Re: MLB The Show 21 Information So Far

These 4 things intrigue me the most...
  • New pitching mechanic
  • Complete fielding overhaul
  • New Franchise and MTO tools to better plan for the future
  • DualSense and 3-D audio integration

Return of MLB2K's gesture-based pitching perhaps?

Complete fielding overhaul and new franchise tools are extremely intriguing to me. While I think the fielding has improved over the course of time, the outfield play, especially dives and jumps and playing the ball near the wall all need re-working/re-written/re-animated or new animations added.

Obviously Y2Y saves is a big blow, at least to me, but depending on what the new franchise tools, and improvements to franchise as whole, turn out to be, will likely determine if I make the jump this year or wait a year to move to the next consoles of games.

Very curious to see what the differences are feature wise between the next gen and current gen versions of the game.

Re: MLB The Show 21 Information So Far

In the article, it says, ďThe studio also teased the ability to play cross-gen. The potential for Sony users to square off against Microsoft owners will certainly pique the interest of the community. Of course, this perhaps also just means PS4 players going against PS5 players ó and the same goes for Microsoft.Ē

In the FAQ on The Show website it says, ďonline cross-play is available across platforms (PS5 to Xbox Series X & PS4 to Xbox One) as well as within console ecosystems (PS5/PS4 and Xbox Series X/Xbox One)Ē

So there will definitely be cross play, but the way itís worded looks like PS4 canít play with Series X and Xbox One canít play with PS5.
