I just passed Joe DiMaggio on WSB2k3!

After some sleepless nights wondering if I could get a hit in the last few at bats Brook Fordyce of my Orioles finally broke Joe D's consecutive 56 game hitting streak! I beat the record on my last at bat in the 9th inning. I thought I was going to have a heart attack! I also passed over the 257 hits season record (forgot the historic guy's name that I beat) with over 25 games to still go using Jerry Hairston of the Orioles. I'm getting close to Barry Bonds 73 homer record with 54 currently using Richie Sexson that I traded for. I have over 130 xbox games but I haven't touched any of them since I've gotten this game. If you're in to stats this game is addicting!!!! Kudos to Sega for this great game.

Coolness, now if only a game would say "Hey Congrats you just beat "whomever's" record". I was playing NBA2K3 and T-Mac had 101 points in the game, no broken Wilt record popped on the screen.

good lord, 130 xbox games....I didn't even know they made that many, lol.

As for WSB 2k3, yeah great game. I beat all kinds of records. Of course I am playing on an easy setting (Pro I think) so it's understandable.

Oh almost forgot, in WSB 2k3, a message usually pops up to say "so and so has just set a new record for _____"

nice touch.

Can anyone confirm the 130+ games?

I didn't think there were that many games for the system.

If true, then cool.

I only have like 18 PS2 games, and that's because I am always trading or selling the ones I finished.

but sheesh, 130 xbox games....the system has only been out, what, 2 years? that means you'd have to buy like almost 6 games a month to get that many.....

Or just three spindles of DVD-Rs, but that would still run you $100 or so.

I actually have over 175 games. My dvd addiction transferred over to games. I'm only missing about 5 or so games to have the whole collection out there. I'd complete the whole deal but I can't break down and buy Kabuki Warriors, Shrek, Sneakers, and a few others because I feel those may taint my collection. Keep in mind though that all 175 of my games are not super hits. I'd only classify about 15 as super hits!

how did you get so many? rent and burn? or are they all originals? surely you don't like all 175 of them? did you buy/rent/burn games that sucked just to have the whole collection?

:/

lesterlong,

Did you hear your AI teammates yell out...

Pass the damn ball, T-Mac!!!!



On my version of NBA2k3, I fixed a horrible wrong (the NBA granting the Lakers Shaq for free).
He now plays along side T-Mac with his original #32.

I bought all of them (all originals) either used and some new. No, I don't like all of them I was just trying to complete the whole collection thinking it would be cool but some of the games sucked so bad that I couldn't bring myself to complete it. I may go back when Kabuki Warriors is 25 cents and buy it to complete the set. This is the same problem (buying everything) I had with my dvds until I trimmed my collection. I suspect that I will do the same with my games someday.
