Acclaim freaks out

   Acclaim Sports released a statement today that refuted Midway's claims as the top-selling baseball game in 2002. Officially, MLB Slugfest 20-03 is only the best selling baseball game on the PS2, not all consoles. Since Midway only claimed to be the top-selling baseball game on the PS2, we find it rather unfounded for Acclaim to issue such a bold statement, but apparently they do not want any confusion in which game is number one.

   "Claiming to having the #1 title on only one platform is such a bush-league, rookie move, as any true baseball fan knows, there are no shortcuts to calling yourself a champion," said David Knies, director of Acclaim Sports. "There are nine innings in baseball and three next-generation systems, and unless you win the whole thing, you haven't really won anything. And just like in baseball, the stats don't lie, which is why consumers have made All-Star Baseball the #1 baseball franchise in the marketplace for the past two years, and we're ready to defend our championship title with All-Star Baseball 2004."
