I think I've owned the Show in one form or another every year since 09. It's gone from something I just wanted to try out to my single most coveted annualized franchise every year

The thread title is disrespectful btw

Game is downloaded and ready to go.

Setting my alarm for 4AM EST so I can get up early and play a few games before work. Can't wait.

PSN is squall211 if anyone would like to add me for some online play sometime.

I miss the early 2000's when the rivalry was more heated and Zimmer was getting thrown to the ground. I'm hoping it's a battle for the East between us this year

LOL! The fighting is now just between fans. The on-field rivalry may be dead for now, but look in the stands and you're bound to see fans of the two teams fist fighting when the game is in Boston. They used to do that in New York as well, but the Yankees have priced the fans who would get drunk and fight out of the newer stadium, so they can't afford to go there to fight. LOL.

If the Yankees were only available via a DLC which the Yankees controlled the pricing on in this game, I'd have to play as some other team. #Greedy. Also, the game isn't representative of the experience at the new Yankee Stadium at all. The game shows lots of fans in their seats. When I go to games, most are up shopping somewhere, and the area behind home plate is nearly empty. LOL. Love the game though.

I remember going to games at the old Yankee Stadium when I was a kid for Boston games and there was always a fight near me. Good times!

The game is great, I typically buy every other year. I feel like it's definitely gotten stale visually though. I was really excited about the PS4 versions and have bought two of them but I find my playtime goes down with every release.

I just want to be blown away by it like I was in 09, I think it was when they overhauled the game? Haven't had that moment in this gen yet.

I usually liked the Yankees. They are on the east coast, so it makes it easier to watch games from them. They are also usually pretty good.

I know the Twins have German guy this season, Max Kepler, which is kinda cool. The Twins are not especially good though.

Honestly, probably not unless you play Road to the Show or online, or if Retro mode appeals to you.

Graphics will be sightly better than 14 (huge improvements if you have a PS4 Pro) but otherwise most changes since then are ones that you'd need to be a baseball fan to notice (updated rosters, more realistic hit variations due to improved physics etc)

I think what DD has become is a big deal. Of course you have to be into that kind of mode.

Yeah, last one I played was the one with Bautista farting on the cover. Reckon I'll grab this year's version, not a baseball fan but RTTS is addictive as hell.

Asked this in another thread but figured OT was better.

Picked up last year's edition and really enjoyed it. Only dug into the Road to the Show mode but was enjoying my 2nd season in the majors after getting called up from AAA. Will i be able to carry on with that character in the new game?

Also, I'd love to get this digitally now that PS4 supports external HD's so it's always at my fingertips. Would I be able to load a bunch of music on their to use to customize the game?

Wasn't thinking I'd upgrade as I didn't play last year's titled as much as expected, but now I may have to.

Damn, good and bad news that puts me back on the fence.

I only put a few hours worth of effort into customizing my in game music, but the included tunes were quite annoying to me so having my own stuff run for the in game menus helped a lot, plus i love the custom walk up music for my player.

Didn't quite get to the point of customizing the foul, fly out and other music cues but definitely intended to do so.

I believe music customization returned last year and has increased options this year. Sounds of the Show I believe it is called.

Yaaas, that's what I wanted to hear.

Makes such a huge difference to me. With other games I'll turn off the in-game music, run the video game sounds out of my tv speaker and my own music through the stereo, but official support is so much better.

Yeah, I think as I get older I appreciate other teams more and more. I'd like to know why the Yankees can't solve Dallas Keuchel of the Astros.

I like the Red Sox, Mets, and several other teams. I can't watch the Twins. LOL.

I mean, if you're looking for reasons, then having a Pro and 4k TV would make the game look significantly better. That along with the roster updates might be enough for you? It really depends if you'd play other things like RTTS or check out retro mode.
