    MLB The Show 11

    Released tonight:


    Guess what? They didn't update the franchise mode, at all.

    No contracts are correct, relievers are the best players in the game, and arbitration is still messed up.

    How much money do they spend making these games?

    And they can't get one person to go in there and fact check this stuff? It hasn't been touched, at all. You can tell, they only focus on the look and the feel of the gameplay, meanwhile, franchise mode is completely unrealistic.

    It's so frustrating that they refuse to improve this facet in the game, am I in the minority here of caring about franchise mode being improved and accurate?

    Sadly, OOTP will remain more my style.


    I mean someone had to go in there and select a contract for Lance Berkman....why not take two seconds to check out what he is getting paid and make it slightly more correct? He's making 8, not 2.7, and Nick Punto isn't making over 2 million either, in fact, not a single Cardinals contract (or any team that I saw for that matter) was correct.

    Also, still a ton of made up players, and no prospects (Bryce Harper).

    I know people will make their own rosters, myself included, but you still can't edit the contracts and the arbitration system is ran terribly, almost to the point where it eliminates the fun in playing long term.

    Uh, you can't have anyone who hasn't played a game in the MLB in the game legally.

    Yup, was just going to say that, they're not in the Union yet.

    Coming soon to a TKRO stadium near you

    They'll probably have an update released in the near future.

    They send out an update after the game comes out. Or on opening day, not sure.

    what?

    OOTP and Mogul both do without any issues it seems.

    And they aren't a part of the MLBPA, so how is it exactly illegal?

    That still doesn't fix the issues with contracts and arbitration, something you can't edit/fix

    There is a legal issue with correct contracts - Also there is a guy that makes every minor leaguer, to their batting stance, face, exact pitches if he is a pitcher, everything just Google it.

    This game is hands down the best sports game on the market..the developers put madden to shame.

    You have to download the new roster from the online portion of the game. I think.

    If there are legal issues, then why/how do Mogul and OOTP do it? How is it illegal to simply make a contract figure for the game, it doesn't have to exactly represent millions of dollars and years. I mean they still input dollars and years for players, they are just incorrect...and there is no way for you to edit them.

    As well, the whole arbitration system, it's a joke in the game. Giants fans, are you happy to lose Madison Bumgarner after 2011?

    I agree that since A-rod is making $30M this season they could of simply made him make $28M instead of say $16M (which I am guessing is his salary)

    Rules are rules, I don't know how Mogul & OOTP get around it..maybe they just break it.

    13.3 for 7 years

    Mogul and OOTP are quite large sellers, I would be surprised they could just break the rule and it go unnoticed and unpunished after 10 years.

    I don't have a clue as to why the other games can get away with it, but the MLB, and thus any game they would license, doesn't have the rights to the names of the players until said players have their first at bat or have recorded at least a third of an out in the Majors. Someone should go find out why the other games don't have the same issues.

    Could have something to do with it being text based rather than full on interactive.

    Or perhaps it's their likenesses that are trademarked.
