The MLB 2K9 Developers Are Listening

I know there's a wishlist thread, so mods if you think this doesn't belong then fair enough. However, the MLB 2K9 team does want to know where the series has gone wrong, how they can fix those errors, what the series does right, what you guys love about baseball video games, what you want to see in a baseball video game, and just why you love to play baseball video games.

Forwarding those ideas won't be a problem, so be specific and be honest. Your chance to get your voice heard is here.

2K7 was awesome, graphically. 2K8 took a step backward.


Quit trying to make some new innovative idea with the controls every year, like the pitching this year. Instead, go back to basics with the control and have them work really well.


MVP Baseball 2005 was the best baseball game ever created. Look at that for a reference.

Make the franchise mode like MVP 05. Make it so that we not only can play the games, but rather when we sim the statistics are kept.

Focus on franchise mode as much as possible, and take away the "win probablity" stat that was annoying.

Re: The MLB 2K9 Developers Are Listening

the lag online was a joke, you couldn't play it all and that was a big gamebreaker for me.

As for the actual game, fix the ball physics. No way Adam Kennedy is hitting a Bronson Arroyo slider down and away for a 450 ft home run. I'm sorry, but there's only a handful of players strong enough to do that in real life and it doesn't happen that often. When Jason Bay takes two away and in the dirt and puts them in the Ohio River, something is wrong.

Re: The MLB 2K9 Developers Are Listening

-Smarter more mature AI

-Longer games and cutscenes

-Scrap the New controls every year just keep it fun and simple

-2K7 graphics were better than 2k8 but I'd like to see better texture graphics.

-Better Stadiums with better lighting and interactive scoreboards and more fans have them be closer together instead of far apart

-New Player Rating system

-MLB on fox style presentation

-New stat overlays with commentary to match

-Crisper and determined animation, no unsure or questioning looking animations

-Realistic risk/reward option outside pitch to a righty should rarely be hit well, unless its a marquee player, and IN THESE TERMS it still should not happen all that much.
- Intend 2K9 for the Hardcore, simulation gamers and dont follow madden with the casual gamer. MLB: 08 THE Show did this and had great sucess

- Make the fans interact with the game like NBA 2k and their series

- Feel the difference between a June interleague game and a October rivalry

- Bring back the ability to argue with the manager or a player by a simple movement on the d-pad or a button press EXAMPLE : down = assertive conversation and Left = stern arguement

- HIT VARIETY, HIT VARIETY, HIT VARIETY need this back and bad

-Stolen Bases and attemps frequently from the theifs of the league

- Realistic Franchise, and stories, all its been is unrealistic rants and fights by top most respectful players in the league, and they will have perfect morales but rant 3 days straight
