Sony Computer Entertainment America has announced that a new color (Classic White) for the PS3, bundled with a year-long membership to PlayStation Plus, will become available for the first time in the United States and Canada on January 27, 2013 via the Classic White PS3 Instant Game Collection Bundle ($299.99 MSRP). It’s about time that Sony dropped a non-standard color PS3 here in the states it seems like Japan and even Europe get all kind of colors, but here we get plain old black. Lots of folks are wishing we would have gotten the red or the blue but at this point we have to take what we can get I guess.
The new PS3 bundle offers exceptional value highlighted by the Classic White PS3 system, with a 500GB hard disk drive. With a one-year membership to PlayStation Plus gamers who purchase the new bundle will enjoy unlimited access to a regularly refreshed library of 12 PS3 games along with six games for PlayStation®Vita (PS Vita), with new games added each month. If you are in the market for a new system, this isn’t a bad bundle to go for and the inclusion of PlayStation Plus makes it even more compelling. As I’ve said before, PlayStation Plus is THE best subscription service in gaming, no contest.
So who’s picking this up?
