MLB® 2006 features numerous gameplay enhancements for the upcoming season. The all-new Branch Point Technology (BPT) provides seamless fielding transitions and smooth base running; the all-new PlayMaker Fielding Marker provides better fielding interaction with your player attributes with your skill level in order to make the play; all-new Release Point Pitching helps determine your ability to hit spots in the strike zone; a deeper Franchise Mode; and an all-new Career Mode where you call the shots. With returning gameplay favorites including EyeToy™ functionality and online playability through 989SportsOnline.com, MLB® 2006 promises a true-to-life experience for every pitch, hit, catch and throw from the moment you step onto the diamond.
All-New PlayMaker Fielding Marker merges your fielding skill with player attributes and ultimately provides challenging defensive interaction for you to play flawless defense.
The all-new Release Point Pitching and Confidence Meter will impact your ability to hit your spots and paint the corners. As your confidence grows or diminishes, so does your ability to pitch effectively.
For the first time in any Career Mode, you actually can call the shots. Discuss playing time with your manager, demand a trade or negotiate your salary; the decision is yours.
The deepest Franchise Mode available just got deeper with the all-new Morale System where player morale is tracked on virtually every level – salary, playing time, batting slot, team performance, you name it.
