Here at insidesportsgeeks, we love discussing about sports video game cover arts. We even created a sister site years back (don’t bother checking, it hasn’t been updated) at artofsportscovers.blogspot.com .
On Thusday, US Playstation blog announced their MLB 11 The Show cover athlete and its no other than Joe Mauer, catcher for the Minnesota Twins. Mauer posted a .327 batting average, along with 9 HRs, 75 RBIs and 88 runs scored. This is the second time Mauer has grace the cover. Sony also announced a new DualShock 3 controller – MLB 11 The Show Edition, will be out March 8th to coincide with the release of the game and will retail for $54.99.
Loving the background and detail on the yarn. Nice placement on the Playstation Move compatible sticker (wonder if 2K is implementing this on their PS3 or Kinect on Xbox 360 version). And the image of Mauer – is it me but it doesn’t look like him. I think the beard is throwing me off. 🙂
What’s your take on the new MLB 11 The Show cover art? Do you agree/disagree, post your answer(s) on the comment section. Thanks.
