Sony has released a title update for MLB 13: The Show, which includes numerous fixes to art, online play, backend functions, and several hiccups. Below is a breakdown of all the fixes and changes, via MLB The Show Nation:

- In offline and online games, there was an occasional hitch/millisecond delay just as the pitcher would release the pitch. This was reported with a frequency ranging from approximately 10%

- 40%. The title was writing data to the HDD at this point, causing the brief, but noticeable hiccup in the gameplay. When the title writes to the HDD has been adjusted, and this hitch/delay will no longer occur.

- Franchise Fantasy Draft blank screen in Standard Def only. This was reported with a 100% frequency. In a Franchise mode, when performing a Fantasy Draft, the first round worked correctly. Every round after the first round would have a blank list of available players and drafted players. User could scroll through the empty list and choose players, but the player names were invisible. This was standard definition only. This has been fixed.

With both MLB 13: The Show and MLB 2K13 dropping tomorrow morning, we decided to take a look at how each game looks. Last week we showed you some The Show screenshots of the 2013 Jays, so we used those shots as a basis for comparison. Here are some side-by-sides, comparing the two games. Hopefully this will make your decision clearer on which game you should pick up tomorrow.

We haven’t gotten our copy of MLB 13: The Show yet (fingers crossed tomorrow), but our new friend Chris Johnson has been supplying us with screenshots of the Jays at home. My favorite is the Bautista home jersey stance, but take a look at your 2013 Toronto Blue Jays at home.

Yesterday we showed you how the Jays roster was looking, as well at some hat controversy. Today we continue MLB 13: The Show leak week with the official intro to the game. The intro features Jose Bautista, Bryce Harper, Buster Posey, Miguel Cabrera, CC Sabathia, Matt Kemp, Ryan Braun and cover athlete Andrew McCutchen. Interesting choice of song, going with the Imagine Dragons song, “Radioactive”:
