Sony San Diego's MLB The Show series is renowned for its depth and complexity. It offers perhaps the widest variety of control schemes for any sports simulation, but they still don't make it a franchise you'd call "accessible." Hitting in particular has always confounded even the game's most skilled, hardcore contingent — look at the games' online leaderboards, and you'll see low batting averages and high strikeout rates for the top players.
The developers are taking a two-pronged approach to that problem in MLB 13 The Show.
