Good luck! How's the next-gen version going?

Amy Bartlett: Great. It will be a launch title for Xbox 360 later this year and we did show it at E3. It'll be very different to the current-gen games - it'll have a different line-up of golfers and courses, but more importantly with new hardware comes the opportunity to do new things. There are lots of things we always wanted to do but couldn't, and know we can think about putting those things in the game.

And what would those things be?

PS2 Screen

Amy Bartlett: [Laughs] You'll just have to wait and see. But it was evident from what we showed at E3 that the additional detail really helps to bring the course to life. Every blade of grass is rendered individually and behaves individually - it's pretty exciting. Of course, we're still really excited about the current-gen product, but the next-gen proposition means our wishlists are growing again.

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2006 will be available for PS2, Xbox, GameCube, PSP and PC in autumn, with the Xbox 360 version launching alongside the console and other next-gen versions due next year.
