ESPN: A First look at MLB 09 The Show

Now heres a warming thought on this arctic December day. (Imagine if the Winter Classic was today)

ESPN presented a first look of MLB 09 The Show. The Release date for the game isnt until March 3rd but If you are lucky enough to own a Playstation 3 youll be in for a real treat with this game, whose franchise is often called the best Baseball simulation out there.

 

ESPN- MLB 09 The Show: First Look

 

I will have you read the review but I thought you'd all get a kick out of these two highlights that I personally thought where just down right awesome:

Franchise 2.0
Sony has added a lot of little details that the hard-core MLB fans have been shouting for, including salary arbitration, waiver transactions, September call-ups, and the 40-man roster. Player personality will also come into play as gamers try to juggle the needs of the franchise versus the needs of their star players.
Trash Talk 2.0 MLB 09 is about to bring out the crazed fan in all of us as not only can you record your voice screaming anything from "Where's Madonna?" to "we want a pitcher not a belly itcher" and put it in the game thanks to peripherals like the Rock Band mic and wireless headset, the fan yells will sound like your voice actually coming from the stands. You can even assign the recordings to be part of a chant and your voice will be put through a new process so that it sounds more like a crowd chanting "over-rated" and not just a single person yelling.

This sounds like one helluva game when it comes out on March 3rd.
