SCEA Debuts MLB ’06 The Show

Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) last week announced the release of the only officially licensed first party video baseball game by Major League Baseball Properties (MLBP), Major League Baseball Advanced Media (MLBAM) and the League’s Players Association (MLBPA). MLB ’06 The Show is now available for the PlayStation 2 and PlayStation Portable video game systems.

MLB ’06 The Show for the PlayStation 2 and PlayStation Portable, said SCEA, adds more than 3,000 individual player animations, including personalized stances, pitching animations, individualized swings, batting rituals and pitcher release points. Other interesting features of this game include an arcade-style mini game which pits player versus batter in a head to head, time based challenge, online gameplay as well as an online community, a rivalry mode on the PlayStation 2 version when players can set up and maintain multi-game rivalries and track stats and wireless match ups between other players on the PlayStation Portable version.

The athlete on this year’s cover of both platform titles is Boston Red Sex DH David Ortiz. Ortiz in 2004 had 91 extra base hits, 139 RBI and 41 home runs.

“With advancements to Career, Franchise and Online Modes, as well as an unrivaled broadcast simulation, MLB’06 The Show has raised the level of authenticity and realism and further solidified its position as the most true-to-life game in the market,” said Scott Rohde, director, sports product development, Sony Computer Entertainment America, in a statement. “We’re excited to provide baseball fans with an opportunity to truly feel what it’s like to play in the Big Leagues.”
