Press Row Hangout Clip: The Focus On Speeding Up Baseball Games

Posted March 20th, 2014 at 12:00 pm


Given the development time that has gone in to attempting solutions to the issue that is the length of time it takes to play a single baseball game – and marketing which is focusing on it as a major selling point – a segment from the latest Press Row Hangout tackled the topic. The poll posted last week established that consumers do see it as a serious issue that hampers the experience and limits the sport’s reach in video games so it’s something that is going to continue to be experimented with. Whether the options being presented in MLB 14: The Show are the answer to what ails baseball titles remains far less certain.

    Basically the same game 5 weeks apart. No way Im buying them both even though I think the games are great every year.

    This is ridiculous, what is everyones mental hangup about the ‘OPTION” to play a faster game? it’s an OPTION, personally I welcome it. Not all of us have the luxury of sitting and playing a 3 hour baseball game so we’d like to play anyway we can. If there’s a day that I’m not doing much, sure i’d like to switch the ‘OPTION’ to full sim and play it out. It’s not a big deal people get over it.

    Watching Baseball on TV is great. Any time I have trouble sleeping, I just find a Baseball game to watch and I’m out like a light in 5 minutes flat.

    I think quick counts and player lock are great options. In fact, I think both are well overdo.
