205w ago - SCEA PR Manager Eric Levine has unveiled the MLB 10 The Show PS3 box art, and confirmed that it will be hitting stores on March 2, 2010.
To quote: Happy New Year Baseball Fans and Welcome to The Show!
We're less than two months away from Spring Training and the MLB off season news is making some big waves–Randy Johnson called it quits, Andre Dawson is headed to Cooperstown, and Matt Holliday is getting paid.
More importantly though, I'm happy to give you the exclusive look at the brand new MLB 10 The Show box art featuring our own PlayStation Hall of Famer, Joe Mauer. For those of you looking to get your work in on the virtual diamond before Opening Day, MLB 10 The Show will officially hit store shelves on MARCH 2!
So far we've been getting a great response from media who have played MLB 10. ESPN recently called The Show "A franchise that simply captures the sport of baseball better than any other, past or present."
I also thought this would be a good opportunity to highlight some...
208w ago - SCEA PR Manager Eric Levine has announced today that MLB 10 The Show for PS3 has named Joe Mauer as their cover athelete.
To quote: It may be December, but the MLB off season is beginning to heat up. Roy Halladay to the Phillies, Cliff Lee to Mariners, and John Lackey to the Red Sox has made for quite a week.
However, I'm proud to report that the biggest news to come out during the current winter meetings is not from an All-Star hurler changing addresses, but from the industry's #1 baseball franchise, MLB The Show. It is my pleasure to announce that the recently crowned 2009 American League Most Valuable Player and catcher for the Minnesota Twins, Joe Mauer will be the cover athlete for the latest installment of the series, MLB 10 The Show!
We're absolutely thrilled to partner with a player of Joe's caliber– a true professional on and off the field. Just to give you all a sense of how good this guy is here are some credentials–2-time...
215w 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...
• Game 1: Phillies, 12-3
• Game 2: Yankees, 5-4 (10...
235w 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 Joystiq) 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.
