According to IGN, the Show 08 comes out on March 4, one day after MLB 2k8. This game is only a ps2/ps3 release as far as I know :-)

As for other games, it looks like MLB 2k8 comes out on March 3. I hope they made some improvements to the shell of game that they released a year ago.

I was a huge fan of the MVP games, and when those went away I was able to make it on the first "Show" (it was actually quite a good game), but since I picked up a 360 two years ago I would have to admit that I havent played a baseball game with any regularity due to the relative mediocrity of the Sega based games...

I'd like to hope that MLB 2k8 is good for the Wii, but it'll probably be a dumbed down game on the level of ps2.

I read a Brinkman interview on gamespot, is that what you're referring to? If you know anyone other places that have info on it, I'd like to read them.

I'm totally looking forward to this game! I heard its the most real baseball game experience you can get. The batters can be in prolonged slumps or be on a hot streak for a long time.

Even the crowd gets in it with hanging k's and leaning out to catch foul balls and home runs. It can be jeffrey mayer all over again!

Yea thats what I read. It seemed like they were over hauling everything which is pretty cool IMO.

Unfortunately for me last year had no PC games. And i'm really a PC gamer . Now that I have a wii i'll get baseball back. weeee

The graphics look horrible here :-t


Im not holding out much hope in 480i, but if it is a fun sports game that is sans glitches for the Wii, I might be inclined to avoid the 360 version this season. I guess Ill wait and see when it gets closer :-)
