    Demo for MLB 11: The Show Out Tomorrow




    [​IMG]

    In a posting yesterday the Playstation Blog casually revealed that a demo for MLB 11: The Show would release with the update of PSN on the evening of Tuesday February 21st. This comes as somewhat of a surprise simply due to the timing involved and that to date SCEA had not publicly discussed any of their plans for the demo.
    Typically Sony would make a bigger deal out of promoting their products including their demo releases. That Killzone 3 releases on Tuesday ultimately shouldn’t affect how The Show would be marketed, even as they surely would like the primary focus for the day to be on Killzone.
    Regardless it looks as though the demo will be out tomorrow and after everything that went down last year that is an encouraging development in itself. This is an important one given that the new analog control schemes will take some time to adapt to. Details on the what the demo will entail will likely come sometime today or early tomorrow.

    grabbed the above from pastapadre. http://www.pastapadre.com/2011/02/21/demo-for-mlb-11-the-show-out-tomorrow

    I'm pretty excited about the demo. I remember when the first MLB the show came out I was still into MVP Baseball on PC, I didn't think the game would be worth a shit, but when I played it I loved it haha. Been playing ever since. I'm that crazy guy that only finishes 1 or 2 seasons because I play first 3 innings and last 2 innings of every game MLB through AA.

    Downloading now. Emm, I played MVP baseball a ton on the PC. I just remember what a homer fest it was. I would just crush it with Sosa every time.

    Ive played a few games, not a fan of analog whatsoever. I will say this, 2k seems to be way ahead of the show when it comes to their analog setup but then again they have had time to perfect it for the past 2-3 years

    Same here, been downloading for 90 minutes and still only at 50%. I wish Sony would take cues from Microsoft on how to effectively release downloads. Whether system updates or demo releases, the PSN crawls slower than the days of dial-up.

    First game I played I lost 1 - 0.. I had a triple with Pablo Sandoval though LOL

    Yeah I can't hit with the stick.. pitching is okay.. little less precise than I hoped..

    One issue I had was I threw a guy out at first but he was called safe even though I beat him by like 2 steps lol.. Umpire error?
