The Show 17 Make Good and Server Update

We take pride in developing and delivering an excellent gaming experience every year for our fans. This year is no different. Unfortunately, we’re less than happy with unexpected server issues that have accompanied the launch of MLB The Show 17 and know you are too – for this we apologize.

We’ve been working without pause to address a number of server and gameplay issues to restore the online experience we had hoped to achieve at launch. Some of these changes have been made visible to our community in the form of patches and in-game messages, while other upgrades haven’t been publicized, in the form of back end server updates.

We’re pleased to report that these updates have made great strides to address the main issues related to online gameplay and have led to an improved gameplay experience for our fans.

As a token of apology, as well as a thank you to our dedicated community for helping us identify these issues and for your patience as we’ve worked to address them, we are extending a make good to anyone who meets the criteria outlined below.

Every PSN ID which played The Show 17 between 3/28 at 12:01 am PT and May 11 at 1:00pm PT, will receive 10 Standard Packs and 11,000 Stubs automatically added to their account.  Please note that the make good will be deployed into all effected users account within a week.

Once again, we want to thank you for your passion and loyalty.

We’ll see you on the diamond!

    The servers are still crap. The game takes forever to load any little menu. And conquest games routinely go to queue hell. Honestly if this isn't definitively fixed, I want a refund not stubs or packs. A full blown refund, the game is flawed but the money i paid wasn't. I think everyone who paid needs to be louder and possibly see if Playstation store itself would give us a refund

    Truth is we will all be all right now matter what SDS does. If they don't consistently take care of atleast their core fan base they will suffer. Madden has felt this as well. These game developers are limited in when and what they can do we get that. However we need a plan to insure that most of  these problems are ironed out before the release. I'm sure there is hurdles SDS has to overcome just to get that done. Anyways all this crying and bitching is accomplishing nothing except stirring up censored. Be constructive with your criticisms and hold them and yourselves accountable for our actions. Mlb the show 17 is still really good it just has to be completed. I don't think SDS can do that 100% in the short turnaround every year.   Love Jeremy

    That was a complete rip off.  Everyone was right . I didn't even get one gold card in the whole 10 pack bundle.  And only 3 low silvers.

    Yet for the past 2 days, the game has been virtually unplayable because the servers are so old, slow, and overwhelmed.  It takes over a minute to load a screen. Forget trying to change my lineup and bench players,  that would literally take 20 minutes to do.  This is nuts,  guys. GET NEW SERVERS!!!!! Because 10 packs and 11K in stubs don't magically make the game playable.  Apologies and little offers to try to appease us is not going to work . Its time to bite the bullet and invest in new servers that can handle the activity.
