MLB 11: The Show’s Challenge of the Week Returns from PSN Purgatory

MLB 11: The Show’s Challenge of the Week contest is officially back. Check out the details after the jump.

Ramone Russell, Community Manager for SCEA San Diego Studios, made a visit to the PS Blog and gave us the low down on the showdown.

We apologize for the inconvenience the PlayStation Network outage may have caused. As a result of the recent events, we have had to make changes to the MLB 11 The Show – Challenge of the Week competition. The Month 2 (April) competition will be cut short and will comprise of 3 weeks: week 5, 6 and some of week 7. Week 8 will be omitted from Month 2 (April) entirely. Month 3 (May) will also be cut short, weeks 9 and 10 will be omitted. Month 3 (May) will now comprise of 2 weeks – week 11 (May 16 – May 23) and week 12 (May 23 – May 30). Week’s 8, 9 and 10 have been omitted from the Challenge of the Week competition, entirely.


We thank you for your patience and understanding. Please post a reply at the community site – if you have any questions.
