Not bad. Again, real-time is epic.

Yankee Stadium was empty for that game.

28,000 attendance.

Yankee Stadium issues...

There is going to be a manual scoreboard on the right field fence, and Also, the fences are going to be navy blue, rather than regular blue.

I'm willing to bet the dev team didn't have that information in time to make sure it was in the game. I'm sure you Yankee fans will let them know anyways.....

I'm really happy with the way the game is coming out but the only gripe I have & I have seen in every video is that the CPU swings at almost everything close to the strike zone. I understand doing that when you're down on the count but on the first pitch every single time? I hope it can be fixed with sliders. Other than that I'm very impressed with the game. I can look passed all the jerky things other people have mentioned.

So far, I'm pretty impressed with the videos I've seen. It's not perfect but what game really is. Obviously it's not on par with The Show and probably never will be given that it's a few years behind in development.

Also, given that VC has only had 1 year to work with this game I see a lot of movement in the right direction. I'm optimistic that I'll have a pretty good baseball game to play this year for the 360. After the last few years I'll take it.

Well, that human player is just serving them fastballs right down the middle.

I must say the damage control team really has done an amazing job within a year. But there is only so much you can do in a year with a title that had so many flaws. I mean the players in 2k9 look flatter in a day game than the players in MLB 08 did in a night game.

But they're definitely going in the right direction!

I totally agree with you about the computer swings at everything! I hope sliders can fix this because thi would be a major issue for me. Has anybody seen the computer go deep into a pitch count?

In reference to the CPU swing @ everything, it may have been the difficulty people were playing on. What does concern me is if it happens no matter what difficulty you play on. Reasoning being VC took out ALL the AI Take Pitch Sliders. Now everything that has to do with AI Batting looks like this:



I'm figuring that the sliders we want to mess with to get the AI to take pitches would be the 1's in the middle..

From what we've seen & heard VC has really put a lot of emphasis on Inside Edge this year. They've supposedly tied IE into Player Ratings & for me this is scary because VC has never been good with ratings. They always Over-Rate in their games.

Now yes we have 2k share & can edit to our hearts content, but for those of us who also play online boy oh boy...

Even though its not a big deal it just looks sloppy; and that is the missing frame when batters go into their stances. 3 years and counting now they havent been able to correct a subtle problem.

Also is it just me or is there a missing frame when Sabathia releases the ball? It doesnt seem to be a smooth transition when the ball comes out of his hand.

The shot gun soundmade when the ball hit the bat for that infield fly ball was hysterical.

I also agree I hope they tone down the CPU swinging at everything, last year you could never ring a batter up looking.

Why can't they find a way to replace the hat and logo with the correct team? Minor gripe but it takes away from the presentation imo.

I would like to see when a player gets traded to have them with the correct team logo and hat. It would be difficult to do, but I think it's possible. Or maybe let us edit this in the game, with a uniform/logo editor in the game. Now that would be cool!

I'm getting the PC version of the game, hopefully there will be an editor someone will make that will allow for us to edit this.

With regards to sliders, do they give descriptions on what they affect?
