The Golf Club News Post

HB Studios has just announced cross platform sharing in The Golf Club. That means all users, regardless of platform, can share, play and download courses at launch.

The Golf Club was submitted to Microsoft and Sony about a week and a half ago and an official release date should be announced fairly soon.

When you create and publish a course it will immediately be available to all members of The Golf Club regardless of the system you’re playing on. There are no special steps either as the person creating the course or downloading courses. They will simply appear in the list in the exact same way as any other course!

The only difference is that names of the creators of courses not native to your current platform will be displayed as “TGC Member” – this is to conform to a number of privacy and parental control regulations on the various platforms.

The other consequence of this is that currently each platform will still be logging their own set of scorecards and can only play live against people from their own platform. In the future we will be investigating ways that we can facilitate cross-platform leaderboards or selected ghost data in a way that makes sense without revealing off-platform user identities – but it’s something that needs to be carefully considered so that it’s actually a good experience. This also means that Tours+Tournaments are restricted to those within your own platform.

Wow, that's some awesome news right there. I've been following this series through the threads here, it looks promising, but this cross platform sharing business is just awesome IMO.

It's a shame other games haven't done something similar with user created content.

This is absolutely awesome news. I wonder if this will open other cross platform options.

A major coup for HBS! This will significantly broaden the appeal of The Golf Game to fence sitters!!
