It’s hard to believe the European soccer season is almost over. With only a handful of Cup matches left, the doldrums of summer are nearly upon us. Thankfully, the team over at Konami has released a teaser trailer as well as an accompanying press release.

Regardless of how you feel about teasers, any early news at this stage of the development cycle is better than nothing. Even this most recent 45 seconds of cut-ups shown at close angles is enough to entice the most loyal of PES fans while giving those who are new to the series a glimmer into the niche fan base that is PES.

Diamond Dynasty received a roster update, two new packs, a new Player Epic mission, new cards in the Ticket Store and a new Collect mission today.

The new Player Epic mission revolves around Rookie Wade Boggs (79 overall), and he has a better chance of being found in the limited edition Ballin Is A Habit pack (15K Stubs). The Ballin pack also has a greater chance at Diamonds and Golds, but there is no percentage listed in terms of how it correlates to regular packs. I personally opened one pack and got a Joey Votto and Dallas Keuchel, but obviously that should not sway you one way or the other. The other pack released is the usual Bases Loaded pack. This one is limited to three per person and costs 5,000 Stubs per pack. You will get a guaranteed Camo equipment item in the pack, and you need all six to complete the Hardware Legend Yogi Berra (96) Collect mission. It appears two of the six items are much rarer than the others, as four equipment items are going for around 1,000 Stubs while the other two are going for over 25,000 Stubs on the Marketplace at this juncture.

The Ticket Store has three new Veteran cards in it today, most likely as the beginning of a preparation for the next Program, which will presumably be a Veteran program. They are a Veteran Flashback Victor Martinez (94 overall, Gold Level 1, 2,650 Tickets), Veteran Legend Tom Seaver (84 overall, Bronze Level 50, 600 Tickets), and a Brad Ziegler (82 overall, Bronze Level 30, 440 Tickets).

The roster update this week was more a slow burn than a big shake-up. It sets the table for a more explosive roster update in the future with more players changing tiers, but for now it mostly moved players around within existing tiers.

Moving Up

Diamonds: No new Diamonds this week, but Lindor and Goldschmidt went up.

Gold: J.D. Martinez (86)

-Chris Archer and Justin Turner also improved their Gold status.

Silver: Carl Edwards Jr. (83), Tyler Clippard (81), Didi Gregorius (81), Justin Bour (81), Avisail Garcia (80), Jose Bautista (80), Michael Feliz (80), Craig Stammen (80), Zack Cozart (80)

-Matt Kemp, Michael Fulmer, Michael Conforto, Aaron Judge, Marco Estrada, Corey Dickerson all improved their Silver status this week.

Bronze: Jorge Bonifacio (74), Josh Bell (73), Logan Morrison (72), Chad Pinder (70), Jarred Cosart (70)

Moving Down

Diamonds: Nobody lost Diamond status, but Miguel Cabrera went down.

Gold: Trea Turner maintained Gold status but did go down a bit.

Bronze: A.J. Ramos (79), Hyun-Jin Ryu (78), Joe Biagini (76), Ian Desmond (75), Justin Grimm (74), Jordan Zimmermann (74)

A genre once close to drawing its last breath has enjoyed a grand resurgence over the last few years. Amazing racing titles such as F1 2016, Forza Horizon 3 and Dirt Rally have helped push console racing forward, and some would argue the genre is as strong right now as it was during the days of the PS2. To compound the rebirth, titles such as NASCAR Heat, Need for Speed, F1, Dirt, Project Cars, among others, all have sequels that will be appearing on a console in 2017. The depth and quality of some of these titles will still need to be fully absorbed before we can quantify them as excellent (or even great), but the good news is 2017 should be an exciting year for racing fans.

So let’s take a look at some of the more popular and anticipated titles coming out in 2017 and what they could bring to the table.

Some of the more popular YouTubers were invited to attend a private NBA Live 18 party and posted some quick videos. For the most part, they are video blogs on their experience at the event, along with a few glimpses of action.

We will probably see a few more trickle in throughout the week, so keep your eyes open, as we wait for more announcements leading up to EA Play in June.

Last month, I documented my first-time experiences with MLB The Show as a self-confessed “noob” of the series. Since then, I’ve spent most of my time in Road to the Show, embarking on a virtual career in a sport I’m not overly familiar with.

This is a recap of my first ever season in Road to the Show in MLB The Show 17. Prior to getting started, I opted for the zone hitting system, armed with the brilliantly accessible dynamic difficulty setting to aid my gradual progression both at the plate and in the field.

It was a season of highs, lows and endless discovery. Give it a read, let me know your thoughts and feel free to offer tips in the comments box below!

The Veteran Legend Ken Griffey Jr. card has been released in the Ticket Counter, which means people who pre-ordered MLB The Show 17 and already have Rookie Legend Ken Griffey Jr. can now (in theory) complete the Diamond Program to unlock the MVP Legend Ken Griffey Jr. (99 overall). The Diamond Program tied to this MVP Griffey card still takes many other steps, and you will need to be Gold level 1 and have 5,000 Tickets to purchase the Veteran Griffey, but at least some folks out there who had been grinding and waiting for this card to be released should now be able to snag one of the best cards in the game. If you don't currently have the Rookie Griffey, the developers at Sony San Diego have said the card will be released at some point, we just don't have a date as of yet.

There was also a roster update and a new Bases Loaded pack released (5,000 Stubs, limited to three per person). The Bases Loaded pack actually has solid value this time around as you're guaranteed at least two standard packs, plus one of the old promo packs or a 10, 20 or 50 pack bundle of standard packs. So in theory you could get 52 packs for 5,000 Stubs.

In terms of the roster update, it was a relatively tame one this week, but we still have some players moving between tiers:

Moving Up

Diamond: Craig Kimbrel (92)
Gold: Greg Holland (87), Lance McCullers (85)
Silver: Felipe Rivero (82), Eduardo Rodriguez (80)
Bronze: Erasmo J. Ramirez (74), Justin Smoak (73), Zach Efflin (72), Matt Albers (72), James Hoyt (71), Chris Taylor (70), Tommy Pham (70), Joe Kelly (70)

Carlos Correa and Zach Greinke also became stronger Golds this week.

Moving Down

Silver: Masahiro Tanaka (82)
Common: Ross Stripling (69), Jarred Cosart (66)

In addition, Rich Hill became a weaker Gold, and Edwin Diaz became a weaker Silver.
