Nope, I've been trying to get the achievement too by checking everytime I log in. On TrueAchievements.com, people already unlocked this achievement, so maybe they had a video the first day this came out or something.

trueachievements.com is not always acurate. Sometimes there are game testers on that site, who get achievements earlier before they are available. Im actually gonna try and watch one of my saved clips, thats the only video I can think of right now. I'll repost with news... The only other thing I can think of is maybe watch a video on the EASports website (doubtful tho).... post in a few...

06-10-2010, 08:27 PM
so i basically just watched all the videos in the game, the opening scene, before the ryder cup, winning the ryder cup, and credits... still no achievement. However, i did notice on the bottom scroll bar in use to say 'Check out the Latest News for Updates, News, Videos, and DLC' and now it says 'Check out the Latest News for updates, surveys, and DLC' or something like that, does not mention anything about videos now. I'm almost positive this achievement is not available yet, I'm thinking maybe they will release a weekly video or highlights from the real PGA or something not really sure... If anyone finds out, let me know, interested to see the outcome.

thanks for your help. i also noticed the people on trueachievements.com saying it was a rare achievement and like only 16% of people had gotten it. I thought it was a lie too, b/c I got the game on June 8th and I still havent seen a video.

I waited to see if the first "Play the Pros" tournament would give a video, but it didn't. Maybe the winner will be given a highlight reel or something, but I'm fairly certain this is unobtainable right now.

Minty
06-11-2010, 11:01 AM
The only people that have it are a few developers and hackers. I imagine they'll add video over the weekend from the PGA event.

Or they'll wait 8 days from release just in case you have to have the Live code entered to get it :p

PuppySnacks
06-11-2010, 03:32 PM
I agree with some of the others; There will probably be a video released after a PGA Tournament has ended that highlights the winner, shots, scores, etc. and will be posted in the News section at the main menu. There should be something very soon i'm assuming being that the U.S. Open is at Pebble Beach next week!

that was probably their plan the whole time...wait until all the 7 day trials have expired and then put up a movie :p Woo hoo for buying it new, but you guys impress the hell out of me for getting 985 in 7 days...I work all day and only have about 3 hours of playing a night but even that's only 2-3 nights a week :-/ It's gonna take me a longggg time

really? do you even know what tournament it is? come on the US Open is this weekend. You play this GOLF game and are not even a fan of golf. I assume your not a fan because you are asking when the tournament will finish. by the way the tournament will be over in the next 2 hours unless its a tie therefore the people who are tied for the lead will play 18 more holes tomorrow. COME ON : )

Wasn't a few hours ago. The EA team is based at Orlando, my guess is theyve only been at work for an hour, so whoever makes the video has probably only just finished checking their emails and hasn't started work yet :p

But there's only 3 banners there, not the regular 4 so maybe there warming up on it?

litepink
06-24-2010, 04:50 AM
I got to be quite honest. When I first realized that we were all going to be stuck at 985, I was excited. Unless a developer or whatever passes us up (they might have by now), then potentially someone...perhaps me...could have been "First to 1K", so long as they watched that video first. But now seems everyone is at 985.

And while we're being honest, I can admit that it's a little shallow that I need the assistance of a delayed achievement in order to say "First to 1K", but I work damnit, and would have loved to be first regardless of the situation :p

I do not think the video will be up for a while yet, the game is being released outside North America next week so its going to be at least a week or so after that, maybe around the time of the Open

Dude, You have like 3 games on your list that don't come out for another 2 weeks. Everyone knows that all developers don't ship their gams out 2 weeks early unless there big. You've been caught !!! :blunt

Chazzi27
06-30-2010, 10:46 PM
My only thought is that NBC had too much power of the highlights of the US Open so EA wasn't able to put together a package or anything. I wouldn't be surprised with all of the British Open being in the hands of ABC / ESPN and EAs contract with them, that the highlights from St. Andrews would be up. Although that wouldn't be helpful for those who have to return it / trade it in since that's a few weeks off.

SweetBlackMagic
06-30-2010, 11:34 PM
I'm guessing it will be up sometime this weekend for the US holiday and/or the European release. But who really knows at this point...not even EA apparently.

07-01-2010, 12:06 AM

i think this is some sort of conspiracy, really i do.

Skate 3 has an achievement that only unlocks when a certain board sales goal is reached. no one knows the real number, but i think the boards sold is up to 23 BILLION boards.

EA wants you to keep the game. it's simple. it's a weird tactic though, because i don't think the casual gamer gives a shit about achievements. almost my whole friends list thinks it's insane that i have almost 75,000 gamerscore, a number that is nothing compared to a lot of the people on here.

07-01-2010, 07:15 PM
Yeah EA is really starting to bother me. It REALLY pissed me off that they never reopened tournaments for tiger 07 after only having them open for a few months, hence a game not completed. Shutting down servers constantly, glitched achievements and never fixing them, it's getting frigging ridiculous. They are the only company that gets away with this b*llsh*t. Even the guys over at ghostbusters are shipping out a patch to fix glitched achievements. Now EA wants to make everyone pay for online AND hold us "hostage" with an unobtainable achievement???? Isn't it microsoft's policy that the 1000 is supposed to be obtainable(unless glitched) right out of the box? So technically EA released a 2011 game with an 985/985 score. GIVE ME A BREAK EA. Microsoft has to step up and do something.

