Sony: “MLB 13: The Show Will Not be a Part of the Cross-Buy Program”

When Amazon began running their promotion for MLB 13: The Show that sees you receiving $20 off if you buy both the PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Vita versions of the game, it was pretty much confirmation that the upcoming baseball game wouldn’t include Cross Buy.

No big surprise there. Each version has always been treated as its own franchise.

I don't think that's entirely it. It probably has every bit to do w/ Licensing. Each copy would count as two sales doubling what SCE pays MLB. At least I'd imagine MLB sees a piece of the pie for each game sold. Because of that it would be impossible for Sony to offer Cross Buy w/o taking a pounding on this franchise financially...

I have to admit though. Having MLB Cross Buy would be great to see. It seems I never get as much time as I'd like in w/ MLB but w/ Cross Buy it would definitely not only give me the incentive to buy more often but know that I'll actually get the game time in to warrant buying it. I'd even consider a $70 Special Edition that offers Cross Buy if $ [Royalties] were the issue.

The writing was pretty much on the wall when Amazon ran that deal.

Lame. I guess it's neither for me.

Wait... so, you were only buying the game because you got a copy of it on another platform?

That makes, literally, no sense. A nice incentive, but hardly a reason to buy a game. You either want the game or you don't.

Yes and no I would love to be able to play on my ps3 and when im on the go play on my vita with cloud saving would be amazing.

I like The Show, but I wasn't sure about buying this year's since I already have last year's. If it were cross buy, then I would, but it's not. So...

I guess it's neither for me.
