Buster Posey just won the World Series and was named NL MVP. Is the cover of “MLB 13: The Show” next on the catcher’s bucket list?
Looks like Buster’s ability to pose for the cover shot is now in the hands of video game and baseball fans, as Sony announced plans to let the people decide the fate of the game's box via online cover vote.
Rumored candidates include Posey, Miguel Cabrera, Matt Kemp, and Andrew McCutchen, with more names to be announced in the near future.
In addition to the cover announcement, Sony also leaked a few of “MLB 13’s” newest features, including an all-new "playoff" mode promising heightened in-stadium atmosphere, as well as a new beginner mode that will help ease in first-time players to the franchise and its somewhat intimidating list of button commands and abilities. Sony also boasts about an improved "play now" experience, including a more streamlined and faster-playing game.
“MLB 13” will ship for the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita on March 5, 2013.
