Hey guys exciting news. There is going to be a beta test for the new game between May 26-28. You can download an entry application on the Japanese PSN store. Also when they announced this part of the reason they are doing the beta is because they are doing a worldwide server. This is the first official announcement they the servers would be combined and is great news for us. Now we should be able to find a game at any time. Here is a link with all the info and a link to the download ticket on the Japanese store. Shout out to Starsaber for letting me know about the sign up.

When I click on the download link it sends me to the english PS store and says page not found. Any ideas how to get around this? Proxy or vpn perhaps.

Nevermind: sign out of your account on the psn site first if you haven't already

email received yesterday :

Discover the fairway of Everybody's Golf in our special preview on PlayStationŽ4, and start with a free Everybody's Golf digital theme to be retrieved on the PlayStationŽStore

Participate in a two-day private online test against other PS4 ™ players from around the world, either in Free Run mode or in our new Team Warfare mode.

The online private test begins May 26 at 08:00 CEST and ends May 28 at 09:00 CEST. It is open to ALL, so rendezvous on the green!


I'm not sure if it's very clear because i received the mail in bad french (certainly translated with google) and i share the mail re translated in english with google.

But if i understood they give a free theme !

You make it sound like there's an extra form to fill out to apply for the beta. Where is this form at? You guys are sounding like a bunch of Emo's without any specifics. I already pre-ordered the u.s. beta. Still no beta email.

I don't think anyone posted about this but I saw on playstation asia's facebook there was yet another beta ticket available for what seems to be aimed at asian countries other than Japan.

They didn't start signups until may 12th, and ends may 21st. No idea what language this version will be in, but it mentions english korean and chinese. Also at least for me this ps store page was in english without translating.

You probably need to make an account there and not sure if they do any address verification or anything. The default country for signing up is Singapore. Use a hotel in Singapore if you register a new account. Go here but make sure you are logged out of your ps account first:

Also, I must say I thought there would be more people reporting they got into beta invites by now but perhaps they are waiting until early next week when the above beta signup ends. Talk about Japan behind way ahead of everyone else with this game yet again. I keep trying my Japanese beta code but still getting error messages- not supposed to work until the 25th anyway.

effectively we have to make an account (no adress verification). Like in europe it's just a chance to participate (random selection) to the closed beta. it's better than nothing.

he posted a screenshot of the email- it was definitely the north american region. Others are confirming they got codes at the neogaf forum and begging for codes lol.

It seems lame if they just emailed random people instead of longtime players but on the other hand that will mean lots of people willing to give out their codes.

People are already downloading the us beta in advance of the test and it came with a free theme.

Guys I'm happy to say I got in. But I think you can find codes out there if you hit up some of the forums. I've seen people give them away on Reddit, gamefaqs and Neogaf. One positive of Sony giving it to random people is that more people are willing to give up their code because they don't play golf games. I already checked though and you can not share the download through account sharing. The beta is hard locked to the account that downloaded it. I tried but to no avail, I was really hoping to make it so lots of people could get in.

It was from Playstation USA. I'm not sure if the Euro codes have all gone out or not. I saw a spanish tweet that seemed to have gotten theirs but I did not see much else. I saw plenty of people that got the U.S. codes though so maybe they are still coming. I know the Hong Kong codes have not gone out yet.

Grrrr Boiling mad, Ive only played since ps2, 8 yrs,
but many have been supporting this franchise & sony
for much longer.
I will make this promise, THAT is the LAST preorder
I EVER make to any Sony Game.
Use someone elses money you backstabbers.
Good thing there are no refunds.

MikeR-HK
05-23-2017, 05:29 PM
I feel the same way. I keep thinking "it's only a game" but it really has been a big part of my life since the PS2. Perhaps they will drop some more codes to loyal users tonight. I only bought a Vita so I could play WI (and that's the only game I bought for it). I'm willing to pay a good sum to play the Beta if anyone wants to sell a code. If 1/2 of you all got a code and I didn't I could live with that, but for almost none of us to get one is a slight. It really should not bother me, but for some reason it does. It's like someone in charge of sending out the invites said "screw it" just send them out randomly.

Starsaber00
05-23-2017, 06:40 PM
I know what you mean. I'm really thinking the % of the HSG community that received a code is fairly low. Their intentions were probably to try and get a larger audience for the game. But come on. People are either gonna buy the game or not. I'm not a fan of FPS, and participating in the Battlefield 1 beta sure as heck didn't make me purchase that game.

