    It's not often that a soundtrack makes the official features list for a sports game - especially when that list goes only five items deep. That was the case with MLB 2K12 however and today 2K Sports unveiled the full track listing for the game which is now just over two weeks from release. In addition the entire soundtrack will be available to stream on the Spin website beginning on Tuesday February 21st.

  • Gameplay Improvements to Pitching and Hitting in MLB 2K12
    Posted February 16th, 2012 at 9:15 am 20 Comments »
    It's been clear for a while that MLB 2K12 wasn't going to bring a whole lot new to the table. While 2K Sports attempts to market it with the $1 million competitions and by flaunting out Kate Upton they've done little to provide any credibility around this year's product especially following the release of poor initial screenshots and an embarrassingly thin features list. Now though the first official blog has gone out which goes into detail on gameplay enhancements with the focus on the ...

  • MLB 2K12 Expands Perfect Game Contest to Feature Eight Person Tournament
    Posted January 12th, 2012 at 8:30 am 19 Comments »
    The first two years of the $1 million Perfect Game Challenge have for all intents and purposes ended on the first day but that is much less likely to occur with MLB 2K12. Now it will be the "top ranked" (whatever that means - but it isn't the "first") eight to accomplish the feat from April 4th through the end of that month will be slotted into a live tournament taking place in New York for the ultimate prize. That should also help to eliminate the embarrassment of having someone who doesn't...
  • Justin Verlander Gets Cover of MLB 2K12
    Posted November 3rd, 2011 at 5:15 pm 10 Comments »
    Considering Justin Verlander had a previous marketing relationship with 2K Sports, and is coming off a spectacular year that had some proclaiming him worthy of the MVP award and a shoo-in for Cy Young, it should be no surprise that the company today named him as the cover athlete for Major League Baseball 2K12. The news was broken earlier on Twitter and the official announcement was made at the MLB Players Choice Awards. Verlander led the Detroit Tigers to the AL Central championship with...
