MLB '08: The Show (PS3) Demo

I downloaded the demo and it lets you play three innings in a game with the Red Sox vs. the Rockies.

It's an "A." Outstanding.

Two things, in particular, stood out for me:
1. The fidelity to real life of where balls were fouled based on the type of pitch and its location. Very, very impressive.
2. In most sports games, there will be a ton of animations that break immersion--a player suddenly running at top speed after a play is over, for example, or players accelerating unrealistically. Immersion breaking animations that I saw in three innings: ZERO. The animations are truly spectacular.

The full game should be in stores March 4, and I can't wait.
