GameTrailers got a camera on MLB 11: The Show at CES, giving us a 90-second duel between Boston’s Josh Beckett and Philadelphia’s Ryan Howard. The hitter appears to be using the game’s new analogue controls.
It appears that way because of Howard’s multiple hitches as he waits on the pitch; that, and the hitter was late on every pitch, indicating the new control will take some getting used to. Fear not, the traditional button-based commands will also be a part of The Show, selectable in the game’s options menu.
Pitching will also receive a new analog-based set of commands this year; you can also use the series’ more familiar pitch meter if you prefer.
MLB 11 The Show, for the PS3, PS2 and PSP, is due out March 8.
