Head-to-head play, voice chat communication, and weekly online leaderboard:
Voice communication, friend list support and online leaderboards will be added in the new update. You will now be able to play with your friends online AND be able to chat with them using a PS3 headset or microphone. Feel free to chat and talk smack after comparing your stats and rankings on the online leaderboards that will be updated weekly.
Playlist with improved audio:
You can access the XMB while in-game for your own custom soundtracks, with support for playlists. Now with the new XMB custom music feature, you can bowl while listening to a mix of Beethoven, Frank Zappa, Britney Spears, Weird Al Yankovic, Gregorian Chants and Nirvana! And with the improved audio options, you?ll be able to crank up your tunes, character voices, and ambient sounds, OR turn them off altogether!
More trick shots:
The update adds two new challenges, and additional trick shots will be created for download in the future. These challenges will not only help you earn patches that you missed out on during your normal gameplay, but get you more stars for the leaderboards!
New ball bags:
There is a new and more realistic Ball Bag system in HVB. You can only bring four balls with you onto the lane in each bag, so you?ll have to choose wisely. You can name and save up to 24 different ball bags so you don?t have to individually choose four balls every time that you want to play. Be sure to mix and match so that there are some good hooking balls and some good straight rollers in your bag. This way, you?ll be prepared for any oil pattern or pin leave!
