Missing out on the influx of potential holiday cash, Sony confirmed that PlayStation Network cards will arrive in North America early next year. The cards act in the same capacity as the Wii and Xbox 360 point cards -- except Sony uses actual dollar amounts, hallelujah!

The first solid evidence of the cards appeared last week as outlets received holiday greetings with the point cards in dollar amounts. Sony made an acknowledgment of the cards on their PlayStation Blog late last week and followed it up with a statement to GI.biz today. No specific denominations of PSN cards have been announced, but we can confirm $20 is definitely in there.
