I know it's not the best baseball game around, but it's also the only baseball sim on Switch and Xbox One for now. Microsoft's website lists it at $7.99, but is $5.99 for Xbox Live Gold members (thanks Sirradiodude). Prices good until 1/3.

$5.99 is for Xbox Gold Members, $7.99 is non-XBG
I appreciate you taking the time to post but I'd probably pass if this was free.

If you've never ever played a baseball game on any console before -
you will like this. Smilie
If you've ever played a baseball game on a mobile device -
you'll be disappointed. vomit
If you've ever played MLB "The Show" on any device -
you'll be enraged they did not pay you to download this. Mad

If you need a laugh -
go read some game reviews... reminds me of sugar-free gummy bear reviews BUT with more anger. laugh out loud

If you're a Xbox owner check out Super Mega Baseball 2. It's not a "sim" or as cheap, but IMO it's one of the best baseball games ever made.

Nice find, though Google Play tells me my phones suck and are not compatible.

I just got RBI 17 physical copy on clearance @ BB for $12.00. Seems like this is a good deal.

Oh absolutely this is not a great baseball sim. You'll notice I didn't even mention the PS4 version, which besides being significantly more at $19.99, you are doing yourself a great disservice if you play a baseball game on PS4 and it's not The Show.

However, for now this is the only current sim option on Switch and Xbox One. Maybe if EA can revive MVP Baseball someday, we can get some real competition going again.

No doubt.nod
I am a big baseball game fan... I was unaware XB1 had no "real" MLB game until after I purchased my XB1. If I had known I 100% would not have purchased it. For me it's that big of a deal.
I keep my PS3 to primarily play The Show 16 w/ user updated rosters.... God Bless those users. Please
I just remember buying RBI 17- thinking there was no way it was as bad as everyone said it was... had to be whiners.
It was worse. I couldn't sell that game fast enough.
My theory is the only made a few hundred physical copies of each RBI Baseball game for XB1 and they're constantly being resold to make it look like its popular. Applause

One comment sort of mentioned this. Is the Switch version any better than mobile? If it's just a meh port that doesn't look or payany better, I'll likely just save a few dollars and use Google Play credit.

Switch has Baseball Stars Professional which, if I'm not mistaken, is what the NES version is based off of- but no, it's not the NES version. I'm STILL waiting on them releasing Baseball Stars 2 on the switch- one of my all time favorite games.

Better graphics than the NES version but no editing Frown

This 2x. Can't play baseball Sims like the annual The Show games. Too boring, super mega baseball 2 is awesome!
