MLB The Show 2011 Throwing System


I absolutely love how this year the players stats have nothing to do with errors. It is all player controlled! Well here it is in its original context.

Pure Analog Throwing offers a new way to experience fielding as you can now control both the accuracy and power behind your throws. Push the analog stick towards any base to release your throw, or hold L1 while pushing the stick in any direction to throw the ball from the outfield to the cutoff man. Holding the stick longer will put a little extra mustard on the ball, but make sure to keep your throws accurate by pushing the analog stick in a straight line. Keep in mind that you can adjust Analog Throwing difficulty to make your experience more enjoyable.

Remember that all errors are user-controlled this year, meaning play on the field is no longer left to chance. As MLB 11 The Show boasts a dynamic error system, error margins are determined by individual player stats, so accuracy is a must! MLB 11 The Show is the most realistic baseball game ever because your team’s defensive performance is entirely in your hands!

With a little practice, you’ll be filling up your trophy cabinet with Gold Gloves in no time!

This is the last video in the series so get your copy next Tuesday!

    Sports games aren’t really my cup of tea, and I honestly can’t understand how to play baseball.

    However, I’ll have to agree with you, generally in sports games what pisses me of is the fact you don’t have much control over the actions of the players, and this issue seems to be decently addressed here.

    It seems a little complicated at first, but possibly very rewarding and exciting for sure.

    Rewarding is what this appears to be from what I played on the demo. I was happy to knock the ball with the bat lol I myself am not into sports games but this one has me hooked already. It has been a long time since I played one and this seems to be the one to play.
