Limited Edition White 500GB PS3 Bundle Confirmed for North America, Arrives this Month

It was just over a month ago when we let you know about Amazon listing a brand new White PS3 Bundle with 12 months of PlayStation Plus for January 29th, which has since been removed, but it has now appeared on Future Shop’s website, showcasing a January 27th release date and $299.99 price point.
-PSLS (PS3)

Another PS3 bundle right before this rumored announcement of the PS4? I guess it will sell because it's white...

It's certainly the only reason to buy this bundle. Some people just love white consoles (as opposed to the black look that's dominated this generation's market.

I would certainly consider it, but then again it's $300. It's not expensive, but I sure as heck don't need 500GB when I can't even fill up my 80GB BC phat.

I really think it was a mistake not dropping the price of the ps3 and instead just increasing the hard drive space and adding bonuses in the bundles. I would definitely have bought a new PS3 for $200 that doesn't come with anything else.

You are aware the best selling game console of all time the PS2 is still being sold right?
UnholyLight  +   704d ago
How is that racist. YOU ARE STUPID, I believe he meant because they PS3 has always been black, that having a "special edition" in white will have people running for it.

Fkin idiots. Talking about you @Greyslash

Relax, he was joking.
Greyslash  +   704d ago
It was a joke? Jesus, get the stick out of you ass and learn to laugh a little. Don't take everything so seriously.

is that a joke?

Because you cant actually see it....
profgerbik  +   704d ago
@omi25p Are you joking?

You should get a better TV, Monitor or get your eyes checked because I can see it perfectly.
omi25p  +   702d ago
yes because a white square on a white background is just so clear.
alexcosborn  +   704d ago
Very sleek.
Tvensky  +   703d ago
relax, it was a joke :D jokes all around us, you joke I joke! everybody is joking!

On topic.. I had Silver PS2, If something happens to my original fat 60 gig ps3, I will be thinking to buy a white one.. that's if ps4 is not over the horizon...
ftwrthtx  +   704d ago
Nice looking PS3 but I'm not a fan of the new model.
BringingTheThunder  +   704d ago
it looks ok. i could just do without top loading.
ftwrthtx  +   704d ago
It's definitely a cheaper build, and I understand the thought process behind it, but I prefer my launch 60GB and my PS3 slim. Both seem to be better built.

They need to bring over the 12 GB PS3 from Europe so they can match the cheapest price of the 360 instead of bringing over a model that's $300.
nevin1  +   704d ago
Do you think the 4GB 360 model outsells the higher price 360?
Ryo-Hazuki  +   704d ago
yes. The majority of people who buy consoles this late in the generation are casuals. No matter if they are getting a good deal or not... entry price matters to them.
UnholyLight  +   704d ago
I can't believe anyone would be RETARDED enough to buy a 4gb. We have lived in a society long enough with iPods and iPads and game consoles to know that 4Gb means you literally have MAYBE 3Gb of space actually on the console. Which means you would likely not be able to download ANYTHING.

Seriously, even if you're a casual, you're obviously stupid to buy something like this, especially when it's like $100 more for 50x the storage
profgerbik  +   704d ago
Hi Ryo, I love your games. I still play Shenmue.

Want!
TrendyGamers  +   704d ago
And it comes with PS+! Want more!
b_one  +   704d ago
now we need to wait as someone will call it racist edition
doctorstrange  +   704d ago
Well as long as Sony doesn't bring back their "White is coming" ads...
b_one  +   704d ago
Well, US is a strange country... btw comment number 1.1 makes my words about racism outdated.
MASTER_RAIDEN  +   704d ago
nice sony. instead of releasing all these limited editions though, how about releasing a readily available, $199 PS3 and bury the competition once and for all?
BringingTheThunder  +   704d ago
soon
execution17  +   704d ago
Do Want!
dbjj12088  +   704d ago
Could buy a smaller harddrive PS3 and install a bigger one for a lot less money.
sitharrefus  +   704d ago
For some reason white consoles have that "I WANT" in all of us...... Looks sick btw
anzil  +   704d ago
Except the xbox360!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
TrendyGamers  +   704d ago
When it's only available in a Kinect Star Wars Bundle it's a bit of a tough sell.
dubt72  +   704d ago
They had that skylanders bundle at xmas for like 149/159.
LarryBraz  +   704d ago
I like the clean look of white consoles. THe xbox never really had white outside of the Star Wars edition. That putty color wasn't white, it was just plain ugly!
mi_titan27  +   704d ago
The new xbox slim does have a gloss white, but it only has a 4gb hdd
skrug  +   704d ago
Didnt the xbox 360 launch in white? lol
FarCryLover182  +   704d ago
Even if PS4 is undoubtedly coming this fall, this is still a good collectors item.
MadMen  +   704d ago
New model is weak

I like the Mid Model
DarkBlood  +   704d ago
limited edition? what white is hard to produce or something?
ExCest  +   704d ago
No?

They only want to make a few of them because they still need to sell the black ones? Calling it limited edition will help it sell?

But naturally, white is more expensive than black?
DarkBlood  +   704d ago
well the real question i think we should all be asking here is wheres my red ps3 and vita damn it? lol
ExCest  +   704d ago
That, my young padawan, will never happen on Western shores.

Import one.
gninja92  +   704d ago
how is it being white more expensive why ? casue they need to clean all the PS bullshit of the outer areas?
AznGaara  +   704d ago
You know if they kept the sleekness throughout the whole kid instead of going for that lines texture on the top a lot more people would like this.
josephayal  +   704d ago
Ice Ice Baby tun tun tun tun
Woaa another Gorgeous PS3 Model
Y_5150  +   704d ago
I'm getting this. It'll look amazing right beside my white Vita. :P

CaptainPunch  +   704d ago
If this gets released in the U.S. I'll be picking it up.
gninja92  +   704d ago
HONESTLY this is just a case of "too little too late" they should have had white PS3s alongside the black ones since day one. adding it now. is just a waste instead of adding color schemes and bigger HDDs they could be refocusing efforts on what the community actually requested but i guess its just impossiblle to fix stupid in this day and age when stupidity is more often than not rewarded over ingenuity.
MYSTERIO360  +   703d ago
A bit late though but i hope Sony go with effective advertising(in North america)in the future to sell their consoles then these limited offers.
o-Sunny-o  +   703d ago
A kick in the balls! I just bought the 500gb Assassin Creed one. Wow I'm self destruct now.
PhoenixRising37  +   703d ago
I wish they would spend more time working on the new console rather than thinking of more ways to sell the PS3.
