If you’re one of the many gamers who are looking to purchase both the Playstation 3 and Playstation Vita versions of MLB 12 The Show then we have good news for you. Sony has announced that there will be a discount offered for purchasing both versions at retailers across North America.
Starting on March 6th, if you purchase MLB 12 The Show for the PS3 and Playstation Vita, you’ll earn a $20 savings. Buying each title together at the same time when you checkout at your favorite retailer, the games will only cost you $79.99.
Why would you want to have the game on both systems if you own them? Sony announced awhile back that fans will be able to take their saved franchises, season, or Road to the Show files via the Playstation Network.
It’s a smart move by Sony to give retailers the ability to offer this deal as it was highly wanted by fans of the game. Retailers such as Amazon and Best Buy don’t appear to be offering the deal currently, mostly because they would be scrambling to get everything setup correctly. We’re expecting everything to be offered by March 6th, but some retailers may only be able to offer the deal as an in-store offer.

UPDATE: Amazon has now updated their website with the MLB 12 The Show for both the Vita and PS3 for only $80. There’s a few days left until the release of the title, so it’s the perfect time to place your pre-order.
