Reviewing Sports titles is typically harder than reviewing most games. Who exactly are these reviews supposed to be for? Are they supposed to be for new fans who know nothing about how the game plays? Or are they supposed to be for die-hards, to tell them if the game has improved and how much time should be spent with any specific part. This task is especially hard in a year where major sports might be canceled due to a global pandemic. That’s ironic considering that the 15th anniversary of Sony San Diego’s MLB the Show franchise is probably it’s best to date in terms of actual mechanics.
There has been a deluge of PlayStation news in the past week. The departure of Shawn Layden, the official launch of crossplay support on PS4, PlayStation Now price cuts, and a more in-depth look at the officially named PlayStation 5. But the news keeps coming. Let’s Go Digital has uncovered a Sony patent for a new VR headset. You may remember them as the group that uncovered the patent that was revealed to be the PlayStation 5 devkit, so there’s a history here.
