MLB: The Show 16 for PS3 and PS4 is yet another instalment of the MLB: The Show series that aims at recreating the experience of professional baseball players from the Major Baseball League. SCE San Diego Studio, known for the previous parts of the game, is the developer of the title.
The main objective of MLB: The Show 16 for PS3 and PS4 is very similar to that of the 2015’s instalment. The game of course introduces improvements and novelties, including ShowTime, which is a kind of bullet-time that slows down time and allows for striking and catching the ball more accurately and spectacularly. The Road To The Show mode is also improved (PS4 only) and due to the renovated player training system you can unlock a wide range of perks useful during the games.
MLB: The Show 16 was released in three editions. Apart from the regular one, there is the MVP Edition including: a metal box, 5,000 Stubs, 1 Sponsor Pack, 10 Standard Packs, 31 PS4 MLB Themed Avatars, and 1 Opening Day Pack. The Digital Deluxe Edition offers 11,000 Stubs, 1 Sponsor Pack, 20 Standard Packs, 31 PS4 MLB Themed Avatars, and 3 Opening Day Packs.
It is worth mentioning that the cover features Josh Donaldson from Toronto Blue Jays.
