Sony says sorry, offers vouchers, for MLB 14 digital download delay

Downloads of the digital edition of MLB 14 The Show on PlayStation 4 were delayed 14 hours past the game's expected launch on Tuesday, and Sony has apologized to fans, offering vouchers for their inconvenience.

Operation Sports reports that on Thursday, emails were being sent to those who preordered the game but were unable to start downloading it until about  2 p.m. ET on Tuesday. Sony included two codes, one for $5 to be spent on the PlayStation Store, and another for 6,000 "Stubs," the in-game currency MLB The Show introduced this year to buy perks in the game's career modes. The Stubs are also valued at $4.99.

The 37.5 GB download of MLB 14 The Show on PS4 was delayed "due to unforeseen technical issues," Sony said at the time. The series' online feature set also was bothered by connection problems throughout its launch, as was its PS3 predecessor in April.
