That's fantastic, I predicted this would happen years ago but not under Sony. I thought EA or 2K would take over.

My logic was this is a strong series but doesent sell well enough. Its one of the the lower selling annual sports games.

Should be good sales given Xbox is popular in the US and this series only sells well in the US.

It only releases in the U.S. and Australia. Which baffles me because baseball is the most popular sport in Japan. They have their own professional league that does extremely well. I'm not sure how popular Major League Baseball is over there, but I'd think The Show could sell respectably well if they released there.

Well they did technically release The Show in Japan, although it is just a lazy release. By that I mean it is just the English version of the game and they didn’t translate anything into Japanese.

If the goal is to increase software sales, which is a motivation of going multiplat, that's about the fucking worse idea ever.

Maybe Sony can pay themselves for timed exclusivity?

Instead, maybe Sony should pay themselves to get DLC, missions and armor earlier than other platforms.

OR MAYBE, they should just release the game as a multiplat and be happy with all the extra money they make from that. Sounds crazy, but I think it could work.

There is absolutely no way to decrease SW sales, save make a shitty product.  As I mentioned above, Sony's is the only MLB game on the market.  If Nintendo or MS fans want a MLB game, they'll have to get Sony's.  Doing timed exclusivity for a few months would definitely help push their own console sales and probably wouldn't hurt the mutiplat sales much.  Of course, like I also mentioned above, not saying they will go down that path.  Just a possibility.

No, I'm saying the goal is the increase sales, that's why its going multiplat. Your suggestion of timed exclusivity may hurt sales.

Not sure if The Show is a system seller, certainly not nearly as significant as other Playstation exclusives. Also the game's release coincides with the season. It sounds like you agree that timed exclusivity may deter some sales.

Microsoft giving games to other consoles, now Sony, I almost feel like Nintendo should also give a little to the other and join this merry band of harmony.

I know it won't happen, but can you imagine a Zelda game using the PS5 to its fullest?

I imagine it would look good, but I wasn’t really thinking about something that extreme lol.
