I never saw a single commercial for Power Pros. The only ads I ever saw was a little 4x4 inch ad in a SI Kids magazine I was reading in the dentist office just out of sheer boredom as they didn't have ESPN magazine.

I've seen a couple full page ads in SIKids. I also saw like one little banner ad on IGN. But all of them were clearly directed towards kids.

Yeah. 2K Needs to advertise ALL their games if they expect to make a profit.

It's really a shame too because the games were so much fun and included alot of replay value. I'm thinking and hoping that the game series spreads by word of mouth and playing. Perhaps even talking about it on other forums etc. by making references. I've discovered or even rediscovered several things because of people just mentioning it. If you remember Phoenix Wright and/or know the story behind that series remembers it did not fare well in sales in the beginning, but it's now a classic series here in the States.

There's always next year!

You've got a point there Mascot. For a while, I didn't touch my Power Pros. Then I found a review for it on YouTube, my nostalgia came back, and I found this site. Maybe we still have a chance.

Well, that depends on 2k sports, if they want to make it.

Ok guys, seriously, this thread is really unless. There has been at least 2 more of this exact threads and look at the entire 3rd page. There is nothing even about the topic man. And if you look at the quality of the posts, they are all mostly 1 liners.

It's funny to be here in 2013, noticing posts from 2009 wondering if power pros is dying out

Interesting thread bump, but yeah the time a lot of us went through in 09-early 10 with PP09 (The hype was so huge, with catcher mode, wbc, extended my life mode, and the 5 team success mode) and not having it really made a lot of us question if this site was meant to stay active and such.
We stuck it through, though.
