MLB 2K11 News Post


Teamxbox has just posted their Major League Baseball 2K11 preview.

Quote:
"The ball physics have been rewritten so that its reactions to dirt, grass and brick are all new. The the ball can fade in different directions and it isn't always the difference of a single pixel for a strike or a ball. Runners caught between bases can hold the two triggers rather than tap a single direction so that they can make the call when to run at the right moment. And overall errors don't happen randomly. They claimed you won't see the same fielding mistakes present in MLB 2K9. Errors are situation-dependent in that yes, a shortstop might just fumble a hard grounder, but a pop-fly won't be missed under the right conditions.

Phillies pitcher Roy Halladay provided advice and suggestions for a lot of the development process. He correct the dev team when they had something wrong and explained how certain situations in the game work out from his point of view. This expert testimony from the big leagues definitely pays off in the game as it all further exemplifies the attention to detail found in this experience."

"First of all, when you hit the ball into the outfield, the camera hangs back as though you're watching the ball fly from the batter's perspective. This gives less of a tell to the outfielders where it's going to land, much like in the real world."
The details of the new game are sounding better with each new preview. The new camera from the batter's perspective sounds interesting, can't wait to actually see some game play with this view.

Good that we're getting some solid details about MLB 2K11. Even better that the news appears to be positive.

I don't understand your question, what do you mean?

No, I believe they mean when we are fielding the ball the camera will stay looking at the batter just like in real life. You will be looking at the fly ball coming towards you. I love this idea if the camera works properly.

I am getting excited for this game, I was ready to skip out on MLB this year, but I mean, they are making this game sound like a great title that may provide an exciting game for the 2011 season!

Game sounds like it is heading in the right direction. Nice read!!!

Good read. The new ball physics sound nice. I'm definitely looking forward to playing this.

I'm about to start making my payments

Another great read here. In the span of a week, I have went from being disinterested, to now being very interested. If player progression is fixed, this could be an interesting sleeper candidate.

I also feel that we should stop comparing this to MLB 11 like in some of the other threads. It's a different game with different goals, etc, and most importantly on another system that many of us most likely don't have.

This new outfield camera looks like its gonna need some getting use to.

We finally get a sneak on how the Dynamic Player Rating will work. Sounds very interesting to say the least.
I'm glad to hear they've addressed the ball physics. Just hoping they also addressed the bat & ball physics.

another preview, another level of interested piqued. 2K is taking the right strides here. Liking what I'm hearing.

Unless the demo really turns me off, I will be getting 2 baseball games this year. I'm really liking what I've been reading about 2K11. It could be the sports "sleeper hit" of 2011.

I'm confused. I don't see where you got that you will be looking at the ball coming toward you. Maybe I read it wrong.

I really like the idea of tracking balls in the outfield. Almost every game has made it too easy to do this and only speed mattered. About the only game that you really had to judge balls in the outfield was on Star League Baseball on the PC many years ago.

The previews sound good so far.
 
# 15 Eddie1967 @ 01/22/11 05:27 PM
Another nice preview.
 
# 16 Money99 @ 01/22/11 05:38 PM
Great preview! So far I'm loving a lot of the things I'm hearing.
Now I need an indepth preview of the My Player mode. I'm very excited for this game!

I will still hold the hitting model suspect. That was my least favorite portion of the game last year. I'm really hoping they've redone the entire control scheme and added more hit variety.
 
# 18 jeffy777 @ 01/23/11 09:10 PM
I think the hit variety is pretty good in 2K10, but it could use some improvement. I actually like having the different swing types as well, but I do wish it was easier to check swing with the right stick. Other than that, I really like the hitting as it is.

Good preview, im really hoping this game is good, last year was a good step, but so far from what i need to playing a good game and especially lasting me a couple of months. 2k i really hope you made a good game this year.
