Sony will release a $299, 500 gigabyte “Classic White” PlayStation 3 model bundled with a one-year membership for PlayStation Plus in the United States and Canada on January 27, it has announced.
The PlayStation Plus membership means consumers will get 18 games straight out of the box, thanks to the service’s Instant Game Collection, which includes titles like BioShock 2, LittleBigPlanet 2, inFAMOUS 2, and more.
“PlayStation continues to stand for gamers, and as such, we’re excited to give PlayStation fans in North America what they’ve been asking for – a colored PS3 and access to a library of PS3 games for them to download and play instantly through PlayStation Plus and the Instant Game Collection,” said John Koller, vice president of platforms marketing, SCEA. “Gamers are looking for the best value and the best content, and with PlayStation Plus, they’ll always have something new to play, choosing from a library of hit games such as inFAMOUS 2 and LittleBigPlanet 2.”
