If we end up with current and editable MLB rosters with Wii Baseball
gameplay (same or improved), I will likely pick this up. I find baseball
games on the 360/PS2 rather boring right now or perhaps more so
overdone. The Wii controller with the swing mechanics in Wii Baseball
are rather addictive.

Definitely picking this one up for PS2.

Looks like a great blend of fun and realism.

This looks like it will be a blast on the Wii.

I wish something like this would come out for PC. =(

Hopefully it's online for one or both of the consoles (preferably Wii).

I think I could live with online roster updates only on the Wii, even. This would get a TON of playtime from guests if it was executed correctly.

Saw on IGN that this now has a release date of December 4. Bummer - I thought it may drop earlier than that!

There's also a Power Pro thread going on in the Baseball (Other) forum here

Didn't the original release say "fall" ? I guess it isn't technically winter until Dec. 21st.

Dumb question -- will this game look better on Wii or PS2? That will determine my choice, even if I don't have PS2 yet (will be getting one for FirePro). However, online capabilities may sway my choice.
