Save $20 When You Buy MLB 12 The Show for PS3 and Vita

Save $20 When You Buy MLB 12 The Show for PS3 and Vita

Continuing the MLB 12 The Show “play anywhere promotion” Sony announced today that starting March 6th, if you purchase the popular baseball sim for the PS3 and Vita in the same transaction, you’ll automatically receive $20 off your purchase.

As Tyler Vaught, Sports Product Marketing Manager, stated the overwhelming concern from consumers who had already planned to buy both versions was a big reason for the decision to offer an instant discount. Before this discount gamers were expecting to pay $99 to get their hands on both versions, but with this discount you’ll be able to get it for $79.99. To be clear, this promotion doesn’t start until March 6th meaning those who ordered online via retailers like Amazon.com might not see the discount until after they receive the items, but its very likely that you won’t get the discount at all.

One of the biggest reasons to own both copies this year is that you can now transfer your Season, Franchise and Road to the Show saves between the PS3 and Vita, something many gamers (including myself) are excited about. While some people are already asking for a digital coupon for the PS Store instead of the instant discount, the fact that we even get a discount is good enough for me. Both versions of MLB 12 The Show will be out next week on March 6.

Right now this seems to be a U.S. only and no specific retailers were announced, but for more information you can head over to The Show’s community site:  www.TheShowNation.com.
