For a few years now, due to strange video game licensing with MLB, the only “cross platform” game that’s been available has been 2K’s MLB game (this year mlb 2k11). However, the best game has probably been a game called “MLB The Show”, which is exclusively a Playstation game. That’s because the strange licensing allows for companies to make MLB games for their own platforms, just not for ALL platforms. Word is the license runs out after the 2012 season, at which point, MLB will probably not renew with Take 2/2K, as there’s been quality issues all along. The Sony game is far superior, although I play the 2K game because of achievements on the 360. Anyway…
This year’s edition from Sony looks to improve on an already great game. The first previews are coming out, and today I saw a screenshot showing off some players. The one I saw today of interest was of Nelson Cruz. The shot looks pretty darned good. Check it out:
Thanks to Pasta Padre for the shot. A couple of years ago, I did a full review of the MLB The Show game, and while it’s not totally relevant to this year’s game, you can check it out here if you want. I’ll have more on this game (and the MLB 2k11 game) when they become available.
You can pre-order The Show via the link below. If you like baseball and have a Playstation 3, it really is a no brainer.
