MLB 13: The Show Hits a Homerun in Europe Later Today

Posted by Sammy Barker

Anyone for a game of rounders?

Sony’s responded to the demand for MLB 13: The Show outside of North America, announcing that the baseball simulator will take aim on the European PlayStation Store later today. You’ll be able to purchase both the PlayStation 3 and Vita versions of the critically acclaimed sports title when the digital storefront refreshes in a few hours, though there’s no word on pricing just yet.

The full game features a wealth of cross-platform functionality, allowing you to save your season on one device and continue your progress on the road. You’ll also be able to compete against other players online, irrespective of platform. The title launched in North America yesterday, as both a physical release and as a digital download.

Update: According to the PlayStation Blog, the title will cost £39.99 on PS3 and £23.99 on Vita.

It's an excellent game, if any of you have just a slight interest in baseball check this one out. I know people who can't stand the sport but still love this series.

Not for me but think the idea of releasing games via PSN as opposed to discs which won't sell much is a good idea. Hardly anybody would have bought a copy of Tokyo Jungle on disc but I imagine it did well on PSN. This idea should happen more in my opinion. Games like Lost Planet E.X. Troopers or Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA ƒ which a lot of people would like overseas (the latter especially, personally).

@get2sammyb I know I said online petitions don't work - sadly they don't - but I'm tempted to start one to get import games over here. Just to see if Sony take notice. Nintendo did something called Hanabi Festival a few times a year where import games were available for a period and that could be awesome on PSN. The majority wouldn't even need translating (Project DIVA ƒ wouldn't), unless a massive JRPG. Could even include games such as Radiant Silvergun, Ikaruga and Sonic 3 & Knuckles which are all ridiculously absent. Shame I have no idea how to start it or that it wouldn't work :')

Also agree that PSN is a good option for this game and many others. Personally if games are released only in the US I just order from Amazon. Obviously you can't do that for Japanese games.
