Everyone has pretty much said it all. There isn't much more I could add except one thing:
I would very much like there to be many more 2Handed Stance options. I love how it looks hitting a homerun with a 2handed swing, but none of the stances are very cool, or how I stand at all.
Also I would like the RTTS mode to be more personal. Like, make him an aggressive, egotistical ass. Or make him a noble, modest nice guy. and everything in between with various combinations. This could be showcased on their walk-ups, homeruns, interviews (if there are any interviews in the new game), etc...
I would just like to say for added effect that i would LOVE there to be tattoo options. a lot of tattoo options!!!
All of these new ideas are great but there should be one thing that should be in the game that isnt being discussed... UPDATING ROSTERS WHILE IN FRANCHISE MODE!!!! Come on how annoying is it when when you have a franchise and there is a major trade or retirement?
I just wonder what kind of features will hit the playstation vita system since it does come out around the same this is going to realase.I'm a big fan of the show and getting Vits in Feb or aroudn tax return time. Since I travel around the US National parks .MLB the show will be a great addtion to my vita .. Can't wait for it next year.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE give us the option to use MOVE controls during a regular game,and RTTS.. at least batting and pitching. If you do include the feature to play a full game with the move controller let it be in all offline game modes, not like in MLB 11 with the CO OP play where i was looking forward to playing thru franchise with a friend after learning about this feature.... but NO for some incredibly stupid reason you can only play co op in an exhibition game...POINTLESS and a tease....I BUY the show every year and have since it came out, i have 2 move controller and the ps eye ALL which i bought with the idea "how awesome itll be to play The Show with motion controls"
I'd like to see the developers add features like on Excel where you can easily sort by player attributes throughout the league. Finding the players you want to target in FA and trades can be difficult with the limited sorting capabilities. If you spend enough time on it, you can do a decent job, but it would be nice to cut the legwork out of going team by team through all the 75 to 100 players from each franchise and allowing you to sort to see who the fastest players are. Who the most powerful or best contact hitters are in the league, etc.
Also, it'd be cool if your level of scouting influenced whether displayed player traits were accurate or not. For example, power, contact, speed, clutch, etc. are all ratings that should be sortable by the entire league, not just by team. It should not necessarily show you what they really are either since one person to the next could evaluate a player differently in real life.
