When February started, what we knew about MLB 15: The Show was slim. Since then, we’ve been treated to a deluge of information, including weekly live feeds and frank discussions about the development process. As I wrote previously, this marketing strategy is a unique one in the industry — but certainly helps us set our expectations accurately.

Now that March -- and release month -- is here, here are my most anticipated changes and additions, as featured in the streams thus far.

Another NBA Live 15 roster update has arrived today. It features the Noches Enebea jerseys for the Bulls, Rockets, Lakers, Knicks, Suns, Spurs and Wizards. The same Latin Nights jerseys can also be found in Ultimate Team. The roster update adds 12 accessory updates to players and 3,714 rating changes.

Below are a few notes from ProjectLeet.

Al Horford went up 1 OVR
  • In his last 10 games his average rebounding has gone up to 11.1 from his season average 7.6
  • He’s also stepped up his game in the offensive post
LeBron maintains his status as highest OVR (95)
  • LeBron has been hitting his stride and putting up big numbers, the cavs seem to finally hit their groove in the race to the post season.
Derrick Rose drops 1 OVR
  • Rose playing on injury hasn’t performed as well as he should, but now that he got surgery the Bulls are hoping he comes back feeling better and playing more like his usual self.
Download the spreadsheet with all of the changes here. An updated blog from EA Sports is also online.

The second DLC showcase for WWE 2K15 is now available, and it’s centred on Mark Henry, the WWE’s long-tenured “World’s Strongest Man.” Henry is kind of a funny story, as the WWE signed him way back when during the death throes of the big-man era of wrestling. The problem was that they paid a lot of money to Henry, and he struggled to really materialize into anything remotely marketable. His 10-year contract was rumored to be in the neighbourhood of $1 million a year, which was a lot to shell out for an unproven commodity. Only in recent years has Henry managed to create some type of return on investment for the company, but even that is dubious.

Monday's MLB 15: The Show stream was the longest so far, totaling almost three hours, but despite its length, there wasn't a whole lot of new information shared. Here are all of the details that were discussed:

Uniforms, Head Scans, & Equipment
  • Each MLB team has 10 different jersey slots. There are around 430 uniforms in the game.
  • The Mariners' and Giants' new alternate jerseys will not be in MLB 15: The Show, because there wasn't an available slot to put them into. The developers would have had to replace those teams' throwback uniforms, and Sony San Diego's telemetry shows that gamers are selecting throwbacks too often to justify getting rid of them.
  • In Franchise mode, teams will wear their alternate/throwback uniforms according to their real-life tendencies and schedules.
  • Uniform and face scans files have become so large in size that Sony San Diego is unable to patch new ones into the game after it releases. What you get on the MLB 15 disc is what you'll have all year.
  • There are around 1,500 unique player heads in the game. One head can take a couple of hours to get right, depending on how complicated the hair is.
  • The developers travel to spring training sites to capture minor leaguers' faces before they are called up to the majors.
  • The cameras that were used to scan player faces were also used to scan most of the equipment in MLB 15, though some items had to be modeled from scratch.
Miscellaneous Notes
  • The degree of horizontal/vertical pitch break will be unique for every MLB pitcher and is based on real data from last season.
  • If you decide to use an injured player, his attribute ratings will be negatively impacted, depending on the location and severity of the injury.
  • Every MLB stadium has been improved for MLB 15. There will be a stream later in the month showing off all the ballparks.
  • Historic stadiums are not in the PlayStation 4 version of MLB 15. Sony San Diego believes their return on investment would not be significant enough to make it worth their effort.
  • You can now warm-up pitchers and access your bullpen by pressing up on the d-pad.
  • Fielding "quick shifts" can now be made by pressing down on the d-pad.
  • Road to the Show won't have any new fielding cameras, but the baserunning camera will be less jittery.
  • The MLB's new "pace of play" rules were announced too late to include in MLB 15: The Show.
  • There are about 70 new "third out" animations.
  • Pitchers, batters, and fielders will each have their own unique sets of emotion animations after big plays.
  • Athletes who don't have signature home run celebrations will use a random one from a pool of generic animations.
  • Fans can catch any balls that end up in the stands.
  • George Springer's pre-game dance is in the game.
  • Jason Heyward's batting stance has been updated.

PES 2015 data pack 4 is scheduled to release on March 12th. It will include transfers, 3 new stadiums (Burg Stadion, Stadio Orione and Boca Juniors' La Bombonera), 63 new player faces, 2 new match balls, 11 boot styles and more.

Read the full press release below and check out the new screenshots here.

Konami Reveals PES 2015 Data Pack 4 Content Updates

Free Updates Include Winter Transfers, New Player Faces and Additional Stadiums for Award-Winning PES 2015

Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. today announced the content updates coming in the free Data Pack 4 download for PES 2015, named IGN’s Best Sports Game of 2014 and the Best Sports Game at the global games conference, gamescom. This update includes the latest rosters across all modes in the game, improves a number of player likenesses, adds new stadiums and uniforms, and implements the latest shoes and balls from a number of key suppliers. Data Pack 4 will be released globally on March 12.

The latest free update for PES 2015 continues to add more realism. First, the download keeps the game updated with real-time league changes, implementing player transfers made within the January window. Player ratings have also been updated.

Additionally, a number of improved likenesses to key players will be implemented. In line with PES 2015’s reputation for stunning physical and aesthetic reproduction of the sport’s greatest stars, the new data pack adds over 60 new faces from some of this season’s top players, as well as some new stars that have recently exploded onto the scene. These include Gabigol (Gabriel Barbosa Almeida), Paco Alcácer, Harry Kane, Paulo Dybala, Javier Pastore and Nathaniel Clyne. Since launching PES 2015, KONAMI has added over 200 new players to the game and continues to work with the fan community to select additional players for future inclusion.

Other additions include three ‘additonal’ stadiums, as well as updates to uniforms and equipment. One of the new stadiums is Estadio Alberto J. Armando, also known as ”La Bombonera.” All of the stadiums have been faithfully modeled after their real life counterparts and will be available for the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft. Additional updates deliver 11 new shoe styles, including adidas’ Predator Instinct and adizero f50 designs, alongside Nike’s Tiempo and Puma’s evoSPEED 1.3 pairs. The new adidas argentum ball will also be available, as is the official match ball of this year’s UEFA Champions League Final.

”The Pitch is Ours” is the ethos for PES 2015 and the aim in this year’s installment has been to recreate the drama and tension associated with a vital match. PES 2015 marks a concerted return to core PES values of total control, utterly responsive controls, and unrestricted gameplay, where the user has complete control over how they play. Every pass, shot or run is finely balanced to give maximum player satisfaction within PES 2015’s on-field action. Also, PES 2015 added a new mode, myClub, where users can assemble and manage a world-class team of their own creation to compete with CPU-controlled teams offline or other real users online. Players can advance their myClub teams either through Game Points earned by completing challenges or via myClub coins which can be purchased using real world money PES 2015 has been hailed by critics and fans as the best football game of its generation.

PES 2015 is available now worldwide on PlayStation®4, Xbox One™, PlayStation®3, Xbox 360™ and Windows PC. More information is available at pes.konami.com.
