MLB 14 The Show News Post


While we wait on official word for the MLB 14 The Show release date, one has to wonder if the PS3 and PS4 versions will ship on the same day or not.

Looking back at MLB 07 The Show, the PS2 version shipped on February 26th, while the PS3 version didn't ship until May 15th.

I sent a note to Russell, but I'm not sure if he is allowed to elaborate on it. But he did have this to say yesterday.

Quote:
There's no conspiracy or grand design, everything is going according to our schedule for this year. There won't be any less information about the game than there was last year. The schedule is different this year that's all, nothing more nothing less.

Either way, it's fun to speculate, since we haven't seen anything new recently. Last year, we received the fact sheet on January 14th. We also saw some gameplay from CES last year at around this time, but it wasn't on display this year. Just taking a peek at our MLB 13 The Show page, we saw a few Developer Journals with hands-on impressions at the end of January.

Let's hope we see or hear something soon.

I am expecting different release dates for the ps3 and ps4. That is just me though!

Nothing we can do about ps4 possibly being released at a later date. Especially if it was like a month or two later. But if so that would really just suck :/

I'm fairly certain every one here already expects different release dates for the ps3 and ps4 versions

Yeah but I'd rather have the release dates be like maybe 2 weeks apart at most. When it gets to like a month/2 months I'm between, then it's a little annoying and aggravating haha.

Sure, but are they expecting almost 3 months in between, like 07? It's something to think about.

I was thinking regular release for PS3, early March. But for PS4, I was thinking a little after opening day.

Yea, if it's going to be a drastic difference, hopefully they do an upgrade program like other games have done. I wouldn't want to wait until May to play the show when I could just start in March and upgrade once the PS4 version was released. As much as I love this game and want to support San Diego Studios, I don't want to purchase this game twice in full. Although, I probably would if I had to...

Yeah I was thinking along these lines too.

I hope its not 3 months in between releases, (talk about major disappointment if so.) but if I had to take a guess I would say probably the ps4 would release a month later.

I have to put in the disclaimer...since most people know I have more info than "normal" from SCEA most times.....so...

Without knowing any specifics
.....I would expect a later release of the PS4 version. One full cycle on a game that's already being made for years on the other console isn't even truly enough for the team.

I don't think it will be two or three months.
I CERTAINLY hope not!

Personally I would like to have it in March like everyone else but having said that the extra month (s ) wait would be well worth it having the next gen version with all the bell and whistles.
 
# 11 Yanks22 @ 01/23/14 02:03 PM
If a ps4 version release was more then 1 month, then that would be a major disappointment.

Im not sure if this thread is going to calm the release date jitters or make matters worse.

Lets hope this thread is a dose of cyber Prozac for all those that seem to need it.

Although, if it is indeed a later date than the PS3 version, I hope they throw us a bone and give us a demo like 4/5 weeks in advance.
Oh come on. If a game you've already paid for say didn't come out until may/June but it's out on a different system in March/April it wouldn't matter to you? Be realistic haha.

Look, if the game didn't come out until, let's say June, would I be irritated?? Sure, but that's not enough to say 'screw this, I'm outta here'. I love this game THAT much.

In fact, my love for this game is unhealthy.
I'm not saying that I'm gonna abandon the game, that will never happen. I'm just saying the aggravation would grow the longer the wait.

Most sensible people would ratehr wait until they get the first one on a new gen right instead of rushing it, then you would be crying about that.

Plenty of others?? Sure. Sony won't miss you as ps4 keeps rolling over x1 in sales.
That's what happens when SCEA gives an inch and people want a mile and don't get their way they just complain like that is really going to matter. He's no exception he's been complaining in a few threads and over at pastapadre too.
