RBI Baseball 14 isn't exclusive to Xbone, it's also available on 360, Ps3, Ps4 and mobile. Lemmings may consider it an xbone exclusive since they've been hiding behind multiplatform for 2 gen straight.

and isn't MLB 14 also on Ps3?

But do either of those two games stack up to Out of the Park Baseball?

Yes, but Sony is creating it as a next generation exclusive in the development process which is why it is releasing later than last gen version.

Truly a GOAT game.

The screenshot wasn't taken from those versions though. Just like that MLB picture wasn't taken from the PS Vita or PS3

Actually that's not entirely true, the reason why mlb 2k died, was due to it's sales

MLB 14 the show outsold it by 5x and it was a PS3 exclusive, that's how bad MLB2k sales were.

Umm nowhere does it say those RBI baseball shots are from Xbox One and the game is a mobile/XBL/PSN game it's not comparable to MLB The Show.

You do realize that the sales of The Show have been down the last 3 years? That's why EA has no interest in returning to the diamond.

First, multiplatform vs exclusive. Its easier make it on exclusive, more time to develope, more and better focus.

Second, who the fuck cares about baseball games?

I do, for one. And MLB the Show remains the best baseball franchise out there. Although with the lack of competition now, I hope they do not fall into decline with minimal updates/upgrades.

I haven't played an RBI baseball game since NES. Weren't they made with those weird non licensed Nintendo cartridges? Anyways, I wasn't expecting any non exclusive baseball game this year since 2k made the announcement. So, I'm not surprised at the bad graphics.

Who cares about baseball in the first place?

Baseball is my favorite sport. :)

What if the game releases looking like that or better? MLB The Show looked damn good last gen and this doesn't look impossible on PS4.

I can't wait to get my hands on MLB The Show, IGN is already claiming it to be the best looking game for the PS4!

It's Sony exclusive.

Just like Titanfall is exclusive since you can't play it on the X1

#24 Posted by StrongBlackVine (8403 posts) -

Will be buying MLB The Show 14. Highest rated sports franchise in the last decade.

Yup. THE true baseball experience can only be found on SONY. I'm getting the PS4 version day 1 and going to try and beat @TheEroica :D

#26 Posted by kingjazziephiz (2371 posts) -

RBI Baseball is a pretty fun baseball series... So I might get both

#27 Posted by lhughey (4221 posts) -

That's great and all, but I wanna know if RBI has Bo Jackson.

I picked up '13 for the Vita and PS3.

#29 Posted by ankor77 (932 posts) -

I will be picking up The show when it comes out. Dissapointed its later for PS4 as it always helps me get excited for the coming season. By the time the game comes out my Mets will be dead in the water already.

That being said, I can't expect much from RBI baseball this year. How long has it been in development? Wasn't it thrown together last minute when they cancelled MLB2K?

Damn, both? Moneyman. How did the Vita version hold up?

Well I was deployed so I needed something to play ha, I was blown away by how good the Vita version looked and played compared to the PS3 ... it chugs from time to time but overall pretty damn good version.

#32 Posted by UnbiasedPoster (629 posts) -

It's a $15 downloadable game, for those who were wondering.

#33 Posted by handssss (1635 posts) -

sports games I've never been THAT into, but I remember MLB was the one of the first things I got for the psp and I played the hell out of that. I think that was before they started calling the franchise "The Show" as well. The games look good and honestly baseball isn't too bad for me. Of course, it helps my home team doesn't flat out suck anymore. (Rays)

@Sweenix:

LOL, that is funny TC. I was happy to hear the name RBI baseball again, but man, those screen shots are a joke.

Well that explains the graphics, somewhat. I wouldn't pay $15 for that though.

No but Deion Sanders and Michael Jordan is.

We need to that System Wars league if enough people want in. I called Red Sox some months back, but now I'm thinking maybe the hometown Braves. Still Red Sox as of now for any lurkers.

I'm glad you finally dropped all pretenses of being unbiased with your recent activity here(not this post but it was the easiest to quote). You are a proper lemming now.

#39 Edited by WitIsWisdom (3633 posts) -

Has nobody ever played the RBI baseball franchise? It is fun... period... unrealistic and fun. Then there is The Show.. it is more realistic and fun. Both= fun. Both= different. I will undoubtedly be getting BOTH. Game on.

By the way I call dibs on the Cubs. Not that anybody else was going to call them anyways... but with their prospects they are looking good.

No. Never in a million years. As much as I love the MLB The Show franchise, no other baseball game even comes close to OOTP in terms of depth, immersion & customization.

I guess I'd be saying the same thing if I was posting from an alternate universe where the PC didn't exist, too.

@StrongBlackVine: Im in... I call my yankees. Crushing red sox souls will be utmost importance.

#43 Posted by TheEroica (13019 posts) -

Just read this thread... wow, are people really thinking that because of the graphics, the show will be the better game? That's laughable, especially when speaking about a sports game like baseball. MVP2005 is still a better baseball game than all of the show offering in the franchises history... In fact, the show basically stripped the ideas of MVP and incorporated them into their own... If RBI goes for a slightly more arcade type approach while still staying faithful to teams, players and depth, while avoiding the ridiculous broadcast annoyances and cut aways that bog down the pace and flow of modern day baseball video games, I'd rather have that.... I'll be buying the show on day 1 without a doubt, but if a baseball games worth is dropped to the depth of how many chin whiskers are rendered on a players face, I'll simply pass.

#44 Posted by EnviousEyezOnMe (258 posts) -

That's what we really need....MVP Baseball. I was stuck last gen buying The Show due to the fact that it was the best baseball game out there, meanwhile all my friends had X360's, so no mp. I refused to buy 2K baseball games last gen.

#45 Posted by Ghost120x (3650 posts) -

Wonder if the vita version will be any good. A baseball game on the go sounds pretty sweet.

#46 Posted by LanceX2 (305 posts) -

TC....your dumb

#47 Posted by santoron (7448 posts) -

I'll prolly get both. RBI looks great for when you just want an Arcade style quick game with friends, and The Show is a great franchise for when you're wanting more depth.

Keep grasping cows

#49 Posted by IMAHAPYHIPPO (2537 posts) -

I'm sure this has been said, but I'm not reading through this silly of a topic. MLB the Show is a 60$ AAA title, while RBI Baseball is a budget game that will cost somewhere in the range of 14.99$.

except The Show 13 wasn't exclusive.. I'm imagining that's the one you were talking about, cuz 14 hasn't come out yet.
