  • Summary: Ultimate Baseball Online (UBO) is the world's first virtual reality, massive multi-player online sports game. Unlike current video games that aspire to simulate professional sports, UBO delivers a first person perspective online sports experience as real players team up and face off against another team in real-time. In UBO, baseball enthusiasts and gamers compete in 3D virtual stadiums. With stunning graphics and surround-sound audio reactions from the crowd, participants control a player for a specific field position. Players use an avatar to bat, pitch, field, run, steal and perform any baseball action. Participants can practice, play pick-up games, join or found their own teams, compete against rival teams and win a league championship in the post season. Gamers build their skill level (player stats) through successful play on the field against other real human players. Netamin is now offering Ultimate Baseball Online at a special preview discount price of $19.95 with free monthly play until the game officially launches in Fall 2004. Once launched, Ultimate Baseball Online will cost $29.95, which includes the first month of play free, with a monthly subscription charge of $9.95. [Netamin] Collapse

  1. Ultimate Baseball Online is an interesting idea, but technical and control issues hold it back from being any more than a temporary curiosity.
  2. UBO makes for a great Hot Stove League game and I’m looking forward to playing it all winter long.