05-23-2017, 07:17 PM
Sorry to hear some of you loyal HSG players did not get a beta information. I did a couple of days ago. I played on the Vita and the PS3. I have been waiting to play on PS4. There is a non disclosure agreement so sorry can't share about the experience, but hopefully I will do the community well.

The actual NDA rules do say that but I really doubt that Clap Hanz is going to do anything as they are are pretty small company. They are out there on twitter talking about how the beta starts Friday so they are not exactly treating it like a secret.

Shihiko and I will both be participating in the closed test this weekend, I wanted to take the opportunity to let you guys know that we are setting up a bilingual streaming channel for the new upcoming game, we have also created an open discord channel for the community. At a future date a website is going up that will feature media content from both English, and Japanese streamers. Shihiko and I will both be creating content for these channels, and will be looking for other content providers to further grow the channel in the future. The goal is to provide the community with easy access to streaming content, and a place to communicate in real time.

youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCc2aZz5B90G53PdZ5C8-kLw
discord 24h temporary link: https://discord.gg/5d8jta
twitter(shihiko): https://twitter.com/shihiko?lang=en

The above link for discord will expire in 24 hours, while we are in the very early stages of organizing content, we wanted to open up the channel to anyone that wants to use it for the closed test and anyone else that wants to keep up to date on any content/streaming info. I will be around most of the day if anyone has questions or just feels like stopping by.

The last thing worth noting, is I will be playing primarily on my みんなのGOLF username: Xenidol

Yes, skyball is super high, rocket ball super low, but still go the club yardage. Best for hitting out from behind trees (sky) or under (rocket) but also sky was very helpful for difficult long approaches to greens because it's so high, it just lands and doesn't move. There were also two different ways to hit those shots.

Overall the game design is done pretty well, this is the closet thing to a Out of Bounds successor we have seen. Eagle G,C 9out from regular tees plays more dynamically than anything World Invitational had to offer. Engine feels solid, most similar to Minna 5, but definitely another new or modified game engine.

Music and audio aren't as good so far, from what little we have seen. I'll reserve judgement until retail release. There are quite a few things that need to be implemented and confirmed to make this one of the best in the lineup. As far as mechanics go so far the closed test is missing quite a lot, here is a short list of the important ones:

-No additional swing styles available. I'm hoping that there will be some other swing styles like circle shot or advanced shot added at retail. There are some concerning signs like the traditional bar in the loading screen area etc, and a possible lack of room on the interface for a curved bar.

-No precision impact. In the closed test SJI does nothing for the lie %, unlocked from loyalty in previous titles.

-No lie precision. This was earned through loyalty in previous titles.

-No tuning precision. This is a big one for me, currently you can not adjust power with triangle and circle. Again this was unlocked from loyalty.

-No special shots in the Closed Test (Confirmed unlocked in retail though including a surprise ability from a previous title.)

The game has a lot of upside, but the closed test leaves a lot of unanswered questions, I'm still cautiously optimistic that this title will turn into a gem. It sounds like match play and tournaments are confirmed, but may not be in the retail version at launch. Out of the list above, the most likely thing to be left out of the retail version of the game is the additional swing styles, the rest "should" be unlocked through character level or some other progression locked content like challenge mode.

Played the beta test for a few hours and I came away with mixed feelings. While the testing is so limited as to what they allow you to do all we can do really is wait and see at release. I did notice 1 thing I really liked and 1 thing I very much disliked. First the negative. I do not like the way the online is set up where every1 just roams around freely. I can see this being a real problem with trolls and haters just following you around and trying to impact your play. Second the positive. I love how they brought back the option to play to different fairways. This was a big part of oob and was something I really missed on WI. Way more options on your shots.

johnboru
05-27-2017, 03:09 AM
I have a feeling you will be able to toggle off the other players in the full game. Much as it was the case in the last. I fear swing types may be a purchase option as Clap Hanz know how keen people would be to get away from Trad.

Reezellthia
05-27-2017, 04:49 AM
Quite a few postives for me:
Checked out the course records section and now you can have PBs on tiny cup, mega cup, and tornado.
Also in addition to regular tee and long tee there is a 'championship tee'.

