PlayStation, your home for Baseball.
Another year another edition of MLB The Show; this year’s version hitting the Vita, PS3 and PS4. They’ve done something a bit different this year for the box art in the US, polling the players (not the fans as done previously) to find their choice for a cover photo. Miguel Cabrera was chosen, and will adorn the art for all versions of the game in America. The Canadian cover will still be chosen by the Canadian fans.
Also announced is a US pre-order bonus, giving in game currency of $20 for GameStop purchases of any version of MLB 14 The Show.
Actual changes in this new version of The Show are as follows (though the Vita version may vary);
- We know how much time and effort our fans put into their Seasons, Franchises, and Road To The Show players. So beginning with MLB 14 The Show, you can now carry over your saves to future versions of MLB The Show. MLB 14 The Show lays the foundation for year-to-year saves, meaning you never have to worry about starting your Franchise or Road to the Show seasons over!
- For some of you, full 9-inning baseball games may be too long for your liking, so we’ve created an all-new Quick Counts option, which utilizes generated pitch counts allowing gamers to play through full games faster than ever. Realistic statistics in this shortened gameplay experience have not been compromised. Users will now be able to play a full 9 inning game in less than 30 minutes, essentially cutting traditional game times in half.
- We think Road To The Show is the deepest, most realistic single-player experience in sports video games, and we’re making it even better. A few of the new features include a new advancement system, new intuitive player creation process, and all new pre-draft prospect showcase.
Check out the teaser trailer for a taste (though it’s obviously PS4-oriented);
Coming Spring 2014.
