Patches in the works for MLB 2K8

Posted March 14th, 2008 at 5:42 am


Game Informer has gotten official word from Take Two/2K Sports regarding several patches that are currently being worked on for the 360 and PS3 versions of MLB 2K8. Specifically mentioned are the framerate and the Padres’ roster glitch. Lets look at a few parts of the statement that was made with my translation following.

It has come our attention that there are a few technical issues within Major League Baseball 2K8 that may effect gameplay enjoyment for some players.

We shipped a game with full knowledge of serious problems that affect all players.

Specifically, the Xbox 360 update will alleviate reported concerns with the framerate to greatly improve the in-game playability

We know that The Show owns the PS3 so no point in bothering there right?

While a patch for both the Xbox 360 and PLAYSTATION 3 will correct an error in Franchise mode when playing as the San Diego Padres and attempting to move players to and from their minor league rosters.

These updates are currently undergoing technical review, and will be available to download shortly, free of charge.

Two weeks would be a good estimate. Sorry to anyone who doesn’t have their consoles hooked up to the internet.

It’s good news that patches are coming but still disappointing that the game was released with an immediate need just to get it playing to a satisfactory level. There are probably even more things that will be addressed in the patches that they did not want to list out, but sadly no mention was made concerning the disastrous online play performance or lobby challenges freezing consoles.
