We Got This Covered: Unlike some of its sports sim contemporaries, MLB The Show hasn’t really struggled in making the jump from console generation to generation. The two PlayStation 4 released entries have maintained the same solid core of the series, while also evolving into a graphical showcase for the console. The series’ main problem has been trying to innovate and evolve from a gameplay perspective. Not helping matters is the fact that its only competition comes from MLB Advanced Media’s budget R.B.I. Baseball franchise and the excellent, but not licensed, Super Mega Baseball.