SweetBlackMagic
07-01-2010, 07:35 PM
Well, I would say right now it's more like a 960/960 game since the survey was only up for like the first week. 40G is no f*&*ing reason for me to hold onto a video game...it's not like DLC with cheevs is going to be released for it, so I have no problem living with 960. I'm going to see if they release a vid and/or survey next week with the European release date, then I'm done with it.

mark21667
07-01-2010, 08:33 PM
I would also have that attitude, but as I bought the NTSC/J version so I could play it earlier, trading it in is not an option for me. The game will end up getting passed between my friends and family.

07-02-2010, 02:16 AM
If it IS some stupid ploy by EA to make you keep the game, this is the LAST version of Tiger Woods I'll be buying (if it's even TW after this year...lol). Hell, it might be the last for a while anyway. They simply don't change enough between years...and the overpriced courses DLC is just like a kick in the nuts. How many consecutive years have we had TPC Sawgrass and Pebble Beach? But we get ZERO fantasy courses now? It's just getting stale.

Getting really tired of holding onto this game for this 15 pointer. Really pisses me off that EA isn't putting anything up. It's beyond ridiculous at this point.

On top of it, the online tournaments on 2010 are few and far between, and when there is an amatuer up, it's all the same dbags that already have 50 million posting 26 unders with their modded controllers.

How does a modded controller help the online?

Able to tap A super quickly? Just a guess.

I must admit, with those online challenges, I can't get anywhere close to the distance they are getting on the long drive challenges. Admittedly my player hasn't got the best equipment, but I have the best Driver, second best ball etc etc and I was using a max suit. They seem to swing really slowly as well. I remember having a guy like that on 09 but I can't remember how I got it. In the end I just gave up on trying to beat the ones that were going up. I set up a 9 hole round (St Andrews No. 9) and just did a 12 under or something on my other account and then busted it on my other account straight away. I got 2000 points each time (only had to do it 3 times) and was a hell of a lot less frustrating and was fairly quick.

It is amazing to me how silent EA is on this issue, are they really willing to chance losing fans for a lousy achievement?

This version has been a huge disappointment to me this year. What a joke the Ryder Cup is, takes forever and no earning XP points. I would love to know the thought behind that idea.

The game is good just the achievements are really easy and have little or no effort to get them all; i just don't like that older editions you have to work for them this here is just a gift off 1000gs.....sorry 985gs.

i prefer the 09 version, getting your stats up by playing good shots worked really well, plus the putting was good, the 11 version is awful especially this new focus mode, most of the time i had to hit average shots onto fairways rather than use spin to get the ball in the areas i wanted.

im hoping they remove the focus mode and also the power boost on the next version as the game doesn't need any of those.

There are only a few people who have it and you have to think they have game saved. I can't think anyone has it legit yet.

I think that's a bit harsh to assume since only one person who posts normally on this forum has it and he made a good point about getting the game early. EA could have easily had a video up prior to the US release to test the server or whatever, and if you had a store break street date you could have gotten it legit.

I`ve seen a few people with it legit ( gamercard has a date stamp on, so it cant be game saved) and they all got it on 3rd June, a few days before official US release, so this strengthens your theory, just wish they would post one NOW

Fair play to them then. The only people I looked at don't have a time stamp on it, so, I was just going off them. I just presumed not one video had been put up yet.

I'm actually surprised by this because when you think about it, the achievement needs you to be connected to live meaning you'd have to have a timestamp...so I REALLY hope they get in trouble for being so dumb

Getting games early isn't necessarily illegal. I've received a number of EA games early thanks to doing freelance reviews around the web.

Getting a game early is completely different from what I'm talking about though. You'd have to be online connected to the internet to watch a video on the recent news tab. Therefore there should be a timestamp on the achievement. If there isn't, they must have unlocked it via some other means. They may have had the game legit (which if they've got achievements before it with other dates, then they are caught :p).

If anyone reading this did manage to get the achievement from the video that was posted before release date, I'm interested in knowing what the video was...ie. was it tournament specific or just a generic video about the game etc. Any info would help.

I had an ebay auction scheduled to start today regardless (yes, I'm retiring from TW '11), I was losing $$$ essentially by waiting for a video, as the game is constantly being de-valued the longer I hang on to the game

So, I'm glad to have 1000, but the ebay market may be flooded because of this...

Thinking of having a 12v12 retirement party this weekend.

I got the acheivement. When your in the game and on the main screen where you can chose ryder cup, career, x-box live etc, press right trigger and downloadable courses and surveys appear. Every now and then a video will appear, normally after a golfing event. Just keep checking daily and one will be there.

have they left videos up or do they just yank them after a little while? I'm currently without a fast enough link in iraq to connect to xbl and i'm just curious whether there will be one up when we finally get our internet satellite...

I am having the same issue. I bought the game used and started a 7 day trial just before going out of town. I bought the online pass and no video has came up in 3 weeks. WTC?
