  • Sorry, No PSVR support, No Purchase. I have bought every MLB game from Sony since 1998, including the PSP and Vita versions. I gave the team a pass for the first 2 years of PSVR being out, but this year I can’t throw my support behind this without VR. All I needed was PSVR HR Derby and PSVR Batting Practice, and I would have dropped $99.99 on the Premium Edition.

    Wish you all the best this year. Hopefully next year we will finally get to experience Baseball in VR. If so, I will be ready and waiting, cash in PSN Wallet.

    PSVR support would have made it a must-buy for me also. Sadly the streak of buying every MLB The Show game each year has ended. I’m done paying $65 for player updates each year.

  • B4 17 i didnt even know about online franchise but since i haven’t played much anything else. Haven’t bought the game since, and I’m dissappinted because it looks awesome otherwise

  • Install issues! I’m at roughly 85% and it stalled. I have plenty of HDD space (85GB) free space so that isn’t the issue. Any ideas on why it’s stalled?

    I don’t know if any developers read this, but have you ever considered adding an Arcade Style Home Run Derby akin to the early Triple Play games on the PS One? Such as Targets, Breakables, Fantasy Settings, Etc.? I would pay extra for that feature, and you could add it to the Arcade Mode! I don’t play the Arcade mode right now, but I would love an Arcade Style HR Derby mode. Anyone else?
