Sports Champions Week: Disc Golf

Jeff Rubenstein's Avatar + Posted by Jeff Rubenstein on Sep 16, 2010 // Sr. Social Media Manager

I’ve played disc golf once before, and the course wasn’t anywhere near as nice as the one in Sports Champions.

After the rapid, manic action found in Gladiator Duel, an event like Disc Golf is a fun, relaxing way to wind down. That calmer place doesn’t mean that it doesn’t take full advantage of the PlayStation Move technology, however. Producer Jeremy Ray shows us why Sports Champions presents the best “frolfing” experience you’ve ever seen in a video game.



I particularly like how you’re not going through pre-determined motions – if you want to underhand toss your disc into the goal, you’re free to do it (and it’s a pretty good technique from 20 feet and under).

We wrap up Sports Champions week tomorrow with Table Tennis.

You know what is much cheaper and better than playing this on the PS3? Actually playing disc golf outside. Seriously how much does a disc cost, maybe five dollars? This kind of crap is bringing the industry down.

Why does the US PS Store Move Demo selection stink compared to EU?

The environments looks nice enough. I don’t get why all the reviewers seem to be complaining about a bland look.

I always complain that there are no frisbee-golf courses anywhere, and when there is one it’s all dirt and not a nice area.. now that problem is no more.

Been waiting for the move to come out for a year now and I can’t wait till the morning!!!! Is there going to be an online multiplayer version so we can create frisbee golf clubs, and go head to head with other teams?

Any chance that Sports Champions will get some DLC in the near future? I’d love to have a game where you try to throw a frisbee as a dog tries to run out and catch it. Maybe unlocking faster and more agile dogs as you progress or pass skill challenges.

Ha, Ken Gi??? A little to close to Ken Climo the 12 time world disc golf champ. I hope he is getting his paycheck for this.

Does a forehand throw fade off to the opposite direction as a backhand throw? In the video, the guy demoing the game throws a forehand and a backhand and they both seem to break in the same direction, which is really unrealistic for anyone who has played disc golf.

This is a big selling point for me, as all of the wii disc golf games have gotten this wrong, and it really takes a lot of the strategy out of the game, since in a real game you have to carefully choose backhand or forehand among many other factors when approaching a hole.
