3. "Other Differences Between the PS3 and 360


The 360 version simply looks better. The colors pop. The animations, at this point, run smoother. So much for spending $600.


To top it off, while full 30-man online leagues will be available on the 360, right now the PS3 plan is for up to 12-man leagues (although the team is pushing hard to get 30-man teams in the PS3 version as well, but it might be too much to ask).


What do you get if you're a PS3 owner? You get the ability to swing your bat by pushing the controller forward in a motion like you're sliding the soup back to the waiter because you just found a fly in your minestrone. First swing I took with the PS3 controller, I hit a homerun. Does that mean it's too easy? We'll wait and see, but something like this, in my opinion, would be better off left to the homerun derby. If you're preaching authenticity, it seem contradictory to then all of a sudden tell people that they have hold the controller flat out in front of their body then push it forward to swing. At least when you're playing Wii Sports, you're swinging the controller like a bat. Here, something about the experience just seems awkward. You can keep the soup."



"One thing about location and gameplay that's missing on the PS3, though, is the ability to feel the location of your pitches through the rumble. Obviously, there is no rumble on the PS3 controller, so how are you supposed to hide your location from the batter by using the rumble to know when you're out of the strike zone? IGN's own Hilary Goldstein brought this up during the demo and it was something I never even thought about before, but he's right. PS3 owners are going to have a hell of a time hiding their pitch location in 2-player contests unless 2K comes up with a new way for pitchers to know when their moving out of the zone."

maybe its a subpar port because sony, in their infinite wisdom, decided to eliminate a staple of console controllers for the last 10 years (rumble). as mentioned in the preview, i'd LOVE to know how they plan on overcoming this in multiplayer...

I like baseball and implore 2K Sports to repair any graphics and framerate issues on the PS3 before releasing the game. There seems to be a similar difference in NBA 2K7 in terms of smoother gameplay on the 360. If I am going to be charged the same price for a game, I expect the same level of performance, especially when other games such as RFOM prove the PS3 can perform up to task. I will wait for a final review and then consider if the gameplay problems have been fixed. If not, I'll check out MLB 2007 for the PS3 instead. If neither takes advantage of the power of the PS3, then I will follow the lead of 1994 MLB and have my own version of a baseball lockout.

I think what we are experiencing is that because the 360 is more established, easier to program for, and has enjoyed a year headstart that most multiplatform games are simply going to be designed for the 360 and then ported to the PS3.


Therefore its going to be theorectically impossible for the PS3 version to match the 360 version tit for tat. Unless they put more development dollars into the extra time and resources needed specifically to make the PS3 excel.

That's my opinion. With two machines that are nearly the same in power, games will probably look and play a bit better on the one they've had a year head start on. This wont last, but in the short term until devs 'get their legs' I bet it continues.

For us PS3 owners, we are going to be lucky enough to enjoy last years best Baseball game, Sony's own MLB: The Show 07..... at least we have a choice with our console...


for those of you who don't know about Sony's MLB series here's a review from last years version....


gamespot*dot*com/ps2/sports/mlb06theshow/index..... *I can't provide a direct link because of my post count but you get the Idea*


9.0 from Gamespot, for a sports title (let alone a Baseball) its great.....


i have enjoyed a MLB series for the past 3-4 years......


its crazy that if you want the best Basketball game you go with 2k series and not Sony's NBA


But if you wanted the Best Baseball game you go with Sony's MLB and not with the 2k series....(the 2k series for the last few years have been horrible...)


And I know the MVP fans might disagree....but I personally stop liking EAs Baseball games after TriplePlay 2000 for the PSone.......

Sub par port? Why does the word "port" keep getting tossed around as an excuse? This game was developed on both at the same time. Its a cross platform title not a 360 port!

Most people probably assumed this was just an update to the 2K6 engine they released on the 360 last year.
