  • MLB 14: The Show on PS4 Suffering From Extensive Loading Times
    Posted May 7th, 2014 at 4:00 pm 21 Comments
    One of the hopes for the new hardware was that it would cut down on loading times for games like MLB: The Show. The series has struggled with them in the past - along with NCAA Football it was the worst in this regard last generation. Unfortunately the loading times have not only failed to improve but have gotten much longer.  (more…)...
  • MLB 14: The Show “Game of Thrones” PlayStation 4 Intro Video
    Posted May 7th, 2014 at 12:00 pm 4 Comments
    Normally an intro video for a sports game isn't worth sitting through but MLB 14: The Show on PS4 presents an exception. This one is inspired by the title sequence for the HBO series Game of Thrones that has become a part of pop culture - even The Simpsons used similar visuals and music for one episode's opening.

    Though Sony botched the digital release of MLB 14: The Show - not so much harming it but the likelihood affected consumers will buy digital again - the PS4 version is now available to everyone. For part of the day I'll be on to live stream and that can be viewed at the Pastapadre Twitch page or embedded below! Feel free to watch and chat along with the action. Full isolated gameplay videos, impressions, and more will be posted in the days that follow. [Update] Will be back on streaming la...
  • Press Row Discussion: The Failed Digital Launch of The Show on PS4
    Posted May 6th, 2014 at 11:45 am 5 Comments
    MLB 14: The Show is now finally available to download for those who ordered it digitally for the PlayStation 4 arriving nearly 15 hours late. For those looking to find the download button it may only show right now by going to the game page in the PS Store in the "New This Month" section - or do it through the PlayStation app. Early this morning T.J. Lauerman, Rich Grisham and I got together for an impromptu discussion on the developments and what it means for The Show and perception of d...
  • Sony Botches Digital Launch of MLB 14: The Show on PS4
    Posted May 6th, 2014 at 7:30 am 12 Comments
    MLB 14: The Show on PlayStation 4 is one of the most anticipated launches in the early months of the new generation but Sony has dramatically fumbled its digital launch. The game was advertised to be available for download as of 12:01 ET and yet has still not been made available. Even when it finally goes out the 47GB download will leave consumers sitting around for many more hours to download and install before they can begin playing. There are already precious few advantages to buying d...
  • Digital Pre-Downloading Not Happening for The Show; Release Day Coverage Plans
    Posted May 5th, 2014 at 2:00 pm 18 Comments
    Though Sony advertised the new pre-downloading ability for the PS4 with the latest update, it now appears MLB 14: The Show won't be the first game to utilize it. The company has, for some inexplicable reason, refused to give a definitive yes or no to the matter in the days since so at this point the assumption has to be it won't be available to download before midnight. That's unfortunate as one of the few advantages over buying a physical copy is having it immediately and at a massive size ...
  • Digital Game Pre-Downloading Available on PS4 Just in Time for MLB 14: The Show
    Posted April 30th, 2014 at 9:15 am 34 Comments
    [Update 5/5] At this point it doesn't look good for pre-downloading to be offered for The Show. Sony has refused to give a definitive yes, or no, to the matter for some inexplicable reason and the process has not started if it will be. A significant system update arrived today for the PlayStation 4 with new features like ShareFactory, HD quality streaming and archiving through Twitch or UStream, and USB exporting of gameplay and screenshots among others. One of the features that will com...

  • First Patch Out Now for MLB 14: The Show
    Posted April 23rd, 2014 at 12:15 pm 18 Comments
    SCEA today released the first post-release update to MLB 14: The Show on the PS3. Those waiting on the PS4 version should also be interested in the changes as they'll likely be applied in a release day patch - which is now less than two weeks away - for that one as well. A number of both offline and online related problems are addressed however the very poor general online performance and lack of reliability in Online Franchise mode are not cited among them. Continue on for complete detai...

    The latest video for MLB 14: The Show features a look at the Dynamic Cameras for batting and fielding introduced to the series this year. As with the other recent videos for the game, it includes PlayStation 4 footage to show things off, however note that the option to use Dynamic Cameras is available in the PS3 and Vita versions as well. New to MLB 14, dynamic batting cameras will change the way you see the game from the batter's box. The new camera is designed to add more perspective, m...
