How MLB 14: The Show speeds up America's pastime

How MLB 14: The Show speeds up America's pastime

Improving on a well-regarded sports experience is an arduous task for just about any studio, but it's a challenge that Sony San Diego relishes with every new iteration of its hit franchise MLB The Show. The challenge is even greater this year, as MLB 14: The Show marks the series' debut on PlayStation 4. But Sony San Diego looks to be up to the task, not only taking advantage of the new console's power, but also implementing some new ideas that will enhance the overall gameplay experience.

Even the most avid baseball fans will admit that the game can get pretty slow. On average, a baseball game will run about three hours with more marquee matchups (Yankees/Red Sox, for example) exceeding the four-hour mark. A baseball video game is no different, but Sony's San Diego studio is going into this year's The Show with some new ideas to help America's pastime move just a little bit faster.
