MLB 14 The Show: Cover athlete, first PS4 footage teased


8:10 PM on 11.04.2013



Your new MLB The Show cover athlete is in -- it's Tigers third baseman Miguel Cabrera. I didn't vote for him, but he's my cover athlete. Cabrera was revealed this evening on MLB Network at the Player's Choice Awards. Players selected the new cover athlete as well, for the first time.

We also got a tease of MLB 14 The Show running on PS4 for the first time, as Shown above. You can also check out some comparison screenshots here. The game will also come out for PS3 and PlayStation Vita next year.

MLB 13 The Show was as good as the series has consistently been in recent years. In fact, with the excellently tuned hitting, it's probably the best entry. Still, like most sports games, the series has shown its age on these waning consoles, likely exacerbated by the yearly release cycle. That's why I'm excited to see what Sony San Diego does with the PS4.

Even the small things like going from 42 crowd models to over 1,000 sounds like cool touches. And let's not forget over 40,000 individual strands of hair. C'mon, you know that does something for you. Jayson Werth looks like Max Payne.

Review: MLB 14 The Show

I was ready for last year’s The Show to be its PS3 swansong, I was feeling it. It’s not that it wasn’t good. It was as good as it ever was. But there were signs of age. The same old horrifying fan models in ...more

MLB 14 attempts to fix what bugs you in Road to the Show

Attempt. It probably won't. But good on them for trying when it's the only baseball game worth buying anyway and they don't have to do much to maintain its goodness. And I'm sure plenty time is being spent on the PS4 version...more

If you want to be able to breeze through games more quickly, MLB 14: The Show has two new options. Quick Count starts off every at bat in an advanced count (3-0, 1-2, etc.), partly based on the pitcher/batter matchup. Not a ...more

MLB 14 The Show gets a big visual boost from PS4 power

We had a chance to take a peek at the PS4 version of MLB 14 The Show this past week at a preview event, and it was clear from the get go that the game benefits greatly from the power that the PS4 provides. Now, it's not like ...more

Review: Kinect Sports Rivals

The original Kinect Sports for the Xbox 360 did exactly what it set out to to do. It didn't set the world on fire or reinvent gaming as we know it, but it showed that despite some gimmicky features, the Kinect actually w...more

Review: Rusty's Real Deal Baseball

During the first hour of Rusty's Real Deal Baseball I babysat one of the titular character's 10 kids, played a 4DS, and fed him donuts while I listened to his marital problems. I'm glad Nintendo decided to make this game.more

Rusty's Real Deal Baseball, one of the most absurd games I've seen from Nintendo in years, is coming to the 3DS on April 3rd. This is Nintendo's second free-to-play endeavor on the 3DS after Steel Diver: Sub Wars, and feature...more
