MLB 10 The Show classic stadiums are pre-order bonus DLC

8:20 AM on 01.26.2010 // Samit Sarkar

In my December preview of MLB 10 The Show, I mentioned that the game will include a number of classic stadiums that are new to the MLB The Show franchise, such as the Polo Grounds and Forbes Field. The fact sheet for the game mentioned these old ballparks as being part of the game -- but unfortunately, that’s only technically true. Yesterday, a post on the PlayStation.Blog explained that the PS3 version of MLB 10 will offer a total of six classic stadiums (check out screenshots of them in the gallery):

  • Shibe Park (Philadelphia Athletics/Phillies and others, 1909-1970)
  • Forbes Field (Pittsburgh Pirates and others, 1909-1970)
  • Polo Grounds (New York Giants and others, 1890-1964)
  • Crosley Field (Cincinnati Reds and others, 1912-1970)
  • Sportsman’s Park (St. Louis Browns/Cardinals and others, 1902-1966)
  • Griffith Stadium (Washington Senators and others, 1911-1961)

The six sports venues will be on the MLB 10 game disc. If you pre-order the game at GameStop, Amazon, Best Buy, Wal-Mart,, or J&R, you’ll get a free voucher with an unlock code for the stadiums. According to a reply from SCEA to a comment on the PS.Blog post, you will also be able to unlock the stadiums yourself -- but you’ll have to achieve a Platinum Trophy in the game (that is, earn all of the game’s Trophies) in order to do so. (The MLB The Show games have been criticized in the past for their notoriously difficult-to-obtain Trophies.)

As someone who has no Platinum Trophies and rarely pre-orders games, I found this rather disconcerting. I contacted Sony San Diego to ask if there will be any other way to access these stadiums, and a PR rep told me that he believes that they “will be available for DLC at some point.” However, he could not confirm a release window at this time, so I’m left with the assumption that even if the stadium six-pack does eventually pop up on the PlayStation Store (whether for free or for purchase), it won’t be until some time has passed after MLB 10’s March 2nd release date.

So as it stands, your best bet is to pre-order MLB 10 if you want to play in the six ballparks listed above. It’s a safe move, though -- the last two games, especially MLB 09, have been superb. “Always Buy The Show” indeed, eh?

Please spare me from issues in the process of publishing my blog! Especially since I modified CSS to unnecessarily pseudo-crop an image, and make it so some images float next to text, and make it look decent on mobile. I'm a frickin' nerd, love it.

The night brims with defiled scum, and is permeated by their rotten stench. Just think, now you're all set to hunt and kill to your heart's content! #FashionBorne [img][/img]

I would really, really love if "publish now" could work without me having to post a blog multiple because the site is such a mess right now.

I got it all the way back in spring, but I still haven't finished Majoras Mask. Think I've done the first temple.. It's hard not knowing where to go. All those linear corridors and objective markers in games has made me dumb and impatient.

A weekend open forum posted every Friday night would be really cool, at least until we get real forums again.

I am relieved to know Creed is a Rocky spin-off and not a feature-length documentary about the band.

Been playing Gears of War 3's campaign on Xbox One. Looks great on there, and Sam's voice actor is Chloe's voice actor in Uncharted 2/3. Hell yeah!

Community Question: With all the controversy surrounding review scores, what do you personally consider a "bad" score versus a "good" score? Is there a game in particular that was panned by critics that you nevertheless enjoyed? Or vice versa?
