After an above average showing with MLB 07: The Show last year, SCE San Diego upped their game for the release of MLB 08: The Show on the PlayStation Portable. This time around they decided to take the positive from both the PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3 versions of the game and throw them into one small portable format. The big question here is, did they strikeout while doing so or did they finally hit that round tripper. Even though the game is an upgrade from last year's installment, we'll rest pat with calling it a triple at best.
* + Road to the Show improvements
* + Solid online play
* + Great pitcher/hitter analysis
* - Visual tearing is rough
* - Camera angles are too tight
* - Lack of throwing meter
