Will there be WHITE Super Slim PS3 Systems?

12 replies 5315 views Edited Sep 29, 2012

Hey guys,

 

I've been trying to find out if the states are getting "Classic White" PS3 super slims, and can't find a straight answer. Some say it'll be out October 30th, others say November 30th, some say not at all (except Japan). Wondering if anyone knows for sure if it will come in white in the states.

 

I already have an original 60GB for work and a slim for play, both black, but I'd be willing to get a new super slim just if I could get it in white. How cool would that be? A little classic PS1 top-loading nostalgia on a white PS3, hell yeah!

 

Thanks for any help!

Casey

The short answer is no, the US is not getting the white superslim PS3. It is only for Japan. The only superslims coming out in the US are the 250GB & 500GB (both black).

IMO we won't see colored PS3 systems in this country until after the PS4 comes out, as the PS3 lifespan dies down...

If you are that desperate for a white superslim PS3, you can always buy the Japanese version, since over 99% of PS3 games are region free...

Wish I could, but that'd be far too expensive. I'm still a huge PS1 dork too, and those still aren't region free :smileysad:

 

Again, thank you!

Alternate colored PlayStation consoles tend to come out late in the platform's lifecycle...

because it sells well in japan  fo rthe linted color they produce and not so much  in the states( usa). i  also assume the color of console are expenise to make for them  and  get to the usa.  Every time they do make color scheme of  something for ps brand its limted which mean the cost.. it kinda like a tattoo  regular black  dont cost much but color  is expensive . That my second  thought on that of why  we dont get color ps3's..

 

 But the color ways sell so much  their( japan) than here from a history stand  point with the issues

Local stores are now taking pre-orders for the new white console, at $300CDN.

 

Future Shop has a family limit of three.
