SCEA Associate Producer Chris Hinojosa-Miranda shared the following via PS Blog today:
Happy Friday Hot Shots Golfers! It's been a while since our last HSG post, but we've been busy testing new features, new costumes and some very special items for a holiday surprise!
As you might have noticed, we've started to roll out some new costumes for the wonderful cast of Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds. The first batch was a hit, but with the second batch we wanted to throw in a little something extra.
Something that had a little more kick. Something that could be heard above the chatter... something like VOICE CHAT.
Yes, your eyes do not deceive (and pretty soon your ears, too): the Clap Hanz team has been arduously devoting their time to make sure that Voice Chat, a feature you the fans have been asking for, was flawlessly implemented into Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds.
So now all users, for the low price of FREE, will be able to enjoy a friendly tit-for-tat with their fellow Match Mode players. Simply download the most recent Hot Shots Golf update (available now through any interwebs connections near you), go online and start chatting away with your fellow golfers.
I envision it to be something like this
P1: Nice putt
P2: Why thank you
P3: Yes indeed, that was a great putt
P1: I've been practicing offline
P4: Who here has some Grey Poupon?
I know that most of you have gotten the full HSG:OoB experience, but for those of you that have not, its very simple:
1. Make sure your PS3 is connected to the internet
2. Log-in with your valid PSN account
3. Boot up Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds
4. Go online
5. Watch the Hot Shots Golf online goodness stream its way into your PS3 via internet magic!
Of course, outside of the Voice Chat feature (something you've long been waiting for), we also have some new costumes for Sonia, Kate, Felipe, Bloom and Suzuki lined up for you. More PlayStation 3 News...
