The trade list is long, but distinguished.

What's with all the sports games lately? Very disappointing.

Disappointing to you perhaps, but not to myself and everyone else that cares about sports games. And considering it's opening day today for 90% of the teams, I'd say this deal was not random. Nor was the NCAA March Madness deal yesterday for the Elite Eight.

This is a good deal though for anyone interested!

I'd be in like Flynn if this were also for 360. I'm sure MLB 2k8 on PS3 is getting beat down sales wise by MLB 08 The Show like the Tampa Bay Rays getting beat down by the Red Sox in a 3 game series.

Especially when you consider it's less than a month after the game was released.

This is really tempting, but from the demo the pitching seemed really annoying and just gimmicky. I guess I'll just cross my fingers and hope that The Show gets DotD'd within a month or so...

Just looked, and MLB 2K8 has a 67 from metacritic. Ouch.

MLB 08 is the superior game by leaps and bounds. However, if you've played both demos (available on PSN), and you still want 2k8, this is a good deal.

A few years ago, 2K8 would've meant last year's version, which made the least sense for a baseball game. I think Tony LaRussa Baseball was the first game to be off by a year to make people think it was the latest game.

Whatever you do, do not buy this game. It's so, so awful.

This game can be a lot of fun. Unfortunately, it takes a lot of slider tweaking to get anything near a somewhat realistic game. Plus, the fun you do have is often diminished by the bugs and slowdowns. One step forward, two steps back.

I don't know what the bugs are, but I read on IGN that there will be a patch for the 360 to eliminate some things including framerate issues. I can only imagine that they would do the same for PS3 and it may have been in that article and I just don't remember. Patch may already be ready for DL as they said it would be available very soon.

Even for $20 less, I still wouldn't want this over The Show. It's too bad they didn't have the 360 version as well, but it makes sense.

Just remembered another reason to get the Show over 2K8. The Show has been getting weekly roster updates while 2K8 has had only one so far. I guess one a week is overkill but at least the developers care...

My main problem with the demo was that I'd get a great hit to the outfield wall, which by realistic standards is a double 90% of the time. However, my success rate was closer to 30% and maybe lower. It would mostly be a bang-bang play if I decided to go for it. To me, that's not real baseball. I say pass on this game for the PS3 owners here and wait for The Show, much better game...

If you cared about sports games and have been playing them for a long time you'd be disappointed as hell with what is being put out there today. This game is complete garbage. I can understand kids just getting into videos games and sports games in general thinking 2K8 is alright but that is about it.

Baseball games and anything outside of Madden and Live on PC have been disappointing for years and even those have had their terrible years. Play NHL 06, 07 and 08 along with the FIFA games and you will find a steady progression of them getting worse over the years. I will agree that The Show is better than 2K8 but that isn't saying much.

Its a shame that they don't have this for the 360 also.

I already have it for the 360 its decent but very buggy. People might want to wait it out for the patch. Also the roster updates aren't what they should be Johan Santana is still a Twin....good for me since I am a Twins fan but not good for that aspect.

Tempting, but since the past few 2K baseball games have sucked, I'll pass.

Yes, 2K8 is garbage, but The Show is a fantastic game, NBA and College Hoops 2K8 are great, I think FIFA 08 is great (and Euro 2008 looks even better), and Madden... well, it's better than the Arena League games.
