Thank the lord!!! I was so sick of seeing the CPU wait for the runner to get close to the bag to throw the ball back. Maybe now I'll actually get out when I make a dumb baserunning mistake.

Gah! I was so excited when I saw this thread.....until I realized its for PS3 owners ()

But its good to read about the fixes and impressions the patch has created. This patch could make this game into something truely special.

Re: ***Official patch 2 impressions thread***

I'd like to hear impressions as well. Was waiting for this thing but got impatient and got a ps3. I still would like to see how this is as I might pick the game back up if its improved the major things.

My main issues were the AI aggressiveness which appeats to be fixed. It was also really easy to make contact and put the ball in play when batting. Just pitch counts in general on both sides were hard to come by. I hope 2k addressed this from both sides, not just hte cpu.

Re: ***Official patch 2 impressions thread***

I played a game with the patch and it plays very well. The CPU definately throws more balls now. I walked 3 times in the game (one of them on 4 pitches). They were quite a few hits by both teams but it was on default All-Star setting. I enjoyed the game and think the patch will be making many people happy.

I did have one play where I thought the first baseman coming off the bag reared its ugly head again. It ended up being Hanley Ramirez throwing to first from the hole at SS and throwing the ball up the firstbase line causing the first baseman to have to come off the bag to catch the ball.

All in all I am happy with the patch. Now if they can come out with an opening day roster download I will be a happy camper.

Sounds pretty good, nice list of fixes.

Just anxiously awaiting the PC release so I can start a franchise.

This is what I was hoping for.

I guess this would be it for the patching process? No more after this? This seems to tackle most of the problems.

Re: ***Official patch 2 impressions thread***

what about editing player ratings/appearances (all the greyed out attributes)?

Man, I hope 360 gets it soon. MLB 2K9 has been shelved for a while waiting for the patch, so the sooner the better. I'd like to start my franchise.
