Here's Your MLB 2K10 Feature List

2K Sports has released the feature list for its upcoming baseball game.

[UPDATE: Check out our first hands-on preview of MLB 2K10 here.]

Yesterday, I posted that 2K Sports was preparing to unveil Major League Baseball 2K10 later in the week. Today, the company has released the first hard details on the game via a post in the 2K Sports forums. The features listed:

- Work the Corners – Based on each pitcher’s mechanics and official scouting reports, Total Control Pitching lets you put the ball exactly where you want it--provided you keep a close eye on your pitch count.
- Work the Count – With Total Control Hitting, you can time your swing to hit for power, put the ball in play or take a defensive cut. Batter’s Eye uses a hitter’s real-life eye rating to help you identify Fastballs, Breaking Balls and Off Speed pitches before they get to the plate.
- The Best Play Like the Best – True-to-Life Player Rating System, Signature Styles, and a new Motion Model ensure every pitch, swing, catch, throw, steal, and slide looks and feels like you’re at the ballpark.
- Become a Living Legend – With My Player Mode, you can create a player, choose your team and then play your way into the Hall of Fame.
- Authentic Presentation – MLB Today delivers real-time scores, standings, news, and stats to ensure timely commentary that reflects what’s actually going on in the Majors.
- Knowledge Is Power – Use Inside Edge to scout players, assess strengths, weaknesses and tendencies, and then exploit them to get the upper hand.

The big news on the list looks to be the introduction of My Player mode, following the debut of the feature in last year's NBA 2K10. With the announcement of this feature, one has to wonder if 2K is also preparing a downloadable training to precede the full game's release, similar to what the company did with NBA 2K10: Draft Combine, which was released before NBA 2K10. With spring training such a big part of the baseball season, it seems like a natural fit.

Look for GameSpot's first impressions of MLB 2K10 this Friday.

First off I never saw the words new on anything! It said features which untill you play the game can't say these features aren't in the game! Second off I agree that 2k doesn't match the show and the show most likely will allways be better than 2k! But I still enjoy playing both games! It's like nba live and nba 2k they both have things the other game doesn't! So untill you play the game quit riping it!

How much longer are these feature going to pass as "new"? This is ridiculous! The only thing that's new this year is the My Player Mode. Which still probably isn't as good as MLB: The Show. Bring back MVP!

Don't see any online play for 2k10 on the Wii. Therefore, no real reason to move past 2k8 (unless a PS3 magically appears in my budget, in which case, the Show is the first game I pick up).

From what I've seen so far MLB 2K10 can't even hold a candle to MLB 08 the show, let alone the up and coming MLB 10 the show. 2Kgames needs to totally overhaul their baseball franchise. Seriously. When it was World series baseball it was much better both in game play and even in graphics. But then... They decide to remake it over again, 2k6, 2k7, 2k8, and 2k9, every year it just got worse. The Sony's MLB series has been around for about 14years. (and every year it has gotten better and better) 2Kgames needs to wake up because MLB is taking over!

2K promises every year to have a reinvented baseball sim. And every year it disappoints big time. Why can't they come up an updated or HD version of MVP Baseball? Hands down the best baseball sim. I know the exclusivity. That has ruined all major sport sims. Not excited at all.

Wow... we've seen this sales pitch for years now in MLB 2K with the' Inside Edge and T'otal control' stuff. This game needed a serious overhaul in all areas starting with playing defense! They need a better camera that pans out. 2K Baseball looks like it's played on a Little League diamond the dimensions are so crunched. Hopefully they improved this game in a big way for the non PS3 owners. As for them... they have no worries with king of baseball sims "The Show" coming out in 2 months.

Servers are probably going to suck like usual and I hope they get all the BIG bug out of THIS game.

The whole point of a franchise mode in sports games is to manage the transition between older players and younger prospects.

i'm not gonna lie, compared to the show's fact sheet, this looks like trash. To make matters worse, 2K9 was trash. Looks like another garbage game from 2K don't waste your money.
