Baseball fans, don't be sour. Look above, and feel the power! It's a new day on PlayStation 4, yes it is! For the first time in the platform's short history, Konami is bringing one of their two Nippon Professional Baseball games to PS4. Power Pros 2016 is targeting a Spring 2016 release in Japan on the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita, and that's all we really know about the game right now, based on an official press release that contains one teaser screenshot.
A new version of Pro Yakyuu Spirits is also being made for iOS and Android, and that product is far enough along in development that Konami has posted a pretty detailed trailer to their Japanese YouTube channel:
Pro Yakyuu Spirits Ace should be available on phones and tablets sometime in 2015, according to the above video. Konami's also uploaded lots of in-game screenshots and a few paragraphs describing Ace's game modes on its Japanese webpage.

The 150th (!) episode of the Press Row Podcast gets all our international football-loving friends together to chat all about the brand-new FIFA 16 as well as quite a bit of Pro Evolution 2016. The panel discusses the on-pitch gameplay, new ways to experience Ultimate Team, the controversial FUT Draft mode, and why some people may be feeling a bit of a missing spark with a lack of significant new ways to play despite FIFA’s overall excellence. PES 2016 also gets some love, as the group compares and contrasts the two games and celebrates the fact that two great soccer games are available today – something we can’t say about most other sports.

One reason I enjoy playing Madden is that I get to see all the different venues the game has to offer, and the individuality each location brings to the table. Although these stadiums are not quite as impressive as those found in Sony's MLB: The Show franchise, EA does an admirable job bringing these stadiums to life. With that in mind, I wanted to take a look at my five favorite stadiums in Madden 16, and why I enjoy them.

During a Need For Speed Q&A session, which you can read here, the team answers many questions about the game.
Q) Will there be paid DLC?
A) We plan to release a series of free content updates for Need for Speed. We currently have no plans for any paid DLC.
Q) Will there be micro transactions?
A) There will be no micro transactions.
Q) What frame rate will the game run on consoles?
A) For any driving game a steady frame rate is incredibly important, and with Need for Speed we’re delivering super high production values when it comes to both visuals and sound – as can be seen in our pre-alpha footage of the game. We always look to maximize the game technology with the platform technology for the experience we’re building, which is why the game will run at 30fps on both Xbox One and PlayStation 4. By doing this we ensure that your gameplay experience remains incredibly smooth and allows you to experience the high speed, adrenaline fuelled gameplay that you’ve come to expect from the Need for Speed series.
They have also released more details on customization in the game. Check out all of the details on Visual Customization, Handling/Tuning, Performance Upgrades, as well as Paint and Wrap.
