CARRY BETWEEN PLATFORMS: Cross platform progression allows your saves to crossover

If you think there's even the slightest chance you'll switch to another system, or just want to secure your save should your console be damaged and you choose a different one, this is a process you need to get done.

Once linked, your cross-saves will carry over between Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, and PS5 without issue.

PLAYSTATION OR XBOX: Login with your platform to connect

After this is done, head into your MLB The Show 21 game and click on the top left icon to get to your Ballplayer and Profile, then select Link Account.

This is likely to give you a prompt to visit "theshow.com/myaccount" but this website link doesn't appear to be working yet.

Instead, you can login via the method described above on TheShow.com, and once in with your Xbox or PlayStation account, click on the bottom left section shown below to register with an account on TheShow.com.

REGISTER ACCOUNT: Check the bottom left below Game Sites

Once your new account is created, it should automatically link to your PlayStation or Xbox account because that's how you were already logged in.

Once this completed for me, the prompt in-game directing me to the previously mentioned broken link was gone and the game said things were properly linked.
