As for the stuff on sale, we have the following handy chart:


One thing to note is that I don’t have a PlayStation Vita, so I can’t confirm offhand whether or not these sale prices (undoubtedly in American dollars) translate to the same amount in Canadian. However, the PlayStation Canada Twitter account did tweet about the sale, so it seems safe enough to assume there will at least be some sort of comparable discount on these products.

Speaking of Twitter, the PlayStation Blog post featuring the details of the sale also say to follow @HeyPlayStation for chances to win PlayStation Vita games and a PlayStation Vita Borderlands 2 bundle at the end of the week. I tried checking the rules link the Twitter account provides, but I couldn’t find any actual rules regarding this, so I don’t know whether Canadians are eligible or not.
