Golden Tee Live utilizes real-time, wireless technologyÂ a development so radical, its creator is conducting an unprecedented limited test-run of 500 units in just 200 cities. Including ours!
The legendary virtual golf-game is already famous for state-of-the-art graphics, life-like courses, and unique online tournaments. Believe it: 20 million people play this game - and each year those 20 million players account for over $1 billion in revenue for locations and amusement operators. TheyÂre already queuing upÂ and counting down!
This time, the techno wizards at Incredible Technologies (IT) in Arlington Heights, Illinois have outdone themselves, pioneering multiple, mind-boggling innovations. Like partnering with Sprint so players can compete wirelessly coast-to-coast in real time. (Imagine: the excitement of a multi-player online experience, only life-sized!)
ThatÂs just for starters. By the time the test period ends players will be able to customize on-screen characters, choosing faces, clothes, and gear. Get this: for the first time women can choose a female golfer, too! And talk about blurring the line between reality and fantasy: gamers can purchase high-performance equipment, courtesy of Top Flite. These virtual clubs and balls can actually improve your game! And with every round you play, you can win a cash prize. IT is renowned for sponsoring Internet-connected monthly tournaments Â theyÂve awarded over $14 million dollars since 1996. With the new system, thereÂs no more waiting for a tournament to start. Every game can be a tournament game!
Still more: Run out of money? No problem! This is the first coin-op game to accept credit cards. And the console features a second monitor Â an interactive leaderboard, with live-action commentary from sports announcer, Jim Nantz, and pros Peter Jacobsen, Gary Player, Chris DiMarco, and Laura Diaz.
There are so many features your head will spin! But letÂs keep it simple: On December 21st at 7:00 p.m., a Golden Tee Live near you will spring to life and eager players in your area will be among the first in the world to take it for a test run. You have a rare chance to see it - donÂt miss it!
(Please note: Some features will not be active when the game goes live on December 21)
