Apparently, Canada is going to have available a PS3 that isn’t going to be black. Announced today, Sony Computer Entertainment will release a White Playstation 3 Slim on January 27, 2012 which isn’t too far from now. Listing for the system has appeared on Best Buy Canada & Future Shop for preorder at the price of $299.99.
The system is fairly bare boned. It has a 500GB hard drive & one white DualShock 3 wireless controller. It’s labelled as Crystal White & a Limited Edition bundle. What makes it a LE bundle is the one year free subscription to Playstation Plus. Regardless if it’s an actual bundle or not, the crystal white colour is probably more than enough to make this an LE system even though Sony didn’t mention how many of these will be available.
Update: The Playstation Blog has now mentioned that the White PS3 is available in North America. So, it’s not a Canadian exclusive like the Wii Mini like I figured.
