Don’t Pre-Order If You’re Worried About Bugs
New MLB The Show games usually launch bug-free, but don’t count on that. Surprise bugs and problems have unexpectedly ruined the game launches of other titles before.
If you skip pre-ordering MLB The Show 18, you don’t need to care about release day problems. Pick up the game on release day once you’ve confirmed there aren’t any issues with friends on Twitter, Facebook and the game’s forum. If issues do turn up on release day, you haven’t spent any money. Wait until Sony fixes those problems to buy.
