I’ve been a fan of baseball videogames going all the way back to the Atari 2600 in 1977 when I played “Home Run” there. I’ve written about baseball videogames a few times over the years on this blog. I’ve been a fan of the MLB 2K baseball series for awhile now, going back to the original Xbox, and it’s previous nomenclature as “World Series Baseball”. While I enjoy the series, some of the minor nitpicks bother me. Like the screen grab I just took from the new trailer released today. They have the old Rangers Ballpark scoreboard in it. The thing has been live for all of last season – and they can’t update that? Sigh.
Still, the game looks good, and it’s not about a ballpark’s scoreboard as how a game rates, but I wish they’d pay a little closer attention to stuff like that.
