Posted November 4th, 2013 at 5:45 pm


SCEA today officially announced MLB 14: The Show which will debut on the PS4 in March along with PS3 and PS Vita versions. The news was accompanied by the reveal of Miguel Cabrera as cover athlete at the MLB Player’s Choice Awards. He was selected for the honor by the players themselves. Check out the FB album for the first three screenshots.

An exclusive pre-order bonus at Gamestop will provide $20 worth of “universal in-game currency” which is probably the last thing consumers want to hear about becoming a bigger part of any sports game. No details yet on what other retailers may be providing as their own incentives. Continue on to check out the official teaser trailer!

    • Josh

      lol did you not see the nba 2k14 next gen trailers?

      • jr

        Did you really just ask that question.

        Anywho, the show doesn’t come out until March, so doing the math, when it comes out it will be the most realistic looking video game ever

        baseball can go way deeper. Basketball can’t make stadium walls or grass….They have hardwood and players….thats….it

      Playstation Blog has some more, including:

      “Without revealing too much, we did want to give you a taste of some of the many advancements we’re making to the product for 2014. Here are just a few:

      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!

      Thanks to the power of PS4, MLB 14 The Show is going to be the most beautiful baseball product we’ve ever created.

      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.

      And finally, what makes baseball great are those “big moments.” The power of PS4 will allow gamers to share those moments using the new “share feature” by capturing and publishing their most thrilling baseball moments, from hitting a game-winning grand slam, to picking off a runner at first for a crucial win in a World Series game.”

    • Jesus

      I gotta be honest though. 13 might be the greatest sports video game of all time. But now you’ll get that plus incredible details, I’d say you won lol.

  • el3men2lkot

    the sox beards are coming!!!!! with those next gen graphics Napoli will be pleased lol

  • jake

    In game currency better not be like how nba 2K got ruined by VC.

  • fantasyboi

    I am really interested in the “quick counts” It doesn’t seem clear how this will work to make games quicker but I am all for it! Games r very long and now maybe u can actually play 162 games. And the year to year gaming carry over save will help this be easier also!! So STOKED!!! Is it March yet??

  • yohouse
