Our friend favre4vr, over at FullCountPitch has posted his impressions from the MLB '08: The Show demo.
"Perhaps the area that the Show really shines brightest is in the gameplay department. Baseball is a sport that is easy to translate to a video game, but difficult to get realistic results with. The Show walks that line quite well. The first aspect that the demo really does well with is pitch counts. Without adjusting a slider, Jeff Francis (me) threw 61 pitches through 3 innings while Josh Beckett (CPU) threw 55 in the same 3 innings. If not for my for the curse of my impatience at the plate, Beckett would’ve thrown upwards of 70 pitches as he was wild in that particular game."
