Default MLB 08: Doubled play-by-play commentary to 10 gigs this year.

http://www.1up.com/do/previewPage?cId=3165668

And they put up some new screens like....

Plus I didn't see a thread started about IGN's excellent producer interview.

Looks like a massive upgrade this year for the best baseball game out there, especially with the graphics. Franchise mode looks vastly improved and play-by-play commentary has been doubled to 10 gb. Can't wait.

good, major complaint was the canned commentary that repeated constantly.

i feel a 'dvd-9 is good enough' vs 'just use more compression' argument is coming

Eh is that in the IGN preview? I hate baseball games and i'm not trudging through 6 pages. I don't see any mention of 10 gigs on the first link.

But sure it could be compressed, but likely they just wouldn't do it to that extreme on a DVD game... note that its also coming out on the PS2.

But you're right MS screwed up big time using DVD9, now they can't have 10 gigs of commentary on MLB 08!

Blasphemy!

You know this doesn't have to be about compression every single time. Some of us don't want our audio compressed IF the developers obviously have the space to do it. If they have the space for more commentary and higher quality audio, and they utilize that free space to make their game better in some way, how is this not a good thing?

Either way if more space isn't a good thing and we can't celebrate when developers improve their games by utilizing it then I can't help but wonder why we even need DVD in the first place.

Yes more space = good, but this isn't a proper use to justify bluray over DVD which is where the arguement is heading.

here's my revelation on my 360 vs. ps3 audio via Toslink.

the 360 sounds cleaner and better via toslink
the ps3 puts the 360's sound to SHAME...
I get the better audio out of the ps3 and for less volume level...
ex. my reciever set at -40 will sound quiet with 360 games, ALL of them.
my reciever set at -40db will sound loud on my ps3...if I lower the volume to -60 it sounds like the 360 at -40

the kicker...some games on the ps3 sound louder than others...most notably, Motor storm is by far a fuckin loud game for some reason..

as for MLB 08...I am the rare breed that preferred MLB2k7 just because the swing stick.

Keep fighting the good fight kickingtotalass. I know you have that viral marketing salary you get pays for your mortage.

Here's a fun fact Kiddos:

Compression uses cpu cycles to *gasp* DECOMPRESS which means you have less power for graphics, physics, etc. in games.

Don't worry, the xbots will keep the fight alive as it gets sandwiched between the Wii, "graphics are good enough" demographic and the PS3, "Best Graphics, best games" over the next few years.

Yeah i'm sure it pegs the cpu , oh and too bad the 360 has a kick ass GPU to make up for any loss.

You got hard data showing that compression is hurting graphics performance like you say? thought not. Again your just spreading FUD as usual with your DELUSIONS OF GRANDEUR

Huh? It's not an 989 game. Have you ever even heard of The Show? Widely considered the most realistic baseball sim that we as gamer's have.
