MLB 11 The Show also continues to build upon an already stellar reputation for immersion and unparalleled delivery of the baseball experience. With various new key features and enhancements to the critically acclaimed title, MLB 11 The Show is poised to continue the franchise's reign as the premier MLB licensed game on any platform.
Leading off on our new features set for PS3 is the addition of the Pure Analog Control System, which includes analog controls for hitting, pitching, and throwing adding more precision and accuracy to all three disciplines. Pure Hitting allows you to stride and swing using the Right Analog Stick, Pure Pitching functionality incorporates a new Pitch Meter when setting strength and location, and Pure Throwing can be used to make defensive throws by simply pointing the Right Analog Stick in the direction of the base, also allowing for fake throws to keep runners honest.
Next up is the newly added Co-op Mode, which allows up to four-player offline or online cooperative play where sports gamers can split duties covering either the infield or outfield, while also switching off at the plate or choosing the specific batters they'd like to control. Users can play 1 vs. 2, 2 vs. 2, or 2 vs. CPU. Also adding to the competitive fire is MLB 11 The Show's Challenge of the Week—a quick, fast paced 2-3 minute, 1-player, online experience, with leader boards and prizes awarded, in 3 tiers.
The fifth generation of Road to the Show returns in version 5.0 bringing a new interactive slider set to the Create Player process, new training modes triggered by the Player Performance Evaluator, Minor League substitution logic improvements, advancement system improvements that now compare your stats versus your competition in the organization, and the new No Assist Fielding option to make the fielding experience even more realistic.
New to the MLB 11 The Show broadcast booth is former Dodger first baseman Eric Karros who joins franchise veterans Matt Vasgersian and Dave Campbell to complete the three man crew. Karros currently works as a color commentator for baseball on the FOX network as well as KCAL-TV in Los Angeles, where he does the pre-game show for Dodger games.
Additional new features for the PS3 game include stereoscopic 3D functionality in all gameplay modes, a customizable camera editor, stadium specific broadcast camera angles for all 30 MLB teams, new weather elements in the form of rain and dynamic cloud coverage, stadium specific jumbotrons and fireworks, and PlayStation Move motion controller support making its debut in Home Run Derby®.
