    I'll be getting the MVP edition as usual. Will be getting it on March 23. CAN'T WAIT!

    Yep I'll go into work tomorrow and put in my vacation request for March 26th thru 30th.
    :)
    So ordering from Best Buy or Amazon means release day is March 27? Damn, I really have to consider this since I get 20% off. Getting it 4 days early + 5 additional packs for preordering at GameStop vs saving $12 using Best Buy GCU or Amazon Prime discount for standard edition.

    I thought about it as well, but the problem is I'm weak and have no self control...:lol:
    So, I'll continue to hold out hope that this offer extends to Best Buy, but if not, I'll get it from GameStop.

    Taking a little Showcation I see. I do the same thing. I usually take time off in February and March for Spring Training and the start of the season.

    I hope so as well, but I doubt it since GameStop seems to have a great relationship with SDS (or is paying SDS enough money for the exclusives) to be the only retailer to sell the Hall of Fame Edition last year and now the All Rise Edition. I might just get it at GameStop.

    Normally I take off the first two days of March Madness (Thursday/Friday) and then take off the week of the Show's release.

    I'll buy at Gamestop. Will be the first thing I've bought from there in quite sometime. :)
    for me to buy this game this year there going to have to do an awful lot and i mean an awful lot. all these different versions, play the game early, blah blah blah... all i see in video gaming is money grab now.Stuff that shoulda been in-game previous, is held back for a new coat of paint on the new game, its not just this game, its all games thats coming out. one company said heyyyyy lets give incentive to release the game early ( they'll buyyyy it for sure) now every company follows suit. the request we ask for hardly ever make it in the game, or its also held up with some kind of rule or regulation, or license problem, its always something... it aint np though me handing over my money though... i said i wasn't buying any more titles unless i see true innovation and i mean it...tired of giving my money to half sliced pie! yep i said it... dont be fooled...
    To be honest I will need to see if the fields, players, and graphics have improved at all before I drop another 80 or 100 or whatever it is. If this still looks like a stale game there is no way they are getting my money.
    The colors in this game are in need of a big overhaul if you ask me. I am hoping HDR has lent them some inspiration to get a more realistic look.
    Pre-Order online and Digital Deluxe I didn't even really play 17 at all. will make up for that this winter going into 18. I may play only Offline franchise, however, i do need cards to sell to help me get some capital for my upcoming franchise. Now the only question will be what team to play as and to go default rosters, or OSFM. Then to go Fantasy draft or real-life team...
    time to start saving up for it
    Can't wait for this game. I don't need any fancy versions or special "editions." I don't play online or play any in-game games. I don't even know what those packs are for or what they do.
    I just do a fantasy draft and play for a couple months to get used to the game. Once OS drops their roster, I plug it in and play a couple full seasons (all games) until the season ends. After the season, I upload the end of season or post trade deadline version and play a full season during the off season.
    I love this game as is. I don't need any special edition or chasers. Can't wait to give them my money again in March.

    Please SDS, let the MVP Edition be pre-ordered/sold at Best Buy. Don't make me go to the darkside. :(
    :cool:

    I don't see why it wouldn't be, I got the MVP Edition from Best Buy for this year's game. Reading the article, it sounds like early access is only from Gamestop if you don't get it digitally.

    Oops I was confused.
    I thought you had to pre-order the MVP edition or up to get the game 4 days early and that it was only available at Gamestop or via PS Store.
    After re-reading, it appears that you can pre-order any version at Gamestop or the PS Store and get it 4 days early.
    Either way, I'm pre-ordering at Gamestop I guess and I'll most likely get the MVP Edition because I want the classic stadium.
    It's about time, for SDS to take off the training wheels and introduce tunning/updates to this title. Madden and NBA 2k have tunning updates(5 years running) without patches that improves gameplay, it is time SDS get on the tunning bandwagon.
    I’m hoping retro mode is back in and wishful thinking(doubtful) is that you can play a season in it.

    It sounds like from the MVP Edition on up, there will be a new classic stadium.

    Not necessarily, doesn't it just mean that you will get a classic stadium card so you can use it in DD. There could be new classics but thats not what that means

    When is this available for pre-order?
    GS or BB doesnt have it listed on their sites.

    my local Gamestop has it available for pre-order. This was in store.
    Its now available on Gamestop's website for pre-order.

    Agree 100%. This series is stale stale stale. Presentation, at least, needs a desperate overhaul. Gameplay to me is about spot on every year, and the tweaks they do help. Presentation, overall animations, models, game modes. All of those need some love.
    Ah yes, The hype train is in full swing .....again! I am getting old and wiser in my years and see that SDS is targeting the weak minded with these exclusive only pre-order releases of MLBTS. Yes I agree, No, not falling for it this time. I will wait and see what they have to offer first. I want to see if they have improved in gameplay, franchise and career mode but will prob wait some more until this game is on sale down the road.

