  • Summary: SCEA's baseball series heads back on the field with another solid outing.

  • Excerpt: Sadly -- and oddly considering the day, the age and the state-of-the-art --, MLB 07 The Show for PSP has some major league frame-rate issues, making what could have been a great baseball game in your pocket practically unplayable. If you expect to get what you pay for, don't look here.
