Another day, another batch of games shipped to stores. Instead of giving them all their own posts, we grouped them, and so far there are announcements for:

Real World Golf (PS2/Xbox)

"We are very excited to bring Real World Golf and the Gametrak motion- capture controller to market," said Darren Richardson, President and CEO of Mad Catz. "The introduction of this innovative controller and game will demonstrate to consumers just how interactive a game can truly become."

The Gametrak controller is the centerpiece of this new technology which precisely tracks the player's movements and translates them to an in-game character of their choice. Real World Golf lets them actually swing the golf club to hit the in-game ball as the controller captures their swing in real time. The controller is so realistic that a golfer can actually draw, hook, slice, or put backspin on the ball. Game features include ten beautiful 18-hole golf courses, customizable player profiles, skill levels from novice to pro, tournament mode, championship mode, and a training mode with a in-game golf pro. It also contains multiple mini-games such as smashing a ball through the windows of the clubhouse, hitting a golf ball at a giant dartboard, and target practice on a driving range.

The only controller of its kind, Gametrak operates using two gloves attached to the Gametrak to capture hand, wrist, and arm movements in detail. With incredible accuracy it can track swing speeds up to 2000 mph and tracks movements as small as 1mm. This all translates to an exceptional golf game that knows where a ball will land as if the player hit a real golf ball on a real golf course.

This new controller and game will be bundled together and sold at major retailers nationwide on April 11th for an MSRP of $69.99.
