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.

Well well talk about shocking. Now I'm not a fan of the 2k baseball games because I feel The Show does it better but by no means am I a *****. I have both a 360 and PS3 so if the demo can convince me to pick this up then I may have 2 baseball games this spring. That my friends is awesome =]

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.
new beginner mode is your friend

Jokes aside, there was early uncertainty about a PC version last year and it worked out. 2K's marketing is terrible, so there's a chance it simply was not initially listed. Hopefully that's the case here, since the PC version is the only way for me to go with this series.
