$20 has always been a big selling price point. Since ESPN has to compete with EA Sports, it's not too surprising that they are trying to undercut the market. Good job by ESPN, and good for the consumer. ;-D

If only they released the game remotely close to when MVP was released, this might matter. But everybody has already bought their copies of MVP for the most part. It came out over 3 months ago. It's a good idea though, since getting people to commit to a certain brand of baseball game is important considering they might buy the updated version each year.

Its not the baseball game, its the football game, so it will come out around the time Madden comes out.

Its the 2005 football game. I just hope that the MLB game and every other game will cost $20 too.

EA Sports made their PS2 version of MVP online, but left Xbox hanging, so ESPN thought they could own the Baseball Xbox live world. Well about a week ago EA said that MVP 06 will be online for BOTH PS2 and Xbox, so ESPN is in deep trouble :-o


Hopefully you mean MVP 2005, not 2006. I'll probably buy it either way though, since I don't use XBox live. At least that game would give me a reason to start ;-D
