500+ hours...that's weak. When I was like 9 I would play Ken Griffey Baseball for days on days...In the summer I would sometimes play from like 8am-midnight.

In terms of PC games, I don't like them too much, heres why:

1.Systems have the confort factor. No need to sit in front of a comp scrunched over frantically. You can lay around on tghe couch with your controller and relax.

2. Ps2 breakdowns? How about PC breakdowns that happen 10 times more often. If your comp breaks down because of the virus not related in any way to the game you can't play the game anymore. :-t

3. Comp specs for games are way too complicated now. Most new games require you to buy new PCs ever 1 1/2 to 2 years, I personally have money to buy a new one every 5-6 years or so (maybe not even that). When the new Elder scrolls: oblivion game comes out (best game in existance btw) check out it's specs, I think 75% of the comps in the US will not be able to run the game properly.I don't want to pay extra money for new graphic cards and new sound cards just to play a game, once you get an XBOX, no upgrades, your set!

4. Games on systems are convieniet with no installation, or memmory problems or anything of that sort. Tjrow it in the tray and play, thats it.


PC games have better graphics, but the Xbox 360 has roughly the same graphics as a comp that wasn't bought in the past year. except for graphics I can't see logical reasons as to why I would ever buy PC games, just relax on your couch and play instead of stuggling to buy new graphic cards, sound cards, gamepads (that don't work with your comp half the time), as well as without sturggling to always have to be sitting up with a scrunched over back and eyes glarring at the comp.

I always played with Detroit. New Jersey was pretty good though, They had that dude named Paste who had like 60 HR's.

I was really bummed that MVP couldn't continue the MLB game but I could have dealt with the NCAA one. Then they don't make it compatible for 360. They didn't even make last years MVP compatible, but All Star Baseball 2003 is. :-? Man was I pissed. :-P

I really want a baseball game for this season but I don't know if I can settle for the crap they're putting out this year. I might have to wait until EA's NCAA MVP comes to 360. :-t

Me and my friend rented 06 the show, and the game is very similar to MVP.

Anyone played MLB '06: The Show yet? Looks like a pretty good game... I'm trying to decide whether I should buy it or just wait a couple more weeks til 2K6 comes out for PS2. Any suggestions?
