Sony has announced today that an exclusive Azurite Blue PlayStation 3 Console is set to hit store shelves in Canada and the United States on October 8, and will only appear in GameStop and EB Games (Canada). This limited edition bundle will come with the super slim PS3 model, a matching DualShock 3 wireless controller, and a 250GB hard drive. The entire bundle will cost about $250 in both countries, and preorders are now available in stores. The new model is set to be in stock for a “limited time”, which means that come the holiday season, it might not be around anymore.
North America is the last group to see the limited edition console, as Sony has already released the bundle earlier this year in Japan, Europe, and Australia alongside a Garnet Red version of the system. Unlike the North American release however, both colours were released with 500GB of hard drive space, as well as two matching DualShock 3 controllers, with the bundles retailing at £250 (or about $389 USD).
Dont forget about the Playstation 4, which will also be hitting store shelves in North America on November 15 and in Europe on November 29. Make sure to stay tuned to Structure Gaming for all the latest.
