Spring training is officially in full swing. In less than a month fans will begin packing stadiums around the country, clamoring for sunflower seeds, popcorn, hot dogs and refreshments – ready to cheer their team on with big dreams of bringing home a pennant in 2011. If you can’t make it to spring training and are already counting down the days until the official first pitch is thrown, then you’re in luck. In less than a week, the number one selling, highest rated baseball franchise exclusive to PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable returns when MLB 11 The Show hits stores nationwide. Now baseball fans everywhere will have the chance to hone their skills and get in the game a little early this season. In preparation, Kevin Butler is back, challenging Twins All-Star catcher, Joe Mauer, to a battle at the plate.
You’ve heard us say it before, but this year truly marks some exciting updates for the franchise. MLB 11 The Show takes this fan favorite to the next level by providing you with multiple choices when it comes to how you play the game. A great example is the new PURE Control System – the optional ability to control your swing, pitching and fielding with the analog sticks on your DUALSHOCK 3 controller – a feature many sports fans have asked for and will now have at your fingertips. The game also sports 3D functionality and PlayStation Move support within our Home Run Derby mode, giving you the opportunity to immerse yourself in the action like never before.
MLB 11 The Show will be in stores next Tuesday, March 8th and this TV ad will begin running this afternoon when the Miami Heat takes on the Orlando Magic on TNT. Over the next several weeks you will also be able to catch it during more of your favorite programs on popular networks such as ESPN, ESPN2, TNT, TBS and Comedy Central.
Go Giants and see you on the field!
