2K Sports Unveils Features of The Bigs

With The BIGS, we want to take the baseball genre to new heights and redefine what a baseball video game can be, said Greg Thomas, President of Visual Concepts, a 2K Sports studio. The BIGS has the fast learning curve of an arcade game coupled with deep play mechanics, amazing visuals, and hero-like presentation of real MLB players that will keep gamers coming back for more. The BIGS will showcase dramatic highlight reel moments at every at-bat, creating a truly epic baseball title.

Fans will redefine the baseball highlight reel by performing dramatic wall grabs, spectacular diving plays, and epic homeruns. Unique and intuitive gameplay controls deliver a new baseball experience, while advanced power-up mechanics add exciting depth with each turn. Turbo gameplay raises the action bar to new heights, and culminates in the ultimate batter pitcher power-up duel, where either the pitchers Big Heat will be the turning point, or the batters Power Blast will be the explosive end to the game. In The BIGS, every play is a big play.

In The BIGS, each MLB player has been individualized to emphasize their extraordinary athletic attributes. The development team paid great attention to detail to portray a players face and physical characteristics so baseball fans will easily recognize their favorite players. To deliver the authentic MLB atmosphere, stadium landmarks have been stylized to highlight the unique architecture of each MLB ballpark. Whether its the glove at San Franciscos AT&T Park resized to mammoth proportions or the left field wall in Bostons Fenway Park made into a real Green Monster, gamers will be in awe at the grandeur of each stadium in The BIGS.

The BIGS will be available this summer for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PLAYSTATION3 and PlayStation2 computer entertainment systems, PSP (PlayStationPortable) system and Nintendos Wii
