With No New Baseball Game For the Xbox 360 on the Horizon, Does Anyone Actually Care?


The odds aren't very good we'll see a new baseball game on the Xbox 360 next year. There isn't any news on the rumor mill. But does it really matter? The MLB The Show series, exclusive to Sony consoles and handheld devices, has been the top dog for years. Kotaku's Owen Good goes into much more detail in his latest Sportaku article.

How do you feel about it?

Re: Will Anyone Really Care If There’s No More Baseball on the Xbox 360?

I doubt many people will care if there's no baseball on the Xbox, but I'm one of them.
I've really enjoyed 2k12 thus far. The only thing that's stopping me from playing it for all of 2013 is the player models and color palette.
If Fielder actually looked like Fielder (and didn't have the body type of Delmon Young), the game would have more longevity for me.

I'll still continue My Player on it though. That modes a lot of fun.

2K12 was on the right path. The game has it's flaws, but it's fun and plays a respectable brand of baseball.
I think if VC were given the reigns years ago, the series might have been saved.

Oh well.

Microsoft owns the rights to High Heat Baseball. Why don't they release an XBL version of the game with updated rosters, uniforms, etc.?

I think a good number of people will care and rightfully so.
My 360 died a number of months ago and I haven't replaced it. I just don't use it much any longer.
But if it was the same for my PS3 and I couldn't afford to replace it....I'd need my baseball fix.
Plus...it's just nice to have an alternative game.

Like nem stated....I think 360 owners will have a game in place for them in '13.
(and no...it won't be The Show(unfortunately for them ))

M.K.

Did MS ever do anything with that license? I remember them purchasing it years ago, but I don't recall any use coming of it.

I'm hoping like heck that 2k will rethink 2k13. 2k12 is a darn good game and with some adjustments here and there could be great.

MS never did anything with the rights to High Heat after buying them from the bankrupt 3DO.

I wonder what the purpose was then?
Did they buy them out simply to remove a competitor, or did they have plans to do something with that engine?
Maybe they did use some of it's code in follow-up baseball games?
