The Future of MLB The Show
 

 
Seeing that itís multiplat now and even worse for Sony on Gamepass day one, do you guys think Sony is gonna continue having SD studio develop the game? I mean thereís not a real reason not to and if I have a good read on Jim Ryan, heís all about the money and is more than willing to take the perceived L in order to generate more revenue.

Realistically tho, the Show has more or less been the same game for a few years now, they have a great code for the sh*t that doesnít need much tinkering at this point. Itís nothing for them to sell it to the MLB or even give it to them and have another dev pick it up from here. It could open up SD Studio to do something else or help on other games and they would still be getting the game alongside Xbox (and hopefully PC and Switch eventually)

I canít wait to see all the details to this deal and the ramifications for the industry. Sony exclusives bout to have be all out of this world to keep offering value if Gamepass can keep getting good games day one

They could just tell MLB to split the licence with EA and make The Show exclusive since they own the IP... Then EA can develop mediocre MLB games with microtransactions to Xbots

You say this after Microsoft just purchased Bethesda, lol. That was the "biggest take your ball home" move when they realized they dont have shyt to compete with Sony for the next 2 years for next gen consoles.

What do you mean? you're telling Sony San Diego not to make the game anymore.

Xbox is telling you to either buy a PC or Xbox or if you don't want to do either one of these you can play it in a web browser or a telephone.
To either way Microsoft has the money to buy your exclusive and give it to us for free while you cry online about it.

I mean realistically The Show ainít nothing to keep pumping out at this point, itís already a top notch game. It would make sense to just have another studio keep up with it at this point and maybe have SD around to make sure they donít go too off the rails in some capacity.

I think that'd end up ruining the game in the long run, which would be a L for all parties involved. It'll prob turn to sh*t just like the MLB 2K series.

They can't really tell the MLB to do anything. I mean look at this situation. They either make the game the way that the MLB wants or they have no license to make it at all. You think that EA can tell the NFL to do whatever they want when it comes to Madden? They'll take that sh*t away with the quickness.

It's interesting to read how yall switch up so much with all these fantasy narratives. MLB The Show, at a lot of points in the sim sports realm has been a system seller. I know I originally bought the PS3 for it.. If Playstation's user base and console sales are so much bigger than MS', why do yall even care so much about what XBOX is doing with a game that more people play on Playstation?

I donít think he means they can tell MLB to tell EA to make the game like force them or anything, just as a suggestion. That would ultimately be up to the MLB tho. Sony probably gonna ask for more money or more of a cut into profits if they continue to make the MLB games.

I feel like that's likely been taken care of considering the terms MLB placed on them and time it's taken to get the game running on XBOX. It's not like this is a situation where they just rushed a port out. If that is the case, then that'd just k*ll any leverage the studio might have for a renegotiation like that.

Split the license like NBA does with 2k and Live... EA was interested in the license before Sony renewed but obviously the terms were multiplat... Depending on how this game sells on Playstation Sony may just decide to let the game go...

Hopefully that wouldn't be the case with them just abandoning it. If they go the route of the NBA, I think that The Show would still be multiplat in this era of gaming, there would just be more options. EA would be a good fit with their history of baseball games but The Show is in its own league. The NBA seems to not care as much as MLB/NFL with exclusivity, but it kinda does by default because EA can't get it together to make a game on 2K's level.

I canít front on EA, MVP Baseball 04/05 still might be my favorite baseball games and still does some sh*t better than the show to this day.

That was over 15 years ago too tho so

Yeaaaaah 04/05 might be my favorite year for all EA sports titles, but we see where they are now with Madden and what Live was. It def be a situation where people are just looking to play something different. Different wouldn't really equal better lol

They're developing the game... If they dont make money then they can just let the license go its not rocket science... Its simple business you make a product to sell it... If said product dont sell then whats the point to keep on making it?

It’s a baseball, who gives a fu*k.

The positive is that the studio will make $$$ from micro transactions

- if they let go of the license, 2k or/ and ea will jump on the opportunity right away and sd studio will regret losing out on all that money