Things missing I hope they bring back:
When teeing off there used to be a camera (L2 I believe) to let you view the pin from your proposed shot location. I used this quite a bit to ensure there's no trees in the way etc.

Senidol
05-27-2017, 09:47 AM

I'm leaning more and more towards no additional shot styles, they added a new mechanic with flyer lies that the impact zone now has visible areas of black that if you land in them you get a flyer, land outside of them even without PI and no flyer. Can't replicate that mechanic with Advanced/Circle meters, they would have to go back to a PI or Die mechanic for flyers, even the caddies comment when you get into these type of lies. They are also much more common now, as the rough is more true rough in this game.

On a different note, the participation in this closed test is a great sign. Numbers have been around 6-7k testers per day, more then 70% of the players have been Japanese in my experience. The new retail server is going to have a completely different feeling to the one most NA/EU players are used too.

-11 under i think is the legit best score still, hole 5 is tough to pull off, so its usually -10 plus a hole out along the way. If you see anyone with abnormal points beyond what you can get without specials, its someone that glitched a hole or two.

I've managed a -10 but that had a hole out on the 2nd and 8 birds, I've only managed to reach the 2nd par 5 in 2 once and that was thanks to a lucky bounce over the little bridge on the other fairway. I know it's no specials, no fine tuning, trad and standard equipment but I don't remember EGWT being this tough :(

The game has a lot of potential, from an engine standpoint it is far superior to EGWT/Minna 6. I would call it the direct successor to the Minna 5 franchise, this is the type of game we should have gotten in the main line of the franchise 5 years ago on PS3. From what we know about the game right now I would say it probably isn't worth the $60 dollar price in Japan, and the $100 extra DLC package is probably an overreach on Sony's part. At 29.99 pounds, and $39.99 I think you will get your value out of the game, and potentially get another game you can play for years, but if not it'll be worth the play through at the very least. There are still a lot of unknowns that will determine the enjoyable factor for a lot of people and I'm hoping Studio Japan finds some resemblance of balance this time around working with Clap Hanz.

-We don't know if there will be other swing styles available
-We don't know how far you'll be able to level your stats and how powerful the character can get.
-We don't know what type of special abilities, or power increasing mechanics will be added to the game.
-We don't know when Tournaments and Match play will be added to the game, and what they entail, but they have been confirmed.
-We don't know what clubs and balls will be available for infinite use.
-We don't know how the new lobby system will work for finding friends.

-We know the game engine is solid, and more similar to Minna 5 then Minna 6.
-We know the courses are far more dynamic than anything in Minna 6.
-We know there are three sets of tees, regular, long, and champion.
-We know there is a mirrored course option.
-We know there are PB rankings for teeny cup, regular cup, mega cup and tornado cup.
-We know they have added new on screen guides to display the control stat under working conditions.
-We know there will be a Single Player campaign challenge mode.
-We know there will be roughly 7 courses at launch (including the 2 anniversary courses) and 3 planned DLC courses early on.
-We know that lobby interaction will be more robust then it currently is in the patch.

For me the game will be worth the $40 regardless of the outcome of the things above, I'm hoping they can retain some resemblance of balance and difficulty and not make the game into the watered down version of Driver-Wedge Driver-Wedge Driver-Wedge ad nauseam that Minna 6 became late in its shelf life.

If you can tell Shihiko there are people like me that'll pay the extra $5 or $10 to max my characters out. So we can go straight online , instead of spending a month burning ourselves out in single player...trying to max them out manually.

Surprised he wouldn't give you more basic confirmations. The online tourneys and having other shot types besides Trad should be an instant yes or no.

If it IS just Trad, it'll be a big shock but i'll still get it. Cheating is the biggest turnoff for an online game.

Something else I noticed:
Didn't see anything other than flat lie angles on any shot anywhere on the course in this beta. They might have tilted left or right, but not forward or backward.
EG5/HSG5 had differing lie angles that greatly affected the shot and was more realistic.

Shihiko isn't affiliated with Clap Hanz or studio japan in any fashion. He is a member of the community that has put in work to bring us as much information as he can about the franchise over the past 10 years.

Uk and was defo in ft. 2 days later and still not a clue how to work out putt power :mad: lucky eagle city is pretty flat eh. -10 was my best score, never managed to eagle the 5th but did manage 2nd and 3rd. Did post a fake -21 this evening just for the hell of it :eek:

Cudos for the Alby on 3, I was trying to hit that little pontoon in practise but never managed it.

