Tiger 09 and SBK-08 demos on Live

Shocking socks and sweaty leathers.

EA's demo version of Tiger Woods PGA Tour 09 has popped up on Xbox Live as well as PlayStation Network.

The demo features three holes on the new Gary Player Country Club course in South Africa, and introduces Tiger's coach Hank Haney, who will advise you on your technique after you're finished. You will also get to try out the new Club Tuner, where you can pimp your sticks.

Also on Xbox Live this week is a demo of SBK-08: Superbike World Championship. It's not available in Asia or North America, apparently, but European crotch-rocketeers can engage with a pair of tracks using all the teams, riders and bikers featured in the SBK.

Look out for our reviews of both games pretty soon. SBK-08 is out now (also on PC, PS2 and PSP, with a PS3 version to follow), while Tiger Woods 09 will be with us on 29th August for Xbox 360, Wii, PS3, PS2 and PSP. And yes, we'll be trying to do separate reviews of the flashy-graphics console version and the Wii version.
