The 2010 season was an incredible year for San Francisco Giants catcher Buster Posey. That year Posey got called up to the majors, notched his first big league hit, became a World Series champion and then was named the National League Rookie of the Year.
Sony and Posey team up to create one of the best promos I’ve ever seen for a video game. MLB 12 The Show is now available.
Bernard Tomic grew upset with a spectator during his loss to David Ferrer at the Sony Ericsson Open in Miami and that spectator happened to be his father and coach, John Tomic.
Between games during the second set, the 19-year-old asked chair umpire Cedric Mourier to remove his father from the stands.
“He’s annoying me,” Tomic said. “I know he’s my father, but he’s annoying me. I want him to leave, but how is that possible?”
According to a blog posted by Sony’s Senior Vice President, Business Development Philip Rosenberg, the NFL Sunday Ticket will now be available on the PS3 including those without DirecTV. Here’s the press statement released on the blog:
“We are excited to announce that PlayStation has partnered with DirectTV to bring its popular sports subscription service, NFL Sunday Ticket, to the PlayStation 3 game console. PlayStation owners across the country will now have the opportunity to watch every out-of-market Sunday game on their PS3.”
“How do you get in the game? At the start of the season, viewers who do not currently have access to DirecTV will be able to subscribe to NFL Sunday Ticket at the season price of $339.95. Existing DirecTV customers can access the service on their PS3 for an additional $50 and use the PS3 as an additional receiver for your home.”
MLB.TV and NHL GameCenter have already been available on the Sony Network and PS3 so it only seemed fitting the that the biggest money maker in professional sports find it’s way to the best gaming console.
I’m a PS3 guy myself, but the player control functions demonstrated on the Xbox 360 still look pretty ridiculous. Not only can you cross fools over at will, but you can also pull off behind the back dribble moves, in and outs and you can attack the bucket with your players signature gather move.
Sony sent a customized PS3 to United States Olympic speed skating champion Apolo Anton Ohno making it one of the hottest to sit under a TV console. The customized name sprawling across the top followed by the number 8, for the number of Olympic medals he won, has definitely set this PS3 apart from yours and mine.
Sony will start streaming live Major League Baseball games onto PlayStation 3 consoles.
By the end of the week Americans will be able to turn on their PS3, sign up to the league’s MLB.TV service, and watch “out of market” games over the PlayStation Network. There will be the subscription fee that comes with MLB.TV, depending on the package you select it will either run $100 for the standard or $120 for a premium package.
Compared to watching games on your iPhone or your desktop you will be able to stream the live games to your big screen TV this is a great deal. Sony and MLB deal mark the first adventure of any of the major sports.
