Major League Baseball 2K7 is a Major League Baseball licensed baseball simulation video game. For the third year in a row, Derek Jeter is the cover athlete, and ESPN baseball broadcasters Jon Miller and Joe Morgan serve as announcers, despite the loss of the ESPN license to Electronic Arts. Steve Physioc and Jeanne Zelasko cover the pre-game.

History
According to lead developer Ben Brinkman, MLB 2K7 will be skipped as a Wii title; the first game for the Wii will be MLB 2K8[1]. MLB 2K7 was officially announced as gold on February 23, 2007 and was shipped on February 26; its previous release date had been advertised as March 5. [2] This was presumably to prevent early adoption of MLB 07: The Show on Sony platforms. However, the Nintendo DS and GBA versions were conspicuously absent from the announcement.[3] The reported release date for those handhelds is March 19, 2007. It differs vastly from its 2006 release of MLB 2K6.

A demo was released on Xbox Live Marketplace for Xbox 360 owners on February 26, 2007, allowing them to play Game 7 of the 2006 National League Championship Series starting in the 7th inning.

However, the game and the demo of the game for the 360 and all other game formats is only available in North America and Japan with no plans to release the game in the Europe for PAL systems. This news came much to the disappointment of all of the MLB fans across Europe who will probably never see any of the 2K Sports baseball games.

Gameplay
The new iteration features a stunningly lifelike batter/pitcher interface on seventh generation console systems, as well as more detailed models and AI tweaks. Last year's "Inside Edge" also returns, with a tweak in that playing to a player's strengths causes a boost in ability.

Other new features, as published by 2K Sports, include:
* Signature Style: In a GameSpot interview, it was revealed the game would feature the tendencies of 150 major players' tendencies and animations that mimic the real-life stars. According to former MVP Baseball and current 2K Sports Major League Baseball series developer Ben Brinkman, "nearly all of the player faces have been redone from the ground-up using scanned data."
* True Fielding: Fielder positioning, relay and cutoff A.I. are redesigned to allow for better, more authentic Major League defensive play. Defensive alignments are now based on who is at the plate. Rundowns are revamped as well.
* Dynamic Throwing System: A new implementation of responsive throwing mechanics coupled with unique animations for infield, outfield and situational throws.
* Franchise Finance: A revised, beefier franchise mode including team news, attendance, ticket prices and fan "buzz".
* 2K Sports Online Play: Online leagues and tournaments are implemented. The Xbox 360 version will feature full 30 man leagues, while the PlayStation 3 version will support only 12, though the developers claimed they would try to increase the maximum number.
* Online Franchise: Play with up to four of your friends in a franchise or season.

Other additions include a ramped up player and manager ejection system, including a minigame in which the player controlling the manager will tap a button to argue with the umpire; in multiplayer, the opponent will take control of the umpire and try to precision tap a button to eject the opponent's manager. A managerial ejection will cause the player's team to be controlled by the CPU[8]. Umpires also have their own personalities and AI, meaning each umpire will have a unique style of calling a game.[9]. An important feature is the use of the joystick's force feedback during same-machine multiplayer - as the invisible icon reaches the edges of the strike zone, the rumble will increase. (PlayStation 3 owners will not be able to enjoy this feature due to the lack of such a feature in the gamepad.) Other minor touches include ballboys retrieving baseballs, fans catching foul balls, and dynamic bullpen activity.
