Damn this is pretty awesome. Props to Sony for bringing it over to Xbox. Though it took way too long for that.

It’s great the Xbox is getting this. I know people that lied to themselves that rbi baseball or some shit was okay while I was laughing playing the show.

I hope this doesn’t bite them in the ass though. Going multi platform the same time as releasing on next gen consoles seems like a bad idea.

I hope Xbox fans enjoy paying for a $70 game that's infested with micro-transactions
Lol now you say this, your previous tweet says otherwise. Remember you claiming that PlayStation (who isn’t responsible for this decision) their values just went down over this game. Talk about ignorance.

No, MLB has been producing RBI for several years but it’s just a bare bones arcade game.

Baseball is one of the worst professional sports today, but baseball video games are still really fun to play. MLB The Show probably ranks second only to NBA2k for me. I wonder if that has more to do with the devs of both franchises actually giving a shit about the sports they cover.

This is great for Xbox gamers, as The Show is hands-down the best baseball franchise ever. I don't even think that's debatable, and I'm one of those old heads who swore by Baseball All Stars on the old NES for over a decade.

Sony has had the MLB license since around 1993. They weren't going to risk souring the partnership.

Watch Sony will some how get Xbox players to download the last gen version on the new hardware so they know how PlayStation 5 users feel.

If it performs better on PS5, it will be either "Sony knowingly gimped it on XSX" or "Sony doesn't know how to optimize for XSX".

If it performs better on XSX, it will be "looooool @ Sony. Even PS Studios games run and play better on Xbox! Phil Spencer rules!" 😂

I hope this doesn't happen, but I suspect some of my more zealous XBros will go with whichever narrative is applicable. After all console wars are serious business.

Actually, NBA2k20 and Madden were on Gamepass (EA Access), so bunch of players played in that way. Will MLB appear on GP. I highly doubt it
You mean a year after release when the next one is out and the previous versions sell for $5?

I kid, sort of.
