Sony Computer Entertainment America has announced the MLB 14 The Show online servers will close on November 2, 2015. Previously, the team announced they would keep them online until June 18, but decided to keep them up for a longer period of time, after complaints.

For those of you looking to use Year to Year Saves to continue MLB 14 PS4 to MLB 15 PS4, decommissioning the servers will NOT prevent that. To transfer your Save file from MLB 14 to MLB 15 on the same PS4, be sure to have the Save File stored on the Hard Drive of your PS4. You can then boot up MLB 15 The Show PS4 and the game will allow you to "load from MLB 14" using the Save file on your PlayStation 4 Hard Drive.

Now, for those of you moving from PS3 to PS4, you will need to take action before November 2. If you would like to move your Road to the Show, Season or Franchise save file from MLB 14 The Show PS3 to MLB 15 The Show PS4, please take the following steps:
  • Upload your MLB 14 PS3 save file to the Cloud, using the in-game feature.
  • Load a copy of MLB 14 The Show PS4 and select "Load from Cloud," using the same account you used to upload.
  • Once you "Load from cloud" the new save will be available to Save to your Hard Drive.
  • Using MLB 14 The Show PS4 and the loaded Cloud save, select “Options > Save” within the loaded mode (Franchise, RttS or Season).
  • Now you have a save file from MLB 14 The Show PS4 on your Hard Drive to load in MLB 15 The Show PS4 once you get a hold of a copy.

Yasiel Puig has been battling the injury bug this year, including missing the entire month of May due to a hamstring issue. In the month of June when he returned, he hit just 1 home run, while driving in 6. While he did bat .303 in the month of June, his average in July dipped to .195 and is now batting .254 on the season.

On Wednesday, he delivered 2 hits, including a home run and 3 RBI in a win over the Oakland Athletics. After the game he attributed the success to playing baseball video games.

Here is a quote from Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times:

Yasiel Puig on ending slump: "I just stopped playing soccer video games. I've found, when I play baseball video games, I do better."

One would assume he is referring to MLB 15 The Show, since he is the cover athlete of the game.

The NHL 16 EASHL beta is available now for both Xbox One and PlayStation 4. While it was available on the Xbox One earlier this morning and throughout the day (via workaround), EA Sports hit a snag getting it online for both consoles the way they intended.

With all of that said, they figured out the cause of the problem and have extended the beta until August 7, giving gamers an extra day to hit the ice.

NHL 15 (Xbox One, PlayStation 4 or EA Access) is required to access the beta initially, but is not required after you have successfully downloaded as the beta will be accessible directly from your console hard drive. (More information here, including a chance for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 users to access the beta, if you have upgraded to a current-gen console).

As noted by Chase on Twitter:

If you struggle to find the EASHL download spot on NHL 15 on PS4 -- tab to the Play option, then tab back to Home and it should be in top right panel (As seen in the image above).

The same can be said for the Xbox One beta, if you can't locate it.

The Rocket League Supersonic Fury DLC Pack is coming in August, check out the trailer here. It will include 2 new Battle-Cars (over-the-top American muscle car Dominus and a souped-up Japanese street racer Takumi), six unique decals for each new Battle-Car (12 total), 5 new paint types, 2 new rocket boosts, 2 new wheels and plenty more customization options.

A new game update is also scheduled to arrive in early August, which brings in Utopia Coliseum, more than 70 new country flags and "Spectator Mode".

Besides the new Battle-Cars, the DLC Pack also includes two all-new Rocket Boosts (“Nitrous” and “Burnout”), two new Wheel sets (the soccer ball-themed “Cristiano” and the very-cool “Spinner” set), five all-new Paint Types (“Brushed Metal,” “Carbon Fiber,” “Metallic Pearl,” “Pearlescent,” and “Wood”), and a handful of new Trophies. This entire collection will be available in early August for $3.99.

In addition to the Supersonic Fury DLC, we will also release a free game update that offers an assortment of new content, including our first new map, Utopia Coliseum, and more than 70 new country flags. The long-awaited “Spectator Mode” will be in there too, allowing viewers to watch live games in real-time from any angle in the arena. Spectator controls are very similar to that of our existing “Replay Viewer’s,” so start practicing now and get ready for the drop!

Further enhancements, like updated Goal explosions and Demolitions, are planned for the free update as well, along with the brand new song, “Firework,” from the critically-acclaimed electronica group, Hollywood Principle.

Rocket League is still available for free on PlayStation Plus until August 4th.

Konami has just released a couple of PES 2016 videos. The first one shows cover athlete Neymar Jr. playing PES European Product Manager, Adam Bhatti. Neymar has a couple of goals and rubs it in Adam's face, as he celebrates with his friends, it's actually quite funny.

The next video shows off the 3D photo scanning process, which includes body scanning. Adam mentions that it has a bright future, so stay tuned for more news on that.
