huge blow to Nintendo, not because Tiger Woods was an essential part of the Wii's success, but because this is a symbolic sign of how out-of-date the Wii has become.

The Wii U hopes to bring Nintendo back to the forefront; it will apparently have a more powerful processor than the Xbox 360 or PS3. But for now, this is not a good sign for Nintendo.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
