Is MLB 12 The Show’s Diamond Dynasty Another Ultimate Team? Um, No...


Kotaku's Owen Good has posted some more details on MLB 12 The Show's Diamond Dynasty and let's us know why it's not EA's Ultimate Team.

Quote:
Cards, collections, virtual currency— when "Diamond Dynasty" appeared in a retail listing as a new mode for MLB 12 The Show, everyone thought they knew what it was: A feature that would borrow heavily from EA Sports' "Ultimate Team," which has been a cash cow for its FIFA, NHL and Madden franchises.

It would seem to make sense. EA Sports has no baseball presence, and the game is a natural for anything built on a sports card motif. Plus, it might make sense for Sony to move into this territory now, in case EA Sports returns to it after 2K's baseball license expires this year.

After talking with Sony's San Diego Studio, the makers of the widely acclaimed MLB The Show series, it sounds like all "Diamond Dynasty" has in common with "Ultimate Team," is the fact neither gives you a stick of gum when you open a fresh pack.

Re: What MLB The Show’s "Diamond Dynasty" Is, and Why It Isn’t Another Ultimate Team

One drawback Madden Ultimate Team had when it first came out in Madden 10 was that it was almost impossible to keep a team intact so you couldn't really mold your team into the type of team you wanted to play with. In the current Madden Ultimate Team (MUT12) , they made it so any player is affordable. You can basically use any QB, HB, WR you want without affecting your budget.

I'm hopeful DD will still allow us to build a specific type of team (i.e. small ball, bronx bombers, all speed, or all defensive team) and still be able to keep that team intact.

Wasn't interested in this, when first news hit, however now, this sounds very fun. Definitely something to do besides always playing franchise
