•  All-New Release Point Pitching with Confidence Meter MLB for the PSP brings baseball fans the ultimate duel with a revised pitcher/batter interface b y binding player rating attributes with a gamer's skill. While easy to pick up and play, yet difficult to master, MLB for the PSP is a game within the game. Additionally, Pitcher Confidence plays a role in a gamer's ability to hit release spots in the all-new pitch meter, while frequency of mistakes will impact the confidence level of a gamer's hurler, making it more difficult to paint the corners of the strike zone.

•  All-New Playmaker Fielding Marker – With an all-new fielding interface that brings the player attributes together with the user's skill level, players will really need to make the play. In the past games, 90% of outfield fly balls were merely a "can o' corn" – not anymore. With the a ll-new Fielding Zone Marker, the fielder's fielding attribute rating will determine the size of the zone that surrounds the ball and it's eventual landing location. With highly ranked fielders, the ball marker will be displayed sooner and smaller making it easier to judge fly balls.
