If dropping $200 on a Wii plus another $40 or so on a miniature golf game still doesn’t satisfy your virtual putt-putt needs, I’m afraid the next step up is a big one. This Video Arcade Miniature Golf Game available from Hammacher Schlemmer uses real golf putters and balls, but the actual courses and obstacles are virtual and only appear on the 32-inch vertically mounted LCD display.

You putt the ball with the club just like you’d do in real miniature golf, but after it passes below the screen its position and trajectory is calculated and transferred to the in-game ball, where it continues on its course. Sound effects and annoying music are provided by a set of three speakers, and there’s an automatic ball return for added convenience. It will set you back a whopping $6,900, but that includes “White Glove delivery” which sounds like it would make the investment totally worthwhile.

    I thought the 'white glove delivery' was something special too .. until a guy in a mickey mouse costume stepped out of the truck. I gave him points for authenticity since he was missing a finger.

    What?! $6,900 for that arcade game? Who the hell would ever purchase that? That's more than enough money to spend on other valuable items, other PC games or consoles or even wow gold if you're desperate to level up on World of Warcraft.

    That better be one heck of a golf game for $6900! I've played Tiger Woods golf on the Wii, and it was only $50 (plus the cost of the Wii) and it was pretty darn good.

    I bet the sale of Tiger Wood's Wii game will be down because of all the controversy going on around his 'car accident.' I don't suppose many people will be picking this up as an alternative though.
