ESPN: MLB 09 The Show: Exclusive first look

ESPN: "Ask anyone about MLB 08, and the first thing fans want to talk about are the visuals. From the cut scenes to the walk up animations to the way players acted so, (should I say it?), real. Scenes played out in MLB 08 like nothing I had ever seen before in a baseball game.

MLB 09 is about to up the ante.

Sony promises over 700 new gameplay animations, more than 150 new personalized pitcher and batter routines, and another 400 new presentation animations. But that's only just the start as the producers of the game have also added dusk to night lighting transitions, wear and tear to the field, Jumbotron animations, and a crowd that even features weather-appropriate clothing. Every team mascot will also be featured in the game performing their signature moves and dances. Hopefully that means a whole lot of Lou Seal pelvic thrusts when the Dodgers are up to bat against the Giants, but I guess we'll have to wait and see." (MLB 09: The Show, PS3)

The best MLB game ever returns!!!
Check out the trash talk feature: "trash talk 2.0"

"MLB 09 is about to bring out the crazed fan in all of us as not only can you record your voice screaming anything from "Where's Madonna?" to "we want a pitcher not a belly itcher" and put it in the game thanks to peripherals like the Rock Band mic and wireless headset, the fan yells will sound like your voice actually coming from the stands. You can even assign the recordings to be part of a chant and your voice will be put through a new process so that it sounds more like a crowd chanting "over-rated" and not just a single person yelling."......SO AWESOME!

Make sure to check out the article, long list of new and improved features guys.

Day 1 purchase. w000t!
