I may give this one more chance but after 2 hours with it tonight I feel really deflated. I was hoping for an alternative game this year but I guess it wasn't to be.
Not that i don't believe you, but i just have a hard time believing that 2k would release a patch that one of the top priorities if not the top was AI aggressiveness, and your saying you dont see anything at all.

Did MS change their policy. I don't think they release patches on Fridays.

Haven't had a chance to download this yet... but I'm excited. Sounds like it'll make for a whole new game. If in fact the IE is really fixed as some have reported.

Really happy to see PS3 owners getting some attention from 2K finally!

Microsoft does release patches on Fridays. In fact, patches have released on pretty much every day of the week (though they normally release on Tuesday's when Microsoft updates its servers).

Re: ***Official patch 2 impressions thread (PS3 only)***

I seriously can not believe after all the problems the title had, and all the efforts that have been made to fix it, and clearly enough people are saying the problems have been fixed, that people are still complaining that stances are not editable. What's more important? Editable stances or a player with a generic stance that performs with statistical accuracy?

I don't know... I'm a pretty picky guy and this doesn't bother me. When I'm trying to get on bases late in a playoff game after a long hard season, I could care less how my player is batting, I'm just trying to keep my eye on the ball.

Anyone agree with me?

Oh, I agree with you. I won't take away from people's frustration, though. Lots of people wanted to edit batting and pitching styles. I'm sure it will be in 2K10, but that is little consolation to those who wanted it this year.

About the patch... can anyone confirm what Guffers says?

There have been various people in here saying that the AI is less aggressive. I think they're confirming the opposite. It might depend on pitches though, I wonder if batters still swing wildly over a 12-6 curve.

Just got word from Microsoft that my Xbox made it to them. Hopefully it'll get repaired by the time I head home for Easter. Celebrating Jesus and baseball...truly the American dream.

Re: ***Official patch 2 impressions thread (PS3 only)***

I've been holding off buying this game to see if any patch work would make it better. Haven't even rented it based on my horrible experience with the demo!!! However, I'm encouraged by what some of you peeps are seeing after the PS3 patch. The big things for me were:

1) AI batting
2) Ease of pitching
3) Too many HR's
4) Sucky outfield play/errors
5) AI tagging issues

With most of these appearing to be fixed, the game has been elevated to rental status.

One question I do have is whether these fixes carry over to online play. Has anyone played an online game post-patch?? Any improvements there?? I know the AI issues is a non factor online but what about outfield play??
