P.S. There are a few more fixes not listed above I'll add them asap. Also thank you (OS and everyone at Theshowcommunity.com) for your help in identifying some of issues.


A new bug was introduced during the patch 3 process. The previous reported bug on this issue did not happen 100% of the time. There needed to be a perfect storm to recreate it, sadly we were never able re-create it in house or it would have been fixed.

Something happened in patch 3 that made the bug occur 100% of the time if the runner crossed home plate before the out was recorded.

We are looking at a 24 hour turnaround for 3rd out issue. Can't confirm the time frame though.

Thank you so much to every one involved in making this update happen!

Just clarifying - this update will affect the ongoing franchises as well, right?

Was glad to do it before.
Thanks, jim. I thought it would appear in the shops here but it never did. An American friend is bringing it with him on Friday. I might take up your kind offer again next year though!

First off thanks you!!!! The silence was killing me, finally some good news after a rough day....

I hate to be one of those guys but can someone tell me if trade logic in franchise is being addressed? I don't see it and some of the wording is a bit confusing.

Thanks so much for the patch SCEA!

It's actually kind of strange since I was thinking about the Tropicana Field glitch just a few hours ago, and I was wondering if they were ever going to fix it. Here we are just a few hours later, and now we have our answer.

I know that after I filed my original report about the freezing at the Trop, other people found out that the freezing was triggered by events other than accessing the bullpen from the Quick Menu. Here's hoping that the patch managed to fix *all* of the freezing at the Trop. I've got my hopes up, and I guess we'll find out in a few hours.

I have to admit, I was getting pretty worried. Heck, I had all but given up hope on a third patch being released. The guys (and girls?) at Sony just continue to amaze me. Once this patch is released, I am confident that MLB 10: The Show will replace MVP Baseball 05 as my favorite baseball video game of all time. Thanks Sony! I can't wait!

Sorry to ask if this has been asked and answered a thousand times but I did a search and nothing. Do I need to restart my franchise to get this updated patch?
