By Spencer . June 9, 2008 . 7:14pm

Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee 2 isn’t a huge change from the previous PSP game or the Hot Shots Golf series in general. Clap Hanz completed revisions in Hot Shots Golf: Out of Bounds, but they stuck with the familiar three button control system for Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee 2. You press X to […]

Minna no Golf Portable 2 heading to North America

By Spencer . February 21, 2008 . 3:51pm

Sony's GDC booth had the Japanese build of Minna no Golf Portable 2 on display. However, the title art above called it Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee 2.
