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.
MLB 13: The Show leak week continues as today we bring you some classic stadiums. Sony has included 10 old school stadiums to play in, and the best news is that they’re all free. Here are the 10 stadiums you get, followed by some screens of each one:
Crosley Field (Cincinnati, Ohio)
Forbes Field (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania)
Griffith Stadium (Washington, D.C. )
Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome (Minneapolis, Minnesota)
Polo Grounds (Upper Manhattan, New York)
Shea Stadium (Queens, New York)
Shibe Park (Philadelphia, Pennsylvania)
Sportsman’s Park (St. Louis, Missouri)
Sun Life Stadium (Miami Gardens, Florida)
Yankee Stadium (South Bronx, New York)
Once again, shoutout to Chris Johnson, who’s been dropping these pics on the daily.
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”:
The Atlanta Braves created a wave of controversy earlier this winter when sketches of a new batting practice cap for 2013 displayed the club’s “screaming indian” logo. The Braves haves since introduced a less polarizing cap, and refuted reports that the club had made a final decision on the “screaming indian” emblem. It appears as though the decision to go with a more traditional “A” logo may have been made too late for Sony to include it the initial release of MLB 13: The Show. An Operation Sports community member snagged screenshots of all 30 caps, including the “screaming indian” lid pictured above.
This is likely just a case of game developers working with old information, as it was just February 11 when the Braves made an official announcement on their new batting practice cap. Designs featuring the offensive logo first appeared in late December. Hopefully it’s something that Sony can fix with a title update upon the game’s release.
MLB 13: The Show drops on March 5. Screenshots of all 30 MLB batting practice caps can be viewed at Operation Sports.
Today is leak day in the MLB 13: The Show world. Earlier today we showed you how the Jays are ranked, now here’s the game’s soundtrack. Once again, Sony has mixed up the playlist with songs from all genres:
Demo copies are being sent out for MLB 13: The Show this week (we should be getting ours this week, fingers crossed). Twitter user Chris Johnson has his copy already, and posted the overall rating for each team. Here is how your new-look Blue Jays team fare:
