Not interested, I feel like one of the good parts about sports video games is knowing the players, and in NCAA they won't even have names and I won't know who anybody is since I don't watch college baseball. I'll just keep getting the updates for 2005..

There are 3rd party programs that put players names in.

I think this is a great way to get used to names you never would know otherwise. You will play and see that certain players have really good ratings and you'll pay a little more attention to them in the news when you read a box score.

I'm really looking forward to going to ASU baseball games this spring here.

I agree that one of the funnest parts of sports games are knowing the players your controlling. This game does look pretty cool though considering I know a decent deal about college baseball teams and some players, I wish they had real player names, stupid copyright laws.

Their names have nothing to do with copyright laws. They are not professional athletes so they can't endorse any product without losing their amateur status.

Exacltly. I remember the old NCAA Football with Rick Williams for Texas. They didn't say his name at all but if you typed it in then they would say it which was cool

So... Anyone played this? If it's like NCAA Football, I might give it a gander. At $30, that's not too much if it comes recommended.

I know someone that got it and they said it was good. I'll probably rent it since I don't think it's backward compatible (yet) for 360.
