Hot Shots swings onto PSPs

Sony's irreverent golf game drives into stores; game features wireless multiplayer mode for eight free-swingers.

Sony Computer Entertainment America has stepped into the box and announced that Hot Shots: Open Tee is now available for the PlayStation Portable. This is the first Hot Shots game to go portable and the fourth from Japanese developer Clap Hanz. Hot Shots: Open Tee joins Tiger Woods PGA Tour as the only golf games currently available for the PSP.

Open Tee features three game modes. The single-player game offers gamers the chance to unlock characters and items by competing in tournaments or the chance to just hack around a course in stroke play. Training mode lets golfers practice their skills on various courses with no pressure to sink that 3-foot putt. The wireless multiplayer mode allows up to eight players to hit the links together in various head-to-head matches, real-time tournaments, or the new putting challenge.

The 10 new characters can be customized with more than 250 body parts, accessories, clubs, and balls for a unique look. Once players gain enough experience, they can upgrade their equipment to go even further under par.

Hot Shots: Open Tee is rated E for Everyone and retails for $39.99. For more information on the game, check out GameSpot's previous coverage.
