How is the franchise mode on the show?

MLB 2k8 looks to have a better franchise mode, but crappy other options.

It has a franchise mode which is really good and you can play in 'manager' mode if you don't want to deal with concessions and stuff like that.

 But the 'Road to the Show' mode is what really shines. You can play as one player through whole seasons. You can even start as a minor leaguer if you want to. You get really attached to the players. And it's very cleverly done so you can play through seasons quickly ( you only see the plays that your player is involved in)

Yeah I've heard the game is great but I don't have a PS3. Wondering if there are enough games on the system to buy it.

bodom, i'll tell you what bigcat told me...get the ps3!!!  it is amazing and well worth the money.  there are tons of awesome games.

rockband, call of duty 4, and mlb 08 alone wil give you hours and hours of fun.

i picked up the show today, but i worked late and the kids are watching a movie w/ms ducky.  i can't wait for bedtime...lol.

The XBOX and the PS3 both have really good exclusive games but the PS3 definitely has the edge in sports games now.

Think about how annoying it would be to have a high end system that didn't have the best sports games.

Ducky, did you get a chance to play it yet?

yup i got a few games in and it is awesome!!!  the stadiums are dead on and the players look great.  the cards roster needs a little work, but that's to be expected.

tonight is movie night w/ms ducky, i think we're watching 300 and 3:10 to yuma (hey it was my night to pick...lol), but i should strat my spring training tomorrow night.

There is going to be a really good roster update coming out the day after the season starts.

Re: Baseball video games coming out in 08? 


the opening day roster is going otbe amazing.  if colby makes the team i will probably start my season over.  otherwise, i'll just keep using my created baby birds.

so far i'm 5-1.  i have carp and mulder in AAA, as if they were injured.  ankiel is a beast in the game, and dunc and ryan rock as well.  just like real life, kennedy sucks and i've already benched him for izturis. 

the graphics and gameplay are sooooo amazing!!!

I'm definitely starting over when the roster comes out. Just so all the teams are as real as possible. HAve you tried RTTS mode? I'm loving that.
