  1. Frame rate looked a little rough in spots, similar to what I experienced on the Xbox One S with 21. Wasn't expecting much graphically and I'm used to playing The Show on Vita, so I'm willing to sacrifice looks for gameplay.
    NBA 2K has locked 30fps on Switch and it plays really well, imo. I hope The Show can get there, too.

    Yes you can :)

    That's a nice feature. I tried to play on my computer with the cloud feature but it is too laggy for baseball.
    This is great having this on the switch, but man what I would do to have it on the mobile side via an app. Just basic modes like home run derby, diamond dynasty moments, etc. Or whatever they could fit in!

    So I can play my Franchise on the Xbox then head to bed and continue on the switch?

    Sold
    Wife is upset cause I told her I wouldnt have to buy it this year due to gamepass, but I cant pass this up. When she wants the TV, or when I am at lunch at work, I can play the show.
    I had said I’d be cautious buying this year but forgot it was coming to switch. Most years I wait until the first sale to buy but may have to so I have a baseball game on the go.
    I like that they're allowing you to transfer saves between consoles. Playing on PS5 at home then Switch on business travel will make things a little more fun on the road.
    Ohtani's model looked really good to me.
    Seems they got his body type right. Maybe this means there will be more body types and other players will look more accurate.

    I noticed his stride was dead on. I'm guessing he got to do all his own mo-cap.
    Has anyone played any other sports games on Switch? I don't yet have a Switch but have been considering buying one and might end up doing so now that The Show will be available on it.
    Am I likely to have access to all of the same features as on PS5? Will I be able to adjust sliders on the Switch for example? Will I have access to the vault etc? Stadium creator?
    I appreciate that no one knows for sure because The Show has never been available on the Switch before but I'm hoping people might have some insight based on experiences with the Switch itself and other games.

    No stadium creator. Likely Roster Vault. I think this will be a graphically trimmed version of the PS4 version of the game.
    I have played NBA 2k on my Switch. Did an entire season, but I had to make changes to how I played. For example, shot release. I could not time it well on the Switch, so I turned off its effects on the shot accuracy. I could see something similar with location hitting on The Show.
    I have also played Fifa and that, while graphically not on par with PS4 or 5, was stupendous. No changes in gameplay are required for the small screen.
    I have also played Super Mega Baseball on the Switch and it plays really well. but it's an arcade game.
    I cannot wait to have this on the Switch.

    Oh I've heard/read that FIFA is straight garbage on the Switch!
    Do those games have slider settings still? Do you anticipate The Show having adjustable sliders?

    FIFA, at least the ones I've played, runs very smooth on Switch. NBA 2K locks in at 30fps. The stability is nice, especially in handheld mode.
    All settings and sliders are available in the games and The Show shouldn't be any different in this regard. Graphics and framerate are the biggest differences, but they are near-identical when it comes to modes and features.

    One thing to point out is that I only play handheld. I have no idea what any game looks or runs like docked.
