  • Around this time of the year the next version of OOTP is never far away. For some it is not a question IF to buy the latest version but WHEN to buy it. Some argue that 35 USD is worth it while others have other […]

    • We generally switch around June or July in real time, the game is usually on sale for the all star game and by then the majority of bugs and whatnot for the new version have been ironed out. Switching is usually necessary because it’s hard to find GMs for teams with older versions of the game.

      Personally, I completely disagree that the difference between OOTP 18 and 19 was simply a “roster update” as the AI is markedly improved and the strategic changes to bullpen usage especially were worth the update alone, so I think it’s a bit disingenuous to suggest upgrading from 19 to 20 would be just a roster update like you did.

      I hear you on the issues with the other games the company makes, but OOTP is one of the few games that CLEARLY upgrade several aspects of the game from version to version, and at a time when most video games are $60 minimum, getting the newest OOTP for somewhere between $25 and $45 depending on when you order it is a steal.

      But not to worry, I can’t imagine we upgrade any time sooner than June or July, which is months from now. If someone were to find a quarter a day (or merely spend 25 cents less a day) from now until June or July and it should pay for itself.
