MLB 2K10 MLB Today Feature

  POSTED March 01, 2010 |   VIEWS 7249

Asif Chaudhri, Presentation Producer of Major League Baseball 2K10. We previously introduced a ground breaking new feature this year in Major League Baseball 2K10 : MLB Today. MLB Today provides the sounds of a living season, providing up-to-date commentary that discusses streaks and statistics that has been pulled directly from actual MLB events. Check out this video.

  MLB 2K10 MLB Today Feature

MLB Today incorporates actual MLB stats from the real games being played every day and uses it to drive the commentary and other presentation elements in the game. In the past you have booted your Major League Baseball 2K game and landed at a team select screen. When it came to commentary, overlays, and overall presentation, your game was happening as an absolutely independent event. It was a fantasy matchup that had no real-world context aside from the players, team uniforms and stadiums. There was a limited list of subjects the commentators could discuss. They could talk about what was happening in that particular game and they could talk about what happened last season.

 
That’s all changed. In Major League Baseball 2K10 you can go to the MLB Today landing screen and select an actual Major League Baseball game that is being played that day. You can sort the games by National League or American League and, if the team you want to play with doesn’t have a game that day, you can simply select the Quick Game option and create your own match-up as you always have.

The MLB Today screen has several sub-pages of stats from the real life Major League Baseball that you guys watch and love. It’s like having your favorite sports website integrated into your Internet-connected console playing your MLB 2K10 game. The main view shows you the starting pitcher for each team and two other key players for the game you have highlighted. Other sub-pages include a team leaders page, a team comparison page and a yesterday’s scores page. The team comparison page shows the current series results, which team their next series is against, and team performance info such as “BA of .308 over the last 6 games”. And if that’s not enough, from the MLB Today screen, you can access the MLB Today nav screen and access box scores, player stats, team stats and league standings. All this data will be real-world Major League Baseball data from the 2010 and previous seasons.
 
Awesome, right? But that’s just the start. Now that your game and your league are synched up, the door is thrown open for dynamic commentary and presentation that’s based on what’s happening in the real Major League Baseball. Throughout the season you’ll experience intelligent commentary that not only keeps you informed on the ACTUAL latest league happenings, but also keeps track of your team info as well. Examples include knowing your team just swept a three game series, knowing your third baseman went off for five hits and a couple bombs in the road win against the Dodgers Thursday night and that he’s hitting a cool .313 this season, knowing this is the first of a four game series between the two teams, and that your season series stands at an even 4-4. 

A big difference between NBA and Major League Baseball is the importance of splits data in Major League Baseball. That’s why we have TONS of splits data available. Examples include vs. lefties/righties, road/home, month, pre/post All-Star break, situational (bases empty, runners on, RISP, RISP with 2 outs, and more), by pitch count, vs. individual teams, by stadium, and vs. individual pitchers. So, the commentators will discuss the career and season splits for most pitchers and batters in the game. The commentators now have the knowledge of what’s happening league-wide and will reference the most up-to-date information possible in their conversations. But it’s not just talk (there will be a future Insight that dives deeper into the commentary, so look out for that soon): a lot of the topics the commentary team will discuss have overlays that coincide with their analysis. 
 
During the batter introductions you’ll see player stat lines from yesterday’s game and career and season splits vs. the current pitcher. You’ll also see the batter’s career batting average by pitch count as the plate appearance progresses, league leaders overlays in various stat categories and promos for upcoming games. As the Postseason approaches, you’ll get the standings for both the Senior and Junior circuits and Wild Card race updates. The commentary and presentation will constantly be changing throughout the season to coincide with the real league and transition from Spring Training to regular season and, finally, to the Postseason.

For the few days during the season where there are no Major League Baseball games taking place (or anytime you feel like playing your team), you can simply use Quick Game to create your own fantasy matchup and all the MLB Today commentary and presentation will still occur. And yes, the MLB Today commentary and presentation will also occur in your Franchise and My Player games (once you reach the Major League Baseball) but it will be your Franchise or My Player data that drives the commentary, not the real league data.
