Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 11 to
Feature Ryder Cup

Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 11 to
Support PlayStation 3 Motion Controller

Electronic Arts Inc. announced today
that one of the most prestigious tournaments in golf, The Ryder Cup, will be
featured in Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 11. In addition, Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 11 will
support Sony’s new PlayStation 3 Motion Controller to give gamers an authentic
interactive swing experience. The game will be available on June 8 on the Wii,
Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and iPhone platforms.

Gamers will select a team and square
off to try and bring home The Ryder Cup for their squad in Tiger Woods PGA TOUR
11 on all console platforms. The Ryder Cup is one of the last great sporting
events to be founded in prestige rather than prize money. Choose from the U.S.
or European squad and participate in the various competition formats – foursomes
where players hit alternate shots, fourballs and singles which traditionally
bring the biennial event to a close with players going head to head. When
playing The Ryder Cup mode offline, gamers will have the option to swap matches,
thus giving you the ultimate control over the outcomes of other matches.

The Ryder Cup, a competition hosted
by Ryder Cup Europe LLP and the PGA of America, brings together the best
American and European golfers in a team competition format, and the cover of
Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 11 is a direct reflection of the tournament – as Tiger
Woods denotes the U.S. team and Rory McIlroy represents the Europeans. McIlroy,
hailing from Northern Ireland and currently ranked 9th according to the Official
World Golf Rankings, has posted several impressive showings early in his
professional golfing career. Last year, McIlroy had five top 10 PGA TOUR
finishes including a third-place tie in the 2009 PGA Championship and made the
cut in all four majors. As an amateur, McIlroy also has a strong history in team
play events, which include appearances in the Junior Ryder Cup and Walker Cup.

“This is a huge honor for me to be
the on the cover with Tiger Woods as I grew up idolizing Tiger,” said McIlroy.
“The Ryder Cup has always been my favorite sporting event and the tournament is
being played at The Celtic Manor Resort in Wales in 2010. Also, I’m hopeful to
have an opportunity to represent the European team later in the year – it’s all
very special.”

Not only will players have the
ability to participate in team play but they will now be able to take a team
online* via the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. A first for the franchise, this
all-new mode will allow up to 24 players to compete head-to-head as members of
team. Team members can also talk strategy with their teammates over Xbox LIVE or
PlayStation Network.

Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 11 on the Wii
brings the links to your living room with two all-new enhanced swing mechanics
while using the Wii MotionPlus. The Advanced Plus swing difficulty will read
rotation and swing angle while the Tour Pro swing mechanic assesses rotation,
swing plane and point of contact. The Tour Pro swing features an innovative
first-person camera angle from the tee box to the putting green called True
View. True View creates the most immersive and authentic golf experience in any
video game – you are no longer watching the golfer, you are the golfer!

Since 1986, EA has produced
immersive golf experiences that give fans the ability to hit the links via an
authentic gameplay experience. Since the launch of Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 99 the
franchise has sold more than 25 million units worldwide**. The critically
acclaimed Tiger Woods PGA TOUR 10 on the Wii was a finalist for IGN.com’s 2009
Sports Game of the Year.
