- Transferable Season, Franchise and Road To The Show Saves
"We know how much time and effort our fans put into their Seasons, Franchises, and Road To The Show players. So beginning with MLB 14 The Show, you can now carry over your saves to future versions of MLB The Show. MLB 14 The Show lays the foundation for year-to-year saves, meaning you never have to worry about starting your Franchise or Road to the Show seasons over!"
- New Quick Counts Option
"For some of you, full 9-inning baseball games may be too long for your liking, so we’ve created an all-new Quick Counts option, which utilizes generated pitch counts allowing gamers to play through full games faster than ever. Realistic statistics in this shortened gameplay experience have not been compromised. Users will now be able to play a full 9 inning game in less than 30 minutes, essentially cutting traditional game times in half."
- Improved Road To The Show
"We think Road To The Show is the deepest, most realistic single-player experience in sports video games, and we’re making it even better. A few of the new features include a new advancement system, new intuitive player creation process, and all new pre-draft prospect showcase."
- Share Your Amazing Plays
"And finally, what makes baseball great are those “big moments.” The power of PS4 will allow gamers to share those moments using the new “share feature” by capturing and publishing their most thrilling baseball moments, from hitting a game-winning grand slam, to picking off a runner at first for a crucial win in a World Series game."
- Even Better Graphics
"Thanks to the power of PS4, MLB 14 The Show is going to be the most beautiful baseball product we’ve ever created."
- New Universal Currency called Stubs
"We’re simplifying add-on purchases from seasons past, rolling everything into a Universal Currency we’re calling Stubs. We want to be very clear with this, however, since it’s a frequent question and concern among the community: not one cent needs to be spent on Stubs for users to enjoy a full experience in any of our modes.
What’s more, Stubs are earned through general gameplay (just like XP) and tied to your Universal Profile. Most importantly, the rate at which Stubs are earned is intentionally generous. We are not designing the system to pressure players into spending money. It will be the same system it’s been in years prior, just all rolled together with a new name."
I am so excited for this! The Show is definitely the best sports game out there.. one worth purchasing on release day.
And goodness, thank you share button. I always took videos of clutch plays, but couldn't really share them unless I went through some loops. This will be great now to be able to share videos of key home runs or just wacky moments lol.
Add a 9vs9 Online mode and the replay value of MLB The Show would skyrocket.
It would never happen, but that would be awesome!
