MLB 11 'Yankee Killer' trailer has revisionist history

Sony has just released a new trailer for MLB 11 The Show, and this one features Minnesota Twins catcher Joe Mauer, who is on the cover of the game for the second year in a row. I wasn't aware that Mauer's performance against...

Review: MLB 10 The Show
by Samit Sarkar

Simulation sports games have a doubly difficult job: not only are they tasked with delivering a realistic playable version of a particular sport, but they also must present an experience that looks and sounds like a television broadcast of that sport. Sony’s MLB The Show series has excelled in both areas for years. But because sports games come out on an annual basis, consumers demand even more -- each new iteration must be markedly different from, and better than, its predecessors.

How much innovation does MLB 10 The Show bring to baseball games? What does it improve upon from MLB 09? The answers to these questions, and more, are after the jump.

Sony shows off MLB 10 The Show's real-time presentation

MLB 09 The Show was a fantastic game, but as with most great games, there were some small nagging issues that annoyed me. One of them was a presentation thing: you'd often see multiple cuts of the same in-game event (and I'm...

Thanks to two straight stellar games, the MLB The Show series has cemented itself as the best baseball simulation available by far. MLB 09 The Show managed to sell 305,000 copies in March 2009 on the PS3, coming in at #6 on the month’s NPD list, even though the game wasn’t available on any other platform. That’s the surest sign of all that developer Sony San Diego is doing something right, and the studio hopes to continue that success with MLB 10 The Show, due out next March.

Sony showed the game to the press for the first time at an event in New York City last week. I played a game in the beautifully rendered new Yankee Stadium against Eric Levine, Product PR Manager at Sony, who chose the Philadelphia Phillies. Hit the jump for the skinny on what’s new in MLB 10 The Show, as well as the problems from years past that it addresses -- including one of my biggest pet peeves.
