Classic White PS3 Bundle

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.”

    Ooooh. Nice color.

  • That is a sweet deal.

  • Snow Cone

    It’s about time NA got a new color. Wish the other slim came in white over here. Still think this new slim is super ugly.

    • AnimusVox

      I agree. I wish we got the Tales of Xillia system.

      • ShinAsura

        Ya, Japan gets more game based systems than anyone else.

        • AnimusVox

          Yeah which I don’t quite understand. It’s not like regions outside of Japan don’t like special edition systems :c

  • PrinceHeir

    despite liking the White colour(even bought the AC3 White Vita pack, i don’t even like the game nor plan to play it)

    really don’t like the new Slim desing :(

    why not the version 1?

    much MUCH better

  • Prodigy-X

    Good for late adopters.

  • I hope for Ps4 launch they seriously release a WHITE PS4.

    • ShinAsura

      I’m probably going to get a LE bundle and not the launch version

  • ShinAsura

    Won’t buy another console till PS4

  • momoh410

    oh they just got that.. i bought the white one first week of January.. it was available since late last year.. :) although it didn’t have PS plus..

  • KurisuMakise

    Plus is really becoming a value proposition. Glad I’m a Pluser myself and ah, sad I missed the white boat but I’m holding down the 60GB, so I won’t complain.
