New Features

PlayStation 3

MLB 11: The Show features the Pure Analog Control System, which includes analog controls for hitting, pitching, and fielding. Pure Hitting allows the player to stride and swing using the Right Analog Stick, Pure Pitching functionality incorporates a new Pitch Meter when setting strength and location, and Pure Throwing can be used to make defensive throws by simply pointing the Right Analog Stick in the direction of the base, also allowing for fake throws to keep runners honest.

The Co-op Mode allows up to four-player offline or online cooperative play where players can split duties covering either the infield or outfield, while also switching off at the plate or choosing the specific batters they’d like to control. Users can play 1 vs. 2, 2 vs. 2, or 2 vs. CPU. There is also a Challenge of the Week online feature, which will include 2-3 minute single player online gameplay, which will be supported by leader boards and prizes awarded in three tiers.

The fifth generation of Road to The Show adds a new interactive slider set to the Create Player process, new training modes triggered by the Player Performance Evaluator, Minor League substitution logic improvements, advancement system improvements that now compares a player's stats to their competition in the organization, and the new No Assist Fielding option.

MLB 11: The Show also includes stereoscopic 3D functionality, a customizable camera editor, stadium specific broadcast camera angles for all 30 MLB teams, new weather elements, stadium specific Jumbotrons and fireworks, and PlayStation Move motion controller support for the Home Run Derby mode.

PlayStation 2

The PlayStation 2 version will also feature co-op play and updated rosters, but will not receive the updated Road to the Show, analog control or the Challenge of the Week feature. The controls stay the same as MLB 10: The Show's and Road to the Show continues with the advancement goals and in-game goals. Also Eric Karros will not be replacing Rex Hudler in the PlayStation 2 version.

PlayStation Portable

The PlayStation Portable version will feature tweaked artificial intelligence, the updated Road to the Show, revamped animation, and a Rivalry Mode, as well as updated rosters.

Cover athlete

For the second year in a row, Minnesota Twins catcher Joe Mauer is the cover athlete.[1] In 2012 he will be replaced by Adrian Gonzalez.[2]

Demo

A demo was released on February 22, featuring a minimum four inning day game rematch of 2010 World Series (game can go into extra innings), between the Texas Rangers and San Francisco Giants at AT&T Park. [1]
