The lights are on
Sony has finally announced when baseball fans will be stepping up to the plate this year. If you’re planning on picking up this year’s installment of The Show on PlayStation 3 and Vita, you’ll only have to wait for one day after MLB Opening Day.
April 1 will mark the release of the title on those systems. Those waiting for a PlayStation 4 version will have to wait just a bit longer. New-generation baseball is coming in May.
Cross-platform saves will ease some of the pain, as you’ll be able to move among PS3, Vita, and PS4. Sony is also piloting cross-year saves, which will allow you to bring your progress in MLB 14 into future games.
The titles will also mark a change in add-on purchases. A new currency called “stubs” will be earned through gameplay and can be purchased with real money. Sony assures that these are absolutely not required to experience any of the game and will be generously distributed.
Sony promises more details on the PlayStation 4 version soon (and we’re interested to see if there will be an upgrade plan given the staggered release dates). For now though, here’s a trailer for the PlayStation 3 edition.

That dude's too cool for school.
Really looking forward to next-gen baseball on the PS4. I liked a lot of what I saw them talking about and showing in terms of the differences in power between PS3 and PS4.
Way to treat those PS4 owners Sony. I don't and will never understand first party publishers who can't even supply their own consoles with timely software releases.
Well the thing about this is that this isn't a bad thing at all. This just gives the consumer more options as to what platform they want to buy the game for.
Looking forward to getting the PS4 version.
looks amazing on ps4
