Jose Bautista at the MLB 12 The Show PR Event

Splash MM was at the PlayStation Lounge located at the EB Games near the corner of Yonge and Dundas in downtown Toronto for the media launch of MLB 12 The Show. Jose Bautista of the Toronto Blue Jays was on site as the poster boy for this year’s game cover.

The PlayStation Lounge was virtually transformed into a ball park fashioned with baseball jerseys, hats, bats, posters and even a real hot dog stand. MLB 12 The Show was being previewed on the PS Vita, the PS3 and the PS Move, with the Move set up in front of a home plate for a real life feeling of stepping into the batter’s box in the big leagues.

Jose Bautista was on hand to promote the new title, signing autographs and conducting interviews. He also stepped up to the plate competing in a home run derby on the PS Move where he demonstrated the realism of the actions and mannerisms of the virtual players. Jose was presented with a custom MLB 12 The Show PlayStation pack which included a custom designed PS3 and PS Vita along with copies of the game.
