  • Inside Edge helping to make Diamond Dynasty a mode for everyone
    Posted April 28th, 2016 at 8:00 am 1 Comment »
    One of the biggest complaints about team-building modes in sports games is that they're built around pressuring consumers into spending money in order to complete. MLB The Show 16's Diamond Dynasty mode however has introduced a new feature that is arguably the most consumer-friendly in the genre and has made it far more inviting for those who don't necessarily want to invest in it the same way that others chose to do so. Inside Edge is delivering ratings changes on a daily basis that make...
  • MLB The Show 16 gets its first new packs of the regular season
    Posted April 23rd, 2016 at 10:00 am 1 Comment »
    Two new card packs began being offered in the MLB The Show 16 store yesterday. The "Prime Time Performers" and "Swing For The Fences" packs go for 5,000 coins and contain 3 player cards with a higher chance them being Gold or Diamond. The math doesn't really add up to make one of these packs a good value purchase however. Take 5,000 Coins and either buy one of these new packs getting 3 player cards that have 2X chance of being a Gold or Diamond OR you open 5 regular packs and get 30 pl...
  • Conquest adds a lot to MLB The Show 16 but drags near the end

    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...

    Posted April 4th, 2016 at 12:45 pm 13 Comments »
    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...

    MLB 15: The Show gamers continue to wait with baited breath for the huge roster update that Sony San Diego had promised would come around the All-Star break since last month. After very few changes were made in last week's update, many were anticipating the significant re-rating of the entire league to drop this week. While there were a number of changes in the latest one, it was not the update that is being so hotly anticipated by the community.  (more…)...
  • MLB 15: The Show Diamond Dynasty Market Report for Early-July
    Posted July 7th, 2015 at 9:15 am No Comments »
    The July 6th roster update for MLB 15: The Show contained only 32 updates making it the "calm before the storm". During a pre-E3 stream put on by the development team at Sony San Diego, mention was made that a “wholesale update similar to what we do in between annual releases” will be completed around the All-Star break. That was already highly anticipated but now even more so with this latest roster update delivering so little.  (more…)...

In the last Market Report we examined the fall of Adrian Beltre which made Josh Donaldson the highest overall rated third baseman. This week, Donaldson went even higher, and broke into the "Diamond" tier with his new 93 Overall rating.  (more…)...
