"Cross Platform Save" Functionality in MLB 12 The Show works like this:
You must have both PS3 and PS Vita versions of the game.
You must use the same PSN account on both devices.
Your PS3 or PS Vita must be connected to PSN when you are ready to upload/download your save file (on PS Vita, you must be connected to PSN via WiFi; MLB 12 does not support cross platform save using 3G).
How it works:
During your Season, Franchise or Road to The Show modes only, after completion of a game, you can save your game and upload it to the cloud. From there you can download that save file from the cloud onto your PS Vita, or vice versa.
Pausing and saving the game at any point. The game must be completed.
Playing the game on PS Vita without the software.
Playing against someone else on a PS Vita while you are on your PS3 (Cross Platform Play) or vice versa
I'm thinking of buying a PS3 largely because of this game
Plus I always guess fastball. Give or take 50% of the time thats what it is anyways. If it's not it helps me with my timing.
Loved that game. That and tecmo bowl.
Yep. Guess fastball, and if it isn't you are expecting a breaking ball which you can time better since you know it isn't a fastball. I struggle against pitchers that have a 4 seam and 2 seam along with 2 breaking pitches. Timing is difficult with them.
The Show is worth buying a PS3 by itself. Not to mention all the other great exclusives.
so... when you guess a pitch, does it itell you you are right?
Yeah. You guess pitch type and location. Each tells you before the pitch if you were right or not. Guessing the correct location shows you were the pitch will be exactly. Guessing the correct type will increase the sweet spot.
Yes. Then you can just smash it.
In memory of Tusks.
Not always. Lets say you guess fastball up high, and the triangle turns red and starts vibrating. You guessed the right pitch and location, congratulations. What if the pitch is TOO high, and you swing right under it? Happens all the time. I think I have it, and I'm going to smash it, but WHIFF. He pitched it way high and I completely miss when I should have taken it for a ball.
I love the Show.
how do i fffkin guess a pitch?
that shit never worked for me.... god, they need to make the books better
Yeah. I got pretty good at recognizing pitches when they come in too high and can normally check it.
What I hope they kept in this years game was all the old school nicknames you could have the announcers pronounce your name as. My centerfielder was Dixie Catfish and my shortstop was Cowboy Rabbit.
Think I will pick them up on Tuesday. Best sports game.

I can't hit worth a crap in this game. I tried. About everything. I just don't pick up the pitches well. Any tips to help me?
Practice, practice, practice. The hitting practice modes really help. Try them out.
great idea , couldnt hit a lick so i really just gave it up - no fun when you cant hit the dat gum ball
I'm really considering picking it up. I have '10 and it's great of course, but I have such a backlog of games that I'm not sure I can justify the purchase. Knowing me, though, I'll likely pick it up depending on the reviews posted here.
do any of you play in franchise mode? If so do you play all 162 games? That takes to long for me. How do you go through a season?
I simulate a lot of games. I play some meaningful series and things like that.
+1 for you guys
I usually don't play many games when I'm doing that. I usually just try to build teams with trades and stuff. Ill play the playoffs or other big games. I'd say i play maybe 20ish in the regular season.
I don't play that mode much. Almost all road to the show for me.
I typically will play one game a series or a week or whatever, depending on the purpose.
It's coming out tomorrow . Thinking of blowing off my softball game to play. It's going to be in the 40's anyway..plus it's a coed office team.
