MLB 12 The Show has hit store shelves for the PS3 and PS Vita. The long-running series continues with support for the Move in all modes, cross-platform save functionality between the PS3 and Vita, enhanced graphics and mechanics, and TruBroadcast presentations. The new cross functionality includes all of the core components, including Exhibition, and Home Run Derby, with the ability to share save files, allowing for The Show progression to be moved between systems. In addition, ’12 adds an entirely new mode, Diamond Dynasty.
Diamond Dynasty allows players to manage teams, tweak player progression, and compete online “with more creative freedom than any sports game to date.” What makes the new mode so unique is that teams are built by using virtual baseball cards, and every aspect of the team, from training to budget, will be managed against other real-world and CPU opponents. Cards can be gained through purchasing packs, buying them from other players, or through the mode’s recycling system.
“As the number-one selling sports title of over the past four years, MLB The Show has done a fantastic job of delivering the most authentic MLB experience available with unparalleled realism and attention to detail,” said Guy Longworth, Senior Vice President, PlayStation Brand Marketing, SCEA. “This year is no different as MLB 12 The Show brings players closer to the action that ever before. From full PlayStation Move support in all modes of play to the ability to share save files between PS3 and the newly launched PlayStation Vita, MLB 12 The Show captures the true passion of Major League Baseball, while allowing fans to continue playing, anytime, anywhere.”
