EA Sports' Tiger Woods PGA Tour 13 is the latest game to get the limited-edition Xbox 360 treatment, with a console featuring cover athletes Tiger Woods and Rickie Fowler against the backdrop of a grayscale golf course. (You'd think there would be some green on the case -- this is a golf game, after all -- but I guess that would've clashed with Fowler's bright orange outfit.) Tiger Woods 13 might seem like an odd choice for a customized Xbox 360, but Microsoft is really pushing the game's Kinect integration.
Microsoft won't be selling this unit, however; instead, they're going to make you work for it in a photo contest. You'll have to dress up as a golfer and walk into a Best Buy with Tiger Woods 13 at its "Play It First" demo kiosk. Microsoft wants you to take a photo of yourself playing the game and send it to them, either via Twitter (with the hashtag #TW13BETTERWKINECT) or email (at tw13pgatour [at] hotmail [dot] com). The photo with the most creative golfing outfit wins. Embarrassing yourself for a chance at free stuff: that's pretty much America in a nutshell, isn't it?

This particular prize, at least, is truly special -- there's only one console available, and you can only get it by winning the contest, which runs from March 27 through March 29. The package is a 250 GB Kinect bundle, although the Kinect sensor itself is not customized with the Tiger Woods 13 art. More prizes are available through a Tiger Woods 13 Facebook app, including a trip for two to the 2012 PGA Players Championship in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL.
Break out your polos and kilts, folks, and check out the gallery below for two photos of the console.
