MLB 11 The Show Only Supports Move in Home Run Derby Mode
Posted by James Newton
That's all, folks
As the latest entry in Sony's flagship baseball series, it's no surprise that MLB 11 The Show will support the company's flagship motion controller, PlayStation Move. When MLB 11's Move support was announced it was thought only the game's Home Run Derby mode would be playable with Move, denying pitchers the chance to use Move's accuracy, and now the game's finalised fact sheet confirms that.
The controller is only mentioned towards the end of the sheet, proving it doesn't play a large part in the game's feature set, with the description reading:
Additional new features for PS3 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 the Home Run Derby® mode.
As the game's DualShock controls have received a total analogue overhaul it's a little disappointing that Move support is limited to the Home Run Derby mode alone, as full Move compatibility would be a great showcase for the controller's abilities.
Will the game's lack of full Move support keep you from making a purchase? Would you want to play an entire ball game with PlayStation Move? Let us know in the comments below.
