MLB 09: The Show Steps To The Plate
New Englanders are digging out from yet another snowstorm and it remains very cold across much of North America, but spring training has already begun, and it's time again to give a nod to the country's national pastime.
MLB 09: The Show is now available in stores nationwide for the PS3, PS2, and PSP, and "with improved franchise and online modes, transitional lighting effects, and customizable fan chants and yells, the series promises to deliver yet another incredible baseball gaming experience to fans everywhere." Last year's installment was amazing and perhaps the best baseball simulator and we expect yet another leap with MLB 09. Said Vice President of Product Marketing at SCEA, Scott Steinberg:
"As the industry leader, we continue to deliver features that consistently set the standard for next-gen sports gaming. With MLB 09 The Show, we are excited to deliver true-to-life gameplay, deeper franchise and season modes, and incredibly realistic detail. We look forward to fans reactions as they participate in this unparalleled baseball video game experience."
You've also got the great "Road to the Show" mode, which any baseball fan can completely lose themselves in for months and months and months. If you pick this one up, you will likely experience the most diverse, in-depth, and vividly realistic depiction of the sport that you've ever seen. In this generation, the technical advantages give developers all kinds of licenses to create and innovate, and we're starting to see that in the sports genre. Move over, Madden, MLB is the new leader!
