MLB 2K8 Demo Now Available on Xbox Live Marketplace

mlb-2k8.jpgThe sequel to last year’s best baseball game was released this week, and if you haven’t picked it up yet you’ll want to head over to the Xbox Live Marketplace and check out the demo before you do. 1UP’s review wasn’t all praises, as the radical new pitching system sounds like it might be a real turn-off for some gamers.

And while it’s rewarding when you paint the black for a called strike three, it’s just too easy to consistently make a mistake pitch — and there’s no shortage of punishment if you do. Teams will remorselessly tee off if you’ve got bad location, and we’re not talking about doubles. We’re talking homer after homer after homer. Base-clearing shots will leave you fearful of the power prospects of even a Punch and Judy eighth hitter — which just isn’t fun.

The demo weighs in at just under 1GB, and presumably we’ll see a release of the demo on the PlayStation Store tomorrow as a part of the weekly Store update.
