No more unorganic celebrations. No more pixelated shadows despite being in 1080. And most of all, no more Phil F'N Kruk....although I hate Vascergen's voice. 2K, you made me buy a PS3 yesterday. I love baseball. I feel all baseball fans, hardcore and pink hats, deserve a good game. Xbox 360 owners have been denied a good ballgame thoughout it's entire tenure. I've heard horror stories about playing The Show online but it's a small sacrifice for a premium, serious baseball game. Your lack of effort and/or refusal to change on top of your inability to hold a legitimate contest for the sake of being a gimmick was enough for me to make the switch. 2009 was the last Show game I played (on PS2) and I've longed for it since. So I say farwell 2K. I've already given my money to Sony.

    • I have enjoyed the past show games. I gave 2k another chance for 2012 but then they want to bring out 2k13 with the only thing different is updated rosters. I'm with you rather spend the 60 dollars on the Show.

If the entire game were as good as the phenomenal pitching system, then I would be in love. But even building up a rookie pitcher in My Player mode is bogged down by the clunky as hell fielding and baserunning, and the inconsistent-with-stats batting quickly becomes a pain. The stat goals for my pitcher are a bit perplexing as well, seeing as how some of them have absolutely nothing to do with what is going on, or with pitching in general. "Don't let the baserunner advance." Okay, there is no one on base. Strike out - goal passed. "Advance the runners with a bunt." Okay, I'm at bat, but no one is on base. Bunt single - goal failed. What?

    The game paces itself slower than a f*cking Cactus League gamer in 103 degree heat, which makes it hard for the fantastic pitching system to make up for. Here's hoping for 2K13 to polish up all the large dents in what can otherwise be a great baseball game. I doubt it'll ever be anywhere near as good as The Show, though. Nothing beats The Show when it comes to baseball games.

    • And I'd be able to play the Deadly Premonition Director's Cut, which I'm pretty sure is only coming out on PS3.

    • I don't feel like (nor have) forking the money out to re-download DLC if need be or to re-buy games if I did buy a PS3. Exclusives on either system don't interest me.

    • Yeah but 2K didn't improve much over the years. I like the game but it just couldn't compete with The Show.

Unfortunatly, the minor league season is over and my AAA team didn't make the playoffs. So Ellsbury is stuck in the rehab stint because he can't play games and I can't move him up unless he plays AAA games. And Gonzales just got hurt. So no Jacoby and Adrian in my postseason. Good thing I picked up Fielder as a free agent. Thinking about buying a PS3 so I can play a good baseball game this year.

    • Exactly! And its so simple. I understand that there is business involved. But you all didn't change anything for the past 4 or 5 years. Sports gamers like a good detailed franchise mode, online mode, ultimate team type mode, and a my player type mode. Its a basic concept. Its when they don't put anything in it. Its like saying "F you". The whole pitching and hitting mechanics are fine but everything else is like they didn't care.

    • the mechanics are sound but some of the physics bother me. I've never once seen a high chopper in the tens of thousands of ABs I've played. Also, have you ever hit a ball into a base? A ball will go right through a base instead of bouncing off of it. Even MVP 05 has those physics. Granted, 2k12 has the least amount of glitches out of all the baseball 2k games, the commentary isn't terrible despite the fact that Kruk sounds like he always has a subway foot long in his mouth, and the MLB Today mode is ok but that only works during the season. The soundtrack blows. I always wanted to import MVP 04 and 05 soundtracks. I know you can do it for ABs but that does nothing for me. Other than Verlander, the faces are all wrong. Dustin Pedroia looks more like the junkie from Jackass....his name escapes me now. I'm not one to care for graphics since I'm a child of the 80s, but it looks more like a good PS2 game instead of a decent 360 game. Funny thing is that I can deal with all of that if they just added an "Ultimate Team" mode. Well, I guess I got about 7 weeks to make up my mind.

    I am a little disappointed that there may not be a MLB 2K series next year. Will there even be an Xbox 360 baseball game???
