MLB 10 News Post

Gamespot's week-long look at MLB '10: The Show kicks off today with details on Road to the Show mode, new training drills, and new pickoff moves.

Quote:
"There's a reason Sony's MLB: The Show baseball series is one of the most critically acclaimed sports series year in and year out. In addition to genre-stretching innovative features, such as Road to the Show, the development team at Sony's San Diego studio is consistently focused on the infinitesimal details that make baseball (and, by extension, sports games) so beloved. The result is a conundrum from a game design standpoint, however. While the actual sport of baseball doesn't change in a fundamental sense, there are 1,001 changes that happen from season to season--players retire or change teams, acquire a new batting stance, or change the colors of the laces on their gloves. And it's these little details that fans of the sport (and the games) are paying attention to just as intently as the back-of-the-box features."

Just wish I had hi-def TV. It looks good on reg, but I want that sorround sound too. Just makes it feel like you're at the game.

Just curious about franchise. What do you guys play? I can't play 162 games 9 innings long. I don't like baseball that much, so normally I stick to RTTS.

I miss the managerial part though. Does anyone play anything other than 9 inning games, 162 of them?

From Gamespot:

And holding down the face button with the L2 button will attempt a deceptive pickoff. This is where the pitcher attempts to disguise his pickoff throw for as long as possible and only chooses to throw to a base at the last possible moment. To accompany the ruse, the pitching meter will move as normal during a deceptive pickoff attempt, which means there's a chance your buddy will fall for it when playing a multiplayer game.

Tune in tomorrow for a look at the online options in MLB 10: The Show.

Oh man, this is GREAT news. This should eliminate the fools online who like to quick steal all the time! And I can't wait for the online report from gamespot tomorrow

I went into a little more depth about the pickoff system in the impressions thread if you are interested. Just a heads up!

Honestly, since its still an "automatic" return to the base, I dont think it will be exposed this year. Wait til '11 when it becomes manual.....LoL!

If you preload your steal and they perform a deceptive pickoff the runner takes off and does not automatically return to the bag like the other pickoffs.
