Major League Baseball 2K9 Diary Part 1 (ESPN hands-on preview)

ESPN's Jon Robinson previews Visual Concept's baseball title Major League Baseball 2K9 and comes away impressed in part 1 of his diary series playing hands-on:

Excerpt: "First thing I notice when I enter franchise mode is how clean it looks. MLB 2K9 is being developed by Visual Concepts this year and they brought over the guy who built NBA 2K9's Association mode to make things right for baseball. And if you've played NBA at all, you'll feel right at home as MLB 2K9's Franchise was built from the ground up, adding and improving on things gamers have already praised from the NBA title. The game now features stats-based player progression where younger players no longer improve by just sitting on the bench. You actually need to work them into the lineup if you want to see them get better over time.

Other improvements of note: The trade logic is brand new as is the game simulator, and you can even play Franchise with 30 user controlled teams if you're such a freak that you need to tinker with every aspect of your league." (Major League Baseball 2K9, PC, PS2, PS3, PSP, Wii, Xbox 360)
