Of course, Wii Sports had baseball, and it was kind of fun, but 2K has something completely different in mind with their Major League Baseball 2K8 for the Wii. The experience is about to get all kinds of immersive, and baseball fans are going to be spitting their sunflower seeds when they see what's in the hopper here.
What new functionality? Glad you asked, rook. Of course you can pitch and hit the way you'd think, but fielding also gets an upgrade, and there's a thing called "smart throw" technology that allows you to flick the Wiimote to the right base and the throw will get there. Also, you can chug along the basepaths by moving the nunchuck and the remote faster and faster. Sure, you'll be winded, but think of the baserunning!
We can not wait. Bring it on, baseball season!
