PCI Control - Xbox

SDS

Hello! I'm sort of a new player to MLB The Show. I'm an Xbox gamer and I'm extremely happy that MLB has finally made the jump to Xbox. I was able to gain access to the tech test for Xbox One and had a suggestion regarding PCI control. I would like to suggest a PCI sensitivity setting or system. I noticed that as I was playing, my PCI seemed quite sensitive sometimes with the Xbox analog sticks. Now, this could simply be an issue that I had alone, but I also know that the PCI is much smoother and easier to control on PS4/5 compared to what I feel while playing on Xbox. I guess my suggestion doesn't have to mean a universal PCI sensitivity setting, but simply a fix for the PCI on Xbox. Hopefully there's already something similar in the works, but if not, I hope my suggestion and feedback will be considered.

I had the opposite feeling. I don't know if it was just the thumb stick location for me or what. I did not use kontrol freeks or anything on the xbox controller.

Interesting. After all, it wasn't a complete game so there could've been some inconsistency with some mechanics.

SDS

very inconsistent mechanics. the fluidity issues were flagrant

This has been brought up for the past few years. Nothing has changed yet. I'm going to see if the Kontrol Freek rings might help out while I'm hitting & take them off during fielding.

Alot of things can determine/move your PCI. Swing timing has a huge part in where your PCI ends up. Even with good timing and placement with your PCI doesn't matter if you're too early or too late. I have thought that there was no way my PCI could end up where it did sometimes. Then I look at the timing and it was always too early or late. Take time to practice and it will start to feel like an extension of your hand like any other game. I have played 4 years and its still the hardest part of the game for me. Took me almost 2 years just to make world series. It's a hard [censored] game lol!!! Practice practice practice! I promise you will see a difference after a bit.
