Bundled Price of MLB 12: The Show for PS3 and Vita is $79.99

#1 Edited by Demon_Sandwich (119 posts) -

So with the first PSN title out of the way (Motorstorm RC) . Sony looks to retail to bundle console and vita version of MLB for $79.99. My question to the memebers of the Giant Bomb Vita Community is this a good look on future of all vita titles or will sony be the lone publisher taking this route. http://blog.us.playstation.com/2012/03/01/pick-up-mlb-12-the-show-on-ps3-and-ps-vita-save-20/

IIn my personal opinion. I love the idea. I hope it becomes the standard. I wont personally be buying this bundle just due to the quality of titles that have hit these past 4 weeks but when i look to pick up MLB the show I will probably go for the bundel. I really do hope publishers take this and run with it.

It doesn't sound too expensive but I don't think it's something most people will go for.

I think if the same game comes out on each system and if you can transfer saves like you can in MLB then I love it. My guess is Sony will be the only one to do this in the near future but look for EA to do this with their sport titles.

That's more money than I'd be interested in spending for a license to play a game on both platforms.  $10 extra is the most I'd spend, but I'm not really sure if I'd pay for it at all.

It's a good deal when you consider the prices when bought separate. I'll be happy when they bundle games i care about.

I'm really hoping for a "buy the game on PS3, get a digital download of the Vita game for free" kind of deal.

@Legend: Are you serious? It costs money to port games. If you're just giving it away for free then you are not going to even recoup production costs.
