4.0 out of 5 stars Load Your Sliders EVERY TIME you load the game; Avoid TV Input Lag, March 10, 2012

= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: MLB 12 The Show - Playstation 3 (Video Game)
Let me start by saying I am a casual sports gamer in my mid 40's with a family so I am lucky to get a couple of hours of gaming in a week. I have played (but don't own) MLB 10 and MLB 11 and although I was impressed with the graphics, etc., the hitting seemed too hard to me so I avoided purchasing those games. After checking into the game a bit more and getting caught up in the hype of a new release, I realized you can adjust the sliders and camera views quite a bit so I decided to try the game this year and bought it from Amazon with game-day release.

After playing around with it a bit, I realized I had to adjust the pitch speed all the way down and bump my hitting timing all the way up (in the sliders) to help with the hitting but after some practice it's coming around and I'm really enjoying this game. HOWEVER, MAKE SURE YOU LOAD YOUR CUSTOM SLIDERS EVERY TIME YOU PUT IN THE GAME. FOR WHATEVER REASON, YOUR CUSTOM SLIDERS DO NOT WORK AS THE DEFAULT. Further, it's quite possible that some of my hitting problems in the past may also have resulted from the input lag that occurs in some HDTVs. I have a new TV now which has a gaming mode which may be working better than my prior one. The hitting IS difficult -- like it is in real life, BUT, as indicated above, there may be some things you can do to help you out. IT IS NOT A GAME WHERE YOU CAN JUST EXPECT YOUR NON-GAMER FRIENDS TO COME OVER AND PLAY IT WITH YOU AND HAVE SOME FUN -- IT'S MORE APPROPRIATE FOR THE EXPERIENCED SPORTS GAMER. BUT, oerall, this is a great game with awesome graphics, presentation and gameplay, as long as you know what to expect. My only major complaint might be that I wish you could simply create and load a single, custom team (rather than a whole new roster set) and that you could reduce the pitch speed even more to allow for better casual play.

I feel the same way, I too am in my 40's and have to adjust sliders accordingly. I do believe though that if you want to play a season with a team, if you go into your season , you can change your sliders within the season and once saved you wont have to load every time .Everyday you load up your season your sliders that you initially changed will still be there .Just remember once in your season, change the sliders to your liking, then save the season and you should be good after that.No need to reload sliders after that unless you want to just play an exhibition game or something.

This is due to having a 120 Hz TV. if played on a 60 Hz TV it will be fine.

If your sliders have to be reloaded every game and you set up a season then you need to delete the game and reinstall it. I had the exact same problem. This is some bloated game even compared to previous editions The kind of television 60hz, 120hz has no bearing. It's a software, ps3 issue pure and simple.
