High Heat 2003 ships. It's sooooo reeaal!

3DO has announced the shipment of High Heat Baseball 2003, this year's first baseball game on the PS2. The game is endorsed by Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher, Curt Schilling. Shaping up to be one of the premier baseball titles out right now, PSX Extreme will continue to bring you coverage.

Game features:

  • New Graphics Engine: Ultra-realistic, smoother animations, lifelike lighting, dynamic camerawork, exceptional special effects, player model differentials, and extremely realistic stadiums. 
  • New Game Modes: Create-A-Player, Player Editor, Home Run Derby, Fantasy Draft, Play-offs, Batting Practice, and the 3DO original creation "TWO ON TWO SHOWDOWN." 
  • Realistic Ballpark Sound: Intelligent crowd sounds featuring 3DO's Interactive Crowd Excitement System (crowds react to great plays by the home team, boo stall tactics by the visitors, etc.), dynamic two man booth featuring Dave O'Brien of the Florida Marlins and color man Chuck Valenches of the Pittsburgh Pirates minor league organization, and stadium announcer Roy Steele of the Oakland Athletics. 
  • Analog Control: Full 360-degree range of motion for fielding, pitching, and batting. 
  • Tuning Menu: Users can customize many game settings to their personal liking. Elements such as base runner speed, pitch speed, computer-hitting skill, etc. can all be adjusted. 
  • Loadable Custom Rosters: Users can save modified rosters from a season and use them later in exhibition play, trade them with friends, or start a new season with them. 
  • Extra "Free Agent" Players: Extra player pool composed of unsigned players allow for roster flexibility and injured player replacement. 
  • Injuries: High Heat features everything from little nagging injuries to the season-ending kind. Injuries are a part of baseball, so they're a part of High Heat. 
  • Unsurpassed Pitcher and Batter Artificial Intelligence: Batters work the count and take you deep in you make a mistake, pitchers nibble at the corners, and keep your hitters off-balance with a mixture of speeds and locations.
