MVP 2003 for PC was a disgrace, as I've said multiple times. Let's hope 2004 is better.

MVP 2004 is far from a disgrace for XBox :-D

Except for the fact that Bonds isn't in the game and the process of changing batting orders is slower than I'd like, everything else seems fine. But you can change the replacement player to Barry Bonds in a couple of second anyway. They even have his RoboCop elbow pad that you can put on him to make him even more like the real thing - without the licensing fee :-b

A+ from me ;-D

We'll figure it out once people pick up the PC version.

If anyone does have the PC version, please do let us know how it is. ;-D

great game, but ive noticed sumthing kind of odd.. for some players, their OBP is somehow lower than their AVG during a dynasty.. Ive played 8 games i think, and Manny is on a tear for the Sox, 19 hit, .600 avg, but his OBP is like .550. Just a minor glitch but kinda weird.

I've played 10 games and I don't think I've walked once, so my OBP is the same as my BA for pretty much everybody :*) Prior has the highest BA at .600 (6-for-10) and also has a .600 OBP.

BTW: Anybody know where to find what minor leaguers in this game reflect on real-life ML's who aren't signed to MLBPA contracts? I did a fantasy draft so I can't tell which team's farm system these guys came from. Players like Weeks and Morneau, who've played in the majors, are in the game. But I've heard that for all the guys not in the MLBPA they have done the same thing that they did with Bonds; re-name them. I have a good catching prospect in AA (Carl Hernandez) who I'm hoping is the game's equivalent of Joe Mauer ;-D

Your OBP can also be lower if you have say 0 walks and 0 HBP's but ou have a sacrifice fly then it could go below your OBP.

I wish one of these baseball games would make walks a legitimate part of the game.

I guess they try, but we naturally just swing at every pitch I think. When I sim some games I get walked all the time. I try to avoid swinging at obvious balls, but I still havn't had any more than 2 balls in any at-bat.

And is anybody else who plays this game a lot sick of the soundtrack yet? How many times am I going to be forced to lsiten to "Walkie Talkie Man"?? I wish we could use our own saved songs on XBox, like most other games allow..........I wonder why they didn't add that feature :-?
