Baseball gaming season is here! Stuck
Posted on February 9, 2009 at 09:57 PM.
For my very first blog entry here at Operation Sports, I felt it necessary to mull over my feelings about the upcoming slate of baseball video games. Spring Training is nearly here and the release dates of MLB 2K9 and MLB 09: The Show are less than a month away.

Unfortunately, as an Xbox 360 owner, I am forced to play 2K's offering or buy a PS3 just to play The Show. While some argue that it is worth it to pick up Sony's console strictly for some hardball action, I am one of those folks who are optimistic that MLB 2K9 will beat expectations this year.

I am specifically looking forward to the Living Rosters feature and the improved ballpark atmosphere that 2K has promised. It's likely that I spend more time adjusting rosters and completing trades in baseball games than I do actually playing the game.

However, the lack of gameplay videos and slow release of vital information (player ratings don't cut it for me, folks) has me fearing for a repeat performance of 2K8, a game that had potential, but was held back by a sluggish frame rate and odd hiccups.

No matter what, come March 3rd, I will be planted in front of my TV, taking charge of my Cubbies in hopes of breaking the 100+ year championship drought.

Whether you play MLB 2K9 or The Show, enjoy the upcoming baseball gaming season.
