We were just pointing out Benny's post is not real since the demo was out at 7:45 and he said he downloaded it, installed it, and played an inning and posted so at 8pm.... The install and pregame loading alone took 7 minutes.. So unless he downloaded 1595MB and played a full inning in under 8 minutes he was fooling around.

I'm playing now, it looks a little dark to start. Lighting is awesome.

Right off the bat the new catch animations in play, immediately visible at first base.

Framerate is a little sketchy

Fielding is awesome, new replay cam is just like TV..
Not talking about HRs, talking about regular hits

Set down the controller, first time the guys around the batters box were checking for rain.... second scene went to the fanatic, third scene went to the guys at first waving to someone in the crowd...

All 3 are new

I can't seem to check my swing, no matter how light I press x.

Ball moves a little bit faster on both sides of the ball

Infield already shows signs of traction.. A lot of new catch animations


New replay cam is awesome fellas.

I believe in the IGN review they said that it wasn't part of the demo but to expect check swings to be there when the game comes out.

Can anyone who's played PYS make a comparison to this demo?
 
# 13 The Management @ 02/05/09 08:59 PM
I had no problem check swinging but it's something I did a LOT in 08

No problem turning on a fastball either.

A lot of hitters have different stances from last year.... some are good like Utley, they have his foot up in the air correctly

Pena's stance was pretty bad.

WOAH, new swing animation on a foul ball... new batter animation on a steal attempt if you take the pitch. Batter back pedals out of the box.

Base runners turn around much more quickly than before.

Whats wrong with the color on your TV? Or is that the camera making it look like that?
 
# 15 bowlerguy92 @ 02/05/09 09:01 PM
Pitching is a lot more sporatic and you have slightly less control, in a good way though! The replays of hits have some great new angles so you can really see the slice on the ball and experience the fan interaction. That's it for now, I'm up to bat!
 
# 16 The Management @ 02/05/09 09:01 PM
I've checked my swing 3 times in the first inning, each time I wanted too. Again though, I wouldn't use myself as a barometer because I check swing a lot out of habit.

You CAN see the seems on the ball while it's in play, not just a white glow like last year
 
# 17 Brewhaha @ 02/05/09 09:01 PM
I drew 3 walks in the second inning, one of which was a bases loaded walk with Hamels batting, love it.

LOL. Photographing a TV never looks good. It's just the picture.

Taken with a phone from an angle. I also have a dim light on in the room.


Stances are much better this year.

They didn't move the outfielders in a few steps this year, but the ball just moves faster so you can get it over the outfielder's head.

Toatally awesome LOOKING and i can see the new fielding animations are gonna rock. After half an inning i scored 1 run three hits on legend level and all assists off. Gonna finish this game before i post again. Man, this game LOOKS great.
