One the main community managers for MLB 11 was at the ‘It Won’t Stay In Vegas’ party demoing a homerun derby mode in MLB 11 specifically with the PlayStation Move.
I can see how the Move can make the batting experience better in MLB 11, but how about the pitching? Holding a Move won't feel like a ball plus pretend throwing the thing at full force at your expensive TV doesn't sound like a good idea (even with a strap, it could easily slip away). Also, pitching and batting a complete game could be very tiring that way. Maybe, they will be keeping the traditional pitching interface and just use motion with the batting.
You can only use the Move in Home Run Derby mode. So it's only for hitting and in that mode. I was hoping for more Move integration myself. In HRD mode you can't miss the ball unless you timing is way off. You're basically only trying to time the swing. Location and maybe even power doesn't make a difference. That's what I'm thinking since it's in HRD only and comparing to last years HRD mode. It would be VERY hard to get the location, timing and power right in your swing though. I guess they figured it would be too frustrating.
I will definitely get this with Move.
This looks really good, I might pick this up.
This and the tennis game will show people why it's better to have a controller in your hand
I'm sticking with dualshock 3!! but it looks cool if you into the motion stuff!!
another definitive exclusive.
can't wait for a cricket game that supports move :)
That will be so awesome. I hope they do it right.
wait, so you cant play a regular game with the move? uhhhh only hrd?
