    Today the first roster update for MLB The Show 16 went out and it includes many of the rookies that have made their debut early in the season. There are no ratings changes - no need to overreact to a handful of games' worth of data - with the update focusing instead on the new players and any other transactions that have taken place. This roster update is highly anticipated for the addition of players like Trevor Story, Byung Ho Park, Kenta Maeda, and Ross Stripling. Story set the recor...

    Despite multiple server-side updates and a patch, MLB The Show 16 has continued to suffer from online-related issues. Whether it be menu slowdown due to the servers, or an inability to get online games started or completed, the situation has seemingly not improved and in some ways only worsened. Sony San Diego released a statement this evening that work on another emergency patch is ongoing and could release in the "coming days." We are aware of and continue to track and investigate issue...

    Last year Diamond Dynasty really came into its own as arguably the best of the team-building modes within the sports gaming genre. What it lacked was variety - both in team construction and methods of play - and those issues have been tackled well with MLB The Show 16. The most popular way to play right now based on the results of multiple polls is against the CPU. That comes as somewhat of a surprise considering the always-connected mode was built on head-to-head online competition. How...

    Yesterday Sony San Diego released a server-side update that fixed some online related issues with MLB The Show 16. What it did not do, however, was address the biggest problem the game is facing right now as it buckles under the server load being faced in primetime hours running from about 3PT-10PT every day. Yesterday offered up the worst experience yet. MLB The Show 16 was essentially rendered completely unplayable unless disconnecting entirely from the internet before starting it up...

    An update that went out server-side overnight in MLB The Show 16 has addressed the inability to complete Conquest mode. Up until now players could take over the entire board but would not receive acknowledgement of successfully finishing the campaign. A few other changes were made with the update and initially that included no longer being able to feed unsellable cards to Diamond Dynasty players. It appears backlash to that news caused a reversal to the decision and they remain feed-able....

    Last year Diamond Dynasty was turned into one of the more compelling team-building modes in all of sports gaming even surprising with a Community Award here for the category. In MLB The Show 16 the experience has been expanded upon with the addition of two brand new ways to play. There's Battle Royale which features a draft and then three inning games online with increasing rewards at stake, and Conquest which is single-player and incorporates building a fan base while conquering the territo...
