Account Linking + Cross-Platform Progression allows you to move from platform to platform and retain all your items and inventory.
Linking accounts requires an internet connection for each platform you play on, a copy of the MLB The Show 23 game compatible with your console (other platform versions sold separately), and platform network accounts linked to your MLB The Show account.
To link your account for Cross Progression, please ensure that you have an MLB The Show account already - this is different from your PSN, XBOX, or Nintendo accounts.
If you have not yet created an MLB The Show account, you can on theshow.com.
Once you have an account, you can follow the steps below to link or unlink your account as needed.
Cross-Progression is available on all platforms for MLB The Show 23.
*As a reminder, no items, stubs or XP can be transferred between non-linked accounts or between different editions of The Show. For example: No MLB The Show 22 items can be used in MLB The Show 23.
Option 1 via website:
Step 1 – Open a browser and go to theshow.com
