This game has affirmed my decision to pick-up the PS2 console...
(I actually owned the regular XBox..and when it went down with an internal error, I was forced to make a decision to...A.) pick up the Xbox 360...
B.) pick up a PSP and wait out the PS3....or C.) get the PS2 and wait out the PS3 - when I say wait out.....I mean wait for better availability, and the pricing to stabilize...and for me to come up with $$ for a PS3...

Well thanks in large part to this game and the availability of ESPN 2k5 NFL on the PS2,...I think I made the right choice and (much to the chagrin of my Nintendo Wii and Xbox 360 loving friend)..What I think this game shows...is that someone involved or who has actually played a high level of real baseball was involved in putting this thing together....I actually admired this game from store demos...and since i am generally a 1 console gamer....
I had the Xbox...and had to be satisfied with ESPN version of Baseball..
which was ok, but not as polished or as genuine as this game..
One thing I am hoping for is that the future versions of this game carry over to the PS3 with the same integrity and great game play of this PS2 game.
I think it will and in hindsight....I think I would have still picked up the XBox...although I was miffed at the error and Microsoft's decision to leave it's regular Xboxer's in the dust...plus the fact that I had broke 2 Xbox Controllers...made me glad that I have moved back to the Sony arena..
so...believe me I have tried most of the cross platform baseball games out there with the intent of looking for GREAT game play along with GREAT graphics...(some games the players heads were to BIG..or the motion of the players on the field sucked...or the Game play was just....off...)
this game is it..!!! There is no reason to waste time looking at other games...this one is it !!!! Believe me !!!
