Been lazy about posting this since I read about it a few days ago… Everybody’s Golf World Tour and Hot Shots Golf Out of Bounds online service will be ending on Oct 31st 2013… Timing seems about right in accordance to the PlayStation 3 release of Everybody’s Golf 6.

Trivia… did you know that the servers are the same for the login server is the same for both versions of the game? So they are really just shutting down the grade tour and leaderboard servers. Though it will be Halloween for some when the servers are shut down, is there people who would like me to stream the last day of Everybody’s Golf World Tour Online?

Envisager made a post about it over at the Community Forums.

Not that I know the complete details regarding this, but Senidol tells me that it has already been released and the balls and clubs are also available.

Kazuma is not out yet but Lv.5 Clubs and Balls are available from the get go without the requirements to buy Lv.4 sets… This is a strange oversight by the producer or marketing department, as there is no reason to release them cheap if there is no requirement to buy any of the Lv.4 versions. I do think it is a good move to release it cheap, but maybe not allow the skipping of the sets all together. It brings down the overall complete costs to around 10 dollars less than a full retail game at the moment without the Lv.4 set.

Looks like the wait is over for all those wanting to play Everybody’s Hot Shots Golf World Invitational on the PlayStation 3… Other than being tipped off by Envisager over the last couple of days, we all knew it was going to release some time in these couple of months… Just now PlayStation Blogs of Europe and US have both posted and confirmed a release date which is expected early next week.

I’ll just leave the links here and you guys can go read about it there… I would like to see how the “Regular Updates” DLC will play out in the coming months. 😛

Let’s do a little FAQ for the game that doesn’t seem to be addressed on the blogs…

  • Will the PSVita Save transfer over to PS3?
  • Can I Cross-Play Game Rooms with my PSVita Friends?
  • Will my DLC Purchases from the PSVita work on the PS3?
  • Do I need an Online Pass?
    Yes, but on PS3 one account allows all accounts access Online.
  • Is there a box version?
  • Is there a discount for owning the PSVita version?
    No. It’s cheap anyway… 😉

Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds Complete Collection (PS3) which is the downloadable version of the PS3 title is on sale with a 64% Discount for PS Plus members (Regular Price: $24.99; PSN Sale Price: $14.99; PS Plus Price: $8.99).

I’m not sure how long the servers will be running for those games since in a couple of months or so, they will be bringing in the next version on PS3. It’s still a great deal if you either haven’t played the game or don’t care about Online or sold your physical copy awhile back but still enjoyed the game.

Looks to me they have finally got around to updating the store… Details from the blog point out the costs to purchase the Downloadable Content and it looks to be that each character will cost $0.99, with the courses going for $2.99 apiece. You’ll be able to grab the whole set for $11.99 and PlayStation Plus members will get 25% off that price which is $8.99.

Prices will vary for other regions but this is the update/news for Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational. Though for the full set that is pretty cheap compared to Japan. I guess they want you all to go back home to play…? Also not sure if I find the full set idea a good thing or not, as it makes it sound as if future updates may take even longer to come out or never come at all… sort of similar to how when a game is near it’s end they release a special update that lets you buy all the content in one shot.

Official news also points out the patch in more detail about Turn Based Challenge:

Players can now also set up 20 different parallel games at any given time. To avoid cheating, there are no re-dos, similar to Daily Tourneys. Short messages (like SMS) are also now enabled, as well as competitive score history between friends.

Additional gameplay updates include:

  • Four-player stroke mode enabled in the multiplayer rooms.
  • A slot mode added to the online/adhoc, enabling a slot machine style handicap system applied per hole to keep the game interesting in case there is an imbalance between player skills.
  • We’ve also added a new visual lobby in the online space, and tweaked the game balance a little bit.

With the assistance of the other members we have mostly covered what has been posted… Someone up there needs to get their work together, I mean even before the update this could have been posted or even added to the Online Message during a server login.

Strange no one mentioned this until today, I guess people really aren’t logging into the lobbies… Senidol just posted this:

I’ll head back to Starcraft 2. New units are all weird compared to when I last used them in the Beta. 😛

Turn-Based Challenge Mode is what they call it… I am not sure why the original translated to Multi-Versus Mode or what I could make sense of the naming at the time… Anyway that aside, HiddenAway has offered to share the screens and some details of the new feature.

That’s it for now… Since he needs someone to play against to actually take more pictures.

To show that the game is up to date with the latest Japanese updates Impact Zone size increased:

If you appreciate these images and details let HiddenAway know by following or mentioning them to show your appreciation. 🙂

Seems like they have finally got around to updating the International version of the game but is it too late? I hear that Grade Tours are pretty hard to get going and takes a lot of organisation to set up… even so there is an update that brings some new features not even available on the Minna no Golf 6 Vita.

The new feature the update adds is the Multi-Versus Mode that was mentioned originally during the release of the Japanese version that they would be working into the system.

Thanks to HiddenAway’s heads up and screenshot of this as I don’t have Everybody’s Golf or my PS Vita set up to play it anyway…

Along with the update comes the place holders in preparation for Download Content that has been available for Minna no Golf 6, though this patch maybe numbered lower than the Japanese version rest assured it likely is the same patch as the latest iterations. No PlayStation News has announced the DLC being available in the stores, so sit back and wait until the next PlayStation Store refresh.

Instead of adding the characters and courses one patch at a time, they have added all the characters and courses up to date in this one patch. Thus…

Update 1.05 includes:

  • Characters: Gloria, Erika and Kat from Gravity Rush.
  • Courses: Mt. Sakura Onsen C.C., Mar Cielo G.C. and Northen Fox C.C.
  • Turn-Based Challenge – The feature promised from the beginning for PS Vita.
  • Balance Updates. Courses Modified, Status and Character Performance Modified.

It appears in the Online Section. According to the instructions you can only play this mode with your PSN friends. So if you don’t have any, log into the lobbies and make some… Play some Grade Tours while you’re in there the servers needs you to have fun. 😛

Personal thoughts on this patch, it is nice that they are updating the game… seems it was poorly pushed out. It was as if they didn’t want us to know about it. There was no news and though the strange maintenance time was what gave it away it still doesn’t really help the main problem which is there is a lack of people playing online.

The new feature also adds to the problem by allowing people to play even though they aren’t logged into the lobbies online. Good and Bad… It’s great for Vita and 3G players just might make things worse for the Grade Touring Online community.

Also take note, the new update mentions the PlayStation 3 version in the scrolling menu text… Hint: PlayStation 3 version is coming. 😛

Finally the International version of Minna no Golf 6 is receiving the 1.04 treatment, which is the first major game changing patch for the game… the next one being 1.08 but might be another 2 or 3 months away.

Just a recap to what 1.04 brings to the game:

  • Online Mode Game Rooms
  • Online Mode Grade System/Tournaments
  • New Daily Tournament System – Weekly Tournament
  • New Daily Tournament Results and Ranking
  • Grade Specific Lobby Character Actions and Lobby Interactions

Saw this on the PlayStation Blog earlier but was out so didn’t bother posting it… It is also on discount if you already have PlayStation Plus subscription… This is out a lot earlier than I expected so I doubt there was any bug fixing or updates involved in changing the game for the better. 🙁
