Sony is preparing to ship their latest, greatest PS3 - available for the first time in white instead of black. The $299 package - based on the PS3 'slim' design - includes 500GB of storage and a one year of Playstation Plus membership and a matching white controller. This could be the PS3's swan song, so it is fitting that it comes in white.
That new, paler PlayStation 3 that turned up at Canadian retailers recently? Turns out that's launching US and Canada-wide, according to PR that Sony just let loose. The $299.99 console bundle is the latest version of the PlayStation 3 (with the unfortunate top-mount disc drive) and comes with the largest HDD capacity on any PS3: 500GB.
