Sony’s White PS3 Announced for North America, Europe
Sony announced that the White 320GB PS3 model will soon be available for audiences in North American and Europe, and no longer exclusive to Japan.
Tying in with last month’s price cuts, Sony is throwing us another bone with this sleek looking console. It is estimated that it will be priced the same as other 320GB slim models.
The console ships with two controllers and unlike past white PS3 models that appeared in Japan, which have lacked memory card slots and had smaller storage space, this one should have all the bells and whistles.
Unfortunately, the models will not be released with wide distribution. GameStop is currently the only retailer that will be carrying these models, having knocked a bit of an exclusive deal with Sony.
However, if you’re getting kind of tired of having the same PS3 as all your friends then maybe investing in a nice white one, which more than one source compared stylistically to the Dreamcast of old, is just what you need to break out of your Playstation blues and become the envy of your peers.
This model has been available in Japan since 2010 and should be available to us Westerners this November. It is quite possible that the release will coincide with the debut of Sony’s Playstation TV.
