201w ago - SCEA PR Manager Eric Levine has revealed alongside a video that MLB 10 The Show is pitching in to support Cancer research through Stand Up To Cancer.

To quote: As we approach the MLB All-Star break, I'd like to tell you all about an important partnership that SCEA is involved in this summer.

We are teaming up with Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) and Major League Baseball (MLB) to aid in the fight against cancer.

Beginning June 13 through July 10, for every copy of MLB 10 The Show purchased for PS3 in US retail stores, SCEA will donate $10 of its proceeds to SU2C to fuel research centered on getting new treatments to patients quickly and saving lives.

With Father's Day approaching in just over a week, MLB 10 The Show provides the perfect gift for the baseball fanatic dad in your family.

Not only will fans get the most authentic and realistic sports game around, but it will also allow them to join the ever-growing SU2C community to raise awareness and support for cancer research.

203w ago - Another PlayStation 3 bundle has surfaced, this time being an MLB 10 Limited Edition PS3 Slim 250GB bundle uncovered by JoyStiq at Target.

The bundle price is $349.99 and currently the status is pre-order, with shipping available in 2-4 weeks.

Recently, another piece of evidence surfaced which adds further credibility to the story: Target's online store recently added the MLB 10 bundle to its virtual shelves.

The online listing is scant on details - it only mentions that the bundle comes with the console and a copy of the game. The tipster from two weeks ago reported a release date of June 13, and a price of $349.99 for the package."
 

Video: Sony Unveils MLB 10 The Show PS3 AL East Predictions

206w ago - Today Sony PR Manager Eric Levine has unveiled the last in their video series of divisional predictions for MLB 10 The Show on the PS3 entertainment system.

To quote: Last up on our divisional predictions series is the American League East.

Here's a stat for you, the AL East has sent a team to the World Series in nine out of the past 12 seasons, pretty ridiculous! It's no surprise that the Yanks are the obvious favorite.

With all of their A-listers back along with the additions of Curtis Granderson and Nick Johnson, the defending champs will once again be the team to beat.

The Red Sox have finished in second place 10 out of the last 12 seasons, but are hoping to change that in '10. With newcomers like Adrian Beltre added to their core group of All-Stars, they're looking for their third title in 7 years.

207w ago - SCEA PR Manager Eric Levine has detailed their MLB 10 The Show PS3 NL East predictions today alongside a video, as follows:

Next up on our divisional predictions series is the National League East.

The Phillies might be the best team in the NL, if not all of baseball, and are the clear front runner.

The fact that they added an all-world pitcher in Roy Halladay to a World Series squad will make it tough for them not to grab their fourth straight divisional crown. The Marlins always seem to have a good core of young players and with guys like Dan Uggla and Hanley Ramirez, this year is no different so expect them to contend.

The Braves have the clear cut Rookie of the Year in Jason Heyward, but we'll see if this mix of young talent and their usual veterans...
