Take Two's fiscal lineup for 2013 omits the MLB 2K franchise. With the ending of the third party license that could be a sign it will not be returning.
2K baseball is garbage and should be scrapped
Take Two have came out and said that MLB 2K12 is the last entry in the series. Take-Two Interactive, the parent company of 2K Sports, notably left Major League Baseball 2K out of its planned releases in its coming fiscal year. Kotaku asked Take-Two Interactive if it could confirm the end of the series, and it did. "Our legacy Major League Baseball agreement will sunset in fiscal 2013," a Take-Two spokesman said, meaning in the coming 12 calendar months. "MLB 2K12 is our last offering under that agreement. At this time, we have no further comment."
Drop MLB and pick up NFL.. The show has been far better then mlb 2k for awhile
2K baseball is an embarrassment compared to the Show even the $1million pitching contest could not save this franchise. So does this mean the only way to play a MLB game is on the PS3/Vita?
2k was a cash crop b/c it was like having an exclusive on the xbox. There was never any vast improvement with this franchise. Part of the reason I went PS3 back in 08 was The Show.
I would love so much for "The Show's" developers to be able to make their game for the 360 as well. From what I played theirs is just so much better. EA also made some good baseball games before 2K got the exclusive rights so I wouldn't mind seeing that. And I wish 2K would be able to make NFL games
I guess it is unfortunate for 360 users that The Show is developed by Sony themselves. Maybe someone else will pick up the rights, like EA. But for now, Sony's the Show really is the better baseball game of recent times.
but sony took the crown this gen. we can all thank 2k though for keeping EA from locking up baseball like they did football. f#ck EA and their monopoly tactics.
The only real great thing about 2K's Baseball was the pitching mechanics. The Show is a much better game all around, but single button pitching options is a relic of a feature. After using the 2K pitching, I will NEVER go back to a single button pitch. The Show really needs to incorporate the pitching mechanics in order to be the ultimate baseball experience. Throwing a curve ball, slider, off speed pitch, sinker, fastball and 2 seam fastball should NEVER be as simple as just pressing a button. Having to make the appropriate sequence to perform that particular pitch allows for the player to either make a perfect pitch or make an error in his/her pitch like in real life. I hope EA comes back and makes a Baseball game. I can see them using the analog sticks and perfecting the game using 2K's achievements and ironing out 2K's issues.
MLB 12 the Show has analog pitching. All you have to do is go to the settings and change it.
Sony has put analog pitching in the game since MLB 11: The Show. A little research would keep you from always looking like an idiot. MLB: The Show is the highest selling AND highest rated baseball game of all time. http://www.youtube.com/watc...
That is NOT a true pitch mechanic. It's the same pitching motion. You pick the pitch and then it's the same motion for every pitch. THIS is the pitching mechanics that I was talking about. A different motion for each type of pitch and the pitcher who is throwing the ball. http://www.youtube.com/watc... Maybe you should do some research yourself.
