WOW I bought a new game system just because the show was the only baseball game on the xbox.

I'm fully aware that many people do not play in a way that generates 120+ pitches a game. That pitch speed is fine if you are not actually reading pitches and taking strikes in an effort to get a the right pitch in the right location.

And some people like a lighter game like that. But 2K12 requires more thought and a plan for each at-bat.

Good news for those that only have a 360.

How many hours have you put into the series?
The Show is anything but simple or easy when you first play it. Like I said before, I don't have 10+ hours a week to play this game.

I think there was a poll put on O.S. a few months ago asking what pitch speed people have it set to.
A majority (over 60%) I believe had it at 0, while another chunk of people said they wanted it even lower than that.

And in the SCEA run test groups, which Russell has spoken about here time and time again, the resounding request from all of these groups was that the game was too hard, and the pitch speed is too fast.

The Show is anything but pick-up-and-play. It's for the hardcore that have oodles of time to play on.
With 2K, I never felt frustrated. And the slider sets, which are superior to The Shows, make it a lot more customizable to mold the game however you like.

I wish people would stop saying that....

Good for people who only have 360....

No it's good for business and competition. I am sure 360 only gamers could survive with baseball.

I own all consoles and PC... and regardless I think it's good for 2ksports, because they almost removed another title from their library.

In the Show the pitch speeds are way too fast, even at 0 (Russel admits that the majority of people they test the game on, have said so as well).
It's incredibly difficult to pick up on what pitch is being delivered, and the CPU is very good even at low levels.
I'm sure several Show fans will say "Wow, this guy stinks if he thinks that way".
Yes, I stink. And I know that practice would help.
But here's the thing. I'm nearly 40, have a wife, 2 active kids, and a 50-hour work week. I have maybe 5 to 6 hours of game playing time during the week.
I don't feel it should be necessary to put in 60 hours in a game in order to enjoy it, or be good at it.
With 2K, I can. Right away.
With Hitters Eye, a higher slider scale and lower settings that are truly easy, I can pick up and play immediately.

The Show deserves it's accolades. But I don't think words like 'unplayable' are warranted with 2k11 or 2K12. Both were very good games that many have enjoyed.
Money. I hear you. I have both games (The Show 12 and 2k12) -- I enjoy both but I do appreciate the playability of 2k11 and 2k12, especially for the casual gamers like you and me in our 40's with wife and kids.
