    I am impressed...the minor league aspect blew me away last year and it looks like being the owner will only deepen that. I traded mine in to get NCAA last year so I cannot wait untill this one come out.

    I heard EA has hundreds of features ready to go but only allow so many of them in the game so they have something to sell the next version. Kind of rotten but its their biz.

    Sadly enough, MVP 2K5 will be the last in the series.
    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.

    I frequent plenty of forums. 2 big ones being this, and a video gaming forum. Big news. Old news, too. Take 2 acquired exclusive rights to the MLBPA, so if there is anymore MVPs, they won't have real players.

    News somewhere here.
    Here's the story.

    I didn't see that. But it's a taste of EA's own medicine. EA Sports effectively killed off the competition in football by doing the same thing with the NFL.

    I have to wonder what the product will be like, considering I don't know the titles of any of Take 2's console baseball games.

    It took EA years to get it right with Triple Play/MVP.

    I still have one last hope. I'm hoping EA will team up with either Nintendo, Microsoft, or Sony to make the game (C'mon, Microsoft!!). That is their loophole. T2 has 3rd party rights. EA could develop it, and one of the console makers would publish.
    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.

    Re: MVP Baseball 2005

    I remember reading a while back, that the Baseball and Basketball video game market is a tiny slice of the sports gaming market.

    Madden has the enormously large percentage up top, college football has about half of that, and then you get to the other two.

    So it may just be a business strategy to focus all their efforts on football, since that is the prime breadwinner.

    I think Take 2 is the company that brought us ESPN NFL 2k5, ESPN NBA, ESPN College Hoops, ESPN NHL....