    Yeah I think your right.
    Guess I'm back to the Standard Edition until further notice. :google:
    This years is not high on my list of priorities yet. I will wait for the CountryBoy stamp of approval before I buy this years game. Even then I may wait for the price drop and a few patches.
    I just watched SCEA's last Twitch stream of the year...
    Only way to get the game early is GS or PS Store... Really sucks for us GCUer's.
    They said we'll find out about features, what's been added, etc for 18 after the New Year... Also said they have some surprises and things we didn't except from them.

    Buy from GameStop early. Then buy from best buy on release day. Return copy from Best Buy to GameStop and get money back.
    That's my plan :skillz:

    Why did you have to post that? Why why why?
    I will watch. But still won’t get this game on release. I can wait for a while this time around. That's the plan. But I would love to see some real innovation in franchise mode, presentation and gameplay again. If that happens.....I will will get it sooner rather than later (late summer perhaps for a much lower price).
    Wait and see.

    You have to be crazy to pre order this game.   There’s always something wrong with it for the 1st month. Hopefully it goes well this year but I doubt it.
    I might be in the same boat as some of you guys in waiting to see how it is. I just got promoted to a salaried position, so I'll be working and seeing so much more baseball than I have previously.
    I also made a decision to get better at guitar since I moved to Nashville. A lot of my time is spent practicing and listening to Sturgill, Jason Isbell, and other similar artists on top of the bands I already liked. I have less free time these days, so I want to try and be more productive.

    I guess I'm crazy...:y220d:...because I have already pre-ordered.
    If you are for certain going to purchase the game (before the All-Star Break price cut), you might as well pre-order and get some extras/bonuses.
    I know it's the one game I purchase every year, and play the most even with my limited gaming time. It's easily MY best value in games. I'm a baseball nut though! My initials are even MLB, lol.

    I never buy the Show until they reveal that killer feature that I absolutely need. It's just that for the past 4 years, each version has had something I felt I absolutely needed.
    14: Year to year saves (IMHO best feature ever in a sports game, still rockin the Jays franchise I started in 14) plus the Show on PS4
    15: Dynamic outfielder paths (was getting really frustrated with the CPU catching every single ball they possibly could)
    16: Closed roof stadiums, first implementation of human IK
    17: New ball physics (hopefully just the first attempt that will be tuned and expanded on), quick manage (love it for my minor leagues), PBR, expanded Human IK implementation.
    So yeah, I have no plans to purchase the Show this year yet, but they've been on such a hot streak for me that I'm excited for the feature reveals. In the (unlikely) event that 18 doesn't have enough to get me on board, I'll just wait for a sale to continue my carry over. Either way just standard edition for me. Nothing but franchise.

    LOL I am in the same boat. I was not buying 17 then the ball physics, 4K support etc etc.....could not pass it.
    I am waiting to see what they have up their sleeve. If they improve upon gameplay for 17 in a meaningful way and enhance franchise and more importantly to me "Franchise Presentation" knowing my love for this game and my eternal love affair with baseball I will cave.

    You sir--are the man. And, for the record, you would be doing us all a disservice by not purchasing '18.
    Glad to see that you've started the 'changing your mind' process. In November.

    The Show was my most anticipated yearly release until 17. If I played a total of 15 games that was a lot. This will be a wait and see year.

    While I won't be in wait and see mode this year, I had a similar experience with '17 as you. But I have faith in this dev team and I liken '17 to being a foul ball. The dev team took a big swing at this year's game trying to knock it out of the park and they hooked it just foul.
    I fully expect the wrinkles that '17 has to be ironed out and '18 to be a phenomenal baseball game.
    It's funny that people complain about Judge being on the cover. It's just a cover versus being a Dodgers' fan and having to be reminded of the Astros winning the WS through audio clips in the menu, in-game, and probably the opening movie. Let's just say that SDS needs to improve the gameplay a lot for me to do a day 1 purchase.

    Yeah. I wouldn't give a flip if there was nobody on the cover. I don't even look at it after I've taken the disk out of the case for the first time.
    Pre-Ordered.
    Might do a classic roster for 18 after doing stuff for Fire Pro Wrestling World instead of doing a roster for 17. My Fire Pro project is pretty much done. I'd still do community work over there, but no content creation.
    Would love to see Options easily editable.

