if this is true, this is a major (and unexpected) addition! I won't have to skip all walkups etc anymore for fear of seeing that ugly transition...

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

Everything is sounding excellent up to this point. Can't wait to finally pop the game in for the first time in a while on Friday...

...and the news about the "snap into stance" animation being removed just may be the best news I've heard in this thread, I was starting to get pretty annoyed...

M-Dogg and Hoosier,

I played an inning pitching as Beckett at home as the Red Sox versus the Mets. I used all 12-6 CB's as pitches:

Here's the results after the first inning:

I walked Jose Reyes, I had a SO to the #2 hitter (caught looking and did not swing), and gave up a single to David Wright (a flyout that died before my outfielder could get to it).

I also noticed that the Mets' hitters weren't chasing the 12-6 CB if it was away and low, but they chased it more often when it was high and inside the zone.

That sounds promising.

I think the initial posts sound promising, but it's still pretty difficult to tell how it REALLY effects the game until the sliders are brought up to speed with the patch adjustments.

And plus it's pretty obvious that the overwhelming majority of the people here play the 360/PC versions so we need a bigger sample size. Because for 13 pages of posts, it's pretty amazing how few of them are actually from people playing the game on the PS3 w/ this patch.

I am actually one of the few who is playing MLB 2K9 on the PS3 with this newest patch.

Haha yeah that really hurts. It's really a big deal for me for some reason. It was the main reason I stopped playing NCAA 09 last year. Having the game start and end at the same time took away from the overall experience, and, while there is progressive lighting in this game, it needs just a little bit of work.

Wow that is a huge addition. Let's hope that there are a lot of unsaid fixes in this patch that we don't know including this one.
