I don't know about others but the graphics barely look changed. The stadiums need some upgrade I don't know why but they feel sort of arcade/cartoonish, not exactly representing how the actual stadiums are, I don't know how to properly say it.

None. They will once again ignore the complete lack of career stat tracking weakening their aged Franchise mode even more. Also, I thought direction hitting was already implemented. I'm fairly certain a button could be held in combination with an analog stick to influence push, pull, ground ball, or pop fly.

I am looking forward to the RTTS Save continuation being able to play my current player from the show 14 to 15 without having to remake a new player is AWESOME

None of these upgrades really stand out to me.

So far this radio show they're going to have. I look forward hearing more

Of the choices mentioned above, I'd go with "Improved Graphics" if I knew how much of an improvement we were actually going to get this year. The teaser doesn't reveal much but it could have been built using older assets, who knows.

I chose "Other" because the promise of new stadiums is interesting, even if they only end up being fictional MiLB stadiums. I spend a lot of time in the minors in RttS so it would be nice to see a wider variety.

All in all, I'm really just happy to look forward to a new version of The Show. I have plenty of faith that whatever they end up adding this year will be worth a purchase.

Honesty, year after year..Graphics seem to have little to no changes. I've never really been a fan of the show's gameplay as players seem to look awkward making catches, throwing and fielding routines. Please change the sound of the ball coming off the bat! It sounds the same for every god damn time you make contact.you foul a ball off and think you made solid contact because of the crack of the bat.needs to go!! The game needs more of a live atmosphere. It gets boring sitting around playing a 9 inning game. Thank god for the pitch count option. I wanna see a drastic change come 2015..allow more features for create a player..add more hairstyles not just the typical 8 potato heads.

Right now we know very little. Last year at this time Carry-Over Saves & Quick Count had already been announced. So for now I would say Radio Show.
BUT the fact Nike Louisville Slugger & Rawlings is now a Show partner has such great potential, it's a close second. I don't particularly care for added stuff like that but if these companies are paying SCEA to use the Show as marketing platform for their products, then THAT could lead to & pay for other, bigger, better things that would excite me for Show 16.

Directional Hitting announcement slightly concerns me, considering that it's already a part of the game, they even had a training mode just for it in MLB 14. Ball physics code they have, already allows us to take directional approaches to the plate, so the announcement of it as a feature for this year seems to me like they are making a gimmicky gameplay feature for it, that I'll never use and hope its not forced on the game. But I really just look toward hearing them explain what they mean to do about it.

Graphics I guess is the most exciting announcement, especially assuming that we'll finally have a proper nighttime outfield in certain ballparks that wasn't given to us last year. And maybe closed versions of retractable roof stadiums finally, which is nearly a must for me by now. Without overhauling player models in my opinion, then I don't really expect to be "overly" impressed, but I want to see what they to say about that.

People will be excited about the radio show, but they are already beaten to the punch in this by FIFA. I just expect them to mimick FIFA's radio presentation during career mode's which will be welcomed but I don't expect something earth shattering.

The best thing I can hope for as for major features is with the directional hitting actually. I've always hoped they gave us more control over the player swing mechanics for every plate appearance so I hope that it has something to do with that kind of thing.

They need to really address presentation upgrades because as of right now, they are probably last place in presentation, which is oddest of all for a game like baseball, which you would think maximizes presentation above nearly all other things except gameplay. FIFA 15s presentation techniques for example are already years ahead of MLB The Show, and there are other title's that usually excel at presentation.

The Radioshow and Graphics.

If player personality means type of playing style: All-Out hustling type players to the diametrically opposed (players that don't both to run out infield grounders, etc) and all the types in between....the possibilities would be amaazing for roster creators.


Directional hitting looks promising too.

The potential of the radio show to immerse players more in RTTS and Franchise.

Could be cool in a later game to have the radio show mixed with a monthly or a few times per season video that recaps the highlights, records and division races.
 
# 15 statum71 @ 12/10/14 09:47 PM
I know I'm in the minority....

But I'd like my season mode to be more immersing. That feeling of my season being it's own living world. So I was hoping for a weekly studio show.

So I wanna hear about the radio show. Maybe that's as close as I'll get.

Completely agree with this. Nothing stands out right now and career stat tracking has been awful so far. I can't even see the amount of stolen bases a player had the previous year...inexcusable. they still have time though

Directional hitting is the most exciting for me; however, I'm fairly certain it won't work correctly since timing and location have little effect on hits these days. In fact, I just pulled a high outside fastball with a late swing. So either the feedback or physics is wrong.

physics aren't perfect, but in combination with its default gameplay sliders it will ruin the experience.

No Create-a-Team? <-- THAT WOULD BE AWESOME!, ESPECIALLY WITH CUSTOM LEAGUES AND ETC.
No Create-a-Ballpark?
No Custom Music?
No Old-School Guess Pitch option?
No Thank You. :/

Ughhh, and that's definitely what I'm worried about. I've never been that impressed with Madden but EA just seemed to get even more lazy with it once they no longer had any market competition. I really hope the same doesn't start to happen with this series.