    I didn't like it at first this year, but ended up putting alot of time into the game. I hope that the slo-mo tags are removed and there is a refresh of franchise mode with some legacy issues fixed. I feel that franchise mode has not taken the leap since they first added the rule 5 draft and arbitration all the years ago.
    Since then the trade waivers does not work correctly. A stop gap from that year when the cpu would never pull a player back was to pull everyone back. Injuries late in the season and you go into the postseason with less than a full roster.
    Arbitration numbers are higher than free agent salaries....
    The gm aspects do not seem to have advanced. I'm sure I'll preorder, I always do, but really need to see an advancement to stay engaged in franchise.

    ya i also pre ordered and not sure how to get the judge card.
    Edit: Alright i figured it out. to receive the Judge card, just go into My Locker at the main menu then goto Show Shop(bottom middle) then goto Purchase or Redeem. and the judge card pack will appear there for you to redeem.
    I've played 17 so little this year, not because it's bad but because personally life has just limited my gaming time drastically... that I have no real reason to buy the Show 18 in the sense that I can easily pick up show 17 and play that. So with that said, what will make me get show 18? Hate to become that guy but I've become that guy... it's gonna be about the colors in the game. If they haven't fixed all the off colors like the faded black and the maroon red Nationals and the baby blue Brewers throwbacks then I'll probably skip 18 as that's the only improvement that will make me say "yes I must have this game over the show 17."

    im sure they have learned a lot from that. now obviously we have heard Russell said before '17 launched that after '16 they were confident about the '17 launch. but hopefully this time it holds true.

    Yeah hopefully. I wonder if that has anything to do with the early access this year. Try and split up that initial load on the servers. They must be pretty confident to offer that because people will be PISSED if they spend the money for early access and online doesn’t work.

    Yep all good!
    Can anyone please provide a link from GameStop that confirms the early release date. I stopped by a local GS and the person could not confirm an early date for The Show 18.
    I checked the GS website and did not see the the option of early release for Pre-Order.

    I so want to be playing this March 23rd. Would be a wonderful weekend.
    I'm so happy they added Best Buy for the early access. I wanted to play early, but didn't want to pay extra to buy it at Gamestop. I just preordered the MVP edition.

    what does it mean ''1 classis stadium''?>

    Given the context of most of those other DLC items, I'm sure it means a classic stadium card in DD (to be able to use that park as your DD team's Home).
    All of the classic stadiums should be accessible for offline play now, since they were last year.

    Was just on the PSN store and it says get early access to the full game on March 23rd @ 12AM but then right underneath that it says play on 3/27/18 12AM eastern time. So does anyone know which one is right for just the standard edition?
    Just received confirmation from the development team through their facebook page that standard addition will get early access if you pre-order

    so have we got till March to pre order before early access deal goes away?? I the show is about the only game I actually pre order these days but pre ordering a game 2 months earlier and having to pay for it full price I don't really like doing a few weeks before release is better
    It's weird. I went and pre ordered today from my local Gamestop and the cashier told me March 27th. I told him the Gamestop website and The Show nation website say First pitch weekend and the date is March 23rd. Guy said their system probably hasn't been updated yet. Hopefully I don't have any issues on the 23rd. Anyone else come across this at gamestop or anywhere else?

    Yeah that is weird.
    My guess is they only updated the standard edition on their site, but the MVP will be released on the 23rd as well. Can't imagine any reason it wouldn't be.
    Sorry, but i can not seem to find any news about 18.
    Last year they had livestreams to showcase new features and stuff.
    Does anybody know anything about new features etc.?
    Thank you
    Not reading this entire thread so please forgive me, but I've never bought none of the advanced versions before, can someone please explain what this whole steel book is?

    Please SDS, let the MVP Edition be pre-ordered/sold at Best Buy. Don't make me go to the darkside. :(
    :cool:

    There's zip that would make me buy from Gamestop...period.
    I have mine pre-ordered at Best Buy so it's all good.
    Also now off the 23rd through the 27th.. :)

    The steel book is literally a metal packaging that the game comes in. It looks beautiful and is cool to have in your collection as a display piece but it's just the packaging and doesn't change the actual game one bit. What that is worth to each person varies with personal opinion.

    Well for 1 I can get game 20% cheaper at BB and 2.. They have had some serious shady practices in the past.
    Example:
    When Xenoblades chronicles got re-released for the WII (It was a top seller) at $19.99 they opened all copies and put on shelf as used.
    Then put a 79.99 used price tag on them.. since used games they dictate what the game sells for.
    That seriously rubbed me the wrong way... So I just don't do business with them.
    I’m confused about the 1 classic stadium content you get from the mvp version on up, is it a new classic stadium you get for the general game or is it a goofy card for diamond dynasty? If it’s a card then I could care a less and just get the standard version since all I play is franchise anyway.

    Pretty sure it's just a card for DD. Offline modes should have all the classic stadiums unlocked from the beginning.
    I will be getting the All Rise Edition with the hat, this year. I will also take work off not only because of the game its falls on the week of Easter this year. I am off for vacation from 3-24 to 4-1 this year.
    I've browsed this thread and haven't found an answer. Did GameStop do an early release last year? How did that work?
    Went and pre-ordered and the lady just kept repeating March 27th, March 27th, March 27th. Had no clue about the "early release" and thought it would be a 9PM or midnight release if anything (laughable).
    Any info appreciated. I would just PS Store it but my HD is getting rather full.

    I got my copy from a mom and pop store last year but IIRC Gamestop started selling The Show at 9pm one day early. Not all stores knew about that in advance either.
