RBI Baseball 14 Releasing This Week for $20 on Last-Gen Consoles and $5 Mobile

RBI Baseball 14 will release as a digital download on PSN for PS3 and XBLA for Xbox 360 on Wednesday. Xbox One, PS4, and Android versions are expected to arrive in May. MLB Advanced Media has treated RBI 14 very much like they would any mobile game by not offering much in the way of details or media prior to release and the lack of it resulted in the complete dissipation of the hype from when it was initially announced in January.

As far as the price goes the Xbox 360 and PS3 digital downloads will be $20 and the mobile version will be offered for $5. Those are both outrageously high. The consoles are getting a port of a mobile game that doesn’t even have online play while there are several good options for baseball games on mobile that have not only been around and proven themselves over time but are free. It’s a good example though of the regard in which MLB places on the value of its license which has prevented EA Sports and others from developing another game.
