MLB The Show 22 Sounds of the Show Exclusive to PS4 Version; FAQ Released

MLB The Show fans out there that were hoping to use their own music in-game via Sounds of the Show may be saddened to hear that the feature will be exclusive to the PS4 yet again this year. Yes, the MLB The Show 22 Sounds of the Show will only be available to the last-gen PlayStation version.

In a new update to the official MLB The Show FAQ, Sony San Diego Studio confirmed that once again Sounds of the Show will only be available on the PS4. This includes exclusion from the PS5 version, as well as the Xbox One & Series and newly announced Switch version.

Sounds of the Show is only available on PlayStation 4 consoles. On all other consoles, players will have 3 slots to set the Walk-Up music, 1 slot to set the Home Run celebration, and 3 slots for Pitcher Entry music. Players will not be able to upload your own music on PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox X|S, and Nintendo Switch.

Now, do note that this was the same as last year’s iteration. However, with both the PS5 and Xbox consoles capable of reading music off a USB, one has to wonder what prompted the removal from these versions. MLB The Show 20, for example, supports this feature on the PS4, and although there is no native PS5 release, you can play the game via backwards compatibility with Sounds of the Show being accessible this way on the PS5. This meaning that the functionality does work in some capacity on the PS5, even if it’s via an older release.

Sadly, it seems that users will have to once again use Spotify, though as far as creativity and functionality goes, anyone who has used the feature before know it just isn’t the same.

As for the rest of the FAQ, you can read up on some of major questions answered below, or read the full page.
