50 mins? cool

Posted by Venatio

Dude, 50 minutes of a sportsgame being played on Giantbomb.com? Never thought I would live to see the day

Posted by SonicFire

Woah... hilarious quick looks, but now I remember why I can't stand modern sim sports games.  
As far as I'm concerned, baseball games reached their peak with Ken Griffey Jr. Presents Major League Baseball for the SNES.

The Show looks really good.

SPORTS! This seems odd...

Posted by grotto

There is absolutely no reason to buy 2k10 if you have a PS3. The Show is probably the best baseball game ever made.

This is truly a historic event.

Blue spot for batters are cold spots (not the best hitting spots), red spots are hot (good hitting spots). When pitching you want to stay away from their red and throw at the blue.

For me the pinnacle of baseball games was Ken Griffy Jr baseball for the N64

Ryan and Jeff hate Jeter? Wow, I didn't believe in love until this moment.

Posted by Hunkulese

Is this the first sports game (er games) ever covered here?

Posted by morningdrive

i think Jeff enjoyed the show a lot more. Now he just needs to read the things that pop up that show him how to play and I'm sure he will be spending some time with that game.

Social Distortion in a baseball game? Weird music fit...

Squirt is the correct choice.

Good stuff, looks like The Show wins yet again.

Go Giants. Also, it's good to see Steve Phillips getting work.

50 min of seizure inducing non-stop visceral frantic bassball action.

Did anyone else read  Eva Longoria is featured as this year's cover athlete.

Package from Pepsi and Coca-Cola confirmed.

Awesome QL.
The most awesome part was when Derek Jeter struck out.
As for the games: I like baseball. But I don't really see the point of playing a baseball game unless you have someone to play against (who is right there and not a faceless online person), which I don't. So I won't buy either of these.

Nah, rounders was about poker.

What's that song playing when they were in The Show's menu?

These games have gotten too complicated. RBI Baseball was about right.

wtf 50 minutes........ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

I hope this leads into more QL's of sports games.

Just to remind you, Jeff, who is not Kenny Powers fabulous:
The best part of being Kenny Powers is being Kenny Powers.

Posted by handlas

welp there is a demo up for both games already and anyone with half a brain can see which is the better baseball game.  Which may not being saying much because how many people actually play baseball games?  Regardless I enjoyed the Show demo and may pick it up sometime.

Posted by ConduitFourSale

I really enjoyed watching Jeff and Ryan play both these games.  Having played both demos I can safely say that The Show is fantastic, but I think 2K Sports made some great strides this year.  The pitching is downright awesome and I feel like its easy to read the pitch as a hitter and actually make contact (maybe i Just suck at the Show).  The Show's presentation just blows me away...its almost photo realistic.

Jeff, in 2K9, they had it so you just had to do the gesture for pitching, but the game often (I'd say 75% of the time) read your gesture as another pitch. It was downright broken.

Posted by CyleMoore

Go Mariners!

Posted by pbhawks45

I want to get the GB guys into sports so badly. I'm almost shocked that Jeff is into baseball, because most people who don't like sports often point to baseball as "the most boring sport EVAR." 
So, for people that don't like sports, what gives?

Edited by HypotheticalSolution76

This helped me out a lot. I love Gary Thorne doing the play-by-play in 2K10 better than the Matt guy in The Show, but unfortunately I don't like some of the things, from the video, present in 2K10. The pitching system in either look good, but the batting looked better in The Show. Presentation seemed smoother in The Show, and the menu system, to me, is way better in The Show, or at least I prefer using it more than the tic-tac-toe board from 2K10.
I agree with Jeff about the stop animation on players after a pitch in favor of instant reset to batting position. If the pitcher has a slow progression between pitches, then the batter can too. But it's not something I couldn't get used to.

Posted by Cetra

hahahaha i lost it when Jeff said he wasn't gonna swing at the next pitch cause the computer kept throwing them outside, and the next one was dead center.

Posted by Archer88

2k10 looked way better in my opinion

Posted by pbhawks45
@Archer88: Nope. Trust me.
Posted by JoeBlank

The default batting cam in 2k10 is TERRIBLE
