Product Overview

In baseball, no part of the game gets more attention than batting. The science of getting the perfect swing on a 90 mph fastball is perhaps the hardest thing to do in any sport, which makes the athletes in Major League Baseball some of the best athletes in the world. There's nothing like watching a big league batter timing his step, turn on the spot, and launch the ball high and fast into the outfield. And no baseball video game captures the essence of the batting experience than Major League Baseball 2K6's Swing Stick mechanic.

Over the years, broadcasters have played a key role in how sports fans experience baseball. More so than any sport, baseball has been blessed with great broadcasters and colorful commentating personalities that describe the game with great wit and insight. Major League Baseball 2K6 enhances gamers' baseball experiences by using broadcast-quality presentation style and featuring the best commentary team in major league baseball.

New action replays of strikeout pitches include detail of the speed of the pitch as well as how much movement for breaking balls. In addition, new Flashback Highlights show off replay highlights of important events that took place in an inning including big homeruns, close plays at the plate, or fantastic diving catches.

Calling the balls and strikes on the field, the great play-by-play announcing of Jon Miller alongside Half of Fame legend Joe Morgan, will offer their familiar candor and great insight as all the action unfolds. New to the commentary team are Jeanne Zelasko and Steve Physioc, as they lend their voices to introduce every game with great excitement and enthusiasm.

Inside Edge, the leading baseball scouting service, can now be found in Major League Baseball 2K6. Inside Edge powers the behaviors and the artificial intelligence of every virtual athlete by utilizing the comprehensive data and advanced decision-making to determine the type of pitch delivered and batting tendencies in any situation.

In combination with Inside Edge, Major League Baseball 2K6 also features the innovative V.I.P. system, featured in the critically acclaimed NBA 2K6. Gamers can save their friends' profiles to compete when they're not available and learn their tendencies, moves, & logic for more heated battles.

One of the most exciting parts of televised baseball are the highlight reels that come after a big play. The moon shot over the bleachers, the diving catch, the relay from the cutoff man and even simply catching a fly ball all require athletic baseball skill and at the big league level, MLB athletes make all these plays look easy and graceful. The Pure Motion Physics in Major League Baseball 2K6 drives all the new animations in the game; not only will gamers see much more variety in running, throwing, fielding, and tagging animations, but new player-to-player collision in the outfield and infield, adding astounding detail to virtual diamond.

Major League Baseball 2K6 brings you the definitive baseball simulation. With a truly immersive pitcher-batter showdown featuring the most accurate pitching and batting A.I. ever created, Major League Baseball 2K6 delivers the true Big League experience like never before.
