Hitting is hard enough already in the show without switching to the broadcast view. I will take scoring more than 2 runs a game over the most "realistic" broadcast view.

Why are his baserunner icons black? Aren't mine yellow?

I'm talking about the circles on the diamond OSD.

What's the deal? Black actually looks pretty good!

Most authentic would have all the meters, guess pitch, pitch select display and swing info turned off as well.

Exactly. I've recorded some videos from MLB 13 and people asked me if it was a CPU vs. CPU game because of all the things that were adjusted. Granted, I had my own batting cam when I was hitting, but everything else meanwhile was turned off. I also tweaked the audio sliders to be more like a TV presentation as well.

This video just says "change all cameras to Broadcast and turn off the strike zone."

I feel you can pick up the ball movement MUCH better when hitting from broadcast view.

Nothing new here. Hardball on the C64 was using that pitching/hitting view 30 years ago. The evolution to a realistic catcher view to hit with real ball physics from that perspective is the way the game is meant to be played. It will also hone your pitch recognition skills on the real field. Turn off strike zone and bat circle too. Lets get real!

It's a video game. If I wanted the "most authentic broadcast presentation" possible I'd just watch the real thing.

I'm trying to hit & score runs. Anything other than a behind-the-plate catcher view defeats that purpose for me. Could never do it. Good on you, if you can.

I cannot get depth preception from that view. It's much easier to pick up location, but timing it jist seems impossible for me.

I might give it a shot. I already turn almost everything off anyways.

I love this. I think Broadcast view really immerses you in the experience. It does take getting used to, but I personally feel its worth the investment. I wish other sports games (hello Madden?) would attempt to simulate telecast quality like The Show does. Proper camera angles, cuts and edits, tickers, stat overlays, game breaks, highlights with smart dynamic commentary are the polish that bring sports video games to life.

USING BROadcast view for hitting does anyone have any hitting tips?
