If you're an XBox One X owner, would you be willing to pay at least $10 for an XBox One X Enhanced version of TGC 2 that offered 4k HDR?

Your comment says a lot about what makes this game special.  I just played an awful round in the Official Pro-Am Society tournament, shooting a 74 and not being able to make a putt to save my life.  Yet, I enjoyed the heck out of it.  I can't imagine how much more I would have enjoyed it in 4K, HDR @ 60 FPS!

Oh, one other hidden benefit I just thought about from this poll, it'll give us an idea of how many X owners we have here who play TGC 2! 8)

I voted yes but IMOP HB should do it for free. They could use it as marketing as the only 4K golf game on the market.

Then again we all know how well the marketing has been with MG.

Agree that it should be free.....but I would pay for it because what little time I have to play is primarily TGC2 at TGC Tours.

Well they could, but would the message reach enough ears to generate enough new sales to make it cost effective for HB Studios to produce the DLC?  I have my doubts about it, especially given the low profile marketing of TGC 2.  I couldn't begin to put a price tag on the cost of producing an X enhancement for this game, but if I had to guess it would be in the 10 to 15 thousand dollar range.  They'd have to sell close to 2,000 10$ DLCs to realize a 20%ish return on investment for producing it.

Would such a DLC net 2,000 sales?  There would have to be some powerful word of mouth to make that happen, I'd say.

Well it ain't happening brother.

I would double down and pay 20 for live match play!  Even though bit should be in the damn game.

For some, such as myself, it would be a very costly upgrade.  First, I'd have to buy a 4k tv, then X one X, then the game itself.   I suppose, in due time, I would get the 4k tv (have my eye on one), but since I just purchased the X 1 S @ $189 over the black Friday deals, I'm not in any hurry to get the X1X.   If a 3rd go around of this game came out in native 4k, then that would be enough time to purchase everything to enjoy the game in it's full spectacle.  It also wouldn't hurt if they threw in a REAL mutiplayer mode.  You know, real time one on one, swing for swing same hole etc., etc.....

4k/hdr enhancements they should fix the game. They should do tgc3 4k/hdr.

From what I've read, it's not much of a task to convert a game from 1080p to 4K HDR.  Turn 10 had Forza 7 running in 4K HDR in less than a day.  I know HB Studios doesn't have the resources and manpower of  Turn 10, but I'd bet they could do it in less than a week.

There are definitely things to fix in TGC 2.  I'd love to see the "checking chips" be resolved, real time bilateral match play get reinstated, a return of the pre-game invite to match function, and a code change that sync the ghost(s) with whom you've selected to play your Society tournament round to the proper hole on the leaderboard.  I was playing a Society tournament round last night and was tied with my playing companion for the lead after 12 holes.  I slipped up and accidentally glanced at the leaderboard after the hole and saw his 18 hole score, and knew that I didn't have to press to maintain my lead... kinda' took the drama out of it  :(

I think might not be as easy as you think Dolby may charge license fees for Dolby vision.

That's certainly an aspect I haven't considered, but then again, I'm not familiar with Dolby vision, nor its licensing fees or applicability in this case.  Maybe someone qualified to speak to it can weigh in?

Meanwhile, we've established that we have 14 Xbox One X/TGC 2 owners here, and 85.7% of them are willing to come off the hip for premium 4K, HDR DLC for this game;)

Make each license a part of the DLC price......I am sure Dolby Labs would like to have some additional real world users out there.....
