ESPN Videogames have posted their exclusive first look at MLB '09: The Show, including some new screenshots.

"Think A-Rod chokes in the clutch? Ever shout "Dodgers suck!" or yell "Drewwwwwww" when J.D. walks up to the plate? MLB 09 is about to bring out the crazed fan in all of us as not only can you record your voice screaming anything from "Where's Madonna?" to "we want a pitcher not a belly itcher" and put it in the game thanks to peripherals like the Rock Band mic and wireless headset, the fan yells will sound like your voice actually coming from the stands. You can even assign the recordings to be part of a chant and your voice will be put through a new process so that it sounds more like a crowd chanting "over-rated" and not just a single person yelling."

YES YES YES!!!!

Multi-Branch Fielding -- Branch Point Technology goes to a new level as gamers you can now take full control of fielders and break out of any animation in the process. Change a fielding decision and branch out of any animation after the first branch point.

See, this is why I told my wife that a PS3 was a great investment.

All the new stuff looks great, can't wait.

This is awesome!

I can't believe it. September call-ups, waivers, salary arbitration, etc. I could go on and on and on!

We get another difficulty level!

My lord.

That Fenway screen looks incredible.

J-Rob did a good job on the points.

This is sounding like the surefire Baseball GOAT we all hoped it would be folks.

Nice...."There is also a cool Roster Vault option where gamers can create their own custom rosters and upload them online for other gamers to use."

That Fenway shot looks AMAZING. Looks just like it under the roof there. The lighting is MUCH IMPROVED in night games, as well as you can noticed the different lighting cycle in the day ones in the first shot.

And the crowd diversity is a major upgrade. Nice to see the new Sox uni's in the Yankee shot as well!

And the features galore ... WOW!

I am thoroughly impressed. It just keeps getting better and better!

I'm sure they didn't change everything from last year and just wanted to include the whole list of features. I remember they did that for 08 as well.

What they did change is good enough for me! Way to go SCEA guys!

I wonder if this was a misprint and meant to say PS3 Only. I think we need some confirmation. Would not make sense really.

Oh my goodness!!! I really didn't think this game could get that much better. This for me the only true must buy of the year. Peace!!!
