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

1:00 AM on 02.11.2010 // Samit Sarkar

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 not talking about replays). That really took you out of the broadcast-style presentation that The Show is known for.

This year, with MLB 10 The Show, Sony San Diego is rectifying that situation by introducing real-time presentation: every single camera cut you see will happen in real time, so there won't be any cries of, "Hey, I already saw that a second ago!" If I'm not explaining it well enough, watch the trailer above for details. The picture-in-picture shot is what you'll see in the game; the "production fly" camera is there to give you an overall shot of the stadium (in this case, Minneapolis' brand-new Target Field) from behind home plate. The PlayStation.Blog provides some more background information:

Once the ball clears the right field fence and the play ends, the jumbotron flashes “Joe” and the Real Time cameras cut to the dugout (out of fly cam view) as they react to Joe’s solo shot. Next, the Real Time cameras cut to Joe as he nears second base and follow him using different camera angles, as new animations blend to let him round the bases in continuous fashion. One more thing to notice would be the defensive players maneuvering into an extreme right shift in preparation for the next batter, Jim Thome.

It may sound inconsequential, but it's this kind of attention to detail that helps The Show stand head and shoulders above all baseball games before it. I can't wait to check out the full game in a few weeks: it's due out on March 2nd for PS3, PSP, and PS2.

Sonic Lost World is coming to PC on November 2nd for $25! I may double dip, hopefully they'll make the final boss less rage-inducing. Ah well, I can always grind for extra lives lol.

Went to play MGSV, got prompted to download the MGO data; it's not on the PS Store yet. Or maybe it's Kojima-san's way of telling me it's not the real MGO data, but is instead a janitor who once protected me from a puddle of pee and now wears my face.

Recently watched the Cannon Films documentary, by the director of Not Quite Hollywood. Super entertaining, hilarious, and it almost made me want to watch some of the Cannon films. Almost.

Tip for those who have plasma TVs and are playing MGSV; go into settings and make the weapon icon only appears when you're aiming. I had to buy a new TV because the weapon icon got permanently burned into my plasma.

I was excited to learn one of my favorite Philip K. Dick novels, The Man in the High Castle, would be receiving its own TV show. After watching the pilot, I'm cautiously optimistic. Looking forward to the rest in November.

I'm going to be honest; this is my new favourite line in anything ever. GOTY 2015 and all that. Also cocks: [img][/img]
I thought Laura Kate's Destiny piece for Polygon was pretty neat.

Bungie have decided Kojima isn't the only one who can do 4th wall breaking shenanigans. Congratulations Destiny players, you're all now The Taken King.
I have (jokingly) wanted a remake/sequel to Geist. And then I went to YouTube to watch a longplay to see it in action again and thought, "nevermind!"
