ESPN - 'MLB 11: The Show' First Look

ESPN: "When I got back to my hotel room following the event, I still couldn't get the game (or the awesomeness of Brian Wilson's polygonal beard) out of my mind. It's similar to how I felt the first time I saw "NBA 2K11," -- sometimes you just get that feeling that you're playing something special, and "MLB 11: The Show" is shaping up to be one of the biggest sports game of the new year." (MLB 11: The Show, PS2, PS3, PSP)

I think Sony should try and give their MLB title a world release. Even EA does so with its american-esque sports like American Football.

it may be an interesting exercise at least for one year.

Great article... my personal favorite bit -- "this might be the biggest jump in terms of both control and game-play enhancements the series has ever attempted in a single year."

I hate the Giants. They're so over-rated that was the biggest bunch of luck i've ever seen. Their pitchers will NEVER get that hot at once ever again. It was a farce like my 2007 Rockies, credit though, at least they finished it out.
MerkinMax  +   1629d ago
Yeah man, luck carried them the whole way /s
Uh oh, here comes the undeafeated Cliff Lee, now 7-2 thanks to the Giants. The Giants pitched well, but they were not flawless. Just look how Sanchez pitched.

BAY AREA 4 the win son...deal with it.

lol how hilarious and delusional Giants fans are. You actually think your team is annual world series contenders?? You have the best pitching staff in baseball and one of the most laughable lineups to ever win a world series. It was pure luck, case of EVERYONE getting hot at the right time. I already gave credit for doing what my 2007 Rockies did, but actually finishing out and winning the championship. Your lineup is made up of Buster Posey and the misfits, hasbeens and over the hills. Great great pitching and clutch hitting, It was an impressive ride and one for the books.

Apparently you 2 can't read either since I said "Their pitchers will NEVER get that hot AT ONCE again" keywords "AT ONCE" I never said Tim Lincecum even though 2010 was his worst pro season yet and he was forgettable for 3/4 of the season. But whatever if you actually think your team will repeat that feat again you'll be sad come October.

Well why you are sulking about the Giants winning, I'll keep this year in my mind because the Giants earned it.

WOW that is weird how suddenly 5 people came in here and agreed with you and disagreed with us at the same time.

Sulking? I'm not sulking. I do hate the Giants, do you like the Rockies? I doubt it. I just said it was luck that everyone on your team showed up all at once. Hell you were 7 1/2 games back til we knocked the Padres back to earth in a 4 game sweep. It took til the last game of the season to even make the playoffs...lol it's not like you were dominating all season long.

I never hate a team. I appreciate great competition. As a baseball player myself, I have never hated an opponent, what is the point? I see where you are coming from and as a Giants fan I can say that they had a magical season. Would I expect it to happen again, nope, or at least not for a while.

Although it looks nice, it looks like another year of the same game.... Hopefully 1080p is back in this one and not removed like it was in from MLB 10.

Eh, Iv'e bought one EA baseball game back in 2007? Maybe 08. Point is that it was horrible. I have no reason to buy anything except The Show.
bobrea  +   1629d ago
And I just realized this is a preview for the show. I read the title wrong. Oops. haha
nevin1  +   1629d ago
I have to agree with Graphics.

The game hasn't change since 07( it was the yr i bought it).I played the PS2 version of MLB 10 and its the same game as my PS3 version. player models is just better on PS3 thats it.

with that said, i still will buy The Show 11 but just like 09 and 10 i'll wait for a price drop.

lol just read part of the preview and the big change is analog controls? r u kidding me? it's horrible in MLB 2K so y attempt it here? so ppl r paying $60 for analog controls they won't like and therefore switch back to traditional controls. how does that make sense?

I see co op is added but they bitch out and limited it to 4 players. NBA u can have 5 on 5 while NHL is 10(or 12) players online. The Show 11 should be 9 on 9.

and to add insult to injury another Twins player will appear on the cover.

EA, Bring back MVP Baseball( even if it's college)
