Interesting choice. I think this is the first non-current player to be on the cover of a baseball videogame. Wonder what this means for game modes.

It's not going to mean a damn thing. Now that they have a Hall-of-Famer on the cover of the game they got a reason to jack the price up five to ten dollars.

It's actually 20% off with amazon prime. I guess that also worries me. I don't really expect drastic changes on a game starting at $48.

That really doesn't tell me anything. Not everyone has Amazon Prime to take advantage of that.

True.  But 1/5 adults does which is roughly 54 million people.

Haters gonna hate... lol.. I guess anything right now is just speculation anyway. Awesome cover, I love me some Griffey.

It's a placeholder price, and I assume someone else was going to be the cover athlete if it wasn't Griffey, but Nintendo selling off their share of the Seattle Mariners gave SIE San Diego an out to get Griffey ;)

I'll go for that.

And incidentally I am not a "hater" to the MLB The Show game. I was just pointing something out that just may come true once this game is finally released and that is it would not shock me one bit to see if a few extra bucks are tacked on just because Griffey's mug is on the cover. If that the definition of hating then consider me guilty as charged but also consider the source.

not really considering you get the steel book, a hat, and the millions of extra bonus in game content that they are just probably gonna sell with micro transactions in game.  A lot of people spend money on stubs for the card collections in game whether it be this, madden, fifa, nhl, etc

and since the hat is limited edition, i wouldn't be surprised if people sell those online for 40 or 50 dollars.  Make half the money back right there

Nope.  Im just seeing things for the way they are and not being salty because "I still play a game from 2005 and the world is evolving around me"

Edit: I also dont post pointless nonsense  on every topic just to pad my post numbers
