Major League Baseball 2K7 (or MLB 2K7) is a Major League Baseball licensed baseball simulation video game developed by Kush Games and published by 2K. Released on February 27, 2007, it is the only 2007 MLB licensed game available for the Xbox and Xbox 360. It is also available for the PlayStation Portable, the PlayStation 2 and, for the first time, the PlayStation 3, though its competition came in the form of MLB 07: The Show from 989 Sports.
Portable versions for the Game Boy Advance, Nintendo DS, and PlayStation Portable were released. The new iteration features a stunningly lifelike batter/pitcher interface on seventh generation console systems, as well as more detailed models and AI tweaks. Last year’s “Inside Edge” also returns, with a tweak in that playing to a player’s strengths causes a boost in ability.
Other additions include a ramped up player and manager ejection system, including a minigame in which the player controlling the manager will tap a button to argue with the umpire; in multiplayer, the opponent will take control of the umpire and try to precision tap a button to eject the opponent’s manager. A managerial ejection will cause the player’s team to be controlled by the CPU.
Umpires also have their own personalities and AI, meaning each umpire will have a unique style of calling a game. An important feature is the use of the joystick’s force feedback during same-machine multiplayer – as the invisible icon reaches the edges of the strike zone, the rumble will increase. Other minor touches include ball boys retrieving baseballs, fans catching foul balls, and dynamic bullpen activity.
