Last night at Gamestop was a midnight release party. So I went there around 11:30 with my Vita to pick up a PS3 copy of Mass Effect 3, MLB 12 the show for PS3 and Vita. 1st thing was the employees(well most employees there except 1) didn't know that if you buy the PS3 version of MLB 12 the show that the Vita version was only $20. Since they had no clue and they had no code and the computer wasn't handling the issue they had no idea what to do. The one guy basically told everyone else that it's definatly supposed to take off $20 and they had it in black and white that it's supposed to happy just not sure how so they manually took it off for the sale. Everyone was getting the 360 version of Mass Effect 3(I'm getting a copy of Mass Effect 3 for my 360 later today)
I went home and during the drive home I booted up MLB 12 the show on my Vita. It looked so pretty, I'm so happy. Then I turned it back off because I can't play and drive. Anyways, I get home and unwrap MLB 12 the show for PS3, it first tells me to install patch 1.05(seriously this game just came out!!!), it also tells me it will installl 5 gigs but if I want to really speed things up it will install a 10 gig file. I was like sounds fine with me. I then goto my Vita and notice that there is a patch here too, 1.01(ok, at least that sounds normal). I then boot up and try to go online to download the latest roster updates(tells me that I need to enter my online pass), annoying but I'm like ok, I'll enter that, then bam, it doesn't recognize the code, You can't even purchase an online pass. So I start a franchise on my vita just to play around while the PS3 version is installing. I start to play on the Vita and wow, the game is so crisp and smooth. You can't see they stuff they chop out to make it faster gameplay wise and you know? I'm ok with it because I'm on a handheld.
I notice the PS3 version is done installing so I quit the game I"m playing on the Vita and as soon as I am on with the PS3 it asked me to download a roster update, so I am cursing out the Vita, why didn't the Vita Version ask me that? So I set up a roster and setup a franchise and save it then I goto choose upload to cloud, then bam here comes the online pass again and surprise the PS3 code didn't work yet either. So frustrating. I did start my franchise on the PS3 and the game play was beautiful. I refused to use the pulse pitching(I've had 4 concussions and just seeing this for 2 minutes gives me a headache). I used zone hitting and pure analog pitching and fielding. We won 3-2 in 10 innings in the first game of the year. I got a trophy for mismatching my uni, throwing a guy out at home and winning a game in extra innings.
I would recommend that everyone gets MLB 12 the show if you are a baseball fan. Just gotta wait sony out to use the cloud as promised.
Oh I setup Mass Effect 3 and there was a quick patch 1.01 and there was really no install. I basically was checking that out and then I went to bed.
