It’s that time of year again! The countdown to MLB The Show 23 on PS5, PS4 begins



You can set your watch to the next MLB The Show game, and alarmingly it’s that time of year already!

It will also be interesting to see if PC is included as an additional platform this season. MLB The Show 21 added Xbox consoles to the release roster last year, with the addition of the Nintendo Switch.

While the series is consistently excellent, we can’t shake the feeling that things have been stalling just a touch in recent years.

But first, he reveals the cover!
