Just can't wait to play postseason games at Rogers Center or Miller Park under forced open roof conditions and a freezing 33 degrees !!

Best Buy makes it sound like its a RPG.
What do you take A-Rod and few teammates and walk cross country to each stadium before playing, getting into fights with fans along the way?

There are some screenshots on the best but mlb 13 the show page for the vita. I am not sure if they are new or ones from '12.
 
# 5 GreenGlen @ 12/04/12 12:12 PM
so this the vita preview. By mentioning faster games in play now, that could mean that there will be full presentation in the franchise mode for the vita. Maybe I am reading too much into this.

Thoese screenshots are indeed from MLB 13 The Show Vita version!

I know because I can see MLB 13 Logo in the Yankee Statium screenshot with MVP Cabrera batting.

Nothing about career stats yet?

Cool! I couldn't see it clearly enough on my phone

True online franchise

I was hoping for a MLB today type mode where we could play the games for each day on the real MLB schedule with rosters like nba 2k does. Still time early but here's to hoping
 
# 11 tnixen @ 12/04/12 12:42 PM
I spotted at least 2 differences in these screenshots between MLB 12 and 13 The Show.

Nike logo on the shirt and some kind of Satellite dish in right field both not seen in MLB 12 The Show.

But the grass and dirst looks the same to me. And I thought Irmemeber hearing that the grass and dirst are getting a major upgrade in MLB 13 The Show? Of course these could be very early screenshots.

I really hope the atmosphere of the playoffs in playoff mode is added to franchise.

I want this so bad!!!!

I would just love being able to load up MLB The Show and play todays real match ups with all the same updated rosters game day line ups. And also have the play by play commentary talk about things that have happen in the current real life games

Would be so cool to have this in MLB The Show.

I have a feeling we will get a game mode like MLB Today when MLB The Show is released for PS4.

Nothing new from what was released with the screen shots. Excited to hear more about what these "revamped" modes bring.
 
# 15 addybojangles @ 12/04/12 01:28 PM
Apparently the Vita has "jaw-dropping" graphics on its rear-touch screen. That isn't a screen, but just a touch pad.
 
# 16 Footballforever @ 12/04/12 01:40 PM
Like I stated, I'm so much more interested in the Vita version then the PS3 version!!!
 
# 17 Armor and Sword @ 12/04/12 02:11 PM
I think we all know the game is going to be amazing.

As usual. Love that we can always have faith in a superb baseball game.

Thank the heavens for that.

Surprised no one has mentioned the "new voice in the booth yet".. Thats always a hot topic.
 
# 19 BoSox5 @ 12/04/12 02:50 PM
This game took a big step forward last year in terms of gameplay. It seems they are making presentation and atmosphere a priority this year. These are exactly the big issues I was hoping SCEA would address. It could make for an exciting and complete in-game experience which is ultimately the most important thing to me.
