Little League World Series Swings Onto PS3, 360 This Summer

Look, it's Memorial Day. What do you want, huge news headlines from public relations firms and publishers who aren't at work today?

Up to this point, one could only find Activision's Little League World Series titles on Nintendo platforms, but according to Joystiq, it has been revealed that the latest iteration will find its way to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. Little League World Series 2010 will be out in July and give kids the chance to swing for the fences in Little League's most prestigious nationwide competition. Most of us never got anywhere near the LLWS when playing back in the day, so it might be fun to take part of the virtual reincarnation. Said Activision's David Oxford:

"We felt it was time to finally bring the popular Little League series to gamers playing Xbox 360 and PlayStation(R)3. Little League(R) World Series Baseball 2010 is visually stunning and packed with tons of new content, while remaining an accessible pick-up-and-play game for the whole family."

It sort of reminds us of Backyard Baseball but it had best turn out a whole lot better. The only odd part about this piece of news is that apparently, they have every intention of leaving the Wii and DS behind; Little League World Series 2010 has only been announced for the PS3 and 360...it seems entirely illogical on the surface but we're sure Activision has their reasons.

Its about how much profit can be made and in what market:

Market 1 70 million Wii users that mostly only buy Nintendo games and a very, very saturated DS market where sales are dying for a large number of DS titles with only a small and select few selling huge amounts.

Market 2:
PS3 and 360 where users tend to buy more diverse games and more games per user are purchased.

I read that in Japan they were pretty upset that 2009 was released on the PS2 because of how great this series is and that it deserved to be on the PS3. There were comments about how many features this game has. I've always dismissed this as fodder being that it has "cutesy" characters.

That's odd. Frankly, it looks like it should stay on the Wii. They might be trying to say it's something interesting enough to work on the PS3 like Modnation Racers or LBP2, but for some reason I doubt it will be worth the switch. I know the PS3 gamers have more diverse collections but I don't think it's diverse enough to run out and buy a little league world series game when there seems to be a steady flow of exclusives and what not. The only shot I think this game might have if it's released in the middle of the summer during the probable low spot in good games.

Responded to everybody's greetings on Ben's week in review, thanks again and as I said, the secret is safe with me (unfortunately for you guys) but I think people will be satisfied when it is released :)

To be honest, I have no idea. I found it online a long time ago and thought it was cool so I saved it. I've been using it as my icon online for quite some time now on multiple websites. The place where I found the picture had no description or artist name so it's a complete mystery :)

Sounds like this game could have been the ideal candidate for implementing both, the Move controller, & putting in 3D to good usage too.
