Since, neither of my other posts were replied to, I'll try here..again. Are sponsorships included in Tiger Woods 09, or did they take it out of the series? I haven't lost a tournament, but no offers...finished She Sheng -44. I cant get a sponsor for that?

I have not seen any sponsorship offers in TW09....

Especially if they're not integrated into pro career mode.
I agree, that's a bit pricey for my tastes....

If there game were better I wouldn't mind paying. It takes a lot of work to put together these courses. I would also be afraid that even after buying the course I would have to jump through some hoops in the game to unlock it. That or pay another 200pts to play it immediately.

1. Fair enough.

2. You have no idea how much time and effort it takes to create these courses with the detail targets that EA has set for these courses. You are correct.

3. Nope. The courses are ready to play in any mode other than offline season mode.

Wasn't Firestone DLC for Tiger 08? So they release it again as DLC for 09 for 600 points?

Please.

I know it takes work and the courses are nice, but they are pretty much useless since they can't be used in the offline season mode.

No, it was not. The course was in 08 on the DVD, but for 09 it was rebuilt from the ground up using the new graphics engine. I do agree that 600 MS points is too steep for it though, especially for a course that was in TW08.....

They should do it like the old days of the PC game, 5 courses 20 bucks.

Right now they are charging 7.50 for one course. Yowzaa.

Comparing the amount of time and resources that the 360/PS3 courses take to create versus TW99/2000 courses that had 1/100th the detail and no 3D objects or dynamic environments is really an apples to oranges comparison. I do agree that $7.50 is a bit steep, but $5.00 would be a bargain.

anyone actually buy it?

I wish people would stop asking this, it will NEVER EVER happen......ever!

BTW i think there are many courses far better than the now heavily modified "Tiger Proofed" (destroyed) Augusta National. Cypress Point, Pine Valley, Royal Melbourne just to name a few would be a great addition to the TW franchise (if they get the gameplay up to scratch first!)
