Starting today, being Sunday the 1st of December, the EU PlayStation store will be featuring the ’12 Deals of Christmas’ promotion. Every 48 hours, two discounts (one for PS3 and one for the PS Vita) will be posted for the store. The promotion will last until December the 25th. The titles on sale will not be announced before their discounts appear on the store.
On a side not, it is rather strange that the video Sony uploaded to accompany the announcement only mentions the PlayStation 3, while the blog page (see source) clearly mentions the discounts will be evenly distributed among PS3 and PS Vita. I would in the least expect them to stamp a PS Vita watermark on the video, which they failed to do, while there is a giant PS3 logo present. Is it just me, or this advertisement another example of Sony’s on-going refusal to appropriately market the Vita?
The first title on sale is FIFA 14, which has dropped in price from €49.99/£44.99 to €24.99/£19.99.
The second title on sale is Spelunky, which has gone from €14.99 to €6.99.
