    With just over a week to go until release on the PS3 and Vita very little has been seen of MLB 14: The Show in action. Some gameplay videos were taken off-screen of an early build in January, and trailers have featured snippets of gameplay, but that represents the extent to which MLB 14 has been put on display. A demo arriving on Tuesday would appear to be unlikely - confirmation of whether there will be one or not is expected tomorrow. Three out of the past four years SCEA has chosen not...

    While those eagerly anticipating the PlayStation 4 version of MLB 14: The Show had to be happy that the game would be out the first Tuesday of May - the earliest possible date once SCEA announced it would land that month - the short five week gap from the PlayStation 3 version releasing has only amplified the perceived necessity of a "trade-up" program. If the company hopes to get consumers who have held on to their PS3 to buy the game before also getting it on their PS4 they'll need to o...

  • Press Row Hangout Clip: The Focus On Speeding Up Baseball Games

    Given the development time that has gone in to attempting solutions to the issue that is the length of time it takes to play a single baseball game - and marketing which is focusing on it as a major selling point - a segment from the latest Press Row Hangout tackled the topic. The poll posted last week established that consumers do see it as a serious issue that hampers the experience and limits the sport's reach in video games so it's something that is going to continue to be experimented ...

    SCEA has posted an extensive developer blog and accompanying video to detail how Road To The Show is evolving with MLB 14: The Show. The popular mode will feature a new Amateur Showcase series to determine player potential, new advancement logic that removes goals and replaces them with logic based on performance and standing at the position within an organization, the ability to play the mode as a current MLB player with reduced attributes at the start, a handful of new training mini-games,...

    Last week SCEA announced May 6 as the release date for MLB 14: The Show on PlayStation 4 meaning it'll be out five weeks after the PS3 and Vita and over two months after baseball would arrive in a typical year. From the latest Press Row Hangout is the segment discussing the date - how it'll affect purchase plans and the importance of a "trade-up" promotion being offered.

  • Sped Up Baseball Games Desired By Consumers But There’s No Ideal Solution

    Posted March 14th, 2014 at 1:30 pm 6 Comments ╗
    With both MLB 14: The Show and RBI Baseball 14 making reduced time to complete games a selling point this year a poll was posted earlier in the week to gauge how important that is to consumers interested in baseball.  The final tally after collecting votes from over 3K respondents shook out with a near even split which essentially means it is important but the perfect solution either doesn't (and can never) exist or hasn't materialized yet. In total 53% feel that it's important to speed ...
  • MLB 14: The Show PS4 Release Date Set

    Posted March 13th, 2014 at 12:15 pm 12 Comments ╗
    When SCEA revealed the April 1 release date for MLB 14: The Show on PS3 and Vita the company only stated that the PlayStation 4 version would arrive on an unspecified date in May. Now that date is known: Tuesday, May 6. The early May release is great news for those eagerly anticipating the game. However it will also amplify the necessity of a "trade-up" deal if SCEA hopes for consumers with both consoles to buy first on PS3 before moving on to the PS4. Five weeks between the two will not ...
  • How Important Is Reducing The Time It Takes To Play Baseball Games?

    Posted March 11th, 2014 at 12:30 pm 8 Comments ╗
    One of the most common gripes with sim baseball video games - and something that many believe prohibits a more mainstream crowd from playing them regularly - is how long each game takes to complete. Often a single game will encroach on an hour and a good portion of that won't be very engaging. While some other sports may find themselves taking nearly as long they don't feature 162 game seasons making Franchise mode daunting to advance through without considerable simming of the schedule. ...

    In terms of logistics getting an Online Franchise mode right would appear to be more difficult with baseball than the other sports that have attempted it thus far. The long seasons require compression - or some other form of realistic simulation - and that can dramatically alter the way rotations, fatigue, and injuries have to be handled. SCEA today released some details on the structure of Online Franchise. Aspects such as league settings, scouting, live draft, and free agency are touche...
