Cross Buy Benefits

MLB The Show 23 is available for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S and Xbox Series X consoles.

The baseball game is cheaper on the last-generation consoles (Switch, PS4, PS4 Pro, Xbox One, Xbox One S and Xbox One X). With that said, the next-generation console edition comes with cross buy benefits.

So, if you purchase MLB The Show 23 for PlayStation 5, then you will also get the PlayStation 4 version of the same title. If you bought this baseball game for Xbox Series S or Xbox Series X, then you will also the Xbox One version.

If you bought the game on the PS4 or Xbox One and would like to eventually upgrade to the PS5 or Series S/X version, then you have to pay a small fee in order to do so from the PlayStation Store or Microsoft Store.

The Digital Deluxe Edition also supports cross buy on the PlayStation and Xbox family of consoles.

By getting the standard version of this game on the Nintendo Switch, PS4 or Xbox One, you will get 5,000 stubs.

The MLB The Show 23 Deluxe Edition comes with cross-buy benefits in addition to having more stubs and packs. If you want to get the most out of this baseball game, then this is the most content-packed options.

The standard edition for the baseball game on PS5, Xbox Series S and Xbox Series S also comes with cross-buy benefits to go along with 10,000 stubs and 5 The Show Packs.
