just like i said, but instead of mlbpp09, they were thinking to add all the stuff in the mlb 2009 season and make it mlbpp10 in the beginning of the 2010 year.

I thought I might poke my nose in :D

With the US economy being what it is, 2K games is going to be very reluctant to release "niche" small audience games. The profit margin is simply too small to be worth it.

I'd be fairly confident that the US port of this series is on hiatus until the overall economy improves and someone at 2K or somewhere else (if 2K sells the rights for the US port) is willing to try again (I'm sure they will).

If I had to set a date, I'd probably guess something around 2012+

This site may or may not be sustained to that point, although I'm sure if it were to break down for good (I see no reason it wouldn't other than DS's service provider cans him), than someone else will start something new when the next game is released.

Maybe they can't find the money to produce a game every year, so every other year would be acceptable for their budget.
But that still doesn't explain Baseball Blast.

This place is gonna fall soon just because of 2ksports I guess

you'll notice that the that used to be active everyday people are almost history, lanceberkman hasn't even been on since August 3rd

sites like this seem to die at some point, it was great to be here in it's glory days, but now the glory days of this site look gone and all that's left is helping new people and free for all. Especially with school starting, this place will be quiet

The only way I could think of anybody buying baseball blast is if their multi-trillionaires who buy literally everything that ever comes out in stores.

2K Sports made 2K9 and Front Office Manager suck because they wanted to focus on The BIGS 2. They will just push off Power Pros 09 so they can "concentrate" on Baseball Blast. They like their gimmicky sucky games and not the good ones with good concepts.

Why hate them? They engineered the partnerhsip and supplied the licence for Power Pros to come to America. Without that, there would be no MLB Game, no site, none of it. Annoyed now, perhaps, but hate? No.

Great to see you're still alive Max. :)

Well, PP was dissappointing in sales, sadly. No debate on that. Ratings were a different story. It was a new game, wasn't marketed well, and wasn't well known. What did 2K expect? It wasn't a big name game, i.e. Madden, or MLB 2Kwhatever, so it didn't sell well. Doesn't matter if your YouTube channel has hilarious videos, if nobody discovers them, it won't matter. Same with this. It's a great game, but didn't get publicity as the other games do, so it failed in sales. 2K isn't prepared to pay more to try to make more when they don't have to advertise as much to get $$$ with MLB 2K__. *sigh*
