  • Smart Design Decisions Overshadowed by Reliability Concerns in Early MLB 14: The Show Online Franchise Mode Testing

    While SCEA revealed some of the framework to Online Franchise for MLB 14: The Show the company never explained the actual logistics of the mode. Baseball inherently presents challenges like the length of the season and time requirement to play games which necessitates chunks of them being open on the schedule for example - but then how are rotations, injuries, and fatigue handled when not playing games in any specific order? Server issues, the need to actually play some of the games to de...

    SCEA made two time-saving features the most marketed additions for MLB 14: The Show. There is no doubt that the length of time it takes to play games has limited baseball's potential video game consumer base and even hampered the ability for the most dedicated fans to play to the extent they would like. Of the two options developed for MLB 14 at least one is proving to be a worthwhile option to consider.  (more…)...
  • First Roster Update for MLB 14: The Show Won’t Be Out Until April 8

    MLB 14: The Show released on PS3 and Vita today but the wait will continue one week until new rosters are provided. For the time being the rosters included in the game do not represent any transactions that took place after mid-February. Unfortunately that means consumers may feel the need to wait until April 8 before starting up Franchise, Road to the Show, or Season mode. The first roster update will include signings, player movement, and injuries that have occurred since mid-February ...

    To coincide with the release of MLB 14: The Show on PS3 and Vita tomorrow SCEA has pushed out a new video that goes over 30 features that might not be known about the game. Many of them will be familiar to those who have followed information on this year's edition but there are others which haven't received the same level of attention mixed in. Keep in mind that all of these features - even though most of the footage used is PS3 - will apply to the PS4 version which is now five weeks away fr...
  • Press Row Hangout Clip – On The Eve of MLB 14: The Show’s First Releases

    With MLB 14: The Show arriving on Tuesday for the PS3 and Vita this extended segment from the latest Press Row Hangout includes some of the hottest topics related to the game as it heads into its release. The decision not to release a demo on the PS3, the lack of any "trade-up" promotion for those with both the PS3 and PS4, and initial assessments of the Quick Counts feature after seeing it in action are all discussed.

  • MLB 14: The Show PS3 Gameplay Video Featuring Quick Counts

    Posted March 27th, 2014 at 10:15 am 12 Comments »
    Earlier this week the top rated players for MLB 14: The Show were revealed thanks to a consumer with hands on an early PS3 copy. Now the first extended gameplay can be watched and it utilizes the optional new Quick Counts feature that generates them rather than starting with a fresh slate. In theory that will lead to more realistic walk and strikeout numbers and at the same time reduce the length of time it takes to play games. The video features Cardinals at Red Sox for a single inning t...
  • Top Rated Players in MLB 14: The Show

    While SCEA has generally not released player ratings as a form of promoting The Show consumers who have gotten their hands on the game early have gone about exposing the ratings instead. That's happened again this year as a member of Operation Sports has provided screenshots of the top rated players at each position for MLB 14: The Show. Last year MLB 13 featured 17 players rated 99 overall - which was actually down from an absurd 44 with MLB 12 - and 99 total players coming in 90 or high...
  • No PS3 Demo for MLB 14: The Show

    With release of MLB 14: The Show on PS3 and Vita just a week away it's now been confirmed that there will be no pre-release demo. The news should come as no surprise given SCEA's recent track record with the series however circumstances that are far different than a typical year could have changed that.  (more…)...

    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...
  • Time Running Short to Announce Trade-Up Program for MLB 14: The Show

    Posted March 21st, 2014 at 1:15 pm 11 Comments »
    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...
