    MLB The Show '09 - True 1080p60 on the PlayStation 3 Console

    Sponsored Links
    The biggest improvement to the game comes from MLB 09's native 1080p support. The game runs at an uncompromised 19201080 native resolution with no AA.

    In this respect, it's identical to the '08 game, but the key difference is that unlike the last game, MLB '09 displays a full 60 frames per second on the 1080p setting vs the 30fps of its predecessor.

    The '08 1080p mode had few other losses on visual effects such as depth of field, which is retained and improved in both 720p and 1080p modes on the new game.





    To quote: First of all, MLB The Show '09 is running at 60 frames per second at native 720p with 2xMSAA, unchanged from its predecessor. The character modeling and the texture details seem more or less on the same level with '08 as well, but close-in some improvements are evident: check out these shots of the players.

    The most significant change however, is the crowd rendering, as it's much more diverse now with visible improvements on the level of detail. This is a great addition to '09, since its predecessor already had some of the best crowd graphics in any sports title, but its one shortcoming was the person duplication which becomes painfully obvious at times.

    The one real irritation with the crowd graphics on MLB '08 concerned alpha-blending issues with the wire net in front of the audience. It wasn't particularly well-done, but again, this has been hugely improved in the new '09 version. This sort of thing is difficult to show in an internet video, but we've had a stab any way via the wonder of YouTube HD. (video above)

    Additionally, MLB 09's 1080p has full screen blur effect as well. The blur is usually bad when it's used as poor man's AA solution, but in a sports game that runs at true 1080p, it actually gives you a wonderful feel of realism. It really adds to the atmosphere and the game looks much more life-like than it does on 720p.

    Overall, MLB The Show '09 has seen a great improvement over last year, which is particularly impressive considering how the first game was already the best looking baseball title out there, maybe even the best looking sports release ever. With this new edition, the best just got even better.
