In a recent interview with Digital Spy, Brent Nielsen (Executive Producer) spoke about the impact that the PS4’s extra processing power and enhanced memory will have on allowing the team to substantially improve the features of Tiger Woods PGA Tour 14.
It would seem to be a no-brainer that with extra hardware power the EA Games team will be able to provide fans of the series with a wide range of game enhancements, but the true focus is on delivering a greatly improved social components of the game. Nielsen commented on this by saying, “One of the big things we’ll be able to continue to push – in addition to graphics and physics as we’ll have more memory, more processing power, and things we can do to make it more realistic – is really push the social aspect of it.”
Let’s be honest, who doesn’t want to instantly share that perfect hole-in-one via any number of social media sites? Bringing a greater level of social interaction to the Tiger Woods PGA Tour community will certainly be a great step for the title and it will be interesting to see how the EA team manages to push this concept further by taking advantage of the PS4’s increased social media focus.
Nielsen went on to discuss why creating a greater sense of community is important:
“It looks like they’ll be giving us tools to be able to do that, so things like the chats, the Connected Tournaments and the arcs, just continuing to try and push people, because golf by nature is a social sport.”
