Press Row Hangout Clip – On The Eve of MLB 14: The Show’s First Releases
With MLB 14: The Show arriving on Tuesday for the PS3 and Vita this extended segment from the latest Press Row Hangout includes some of the hottest topics related to the game as it heads into its release. The decision not to release a demo on the PS3, the lack of any "trade-up" promotion for those with both the PS3 and PS4, and initial assessments of the Quick Counts feature after seeing it in action are all discussed.
EA Sports UFC Won’t Offer The Ability To Share Created Fighters
In an interview with MMA Junkie, EA Sports has confirmed there will be no "Fighter Share" feature in the upcoming launch of the UFC franchise. This deviates from the company's boxing games which have included the ability to create fighters and even use Game Face - which allows for taking actual photographs to craft a likeness - with the ability to upload the finished products for others to retrieve through "Boxer Share".

Start of Madden NFL 15 Promotion Has Slipped Well Beyond The Cycle Norm
Usually by this point in the year not only has the upcoming Madden been officially "announced" but the marketing cycle kicked off with cover related activities.

MLB 14: The Show PS3 Gameplay Video Featuring Quick Counts
Earlier this week the top rated players for MLB 14: The Show were revealed thanks to a consumer with hands on an early PS3 copy. Now the first extended gameplay can be watched and it utilizes the optional new Quick Counts feature that generates them rather than starting with a fresh slate. In theory that will lead to more realistic walk and strikeout numbers and at the same time reduce the length of time it takes to play games.
The video features Cardinals at Red Sox for a single inning t...
More on EA Sports UFC Gameplay Features
At last June's E3 eight core gameplay features were revealed by EA Sports for their first UFC title.

A trailer was recently released going over many of those same concepts and now more detailed descriptions of those areas have been provided.Â (more…)...

Top Rated Players in MLB 14: The Show
While SCEA has generally not released player ratings as a form of promoting The Show consumers who have gotten their hands on the game early have gone about exposing the ratings instead. That's happened again this year as a member of Operation Sports has provided screenshots of the top rated players at each position for MLB 14: The Show.
Last year MLB 13 featured 17 players rated 99 overall - which was actually down from an absurd 44 with MLB 12 - and 99 total players coming in 90 or high...
Presentation Improvements for 2014 FIFA World Cup
EA Sports recently went further into presentation elements of the upcoming 2014 FIFA World Cup to go along with gameplay advancements and the central modes. The atmosphere of the World Cup games have always been fantastic and that looks to continue with the latest edition even though it didn't make it on to the new systems.Â (more…)...
