Yea I was just about to post about that.


"With college hoops season in full swing we're very excited to announce that we are releasing a brand new version of our hit series Draft Day Sports: College Basketball. DDS:CB3 will feature a host of new additions such as international recruits, new conference alignments, improvements and changes in recruiting tactics, improved game AI and a brand new, rebuilt from the ground up UI which now requires a minimum resolution of 1280x768 offering much more screen real estate."

"Also because this title was not announced while CB2 was still being sold for full price if you did buy DDS:CB2 on or after October 1, 2013 and you want in on the beta we will be happy to allow you to trade in your CB2 license for a CB3 one."

Anyone else got any thoughts on this? Not wanting to derail the reason for this post but, it seemed to make more sense to ask here than start a new thread.

I am in the market to buy a college BB game. I played the wheels off the original FBCB back in 2003-04...but I like some of the features they talk about in DDS:CB2. With the new one coming out, I can get that with a 15% discount right now so, for $29, I am leaning towards DDS:CB3.

So I am wondering if anyone has played both series and could give some insight on them?

FBCB2 Is easier to mod and a lil more stable but that's expected as CB2 is more in depth.

You can't go wrong with either but both games serves its purposes. If you want a simple quick sim, then go with FBCB2. If you want something more in depth and focus on a career then go with CB3. (I don't know how stable the new game will be compared to CB2)

As for company, Greydog is a lil more active in customer service than Wolverine Studios.

FBCB2 has been out for some years but have gotten a good amount of updates. The last update from CB2 was maybe last year and if it wasn't for the new upcoming release of CB3, I doubt DDS College Basketball would have gotten another update.

But to be fair, it seems the DDS College basketball series are getting released with a new version every 2 years. Vs FBCB which haven't had a new version since 2010.

Re: Draft Day Sports: College Basketball 2

Thanks for the response! That was exactly what I was looking for...I am strongly leaning toward CB3.

EDIT: CB3 Beta is released and I pulled the trigger on it! So I get the frustration of early access testing...yeah!

I wonder how long it'll be until its "early access release"...the website said late November. But, you can't get much later in November than right now.
Actually I believe the beta just went live.

Yup Good stuff!

I wonder if the old logos/courts +data file from CB2 would work with the new game, hummm...
