San Diego Studios seeks perfection beyond past PS3 installments by continuously generating new and better ways to play America's Pastime. The PS Vita version has limitations, but its performance more than justifies the comparative gripes to its console counterpart.
- Great new mode for new players
- Road to the Show changes aim to please
- Various additions further strengthen the franchise
- Some audio issues with new RttS features
- PS Vita version missing game modes
(continued from previous page) ...breaker for some. What makes this a baseball fan’s dream is that save files can still be transferred between both version of The Show, so you can play your Season, RttS player, and Franchise save files wherever you are.
Outside of the obvious visual differences between the two, the PS Vita version of The Show captures what the PS3 version can essentially do and puts it in a portable form that doesn’t cut any gameplay corners. Graphically, it looks a bit less detailed from last year’s portable version, but menus, loading, and gameplay are much smoother. San Diego Studios is still learning how to properly utilize Sony’s handheld, but it’s well on its way.
To consider the very, very few limitations left in this game is to look forward to the PlayStation 4 and think about exactly how great that game will look. Growth is incredibly limited in present hardware, and the only direction left is up. This time next year, we’ll have the first version of The Show on the PlayStation 4 (assumably, of course), and thinking of a better-looking game than what we have now is hard to consider. The only limitations left are in the crowd rendering and sound issues in RttS new features, but the PS Vita version still has room to grow. Graphics aside, the portable game has things well in hand, and the growth of the mobile version of The Show can only improve—it’s handled by San Diego Studios, after all.

@2 No, it's not, unfortunately.It's probably because the games don't have much cross-play interaction outside of save transfers and Home Run Derby, where other Cross-Buy titles can play together on both consoles.
