    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.

    For the third straight year consumers will have the option of buying a combo pack featuring MLB and NBA games. Sony announced today that PS3 versions of MLB 14: The Show and NBA 2K14 are being bundled for $90 to release on April 1. Last year 2K Sports offered a MLB 2K13/NBA 2K13 bundle for $80. The year prior it was MLB 2K12/NBA 2K12 for $70. The cheaper prices with those deals were meant to entice consumers who had an interest in NBA 2K to buy the far less desirable MLB 2K along with it....

    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 ...

    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...

    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...
