SKU & Upgrade Paths

How do I access both the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S versions?

If you want access to both the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S versions of MLB The Show 22, please ensure you purchase the MVP Edition or Digital Deluxe Edition on the platform of your choice. The MVP Edition will include compilation disc enabling play on both Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S.

Is the Disc required to play the MVP Edition on the PlayStation 5?

The PlayStation 4 disc must be inserted in your PlayStation 5 console to play the PlayStation 5 version of MLB The Show 22.

If I buy the Standard Edition of MLB the Show 22 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One , can I later upgrade the Standard Edition on PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S?

If you plan on purchasing the Standard Edition of MLB The Show 22 on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One and have plans of upgrading to the PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X|S version, you will need to purchase the digital edition to take advantage of the $10 USD upgrade offer.

If I purchase on multiple platforms and my accounts are linked, will I get the bonus items from each purchase?

It varies by the platform and the edition you purchase. Linking accounts between Xbox and PlayStation will allow you to receive the bonuses from purchase of MLB The Show 22 on those platforms, regardless of which edition of the game you purchased.  

Players who purchase the Digital Deluxe Edition or the digital version of the Standard Edition of MLB The Show 22 for Nintendo Switch will not be able to share bonus items across platforms, even with linked accounts. Because of this, it is recommended you make the PlayStation or Xbox versions of the game your primary linked platform, especially if you have bonuses on those systems, you wish you access through cross-progression. Bonus items from digital Nintendo Switch copies of the game may not be visible again until you unlink that version from your account. 

Players who purchase the physical version of the Standard Edition on Nintendo Switch can share bonus items but are advised to link the account in-game (available on 4/1), BEFORE entering any voucher codes you may have, to avoid potential issues with redeeming them.
