Sony Ending Online Support For MLB 14: The Show in June

That's shady as hell.

Sony is making a bad habit of ending online support for its the previous games in its franchises as soon as newer entries are released, in order to spur adoption of the new games. The most high profile example was probably the premature shutdown of online for Gran Turismo 5 to push Gran Turismo 6, but they have also made it a yearly habit to pull the plug for online support for MLB shortly after the previous one comes out.

And so it will be this year that online support for MLB 14: The Show will be ending on June 18, just three months after the launch of MLB 15: The Show, and 15 months after the launch of MLB 14. It’s shady and anti consumer, and frankly, Sony needs to be called out on it. Imagine if each year, Activision pulled the plug on online support for last year’s Call of Duty. Or if EA did that with FIFA. Or Nintendo with Pokemon. There would be riots.

The online support will be ending across PS3, PS4, and PS Vita. Frankly, this leaves such a sour taste in my mouth that I am in no mood to recommend MLB 15: The Show any longer.
