If online play is smooth then yes, I'll use it.

These online franchise's only work if online play is good.

I always found it very difficult to play online with The Show... If a connection is slightly off, it makes for a terrible experience trying to play a game that's all about timing

which is beyond frustrating because MVP NCAA Baseball 06 was by far the most lag free sports game I ever played

If they improved the quality of their online stability it may change, but again maybe not a lot of people are really awful offensively and swing away at anything and want nothing but strikes thrown all game online

Not a online player,but glad for the people who wanted it.

Hey, if online is still lagging there's still MOM. You're the manager. Bottom of the 8th, bases loaded, tie runner on 2nd. You bring in that hard-throwing lefty against my lefty hitter. I counter that move with a righty hitter and he goes yard on ya!

With the wider timing window online hitting was extremely easy at default last year. I think some of you guys should pop in '13 and see what I'm talking about.

I can't play online, just because being visually impaired, I have to turn on auto fielding. I do my own throwing, but no auto fielding kills it for me.

I'm not an online guy....

But I think those who play online will be REALLY happy with the online franchise this year.

Heck....there might even be something there that makes me play an online franchise this time around.

Not an Online guy, but hope it works well for those that enjoy Online gaming.

The mental aspect of baseball is what makes it so fun online imo. CPU just seems to be random with where/what pitch it is. Human opponents will find your weaknesses and exploit them until you adjust much more effectively.

Online just doesn't do it for me either. If it was more stable I might give it a try. Otherwise I'll stick to Franchise offline.

The game isn't even out yet. How do you know how stable it is?

Because, we've been buying the game for the last 8 years. It's notorious for having framerate issues, lag, disconnects, etc. when playing online. The SCEA guys never really address it (they have in the past, but it wasn't a noticeable enough of an improvement).

It's just widely assumed nothing can be done (at least this for this gen) to fix the problem.
