The shock and awe of this story has waned a lot over the past couple of releases, but for the third time in a row PS5 owners will be asked to pod out $69.99 for Sony’s very own MLB The Show 23, while Xbox Game Pass subscribers will be able to play at no extra cost. The PS4 version will retail for $59.99. There’s currently no mention of any deals or offers for PS Plus members.
Sony has said in the past that it’s not sustainable to release first-party titles day one into a subscription service, but it’s somehow repeated this feat on three consecutive occasions now. While the MLB is technically responsible for publishing The Show on non-PlayStation platforms, the Japanese giant still wholly owns the developer behind the series and considers it part of its PS Studios portfolio.
