MLB 14 digital still not available on PS4

MLB 14: The Show finally launched on PlayStation 4 on Tuesday. However, it appears that only those with physical copies of the game are being able to enjoy the first only next-gen baseball game on the market.

Multiple users are reporting that, though being promised a download time on 12:01am ET, MLB 14: The Show is still unavailable to users for download as of 8:30am ET. This has led numerous users to vent their frustrations on social media.


The game’s official Twitter page is adamant that they are working to solve the problem. That being said, when you promise someone Day 1 Digital and have extra time to prepare for this release, there should be absolutely no reason why fans can’t get their digital hands on a copy of the game.

According to some players who have reached out to us, they haven’t even been told whether or not they can get refunds for their digital purchase. If you are having trouble with MLB 14, please contact us on Twitter @FanSidedTech, and let us know about the problems you are having.

    I was told later today it would be available. I called Sony. My main problem was that while in the store online(normally I would buy through my PS4) last night, to see if I could add MLB to my download que, I pre-ordered Watch_dogs…for the PS3!!!
    Anyway, they said they will refund that to my wallet so I can buy the PS4 version, and that The Show will be available this evening after the store updates.

    UPDATE… I can now download MLB:The Show on PS4.

    While I so think Sony kinda dropped the ball here, I don’t think they did as much as someone who may have got a refund and then went and bought a hard copy. I have adjusted to not having to swap discs, and haven’t had any problems until now with digital. That’s why I went ahead and ordered Watch_Dogs. My mistake on the PS3 version, but Sony will put that back in my wallet towards my PS4 version. Or so they have said.

      Another update. It just finished installing. I could use some of the features about 30 mins after it downloaded, but it just finished it’s complete install. I pretty much left it on the title/demo mode while it installed.
      So that was a little over 3 hours all together.
