They didn't have any refurbished ones, and I'm kind of glad.. it puts my mind at ease that I have a brand new one. Put a bigger dent in my wallet, and could only afford one game with it for now.. but like I said, when I get paid this weekend, I'll most definitely pick up MGS4 as well.

But The Show was one of the main games I wanted a PS3 for, so I'll be playing it alot.

I still gotta set up the internet and everything.

Oh, I totally did.. if it wasn't for MGS4, I wouldn't have got it. There are games for it that interested me, but not enough to buy it until now.

Question.. is the Road to the Show mode long and tedious? Reviews I read of it said it was way too long and difficult to get out of the minors, no matter how good you're doing because it was going off of player ratings not stats.. true?

I got my account and internet and everything set up last night and played the game a bit..

Two games into my Indians franchise and I'm 1-1, only because the first game I had a nice little inning where small ball helped me out. Beyond that, holy crap, I can't hit for shit! :shock:

Pitching is fine, but for some reason I just can't figure the hitting out. :shock: I get the power swing and the regular swing buttons, and the timing, I just can't figure out what to do with the left and right analogs..

But beyond that, the game is sweeeet.. I love the atmosphere!

Nothing to say about the ps3, although I'd like to get one one day.

Just wanted to say your avatar is hilarious. i just came across that picture the other day with the title beside him that says: I hate sandcastles! And you can see a boy in the background in the remains of a sandcastle.

You'll have to post spoilers for MGS4 as you play because it'll be awhile before I get to play it.

I dont play it. I only do franchise.

I currently have the SF Giants at 69-5 with a team built around Carlos Beltran, David Wright, Aaron Rowand, Grady Sizemore, Matt Cain, James Shields and Tim Lincecum.

They really need to fix their trade AI.
