After running not one but two different sales on the PAL PlayStation Store for users from Europe and other parts of the world, Sony has unveiled a special promotion for North American PS Store users, in the form of the Holiday Essentials Sale.Seeing as how quite a lot of people will receive PlayStation 3 or PS Vita consoles in honor of the winter holidays, Sony is trying to get them interested in buying things from its own online PlayStation Store.
We already saw two great deals for PAL regions, in the form of the 12 Deals of Christmas or the Festive Sale, and now Sony has revealed a special offer for North America, namely the Holiday Essentials sale.
For the next three weeks, Sony will slash the prices of many great games both for the PlayStation 3 and the PlayStation Vita consoles.
Regular PS Store visitors will net 30% discounts on these games while those who also have a PlayStation Plus subscription will be able to enjoy a 50% discount on all of them.
