It doesn’t matter which side of the format wars fence you sit on – today you’re going to be swinging for them, as Sony and Microsoft join as one with release of MLB The Show 24 on Xbox and PlayStation.

MLB The Show 24 is the latest in the long line of batters from Sony’s San Diego Studio, as they give players the chance to take to the field and prove themselves in the cut throat world of baseball. 

Swing for the fences with Xbox and PlayStation

Officially, MLB The Show 24 doesn’t ‘release’ until March 19th 2024, via a Standard Edition of the game. But we all know that ‘official release dates’ pretty much mean nothing in the grand AAA scheme of things, with pre-order bonuses, early access and uber expensive Deluxe and Ultimate editions taking hold. That’s the case here and now with The Show 24 – if you have purchased the Digital Deluxe Edition of MVP Edition, you can get playing now. That’s RIGHT NOW!

In MLB The Show 24 you’ll be left to prove yourself on the world stage as you work your way through minors to the big leagues, attempting to make it at the very top. With legends of the sport present, there should be no reason why you can’t be called a World Series champion. 

Of course, The Show 24 should allow San Diego Studio to utilise all their knowledge from past games, building on it for the greatest version yet. We’ve reviewed both MLB The Show 22 and MLB The Show 23 (hold tight for some 24 thoughts) and have loved both games. Should be the same here, no?

Key features

With MLB The Show 24, the key features for the year are as follows…

So, tempted by MLB The Show 24? Great, because you’ve got a good few options available to you. 

On the Xbox Store you’ll find the Standard Edition. Remember, this isn’t playable until March 19th, but it does ‘only’ cost £59.99. 

If you want to play today – right now – then you’ll need to up the cash outlay. The MLB The Show 24 MVP Edition costs £69.99, providing early access as it goes. It also includes 10000 Stubs, 1 Diamond Choice Pack, 1 Equipment Pack, 10 The Show Packs, 1 Double Daily Reward and 1 Cover Athlete Bat Skin.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore.
