Back in the day, when baseball video games were as plentiful as Andrelton Simmons defensive highlights and all the players looked like colorful blobs who waddled around the field, we dreamed about the future and what our video games might look like. By, say, 2014, we figured we'd have video games that looked so real you could compare the players' beards.
The future is here, it seems.
PlayStation has unveiled the trailer for the PS4 version of "MLB The Show 14," the next-generation of the game on Sony's powerful new platform. This version hits stores May 6. The PS3 and PlayStation Vita versions of the game launched around opening day, but we've seen "MLB The Show" on those before.
What people really wanted to see was how life-like the PS4 version of "The Show" would look. As you can see above, it looks pretty darn stunning. From Jayson Werth's beard to Andrew McCutchen dreads to Yasiel Puig's glare, the details are rich.
We've come a long way, baseball gamers. Enjoy it.
