Even more reason for me to hold off on the PSP. Overpricing of games.

In my opinion this is the only EA Sports game that is thoroughly better than the Sega Sports competition. I think its great that the price has been lowered assuming the game is as good as last year.

And this is why everyone has opinions. I truly liked ESPN last year

But yes, I'm glad to see both are priced reasonably

this might be rare some day, since it's EA's last MLB player licensed game for a while :P

Yeah, it is unfortunate that this is the last year. I just hope Take Two takes their game to a new level next year.

yes if you keep it sealed for 10 years it will be worth 1 million dollars.

I will probably pick up both, I love MVP 2004, but I have never played a sega baseball game. So both for 50 sounds like a good deal to me!

I bought MVP last year, but left handers not being able to hit homeruns like normal kinda pissed me off. I'm leaning more towards Major League Baseball 2K5 right now.

Well I bet you'll be happy to hear that they fixed that problem this year. It was one of the biggest complaints and EA addresed it. :D

I'm probably going to pick up MVP this year. What would be the best thing I can do with my 2004 copy? Are there any trade-in deals (such as, trade in the 2004 game and get the game a few dollars cheaper, etc.) or such?

I bought MVP last year and then rented ESPN, and I thought that ESPN was terrible. It was surprising to me, because I liked the games before it.

Well, we'll see what happens. :)
Goodbye, CAG... take care now...

Um...Never trade in an old sports game, unless you do it fast. You'll get a really, really low price for it. Like $3...

Your best bet would be to sell it at a garage sale or something and try and get like $10-$15 for it.

...or go to Gamerush. Gamestop offered me $8, yes, $8, for Madden and NCAA 2004 last July. I went to Gamerush the next day and got $30 total for both.

I'm definitely getting MVP, it was the better game last year and it's the better game this year. ESPN seems to have been copying MVP's innovations as their own. ESPN will have picture-in-picture baserunning, like MVP had last year. Just what I've seen from the previews of both. The 125 year dynasty will keep me plenty busy during the next 7 years of Take-Two's MLB reign. I've heard that EA may make a college baseball instead of MLB, which could be cool though I hardly ever watch the sport.

If you trade in any EA sports 2005 title @ GameStop, you can get MVP for 9.99....I was also thinking about trading in ESPN college hoops, and NBA at game rush and getting 16 bucks for both and then pay 3.99 for ESPN baseball. Not bad, 2 brand new baseball games for 15 bucks.

MVP just got sweeter.

EA bumped up the release date to next week instead of the first week of March! Check the page again and you can see that EB/Gamestop changed the date.

NOOOOO!!!! GT4 and this in one week? How can the gaming gods do this to me? Good thing I got $20 from my Grandma for my birthday today, that'll go with the guaranteed $60 of credit at EB from their trade 2 get an extra $10 deal.

Awesome week for me.

About the $15 coupon..i registered a long time ago and have never gotten any coupon from them. Anyone know why that might be?

Edit: Ok, somehow my options got changed to not wanting info from EA. That should take care of my problem. Also, I noticed that there is a code for free shipping on MVP. Not sure if it is stackable with the $15 off coupon though.
