A detailed comparison of MLB 2K8 and MLB 08: The Show. Which game excels in each area and which one ultimately comes out on top?
so much for xplay's reviews.
X-Play and G4 are just biased. They're pro-Microsoft. Every other website rated The Show higher than that 2K8 garbage EXCEPT for XPlay. This is all the proof I needed. G4TV sucks.
G4 SHOWED they were biased long ago
This is one of the view times I've agreed with a review 100%. The Show is a fun and addictive game. Building up your Road to the Show player whether it be a pitcher, catcher, infielder or outfielder is a blast!
they are pro MS so why did they make that red ring of death video? oh yeah, pro MS ....
Kigmal, the same reason that some gay people (not that there is anything wrong with that, seriously!) date people of the opposite sex. To hide something. Again, not that there is anything wrong with that!
I played mlb 08 the show and that game is SWEEEEET!!!! And this coming from someone that doesn't even like baseball or baseball games. Yet I found myself loving that game.
MLB The Show wins hands down ...
If you want to see a lame review of The Show check out X-Play's review. They gave it a 3 out of 5. And they gave that other game a 4. I guess if The Show was on the Xbox 1.5 they might have chosen The Show. X-Play sure pushes the Xbox 1.5 and Xbox Live.
2k8 would have been better had I bought T2
I don't even LIKE baseball and I'm buying the show. I never had so much fun with a sports game before.
this comparison is useless.. MLB2k8 looks like LEGO MLB compare to THE SHOW.. (characters looks like they r made by plastic ! ) lighting,details,animations,g ameplay,textures...etc all of them in THE SHOW are head and shoulders above 2k8 ..
Everybody knows that X-play should be called (given the banned vocabulary, it rhymes with X-Lot). Adam Sessler is a VERY well known MS fanatic, and when he's not being a balding fanboy, he's going around saying things that could be best described as thinly-veiled PS3 bashing that he tries to pass off as "advice to help sony". Oh well, with any luck G4 will be off the air soon, given it's been the lowest rated cable network for about the past 3 years.
MLB 2K8 = 360 BABOONS MLB 08: The Show = Sophisticated PS3 gamers Bill Gates = AAHAHAHAHHAHHAHAHHA
Says that MLB 2k8 is better then the Show. Sorry but Adam and Morgan are the best and never lie about a game review. Don't you have to install the game! Hahahahhahahahahaahaa
the show's graphics is good but no variety in weather. In mlb 08 its either clear sunny skies or clear night, no rain, no cloudy skies, no evening games where the sun is going down then transitions to night. that's just lazyiness from Sony. I like mlb 2k8 grafics better with real time dynamic lighting.
If you know baseball, this has to be one of the dumbest questions of all time. When it snows, or rains, baseball games get DELAYED. I mean hoenstly, you can't bash a game for a stupider reason especially a baseball game.
The Show >>>>>>> 2K
i also get the sense that x play and attack of the show are pro x-box. starting to watch it less and less.
The commentary is better than a real baseball games
I haven't played a baseball game as fun as The Show since little leauge all stars for NES.
I have never had so much fun with a baseball video game in my life. The Show is an awesome game.
I was a fan of 2K Baseball what happened I don't know! Sony made A real WEB GEM with this one. I feel sorry for XBOTS that have no real Baseball game. 2K just sucks this year!!!!!
Damn. I feel kind of bad for 360 owners who love baseball. I knew 2K8 wasn't better than The Show but damn...
The show hands down the greatest baseball game ever created. finally espn is right about something
The Show wins hands down. 1080P while 2k8 runs @ 720 with a framerate issue, online league play, the road to the show mode, deeper franchise mode, and not mention you get a free MLB hat when you buy the game.
but even a stupid can say what the better game is.
there's no competition here!!!!
Has anyone ever played Pro Yakyuu 4 from Japan? Even though the game's been out over a year now, graphically it makes The Show look like a PS2 game IMHO. I also enjoy the batting mechanics and crowd atmosphere better than The Show. When I played the game on our big screen at home in view mode (CPU vs. CPU) my host father, a true baseball fan, for 10 minutes actually thought it was a real game and was actually cheering for the home team (^o^;) It was funny 'cause we were all watching him and none of us said anything! If you haven't seen it, check it out: http://media.ps3.ign.com/me... Anyway, I 100% applaud this comparison. These are the kind of comparisons we need, comparing game vs. game instead of those retarded X360 vs. PS3 comparisons that GameTrailers loves to do. I own both systems and personally I could care less about such minuscule differences. I'll enjoy the game either way. But this is good. Comparing one game on two systems is, in my opinion, little incentive for a developer to make a better game. But comparing one baseball game to another is. And, as a gamer, I am also more likely to find myself stuck on which of two different games to buy rather than on which system do I buy one game. As my teachers would never say to me, Good job!
i dont know about the show looking like a ps2 game lolz besides the game your compareing it too is a jap baseball league with prolly dont have half as many teams as the show does and prolly wouldnt even undestand it if we inported to the usa. but hands down the show owns mlb 2k8 theres no compition i never really liked baseball after playing like a few games id get bored and sim the season but in the show i actully like playing the games even tho i usly looose lol havent got the hitting down yet but when i do ill be powning some people online
