Isn't Sega the maker behind the ESPN games? Seems like that's the way I remember it. I guess that's their way of getting back at EA.

Sucks though, I loved MVP, assuming they fix the left handed batting problem.

here is some new stuff for this year...

* Own the Plate—Move in the batter’s box to adjust to where the pitcher is working you, or keep the defense honest by laying down a drag bunt.

* Precision Pitching—Paint the corners and send a message with the all-new Precision Pitch Meter, or catch runners napping with unparalleled pickoff control.

* Enhanced Big Play Control—Make user-controlled stretches and dives, and beat pickoff throws with the all new manual leadoff control.

* Build an Empire— From setting ticket and concession prices to throwing promotional days, control every aspect of your organization in all-new Owner mode.

* All-New Create Ballpark Feature—Build a pitcher’s paradise or a hitter’s dream. Will you spend your earnings to upgrade your ballpark or to sign that cherished key free agent?

* The Minor Leagues Expand—Advanced Single-A squads and additional stadiums have been added to round out the Minor Leagues.

* Spring Training— Create your lineup based on player progression during Spring Training and build player attributes in a variety of mini games.

Some other things:
-Real Money is used this year.
-Baseball America has teamed up with EA for prospect info.
-Roster cutoff January 14-17, some where in there
-Lefty Glitch is fixed


here's a link to the Take Two vs. EA

Not a monopoly...if you read the article is says that they are going to allow NEW competitors into the market, just not existing ones. So say goodbye to MVP, but hello to Sony and Microsoft.

I agree....it sucks. Hopefully they will put out a good game, though I'm not counting on it. I might be playing MVP 2005 for a long time, and just updating the rosters myself.
