    This week of promotion for MLB The Show 20 centered on the new (Online) Custom Leagues mode. While it appears to be intended as a substitute for Online Franchise it isn't remotely a feature-for-feature replacement and there are still unanswered questions - even after multiple teases a blog and a full stream - that will heavily impact how widely adapted and ultimately how successful it may become. Its simplicity could prove to be a draw for some but the lack of depth and possible exclusion of...

    The developer stream for MLB The Show 20 centered on Road to the Show and Franchise Mode was held yesterday putting on display the new additions and improvements. The RTTS enhancements look to be intriguing as relationships with teammates now play a role, immediate upgrades to ratings, and new in-game challenges that influence the outcome of games. Unfortunately it's shaping up to be another disappointing year for Franchise Mode. Limited rebranding rather than the "relocation" being adver...

    For the first time actual minor leaguers will be represented in a console video game. MLB The Show 20 will introduce "full minor league rosters" although the extent to what that means remains unclear despite a brief trailer that reveals the addition. Until now players could not appear in the game until they became part of the MLBPA which follows having made a single appearance in a Major League game. Only on rare occasions was a player targeted for their rights prior to that occurring. Sh...
