Video: MLB 09 The Show's PS3 World Series Prediction Revealed

50°
260w ago - Today Public Relations Manager Alex Armour has shared a PS3 video revealing the MLB 09 The Show's World Series prediction, specifically that the Phillies stun Yankees in 7 games.

To quote: With the World Series starting up tonight, we'd like to peer into the future a bit using the most authentic baseball simulation around, MLB 09 The Show.

Utilizing the Artificial Intelligence (AI) in MLB 09 The Show, we simulated the 2009 World Series and the results were very interesting - especially if you're from Pennsylvania. Here's a look at the video highlights...





The series was full of ups and downs as the both clubs clawed it out to the very last pitch. The Phillies took an early 3-1 lead behind the strong pitching of Cliff Lee, but the Yanks came right back with clutch hitting by A-Rod, Jeter and Teixeira to push the series to a decisive Game 7.

With the World Championship hanging in the balance, Chase Utley would become Philadelphia's savior hammering a three-run homerun in the top of the 8th inning to seal an improbable 8-2 victory against the favored New York Yankees.

Here are some of the final stats...

Final Scores:

• Game 1: Phillies, 12-3
• Game 2: Yankees, 5-4 (10...
 

PlayStation at the MLB All-Star Game Details Are Available

276w ago - Sony's Social Media Manager Jeff Rubenstein has shared details today of PlayStation at the MLB All-Star Game.

To quote: Here's the cool part of making the best baseball game out there: You're invited to the [Register or Login to view links], and all the related festivities.

Just in my day or so here in Missouri, it's very clear that St. Louis is a Baseball Town; everyone's decked out in [Register or Login to view links], and fans are flooding the All-Star events such as FanFest, where you can find PlayStation on full display.

We've got dozens of hi-def Bravia stations for players to go one-on-one with each other in MLB 09: The Show (oftentimes for prizes), but even better, we're putting this Baseball Town's extensive knowledge of the sport to good use.

Around the FanFest area at America's Center, you'll find kiosks set up with Buzz! Quiz TV (near the Chevy, Sharp, and Reebok "bases"). We've set up a special set of baseball quizzes, and the top scores are competing for a PS3 with a copy of MLB 09: The Show. If you're in the area (through Tuesday), I highly recommend that you drop by and take a crack at it (after studying your baseball trivia first, natch).
 

New MLB 09: The Show & Quantum of Solace Blu-ray PS3 Bundle?

50°
280w ago - While the much anticipated price drop announcement never actually came to fruition at this year's E3, PlayStation 3 holdouts still might want to keep watch for a new bundle arriving at their local Walmart sometime this year.

To quote: According to photos (via [Register or Login to view links]) taken by a tipster working at the mega-retailer, you'll soon be able to pick up the 80GB model of the PS3, plus MLB 09 The Show and Quantum of Solace on Blu-ray for just $399.99 - the standard price for the console on its own.

There's no official word on the bundle from Sony at this point, and it's also unclear whether or not it's being planned for multiple retailers or as a Walmart exclusive.

The photos appear legit, though, and let's hope so; Quantum of Solace and MLB 09 would certainly put to shame the Talladega Nights Blu-ray pack-in that early PS3 adopters were subjected to.
