MLB 13: The Show Cross-Buy “Still to be Determined”

It was just yesterday that Sony officially revealed MLB 13: The Show for PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita. We knew it was coming – The Show is the most popular baseball videogame franchise in the world – but now we know for sure that it’ll be released Stateside on March 5, 2013.

What we didn’t know, however, is whether MLB 13: The Show would take advantage of Sony’s vaunted cross-buy program, in which gamers get the Vita version of a game for free when buying the PS3 iteration (or, conceivably, vice-versa). MLB 12: The Show was the very first game to employ cross-saving between Vita and PS3, but players, unfortunately, had to buy both versions separately, hitting their wallet hard.

I wanted to know what Sony’s plan was, so I asked. A representative got back to me, telling me that whether or not MLB 13: The Show will utilize cross-buy or not “is still to be determined.” However, he also noted that “a complete answer” to the question will be forthcoming “by the new year.” (MLB 13: The Show, PS Vita, PS3)

I don't think this game needs it. I was happy with the 20 dollars off the Vita version when buying the PS3 copy for a limited time. And I would understand if they went that route again.

Cross-buy is an amazing deal, but we can't expect it for every game.

Hope they do. Mlb 13 was very good on ps vita, and im getting a ps3 for xmas. And I hope they use the cross controller feature on the ps vita.

Let's make it happen. I buy this game for PS3 annually.

You'll never see cross buy with big games. People will buy this title anyways. Imagine the money lost.

Playstation All-Stars and Sly Cooper are big titles and they have Cross-buy, Ratchet & Clank is another big one.

As mention above in ny earlier post; The buy the PS3 version and get 20 dollars off the Vita version was great for me. And before this Cross-buy incentive, people that bought both, were okay with it too.

I hope so. I rarely buy the PS3 version(twice... no, once so far), but I'd be far more inclined to get it if I knew I was getting the Vita version, too.

At least free or $20 off for the vita version would be healthy not only for the gaming industry and for my wallet too..
