If you haven’t picked up what is arguably the best NBA game – neigh sports game of all time – for the PlayStation 3, you’re in luck. NBA 2K14, the generation defining title that outsold many blockbuster IPs this holiday is coming bundled with the only sports series to give it an overall run for its money – MLB: The Show.
On offer as an exclusive deal for the PlayStation 3, MLB 14: The Show is the next iteration of the definitive baseball title for PS3. As the first step into the next-generation of the series, MLB 14 will look to build on their already outstanding model by featuring year-to-year game saves. Throughout the remaining PS3 life cycle, if you purchase another MLB: The Show title, your seasons of work will not be lost, as MLB 15 will pick up where 14 left off. The Show 14 will also feature a unique trait – rewarding the player for having dedicated many hours to playing. With “STUBS”, those who play MLB 14: The Show will find themselves able to unlock DLC like “Road to the Show” training points that would normally be purchased through the PlayStation Store.
Given these unique traits, The Show should pair up nicely with the most eye-popping sports title to date in NBA 2K14. The price point should match up nicely with your expectations, as Sony revealed today.
Available together in PlayStation Sports Pack Vol. 1, launching exclusively for PS3 on April 1st for $89.99. These two titles represent the highest rated Baseball and Basketball franchises in the market over the last several years, and together are the spring’s must-have product for sports gamers.
The pack includes full versions of each game, as well as a bonus of $10 worth of in-game currency: 6000 STUBS for MLB 14 The Show and 20,000 Virtual Currency for NBA 2K14, bringing the total value to $129.99 worth of content for just $89.99.
