So they're gonna release on the same day as MLB 15 The Show on PS4, good luck with that.

Don't think it even really matters at this point.

I might pick this up for iOS for a baseball game on the go. But releasing this the same day as "The Show"? Bad idea.

I'm picking up the Show and this for the PS4 just for the hope that I can play a solid online game against someone on the RBI game. I know it's arcade style baseball, but I'll live with that in order to play online baseball again.

Stat tracking across "multiple seasons"? Meaning career/franchise mode? Color me intrigued!

I found it impossible to judge a fly ball/pop up in the last game. I bought for the nostalgia factor and I probably played it for 15 minutes and never touched it again. Probably gonna pass on it this year.

I am an Xbox one owner so I am glad this is dropping tuesday. It sounds like they did alot of detail work to the game with all of the data points. I am getting it since I have no baseball game other than RBI. Releasing it the same day as The Show won't help or hurt it, since it is a digital game.

Only interested if there is a Steam version.

You should just wait for MLB Manager from OOTP

Lol, this company is idiotic IMO. If you were close to having a game done, why the EFF would you not have released it a couple of weeks before The Show. No, people weren't going to pass on the Show for it, but those on the ps4 front who have been waiting and counting down the days to the show might have been willing to buy this as a two week play to pass the time.

Smart guys, real smart.

I own both a Xbox one and a PS4 and I will say that as a sports gamer I am picking this up before The Show.. Why you may ask? Because out of all the sports games I play, baseball is actually the lowest on my list for favorites. I love the sport, don't get me wrong, but as a 38 year old gamer, coach, father and husband I just can't get into a game on The Show because I don't have time. I like RBI because I can sit down for 20 minutes, play a game and get my baseball fill. I honestly think I'm the type of crowd they are going for with this game.

You don't know until you play it.
 
# 13 jahswill @ 03/27/15 10:18 AM
It would be nice to see some gameplay before Tuesday. Is that to much to ask?
 
# 14 jpollack34 @ 03/29/15 05:40 PM
FYI it's been posted on Steam. Release date is April 30th for Steam. I'm going to wait for that version. By that time there should be some good reviews from trusted sources as well.

Agree totally. The Show is just too much for the VERY casual baseball fan like me.
Although,after last years RBI ,,,I'll wait on this one. Last year's was terrible.

Clearly based that comment on last years version.
 
# 17 ILuvMN81 @ 03/30/15 04:49 PM
Yep. For those of us without PS4 this the option.

Glad to see they're adding some details like authentic stadiums, etc.

Anybody picking it up today? I'm curious to read impressions. I'll be getting it for iOS when it gets released next week (and would've bought it for 360 if they had released it on there).
 
# 19 shogunofharlem3 @ 03/31/15 08:12 AM
Just went to xbox.com and it is still unavailable. Says 4/1 for release. I'm interested in some impressions as well.

Ya, I tweeted Major Nelson and the RBI account, will update if I hear back.
