Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational coming to PS3

More Hot Shots Golf on PlayStation 3, even if it's a game fans will have experienced already on PS Vita, is a good thing. Ideal? Probably not. But still good! 2012's Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational will find its way to PS...

Labyrinth Legends going free for PlayStation Plus photo
Labyrinth Legends going free for PlayStation Plus
by Jordan Devore

Labyrinth Legends is an overhead action-adventure game from prolific PlayStation Network developer Creat Studios (Mushroom Wars, Cuboid) that will join PlayStation Plus' Instant Game Collection tomorrow. This is exactly the type of game I would willingly try for free and hey, if I like it enough to spend more time, that's terrific.

As for Hot Shots Golf, the Out of Bounds Complete Collection with add-ons like God of War's Kratos as a playable character is set to go on sale this week. The discounted pricing is $14.99 (and $8.99 for PS Plus folks), down from the regular charge of $24.99. Highly recommend getting this, even if you don't normally go for golf games. Zombie  Driver HD will also be on sale for $7.99 / $5.99 for Plus as of tomorrow.

TGS: I took on a booth girl at Hot Shots Golf 6 and lost photo
TGS: I took on a booth girl at Hot Shots Golf 6 and lost
by Dale North

Look, I'm pretty good at videogame golf. I'm a seasoned veteran when it comes to Korean golf MMO Pangya, but I'm not half bad at Hot Shots Golf either. I've been an avid player of the series for 15 years now, so I'd like to think I'm pretty skilled at it. In fact, I've spent so much time with the latest in the series, Hot Shots Golf World Invitational on the PlayStation Vita, that I invite competition with confidence. But when I took on a Sony booth attendant at a 9-hole match of the PS3 version of this game today at Tokyo Game Show, I lost miserably. 

I'm not sure if her adorable looks and sweet voice caught me off guard or something, but I was not at the top of my game today. I had no good excuse, as Minna no Golf 6 for the PS3 plays exactly like last year's Vita original, with the exact same button and stick mapping copied to the DualShock controller. Timing and controls are a perfect match, which should of had me feeling right at home. Instead, I was right in the bunkers.

Review: Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational photo
Review: Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational
by Dale North

Clap Hanz' Hot Shots Golf series and Sony game system launches go hand in hand, and for most gamers they serve as a nice launch title, holding them over until something bigger and better comes along. But, if you're a fellow golf game freak, Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational is your 'bigger and better' game. In fact, as far as golf games go, this one is probably the best.

Hot Shots Golf: World Invitational might come on a tiny little cartridge, but it's a huge game. There's a large singe-player portion with challenge and stroke modes, Ad Hoc play for up to eight players, Infrastructure play for 30 people, and a really great Internet mode that puts you up against everyone else in the world on the same course. With tons of courses, characters, items, and play style options, this launch game is likely to stay in your Vita for a very long time. If you're anything like me, I'd recommend getting the digital version to always have it at the ready.

Check out my hot shot reel for Hot Shots Golf on Vita

I'm not good at much. I've been making music and playing piano for more than 30 years, so I'd like to think I'm okay at that. And not to toot my own horn, but I know my way around a kitchen. But beyond these things I'm near ...