No blue power option so I fear that b*****s tilt power is still going to be around, turbitts don't work either.

I did get some varying up/down slopes but the inaccuracy of standard equipment along with my ineptness at playing trad meant I couldn't really tell if it effected the carry.

I get the impression that the open course we had in beta is just gonna be for goofing about and posting various daily scores, the home area had another kiosk that was inactive, I'll wager that will be where the tours are to be found and likely to be played as characters and not yourself (if you know what I mean).

Ok so I guess I will post my thoughts on the beta both positive and negative.

Let's start with the positive. I really love the 9 hole connected course layout. It's pretty cool running around with a bunch of people on the course and once you start a real round they don't get in the way at all. I think they have made changes to the physics of the game that seem closer to real golf, especially with the way the ball rolls on the green compared to previous titles. I enjoy the character creator and building up my own golfer from scratch, I have always wanted this in a Hot Shots game. It looks like there will be tons of customization and some of you guys are much more creative than I am. One world server is awesome and there were around 7000 people that played the beta. Compared with how empty the game usually is on the U.S. server this is a welcome change even if it will be harder to make g0 rank now. Turf War is a lot of fun if you have at least 4 people per team and they seem to know what they are doing. This will be a great way to kill time when there is a wait for a tourney to start. I think the game environment looks great on the course and can't wait to see some of the new courses. From messing around in the menus it looks like we will get at least 10 course with the DLC that has already been announced, there were only 9 in the last title. It also appears that vs character will be returning based on the character screen and the hub world menu. Lastly it's nice that we seem to be getting 3 tee lengths now so we aren't approaching a par 5 with a 9 iron joy.

Ok now for the negative. I really wish we still had 2 click putting. Although I feel like I adjusted to it fine but on longer putts I want more control back in my hands. Also the lack of swing types is concerning although this could just be the beta and we will get more at retail release. I really don't like the idea of consumable balls that you need to keep buying. If Clap Hanz needs to sell DLC and wants to let us buy costumes that is fine but I don't want to have to keep spending real money to get infinity balls for every round I play. I think they need to adjust how the levels for clubs go up. Unless you are hitting for the green the only stat that goes up is power. They need to adjust this for clubs like 1w-5w so that they can get control stats boost easier in my opinion. Lastly there were a few bugs in the game with regards to the scoring and matchmaking for Turf War. As long as those are ironed out before release I will be happy.

Overall I had a great time with the beta and can't wait until August 29 for the final game.

Not sure I mind three click putting, the impact was so massive I didn't feel like not hitting pi was causing me to miss putts.

The two extra balls they had in the beta could both be purchased using the coins collected in the game so not sure they would suddenly make it real money for balls (they aren't EA after all), hopefully it is just a way to encourage open play instead of just tour, tour and more tours.

I disagree with the control boost as well, at the end of the day most of us will end up maxing out every stat eventually by just playing the game so no point in making it too easy. Anyways I still think the personal characters may just be for open course play/dailys and the tours will still be nov, int and exp character driven. ;)

Agree on the balls. I collected 5000+ coins just over the weekend, so I don't really see that being an issue. Plus we don't really know yet what the fishing and other activities will reward you with (if anything). Perhaps you'll receive coins from there as well.

Really just leave the putting Alone, hard enough and NOT BROKEN!!!
I predict this will be a nighmare on a course lie Legacy!
Way too hard for beginers & dumb backwards retarded move for the franchise.
I really like everything else and can feel the potential of the game.
Really like that you get Exaclty what you hit, nice engine.
Don't take away swings that we have so much time perfecting.

I disagree. There are way too many good games out there (non-golf) to occupy our time these days. If I have to burn myself out and waste a month on single player again (like last game) i'm going to get bored fast and switch over to something else..before I could appreciate and fully enjoy the online aspects. Which means 'only' the die-hards are going to play this one long term. Also meaning competition will always be intense ALL the time , in all tourneys. If we think we're good...just wait till were against the Japanese all the time.

..just another argument to give us an option ($) to fully max out our players.

So, is this site going to pick up on activity once "Everybody's Golf" is released? Looking forward to the comeback....

Here's hoping they'll add a few new ones.
