MLB the Show 21 a top PAID game on Xbox. PS5 store not listing MLB in pre-orders, featured, or what's hot.

A comparison of MLB The Show 21 in both PS5 and Xbox stores on launch day. Despite being free via GP, it seems MLB has more sales activity on Xbox if the stores are tracking latest sales? If MLB ends up selling more on Xbox despite being on GP, this could be huge for the service going forward as 3rd party devs will take notice.

today isn't launch day though, the game launches tomorrow

not sure why it's disappeared on PS5 but it's still on the webstore, this just seems like a total bunk video

edit: it's on the front page of the web store even


also this channel has under <50 subscribers, how did you even stumble across this video OP when it has 3 views? is this your channel & you're self-promoting?

We had this discussion with Outriders on Xbox too, and there were some weird other games on the chart that you’d never expect to be up there - only they were mostly on Game Pass too.

I suspect that this “top paid games” chart is in some way influenced by Gamepass downloads, not just sales.

Seems like it is more about activity than sales indeed.

Is this a statement or question? Lol 10/10 analysis. Send cv to McKinsey.

Is this a troll thread? The game has been heavily marketed on the PS5 store for months. The PS5 store takes games off of the preorder tab before the games come out because guess what, the game launches tomorrow. It's pretty much getting the store ready for the release of the game. This thread is stupid.

It is already in the featured and new section even before the OP made the thread.
In New section there are both version.

Makes sense.

Not everyone has GP. And as I said in an old post, there hasnt been a legitimate baseball game in around 10 years (one of those old crappy 2k games). I'm not including $20 RBI Baseball or any weird indie baseball games in the mix (ya, there was a Creators Club baseball game for $5).

So Xbox gamers might be itching for a baseball game.

I hope I don't regret joining this thread...

But I own both consoles and I have been seeing MLB the show on PS5 for the past few weeks. First thing I see when I go into the store. Kept on seeing different editions of the game being advertised in big banners before getting to the list of games to browse.

I just checked now and it is in the PS Store "Must See" section which is basically the first row you see when you go into the store.

I just checked the MS Store (which I never go into because I have gamepass), and MLB the show isn't even the first thing I see, I scroll a page down and I still see no MLB the show, I have to scroll 4 pages down were it is advertised MLB the show is on my gamepass.

So, I go into gamepass to see how MS is advertising MLB the show there... I had to scroll down about 4-5 pages to the "coming soon" section of gamepass to see MLB the show for the first time.

Maybe Sony and MS has logic behind showing the user what they are interested in by their history or activity? Maybe it is different region by region?
