MLB The Show 23: Best Hitting View to Use and Why
Image: Push Square
In MLB The Show 23, there are dozens of
hitting views to choose from, so selecting the best will come down somewhat to personal preference. However, generally you should be looking for a camera that gives you the best view of the pitcher and the ball. This means that popular options like Fish Eye and Broadcast are among the worst options you can choose, because while they look visually appealing, they will impede your ability to hit the ball.
While the camera you choose will ultimately come down to personal preference, we've included a handful of our recommendations, along with some pros and cons for each, in the table below:
A clean, clear, close-up view of the pitcher and ball trajectory.
No funky lenses or positioning, enabling for optimal, unobstructed timing.
Compromised presentation, as you'll see only the edges of your batter's body on the screen.
Strike Zone 3
A good compromise providing a clear, unobstructed view of the pitcher without any funky lenses.
Better looking presentation, with most of your batter on screen.
Zoomed out quite a bit, making the pitcher's motions harder to read and the PCI slightly more fiddly to control.
Strike Zone High
Extremely similar to Strike Zone, providing a clear view of the pitcher and the trajectory of the ball, angled slightly higher up.
No funky lenses, enabling for perfect, unobstructed timing.
Presentation is compromised, as most of your batter will appear off screen.
Our recommendation would be to use
Strike Zone, as this does undoubtedly give you the best possible view of the pitcher and the trajectory of the ball. While this option does sacrifice a little presentational lustre, it'll significantly improve your ability to make good contact with the ball, which is comfortably one of the most important aspects of the game.
If you're struggling to settle upon an optimal option, remember that you do get four
Custom camera slots as well, and you can play with these to find a position that works best for you. We'd still recommend you zoom in as closely to the pitcher as possible, however, as it's imperative you're able to read his throwing motion and the trajectory of the ball.
