CC Sabathia Talks MLB 12 The Show for PS Vita

Eric Levine's Avatar Posted by SCEA PR Manager

Sports fans! We’re less than 24 hours away from the release of MLB 12 The Show and as you know, the game will be available on PS3 and PS Vita. This year, in addition to our cover athlete, we have multiple athletes who will be partnering with The Show to serve as ambassadors for the game. One of these players is New York Yankees ace CC Sabathia, a proclaimed gamer who takes his PS3 on the road with him during the season. He recently helped us promote MLB 12 in New York City, and you can see the event notes and pics on (check out that sweet custom PS3!). Here’s also a look at our Sabathia gameplay trailer on

So, now that PS Vita is out in the wild, CC has a console-like experience that he can take with him anytime, anywhere, and with the cross functionality between PS3 and PS Vita, he can now take his Franchise, Season, and Road to The Show save files up to the cloud where he can then access those files on either platform. CC recently sat down with us to talk about his impressions of MLB 12 The Show for PS Vita — see what he thinks in the video above.

Welcome to The Show!

Great idea having the Yankee ace discuss a game featuring a Redsox player on the cover.

I agree with Major_Hoare why isn’t CC on the cover. The video, on the other hand, was sharp and clear and wonderful and made me want to hold a VITA in my hands. I don’t own a Vita. Sony lets make this happen, can you get me one?

Gonzalez and Bautista deserve to be on the. Bautista would be all the rage if he played for New york.

I bet it will get alot of use by him even more so since sony gave a ton of vitas away to a whole grip of celebrites just for being famous.

I’m surprised that C.C. Sabathia can actually play a Vita. It must be hard to press all of the buttons with his massive hands. lol He’s such a cool and down to earth person. Kudos to Sony for having C.C. as an ambassador for MLB 12 The Show.

C.C. Sabathia is one of my favorite pitchers in MLB. I loved it when he pitched for my cleveland indians from 2001 to mid 2008 and he is still a good pitcher now with the yankees. Looking forward to get MLB 12 the show soon from amazon and playing it on my PS3.

Wanted to advise anyone in Canada if you want both the PS3 and Vita games at the discounted price.

BestBuy has the offer… buy both and get a $20.00 discount.
