  • 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. ...
  • Some Details On How Online Franchise Will Work in MLB 14: The Show
    Posted March 5th, 2014 at 9:15 am 20 Comments
    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...

    Results from the latest poll have further cemented the findings of the previous one - baseball gaming fans have largely moved on to the PlayStation 4 and will be waiting for that version of MLB 14: The Show to arrive. Respondents, of which there were over 3800, heavily favored the technical improvements coming with the new system over features that would appear to have bigger impact including Online Franchise and save migration. 52% chose the PS4's improved graphics and other aspects such...

    Posted February 26th, 2014 at 8:45 am 16 Comments
    Though they may not immediately stand out as the most exciting features of MLB 14: The Show, Quick Counts and Player Lock will provide an opportunity to complete games much faster than playing the traditional way. Baseball has always been hamstrung by the length of games and time investment required - especially for those who want to complete full seasons in Franchise mode. A new video today goes further into detail on the two new features.  (more…)...

    Posted February 21st, 2014 at 8:30 am No Comments
    What had become apparent in the time leading up to the announcement was recently confirmed by SCEA - the release of MLB 14: The Show would be pushed back to April 1 for the PS3 and Vita while the PS4 would have to wait until sometime in May. What that does is create a confusion situation for consumers who will now have to consider factors like time, quality, and money in selecting what versions of the game they will buy. The poll posted earlier this week demonstrated just that when exami...
