MLB 12: The Show
Sony’s PlayStation exclusive baseball game has 10-run ruled the competition for years now, but like the New York Yankees, that isn’t stopping the developers from upgrading its evil empire. For 2012, San Diego Studio is unleashing several new features, including another layer of polish on the already impressive presentation, more realistic ball physics, and full-blown PlayStation Move controls. Batters can now aim the location of your swing to catch that cutter on the outside of the plate, and on the mound a new timing-based mechanic better judges the accuracy of your pitch. The Show also introduces a new card-based mode that takes cues from EA’s popular Ultimate Team mode, and cross-functionality with the Vita lets you play your PS3 franchise games on the road.
