Hopefully they can make it even better in roster updates.
I feel like now that the IE appears to be working right this can be dealt with using rating changes. I could be wrong.

I personally would LOVE to see them revive that Franchise with a lot of the same people that worked on the last one (if possible) (2004). That was a great baseball game (except for the horrible graphics). Microsoft could combat PS3 sales because of the Show (although it's probably not a ton of sales overall) by making their own great baseball game since 2K hasn't been stepping up to the plate since 360/P3.
Having said all that, I do think this game has a lot of promise for the future. This is the first one that VC has worked on, and the first ones are usually a disaster. They really could refine this game, and make it really good for next year.
Even though I have a PS3 and MLB 09 The Show, I hope they make this series good, because it's kind of like Coke and Pepsi. Even though you really may like Coke (MLB 09 The Show), sometimes you're not in the mood for it, and want Pepsi (MLB 2K9) for a change (or Pepsi may be The Show for some of you and MLB 2K9 is Coke, whatever).

So I take it that it still isn't worth buying post-patch? (Trying to catch up here, haven't been on the MLB 2K9 forum in a while)

Here's my first highlight.

Well I'm a HUGE The Show fan but 2K9 IS a fun game to play. Having some really good times with is since the patch.

Same here. For my money the Show is the best sports game I have ever played. That being said, I am having a ton of fun playing 2k9.

I was in Target today on my way home, and was really close to picking this up (especially since I had a $20 gift card). The only thing that held me back was the price and concern that I might not play it at all since I have The Show 09. I used to play both in the past. I wonder if there will be a price drop, like NBA 2K9. It's only $39.99 now at Target. I should have picked that up at least. Now I'm regretting not buying one of them, lol. Went to blockbusters and they had 5 copies, and they were all rented. Now I know why I don't go there anymore. Never can find what I want.

Anyway, I think I will have to pick this up and check it out myself. If I don't like it, I can just sell it or trade it in I guess. Thanks for the impressions.
