Major League Baseball 2K7

Shares

Which brings us to the batting system itself. Both the PS3 and Xbox 360 see the return of the standard button system and the Swing Stick; using the analog stick to pull back and take your shot. But lacking the rumble feature (important to 2-player pitching) and sporting a smaller online league than 360, the PS3 is already at a disadvantage. Further issues arise from the fact that batting is defaulted to the Sixaxis motion sensor option. You'll perform a swing by awkwardly pushing the controller forward from your chest with both hands, kind of like an aerobic Hadouken.



The result is a varying degree of hit success, but the experience seems a little too clumsy to ever become the preferred batting method. It's beyond evident that the developers were trying to take a page from the Wii playbook, since it is possible to hold the Wii remote in one hand and swing it like an actual bat. But to do so with a Sixaxis would require a kung-fu death grip or an extreme disregard for one's television.

Minor PS3 gripes aside, Major League Baseball 2K7 is shaping up to do the sport justice, and we'll have a review for you when the game drops early this March.
