MLB 13 The Show: First Trailer

It may only be the first week of January, but to us at San Diego Studios that means we are just two months away from bringing you the latest installment of the number-one selling and rated Major League Baseball video game franchise, MLB 13 The Show. We’ve been hard at work improving the best baseball video game on the market and we want all of you to check out our first trailer. (MLB 13: The Show, PS Vita, PS3)

Yeah, now that 2k baseball is gone there is 0 competition for the Show. Not that 2k baseball has been good in years, but after renting a few "the Shows" in the past few years, I haven't found any worthy of buying since 09. Like Madden, they have gotten lazy and done next to nothing other than roster updates.

I REALLY hope they are working on a brand new engine and launching a completely revamped game with next gen consoles, or I may never buy another one of these. There is no reason to use the same damn game engine for the entire life of a console. We are going on 7 years now of the exact same game with roster updates and minor tweaks. It's getting OLD!

But you're still forgetting one thing, its' still the best MLB game out there imo. Thankfully this isn't a case like NFL where Electronic Arts has exclusive rights to real players. I can only imagine how The Show will look on the PS4. Right now it looks awesome on the PS3.

I agree, it is by far the best baseball game out there. But where would you rank the other baseball games out there? Can you name them? That is because there are NONE. The Show is literally the only hardball game coming out this year.

Don't get me wrong, I think The Show craps all over 2k baseball, but they were the only other player in town. I know i will get a ton of disagrees for saying anything bad about the show or a Sony product, but I used to be a huge fan of the Show. I just feel like lack of competition breeds lack of innovation, and we are seeing it in the Show the last few years. Why would they innovate when all baseball fans who want to play a game HAVE to buy their product?

Guess that means nobody thinks they can no longer compete. Kind of how EA took NBA Live off the release schedule because NBA2K is so good. I do agree there should be more, especially for those who want to play a MLB game and not own a Vita or PS3.

Maybe they should bring back Baseball Simulator 1000. That was a fun game but a totally different type of baseball. Rumors are that EA might bring back their MVP game.

MLB baseball just might not be a very popular game for sales, not sure why we only really have 1.

Mike,
The reason that no one else makes games is because 2k owned the exclusive rights for baseball games, just like Madden does for football. For baseball though, it doesn't cover first party devs, so Sony and Microsoft could each develop their own baseball game, of which Sony does.

2ks exclusivity ended this year, and everyone just assumed they would extend it, hence the reason why no one else made a hardball game. I am hoping that with the launch of new consoles, both MSoft and Sony have their own brand new baseball game engines ready to roll, so we can get some good old competition again....

Wish they'd make a football game!

They can't since EA has exclusive rights from the NFL.

So how about some cross buy????

UMMMMMM........Looks exactly like last years trailer. Except there is a new type of interface or something in the trailer. all I saw were dots running around the diamond in a menu screen. Not a bad thing, but I cant see them making huge improvements until a PS4 version comes out in the next couple years.

Good Luck with that or other wise buy a PS3 or Vita.

Baseball will be exclusive to PS this year.
