Game On!: MLB 2K13 vs. The Show

The Final Points JD Luca does a head to head review of the MLB games this year 2K13 and the show: Today we take a look at MLB 2K13 and MLB 13: The Show. Obviously there was a lot more effort put into the latter, but there are still good things in 2K that Sony has yet to address. I broke it down by graphics, gameplay, presentation, career, franchise, and the overall final verdict. (MLB 13: The Show, MLB 2K13, PS Vita, PS3, Xbox 360)

Haha, is this a joke? MLB 2K can't compete with MLB: The Show.
showtimefolks  +   737d ago
It's not even competition, competition is when both sides compete but 2K just released the 2012 version with no morovemmts as this years game since they know 3rd party wise they are the only ones offering a MLB game to Xbox fans

Since they no longer have the exclusive contract with MLB, I think we will see EA make a huge return Into MLB with MVP baseball

2k basketball is great
2k NHL game sucked
2k MLB games use to be aight but now suck

So true, basketball is all they have going for them

In terms of stats, and how the games feels and flows like a baseball franchise yes it can compete.

2k is better at Non-playing realism and the hitting mechanics are far superior.

Everything else is probably in The Show's favor though.

ahhahaa
exactly the point they have two things I would want firing managers mid season and the commentary

The show is the king of baseball sims. as much as part of me wants to be an "average gamer" who just enjoys the mainstream releases, ive just never been a fan of sports games. that said however, The show series has really managed to show me that there is a lot of fun to be had with sports simulators. quality stuff.

I am picking up The Show next month. I am so greatly disappointed with 2K's MLB 13 this year I have decided never to buy a 2K MLB title ever.

2K13 is a real embarrassment. I still would rather the true pitching mechanic over The Shows, but everything else in The Show is just so much more better.

I just need to buy a better controller for my PS3. I need a more ergonomically correct controller with offset analog sticks to play.

OK... I'm going to write the article:

"Game On!: MLB 2K13 vs. The Show"

No comparison. MLB2K13 is not even close to being in the same league as The Show.

The End.

I just read the article. I pretty much says what I said in a lot more words. :)

"Overall if you have an Xbox don’t waste your money on 2k, even if it’s the only baseball game for you just update the 2k12 rosters because there are freezing problems, glitches in the game, good commentary just doesn’t save it this time.

If you have a PlayStation 3 or Vita buy the Show. It continues to be the best baseball game available with new features and modes, the game just needs to add a bunch more for next year to make it truly superior. Thank goodness 2k is done making baseball games. Hopefully a new viable option comes next year for Microsoft."

Eh...I never really understood why the show gets the hype it does and why mlb 2k gets the hate it does, other than graphics I'd say mlb 2k takes the cake in physics and commentary...and honestly those are 2 big areas..because as it is baseball games arnt all that entertaining..so good commentary goes a long way and even though the physics in mlb 2k can get wonky at times overall it feels more natural/ less stiff than the show and makes for a funner experience.
