MLB The Show is taking the show on the road. The PlayStation Studios-made game has long been a highlight for baseball fans, praised for its realism, attention to detail and many game modes — but it’s been exclusive to Sony consoles. Now, it will be coming to Microsoft’s Xbox One and in addition to the PlayStation 4 and , on April 20.
The new game will retail for $60 (£60) for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 editions, and $70 (£70) for a next-gen version that works on Xbox Series X/S and PS5. Cross-platform play between the same generation of systems (PS5 playing against an Xbox Series X/S, or a PS4 playing against an Xbox One) will be supported. You’ll also be able to play within the same family of consoles (Xbox Series X/S can play someone on Xbox One; someone on PS4 can play someone on PS5).
The new edition, which features San Diego Padres star Fernando Tatis Jr. on the cover, marks the first version of The Show to arrive on both platforms as part of a deal MLB reached with Sony in 2019. A version of The Show for Nintendo Switch was also in the works, but that edition of the game was not announced on Monday.
