Anyone pick up either of the new baseball games out today?
I'm a "The Show" man myself, and even last year bought 11' for the PS2, but this year I went with 2K12 for XBox 360.

I want to play online, and want the updates, etc.

I'll just have to get used to the 2K. I haven't really read anything about either, I'm sure they're both good.

So, the one thing I don't like/haven't figured out yet is pitch selection while batting.

In The Show there's a "Guess" function, you can guess fastball everytime, and work off that.
In 2K you have to visually see what's coming???

I miss the guess.
The pitching angle is from pitchers POV, don't like that yet either.

Taking a break from the show this year. I've bought the past 3 years and played the hell out of the games (especially RTTS) but feel I need to take a year off.

I haven't played either this year, but MLB 2k series has been DOGSHIT the past few years. Sorry, absolutely. :(

I really haven't enjoyed a baseball game since EA lost the rights. MLB 03 was the shit in college. Roommate and I played a full 162 game season in under a month. God I miss college

I got 2k last night. Can't change camera view while batting in the my player. Would like to get the show but hated how hard the rtts was.

I feel the same way MVP was the shit I have been playing the 2k games since but haven't enjoyed them as much as the EA games. EA in my opinion makes the best sports games. Thank god they still have NHL With that said I picked up 2k12 today and am excited to play tonight

So after like 2-3 weeks of playing 2K12, I've officially labeled it crap. So I went out tonight to just buy The Show on PS2, and couldn't find it... turns out they didn't make it for PS2 this year :(

I just can't bring myself to buy a PS3 basically for 1 game. Granted, I'd play this game a TON (daily). Maybe I'll look for a used PS3, but I really only play sports games, so a Xbox360 and PS3 seems excessive

buy a used ps3. I bought one used over 4 years ago and it still runs fine(it did get louder but thats it). they're pretty cheap

The cheapest one I'm seeing on CL is like $190.
So if that's the case, I'd just get a new one.

It seems like 90% of people think 2K is a crappy game, from the message boards and reviews I've read
