Welcome back, friends! We have a huge show today, with interviews on MLB The Show 17, Prey, and a surprisingly intimate look into Sid’s past that none of us were prepared for.
Hello PlayStation.Blog friends, welcome to another season of MLB The Show! For anyone who grew up collecting baseball cards (I did!) or dreamed of managing a Major League Baseball team (I wish!), you may want to spend a little more time in Diamond Dynasty this year. And even if you didn’t collect baseball cards as a kid, Diamond Dynasty still provides a variety of great experiences for gamers, especially those who love strategy.
In addition to talking about the awesome new things we have for Diamond Dynasty this year, we’ve also put together a Diamond Dynasty guide below to help jumpstart newcomers to the game mode.
Until now we’ve only revealed a portion of what’s to come with the launch of MLB The Show 17 with our Playback Trailer of the PlayStation Experience gameplay video.
Today, we’re excited to dig a little deeper into the new Retro Mode in MLB The Show 17 with a video from our team in San Diego. We’re also highlighting the regional cover athletes for Canada and Taiwan, we’re outlining what you get by making the jump to our Season Starter Packs, and — last but certainly not least — we’re revealing the Twitch livestream schedule leading up to launch.
I’m pleased to announce that our upcoming premium gaming headset, the Platinum Wireless Headset, will be available on January 12 for $159.99 (MSRP).The headset showcases enhanced, highly positional 7.1 virtual surround sound powered by PlayStation’s proprietary 3D audio technology. Hidden noise-cancelling microphones provide crisp, clear communication without the need for a boom mic. The headset combines superior construction and design offering style, durability, and maximum comfort – especially for long gaming sessions. Platinum is compatible with PlayStation VR and mobile devices using the included 3.5mm audio cable.
During the World Series, we revealed that newly inducted Hall of Famer Ken Griffey Jr. will grace the cover of MLB The Show 17. The Kid’s signature style transcended the baseball diamond and helped create some of the most memorable baseball video games of the 90’s. Most of us at San Diego Studio grew up playing those classics and wondered how we could recreate a nostalgic feeling for a generation of gamers.
For anyone who picked up a baseball glove or a video game controller in the last 25 years, there is no other name more synonymous with baseball in the 90’s and 2000’s than this year’s cover athlete for MLB The Show 17.
Destined for greatness, no player entered the Big League with more hype than the first pick of the 1987 MLB draft, and no player entered baseball’s Hall of Fame with a higher percentage of the vote than “The Natural.” A legend both on and off the field, “The Kid” inspired a generation of baseball fans with electric play, a contagious smile, enviable flair, and a swing that’s been imitated but never duplicated for almost three decades.
Almost twenty years since his last appearance in a baseball video game, Ken Griffey Jr. returns to the digital diamond as the cover athlete of MLB The Show 17.
