Game Zone has posted their preview of MLB '06: The Show.
"Due for release at the start of the new season, MLB ’06: The Show is shaping up to be the hottest hitter this baseball season. Online play wasn’t available in this build, but new and enhanced features are already being implemented for the final version. They include an online news service that updates multiple times each hour with news, trades and events from 31 different feeds. Gamers will have access to downloadable rosters, live sports tickers, message boards, buddy lists, headset functionality, and a chat feature that works with any USB keyboard (presumably. Though I have yet to encounter any problems, there may be some USB keyboards that don’t work with PS2). This, of course, in addition to the plethora of online gameplay features, including King of the Diamond, Rivalry Mode, and 32-team tournaments."
