This year's edition of MLB The Show looks fantastic. Sporting a bevy of features on both PS3 and PSP, The Show looks to be this year's most comprehensive sports game. For example, both the PS3 and PSP version support custom soundtracks, as demonstrated in this new post.

We hope you really like Ryan Howard, because our updated gallery of MLB 08 The Show is a virtual shrine to him. The Phillies first baseman was selected as the cover man of SCEA's upcoming baseball game. It will be his first time appearing on the cover of a video game.

"Ryan Howard's personality and work ethic exemplify what our baseball franchise is all about and we are thrilled he has chosen to represent MLB 08 THE SHOW," said Scott Steinberg, vice president, product marketing, SCEA. "Howard has worked hard to establish himself as one of the most exciting players in the game and we look forward to him continuing the tradition of MLB THE SHOW athletes having amazing years while being featured on the cover of our game."

The PSP version of MLB 08 is no slouch. Just like its PS3 brethren, it sports one of the longest list of features we've ever seen for a game, regardless of genre. The massive fact sheet released today has us scratching our heads in bewilderment, so much so that we simply had to provide you the entire list (after the break). The PSP version has a number of features, including the ability to set up online leagues, infrastructure and ad-hoc multiplayer, a number of mini-games, and integration with

The game will be available on PS3, PS2 and PSP this Spring. Check out the first PSP images in our new gallery.

Top 5 on PSP: Sports

The PSP has been near the top of the sales charts recently and I figured some new PSP owners may not be up to know what great games the system has to offer. With that in mind, every day this week we'll feature a new genre and list the top 5 games (according to metareviews), so no matter what you're into, you'll have some idea of what games you should own. Today the focus is on Sports games and there were so many games tied in this genre that I'd end up with a list of 16 games if I listed all the tied games as equals in rank. With that in mind, I made an executive decision and today going forward with this feature I'll list the top 5 based on Metareview and I'll use reader reviews to sort through ties.

Top 5 Sports games on PSP

  1. Virtua Tennis World Tour
  2. Tony Hawk's Underground 2 Remix
  3. MLB 06: The Show
  4. Winning Eleven: Pro Evolution Soccer 2007
  5. Hot Shots Golf: Open Tee

I don't play sports games, so I'm not sure if this list is accurate to the average sports fan. What do you think about these 5 games? What sports games aren't on this list that you think every PSP owner should have?

Deal of the Day: MLB 06: The Show $20 at

Deal of the Day: MLB 06: The Show $20 at Bestbuy.comIf baseball on the go is your bag, then I have pretty darn good deal for you. is offering MLB 06: The Show for only $20.

Now I haven't played the game before, so I can't personally vouch for it, but it currently holds an 83 at Metacritic. And for comparison's sake, Gamestop sells the game new for $30 and used for $25; however, it is currently backordered.

Metareview - MLB '06: The Show

Baseball means exactly two things to me: beer and hotdogs. Sure, there's a lot to be said for homers and Nomer and steroid-munching athletes with freakish media manners, but it's all about the vittles for me.

For everyone else, especially the ones who can answer questions like "who was the first baseball player to be ejected from a game for throwing a spitball?*", there's MLB '06: The Show. They should be happy too, because apparently the game is pretty darned good. A solid presentation, matched with a some new game modes and glitch fixes, make this portable baseball title a homerun, rain or shine.

IGN [8.3] - "MLB '06: The Show for the PSP is a step forward from last year's bare bones port...The Rivalry mode from the PS2 should've been included as a multiplayer option, which is a definite strike against the game, and the relative bugs that are fixed from last year are decent but inconsistent. These issues aside, MLB '06 is arguably one of the best sports titles on the PSP."

GameDaily [4 of 5] - "[MLB '06: The Show] is the best damn sports game that I have ever played on a hand held system, a title that begs to be purchased and loved into the wee hours of the morning."

GameZone Online [8.5] - "MLB '06: The Show feels like a more complete version of last year's game so if you missed that one you seriously should consider buying this one right away."

MLB '06 headed to PSP

MLBSony just announced that an electronic version of America's Pastime in the form of MLB '06 will land on the PSP sometime this Spring.
"The all-new Rivalry Mode allows players to set up and maintain multi-game rivalries, while tracking stats for the life of the rivalry. For baseball fans seeking to master the art of pitching and batting, the innovative King of the Diamond Mode brings players a classic playground duel where a pitcher and batter from opposing teams square off in a head-to-head mini game that showcases the intensity of the duel."
Batters up!
