Excellent news, although the series has felt tired the last 2-3 years. Probably both Sony and MLB started to see diminishing returns without going to a larger user base.

The date of 2021 is interesting. Translation: one more round on PS4 and then cross platform for the next gen into 2021 and beyond.

Just 2-3 years? There haven't been any significant upgrades for a decade (outside of improved graphics). Mechanics, animation, and glitches are largely the same.

Yeah, I miss Triple Play by EA Sports back in PSOne days.

Might as well start when the new gen consoles come out. I'm assuming it will be easy to port PS version to Xbox.

I can't wait, as I purchased a PS3 and PS4 primarily to play MLB.

Same here, well a PS4 at least. I'd prefer getting an Xbox for the next gen.

Same with me, this and spiderman have been the only games I play on ps4; I would rather have it on xbox due to my friends all being xbox gamers

I have not cared to play an MLB game in a long time... But if they ever resurrect Base Wars, count me in

I am happy about this. Only reason I bought a PS4 was for MLB the show. Although I have lost interest year over year, I still buy the game when I can get it for cheap.

Damn. Kinda. I just got a good deal on PS4 just to play The show mainly. Oh well. I also have an Xbox.

Xbox version won't be launched until 2021 anyways, so you have another year to enjoy the PS4!

One of the main reasons I gave up on Xbox was the lack of baseball.

I may go back to Xbox next time around!

First thing i'm gonna do is exhibition game as the Asterisks vs the Yanks, game mode easy, guess pitch on, Altuve at the plate, buzzer heaven. Can't wait!

This is huge for me. I love baseball games but prefer gaming on Xbox and sadly Xbox doesn't have anything worth a damn for baseball. MLB The Show is the best baseball game I've ever played so for it to be coming to Xbox in the future makes me extremely happy.
