mlb the show 21 xbox

For years Xbox owners have glanced across the way to the PlayStation market in hope that the superb MLB The Show would one day be theirs. And honestly, we never really thought those dreams would come true. But they have and with the release of MLB The Show 21 both Xbox and PlayStation players can get in on the action, owning their rivals and taking down the show. 

Available to purchase and download right now on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4 and PS5, MLB The Show 21 hits both console formats to deliver what could well be the best baseball experience yet. And what’s more, the Standard edition of the game is due to hit Xbox Game Pass too.

Present and playable right now should you decide to lump the cash in on the Digital Deluxe Edition or Jackie Robinson Edition of the game – and if you don’t, you’ll need to hold tight until the 20th April – MLB The Show 21 promises to let you go deeper into the baseballing experience than ever before, as you experience faster more intense gameplay and some of the very best moment to moment on-field action. 

With MLB having already dropped R.B.I. Baseball 21 to console a few weeks back, MLB The Show 21 steps up to the plate to deliver an altogether different experience, one that the increased asking price warrants. You see, with this release, not only will our friends at PlayStation donate a $1 to the Jackie Robinson Foundation for every Digital Deluxe/Jackie Robinson Edition sold in the United States, but in terms of gameplay they look to have hit the mark too. 

Cross-play with those PS4 and PS5 players is in hand, you’ll be able to lead your team to victory in Road to the Show and Diamond Dynasty, and will also enjoy the latest updates to Franchise.
