Got the game today... it seems to be harder than MVP 05 to me. I'm not very good /w the baseball games anyway, but I could put MVP 05 on the lowest difficulty and have some fun ripping homers /w Chipper and Andruw Jones'... as well as strike everyone out /w Hudson and Smoltz. I find this fun. I put the NCAA game on that setting, and batting was still pretty difficult for me... I guess I just have to face it, I suck.
BTW there's a new batting system for the varsity-MVP settings... called "cock and fire" or some crap like SOS's offense... anyway, you cock back /w the right thumbstick down, and then swing by moving it up. Interesting new system.
