MLB 10: The Show Debuts on GameTrailers TV Tonight!

Chris Munson's Avatar + Posted by Chris Munson on Feb 11, 2010 // Product Marketing Manager, SCEA

Hello Sports Fans,

Ever wonder what it’s like to make one of those Dear PlayStation TV ads? Well, Spike TV got an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the upcoming TV commercial for MLB 10: The Show and will air it tonight on GameTrailers TV at 12am 12:30am PST/EST (during the same show as God of War III on Spike).

Additionally, we’ll be releasing our first big trailer for The Show during the same segment. Want to find out what Kevin Butler really knows about baseball? Why is Joe Mauer considered to be “America’s Fan-Friendliest Athlete”? Tune in and find out tonight.

Lastly, because we are proud to show off the game at any time, here is a whole slew of new screenshots that capture the intensity and authenticity that is The Show’s hallmark.

Visually, this game looks glorious. Here’s to hoping it meets that same standard on the gameplay front.

Slight note for EVERYONE. Gametrailers TV starts at 12:30am EST/PST, not the midnight time I posted. My bad. So, our segment runs during the same show as God of War 3!!! Set your watches!

Thanks

Any idea when MLB The Show will let us create a stadium in future game releases? Is this subject in the air for you guys?

I still play MLB 09 the Show, was privileged enough to get to write the review for, at a internet publication, it when it came out as well and of course gave it high marks.

I love the work you guys do and my list of “improvements” the game could make dwindles down to more of a “sticky note” with all the work you’ve done!

Let me know if you guys have Graphic Designer jobs open for future versions of The Show :)

The more I hear about this game, the more intrigued I become. I haven’t played any of the MLB The Show series, but it seems like I want to give this year’s release a go. I’m not much of a sports fan, but I enjoy playing sports games with my nephew.

We watched the last video that was posted here on the blog, and he was like “Gasp! are you gonna get it?” Haha, but you know what? I just might.

@Nepraos

I’ve got a few friends who aren’t even baseball fans but really enjoyed playing 09 The Show. Road to the Show mode makes it everyone’s type of game I think.

Chris, a question about the Halladay pic. The HR rob in the background is this a case of depth perception, I mean my man got an “S” on his chest.

Wasn’t a baseball gamer until The Show 09…u guys got me hooked and I look foward to 10. If only SCEA would pick up the Nascar licence and show the former holder how a racing game should look and play like…hmmm

I’m a Royals fan from Kansas City and I was wondering if the MLB: The Show team tweaked Kauffman Stadium at all from last year. It was nice that you put in some of the stadium improvements in the 09 game, but they weren’t quite right. I assume this was because the stadium was still in the process of being renovated when you were creating the game. Is the layout of Kauffman more accurate in MLB: The Show 10? I need perfect photo-realism as I watch batters embarrass themselves trying to hit Zack Greinke’s curveball!

Game looks Great. you guys should start opening up to other sports games with this type of quality, Cause this looks amazing.

Game looks awesome though.

This game is always great, but I thought they would have taken a cue from EA and put in online team play.

Anyways, looking forward to the Phils going back to the WS this year. The city’s still heart broken they let Lee go. A year with both Lee and Halladay would have been great to see.

Those Reserved Level seats at Dodger Stadium look a mighty dark shade of blue (like before they changed out all the seats a few years ago).

SCEA SD will progressive field in cleveland ohio look good in MLB 10 The Show will the championship banners be in right field in their correct spot or in Left Field? The last few years in the Show the banners I’m talking about are in the wrong spot. And finaly when will the demo for MLB 10 The Show be out?

+ TheGameV30 on February 11th, 2010 at 2:58 pm said:

quick question, will the HR Rob feature be fixed because in 09 it would show the rob indicator at the base of the Green Monster and then it would be a HR anddd i don’t know any players who can jump THAT high to rob a HR? Thanks!

I’ll buy along as you reassure me that the Cleveland Indians are the best team in the game.

I know, it’s a hard sell. :D

+ EnigmaNemesis on February 11th, 2010 at 3:26 pm said:

@22

Yes, they were in last year, and will be this year as well.

@24

Either or, it is optimized for 720p and will have 2xAA in that mode, but it does run naively in 1080p without AA.

Posted this elsewhere on here, but I thought I’d ask again:

With the classic stadiums you’ve got in the game, is there a way to set what field teams play on in Road to the Show? Playing as a center fielder in the Polo Grounds would possibly be the greatest game experience ever.

Hey Chris,

i have a question: when (if any) will you guys be doing a blog on the new player accessories and such (like bat color, glove color, shoes, etc.)? because i’ve been itching to hear about that stuff, anyways, the show is a constant game made up of complete awsomeness, and i’m sure i wont be dissapointed this year either, great job guys

@ everyone who is asking about the demo. No demo this week, I would rather have a game completely tied down to the fullest then to have them concentrate on a demo. Relax the game will be here soon enough.

NOW SINCE U ARE REPLYING TO SOME OF OUR QUESTIONS (WHICH I THINK IS MAD COOL ON UR PART)

WILL THE COMMENTATING BY THE ANNOUNCERS BE A LITTLE MORE ACCURATE THAN IN 09?

How does the stadiums look in MLB 10 The Show for this year? The reason I ask is because for exsample at progressive field the championship banners are in the wrong section they are on the LF wall and they in real baseball in the upper deck in RF at pronkville.

Wow this looks amazing. Thanks to all who help make this game. I look foward to it every year after Christmas time. I have 2 questions

1. Is there a website only for ’10 the show like ’09 the show had?

2. also, i dont mind doing it but every year there are free agent signings late going into spring training, but what is the date for the rosters being set. Say if J. Damon would sign today, would he be on the team he is suppose to be?

Once again you guys do an awesome job!! Thanks

Any chance that the ONLINE Season Leagues will be able to just have a few Human teams and the rest CPU controlled. I believe this is the only thing holding this game back. I like just playing with my friends, but dont want just 6 teams in the league playing Head-2-Head games. Any chance we will see this be similar to the NCAA Football ONLINE series?? The OFFLINE Franchise will incredible with the 10 day waiver process now included and the DL fixed. Looking forward to the game. I work in Baseball and to finally see the game include the true front office elements was a major addition. Just wanted to hear about the ONLINE being able to use smaller numbers with CPU teams much like the offline. Thanks.

Can you please make the game where you can import your previous year? I dominated in 08 and struggled a bit in 09. I wish you could transfer your career over. That would would really make the game worth it’s weight in dollars and encourage me to embark on that HOF career.

hey i cannot wait for this game. huge baseball fan and i just got a ps3 for Christmas so i am so excited for this game. i have heard nothing but great things about the previous versions of the show and how good mlb 10 should be. i have one question regarding online season and online franchise modes. i want to make an online league with 2 other people. so if we are controlling 3 teams, will the cpu control the rest of the league? i really do not want random people in our league. I just want it to be my 2 friends and me.

thanks, and i really cannot wait for this amazing baseball game
