That's a nice selection of games, and definitely worth the price. I can't wait for the PS4 to reach a point where enough games have been released for it and have aged to make flash sales like this one a regular occurrence.

Anyone remember when the PS3 first hit the scene in 2006? Its hardware was fully backwards-compatible with the PS2 & PS1, but it added considerable expense (an extra $100) to the unit and people complained and whined incessantly. Despite its own lack of backwards-compatibility and the lack of Blu-ray, everyone praised the 360 to high heaven for being $100 dollars cheaper. It sold like hotcakes out of the starting gate and people fawned over it like a gaggle of starstruck preadolescent schoolgirls....and all this despite the 360's extraordinarily high failure rate (just goes to show you how absolutely dumb the average American consumer is. They'll buy the Brooklyn bridge over and over again if everyone else is doing it).

So, here we are, eight years later, with Sony seeming learning from its earlier mistakes and producing a new console for $100 less than its competition....and people are still complaining and whining. You can't have it both ways. Backwards-compatibility will come to the PS4, but now we'll have to wait for it. It won't be as perfect as a hardware solution would have been, but it won't be as expensive either. We're only in year one of what will probably be an 8-10 year lifespan for the PS4. Before it's all over I'm sure the PS4 will enhance its functionality greatly. Just be patient.

Hall of famer Gaylord Perry pitched over two decades in the majors, and he used to rub globs of vaseline on his zipper before every game because he knew the umpires would never (or be too embarrassed to) look there. Everyone and his mother knew Perry was doctoring the ball, but no one could ever catch him in the act. Maybe if Pineda is clever enough he could get away with it too. He just needs to place the pine tar in the right spot.

You're promoting cheating?

Nah. I'd never do anything as sleazy and lowbrow as that. I was merely promoting not getting caught while cheating.

Just an additional suggestion to add to the excellent one posted by Namgis above: Try to get ahead in the count early (That is - throw strike one.). While it is true that not every pitch needs to be a strike, you'll want to avoid pitching from behind in the count too often The biggest mistake you can make while pitching, be it IRL or in a video game, is to constantly fall behind in the count. That's how big innings (most of the time) happen. When you're ahead in the count you put less pressure on yourself to throw strikes and it gives you more flexibility in dealing with hitters. That's when you can mix your pitches & locations most effectively.

It looks good, but I wonder why it's being released for the 360, PC & Vita but not the PS3 or PS4. The PS4 desperately needs some RPGs...and fast!.

I really like the indie titles we've received so far, but to each his own.

@ShoTTyMcNaDeS:

I made that mistake with my PS3, resulting in there being 6 games that I started but hadn't finished when I bought my PS4. For this gen, I will make a concerted effort to complete each game before moving on to the next one.

I'll never understand these threads seeking affirmation and validation. You're an adult. You made a decision. Stand by it. Or don't. Either way, why seek advice from strangers in making your decision? Does the opinion and/or approval of strangers really mean that much? After all, in the end, it's you that has to live with your final decision, right?

BTW, I'm not writing this to be mean or judgmental. I just don't understand threads like this.

I read the first three sentences when I was forced to stop because I was suddenly confronted by an image in my mind of a guy in a clock tower holding a sniper rifle.

Please seek help ASAP.
