This title plays very different from one game system to another. On Xbox 360 and PS3, you have to master the difficult new "Swing Stick" settings and the "Precision Throw Control," which makes you learn how to manage each fielder's arm strength when trying to toss out runners. Pitching on the Xbox 360 is complicated, involving sophisticated moves on the thumb sticks. On the Wii, you simply pick a pitch type, like fastball or slider, then hold up your Wii wand and motion your wrist forward at the right time. Easy as pie.
The problem with the Wii is that its simple 2K8 is not very alluring for a hardcore gamer. And there's no online 2K8 gaming on Wii, as opposed to the 360 and PS 3. Wii graphics are also blocky and cartoony, compared to the Xbox 360 and PS 3's much more realistic artistry.
