Ever played virtual golf games on the Nintendo Wii or Playstation Move and wished you had a real club to practice with? With CTA Digital’s latest creation, players can now experience the full weight and feel of handling a real golf club that is compatible with all golf games on the Wii and Move. The Universal Virtual Golf Set is an excellent addition to any golf enthusiast’s collection and will take you one step closer to the real thing.
Popular golf games such as Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 and Jon Daly’s ProStroke Golf were lacking one thing: compatibility with an actual club you could swing and practice with. While most golf and video game enthusiasts had a set of clubs and a Wii or Playstation console at home, there was no way to reconcile the two. However, thanks to the Universal Virtual Golf Set, players can now take their clubs and practice on their game consoles, making the experience more realistic.
The Universal Virtual Golf Set is a small attachment casing that can hold a Wii remote or Playstation Move controller and is then clipped on to the shaft of any golf club. There is a conveniently placed trigger that functions as the B button on the Wii or the T button on the Move which players can easily press while holding the club in a traditional golfer’s grip, ensuring that nothing messes up the swing. Once the application is fastened to a club, player’s can fire up their favorite golf game on the Wii or Playstation console, and the motion sensors will now be responsive to the real-life golf swing.
The Universal Virtual Golf Set also takes this a step further by including in its purchase a golf ball attached to a swivel placed on a 13 x 14 inch practice mat with artificial turf. When you swing away, the golf ball provides a visual target, and you don’t have to give chase after you hit it since the attached swivel just makes the ball rotate in a set position.
The Universal Virtual Golf Set takes things to a whole new level for golf and video game aficionados. It’s the next best thing to actually getting on the green, all without the hassles of expensive club membership fees and lugging around that heavy golf bag.
Although it doesn’t need mentioning, players should bear in mind that the actual golf clubs are not included in the purchase. The Universal Virtual Golf Set is just a casing that would hold the Wii remote or Playstation Move controller and attach it to the shaft of a golf club to enable interactivity with the video game console’s motion sensors. If you don’t already have a set of clubs at home, this device is basically useless.
Furthermore, golf is meant to be an outdoor activity. Players shouldn’t get carried away with swinging a golf club indoors, especially in cramped quarters, as breaking nearby objects is a real threat, or worse, injuring a family member who inadvertently walks in on your swing.
Still, for those looking to practice their game without the hassle of driving to the green, the Universal Virtual Golf Set is a good purchase
The Universal Virtual Golf Set requires ownership of a Nintendo Wii or Playstation Move, a golf club, and a video game of the golf genre such as Tiger Woods PGA Tour 11 or Jon Daly’s ProStroke Golf in order to function properly. It also comes with a practice mat with a rotating golf ball.
The Universal Virtual Golf Set is currently the best option for those who want to practice their putting, driving, and chipping skills without having to go to an actual golf range. The Universal Virtual Golf Set is compatible with all golf games on the Nintendo Wii or Playstation Move and will provide a more realistic experience for these games. Nothing beats real-life golf, but for those who just want to relax at home, the Universal Virtual Golf Set will bring the feel of the golf range to them. Just be careful in swinging that 3 wood near your television set.
