    In following an update that included some massive shifts in ratings this week's changes in MLB The Show 16 don't come across quite as impactful. No players were bumped to reach the Gold or Diamond tiers, and only one player fell out of the latter and into the former.  (more…)...
  • Concerns over recent MLB The Show 16 account bannings being investigated

    On Monday a fairly large number of accounts were banned in MLB The Show 16. Typically wiping out cheaters would be a good thing, creating a level playing field for those who are competing within the rules - but the situation wasn't nearly as simple at that. It quickly became apparent that something might be amiss with some people possibly being unjustifiably banned. After initially saying they would be not be reevaluating anyone's status, and being abrasive in their responses to any an...
  • Wave of MLB The Show 16 bannings has created more questions than answers

    Just a few days ago Sony San Diego reiterated a policy that has always been effect for account suspensions and bans relating to MLB The Show 16. This of course is all completely reasonable. Basically every online video game has a similar TOS in place and it's just a matter of how violations are ultimately acted upon. Yesterday though a mass banning apparently took place as users took to social media and forums to express frustration and seek answers. They're finding plenty of the former...

    The latest roster update for MLB The Show 16 looks to be a course correction for a number of players who have disappointed this season or are far exceeding expectations. There are also some new cards for Diamond Dynasty that will be among the most desired in the mode. Giancarlo Stanton has plummeted going down 6 points to 87 Overall. What had been an excessively overdue need for a change to his ratings, which hadn't been touched at all this season, was pointed out last week. It's a crushi...

    It's starting to become a little more difficult to determine exactly what's going on with the roster updates to MLB The Show 16. There are players who have clearly needed to drop for a long time who haven't, and others who long ago earned upgrades but continue to be ignored. One example of the former is Giancarlo Stanton. He has remained at 93 Overall all season despite batting .193 and he's getting worse by the month. He hit .173 in May and .116 through the first half of June. Someon...

    The latest roster update has just gone out for MLB The Show 16. In moving up 3 points to 87 Overall, Corey Seager is one of the big winners this week. He's batting .283 with 14 HR on the year and has been given boosts of 14 to Clutch, 12 to Power vs Righties, and 6 to both Contact vs Lefties and Power vs Righties. The increases haven't been limited to when he's at the plate though, as he's also gone up 9 in Arm Strength, 8 in Arm Accuracy, and 3 in Fielding. Evan Longoria has also recei...

    While there are unfortunately no new Flashback cards being introduced this week, the latest limited-time Diamond Dynasty card pack in MLB The Show 16 includes six players - three of which come from a pool comprised of the best performers from the month of May. At 2,500 Stubs each, are these Players of the Month packs a good investment vs standard packs of spending in the Marketplace? Here's a look at what I got with the four that were purchased....

    There's lots of ratings movement in today's roster update for MLB The Show 16. Bryce Harper is the highest rated player to be adjusted, and after reaching peak 99 Overall just one month ago he's now down to 97. He hit just .200 in the month of May and his Contact ratings in the game have suffered for it. Meanwhile Dodgers phenom pitcher Julio Urias has been added to the game and is rated 75 with A Potential. Other players taking ratings hits this week include David Price (-1 to 93), Feli...
