The PlayStation 3 gets a winter refresh with the announcement of the Classic White PS3 Instant Game Collection Bundle. This brand new bundle comes packed with a special white 500 GB PlayStation 3 console, a white dual shock controller and one year of PlayStation Plus. This brand new package will be available for $299.99 in both the United States and Canada.
The hard drive in this newest bundle is certainly a lot larger than some of the other bundles on the market which in the past have included the 160GB & 250GB slim. Sony’s latest offer, In my opinion is probably the best deal available for any new player that hasn’t jumped into this generation. By including a half terabyte hard drive as well as instant access to up to 12 PlayStation 3 games through Plus, new gamers can jump right in without any added expense.
