PlayStation 3 500GB - Classic White Instant Game Collection Bundle
Sony finally is starting to give us what the Japanese have been getting for years, CUSTOM COLORED and limited edition consoles. I preordered this puppy and hope they sale through the roof so Sony will continue to bring things like this to North America. I can't wait to get my hands on this as it will go great with my white PS Vita. This system comes with a 500GB HDD and a whole year of Playstation Plus. Also remember that when you have P Plus you have it for both your PS3 and PS Vita so you get freebies and discounts on both systems! YES!!!!!
I was the first person in Oklahoma to have this system. I would defiantly recommend it to anyone wanting to purchase a new PS3. It is worth the price with the year of PS Plus.
Good... if you absolutely need a white PS3.
I'm not really crazy about the new "ribbed for your pleasure" style of the PS3, and I personally think it looks even worse in white. That's just me though. I could see a ton of people really enjoying the exclusive color. The upside to this bundle is definitely the 500GB hard drive, but then again, it's very easy to upgrade a PS3 hard drive yourself. Playstation Plus is a great addition to this bundle, but unfortunately if you decide to not pay for it after the first free year that's included, all the games you downloaded will cease to work. Aside from the eventual loss of game functionality, the other downside to Playstation Plus is that you have no choice on what games you get for free each month, so if you don't like what's offered, you're out of luck and will have to cross your fingers that something you'll enjoy is available next month. The exclusive color seems to be the only real perk to this bundle. 500Gb drives are easy to buy and install, and there's too many strings attached to Playstation Plus to make this a must have.
Talk about timing!
My Original PS3 with a 40GB HD that I purchased around 5 years ago finally decided that it would stop playing discs. I was still able to play all my downloaded content but movies and games needing a disc would skip and freeze. I read a bunch of complaints as this is a common problem with the PS3's, especially the older ones. After watching a few online tutorials about how to fix this problem, I came to the conclusion that It was time for a new system since I'm not mechanically inclined to fix it. After convincing my wife that we needed a new system, I brought my old PS3 down to Gamestop. Even with the freezing problem, they still gave me a great trade-in value to use towards the purchase of a new system. After reading up on all the different PS3 bundles, without a doubt...I saw this one as the best value. The two features that lead me to buy this version above others was the free year subscription to Playstation Plus and the 500GB HD. The other bundles came with a 250GB HD and games that are not really my taste. On a side note, I personally like the new design of "the ribbed" PS3 and looks awesome in the white. Reminds me of the first Playstation!
This Looks Like a Fantastic Deal!
For those looking to buy a PlayStation 3, this is a great deal! You get a white PlayStation 3, with a year free of PlayStation Plus! And since the PlayStation Network is offering so many free games to Plus members, those who buy this bundle will get some amazing games for FREE! If you are looking to buy a PlayStation 3, or any new console, THIS is the one to get! Do NOT miss out on this opportunity! The PlayStation 3 is a fantastic console with many incredible exclusive games, and if you buy this bundle you will be able to get one of the best consoles on the market, as well as a downloadable collection of some of the best games the PlayStation 3 has to offer at no additional cost! Once again, TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS OPPORTUNITY! You will NOT be disappointed!
Although this deal comes with 12 games, they are Playstation Plus games. This means that once your Playstation Plus subscription expires, you will no longer have access to any of these games.
Great product, great value!
Short and sweet, traded in my 160 gb slim for the limited edition white 500 gb super slim. VERY happy with it. Takes up less space, operates quieter than my 80 gb ps3 or the 160 gb slim. The white pops and is a great colorway, and being able to swap out games without turning the console on is awesome. Also, no chance for disks to get stuck in the tray. So 500 GB, a sweet color, a YEAR or Playstation Plus (that works on a Vita as well), a dependable tray, if you don't have a PS3 or want more memory, just go buy this already.
Great Product, Great Deal.
I have the older slim model of the Playstation 3. It has served me well, but the amount of space on the hard drive just doesn't work for me. My girlfriend bought the black model of this system that was bundled with Assassins Creed 3. I was quite impressed by the size and design. Many people complained about the functionality of the disc drive, but I honestly find that it is the least important feature to really pay attention to.
First of all, the 500gb hard drive is fantastic. I can't imagine that I would ever fill it up, which is exactly what I like in my electronics.
The 1 year of Playstation Plus is a big bonus. I have had membership for about half a year now and I love it. I have saved a lot of money on games with this service among other things.
Lastly, the color. I love that the system is white. I haven't seen a Playstation console in any other color than black since the silver PS2's release many years ago.
Overall, I have no complaints. It's a great deal for a great product. I'm hoping to snag one of these shortly after release.
This is a great system i got this system for my birthday and i love that its white it looks nice and it functions great the only problem i have are the games i enjoyed playing infamous 2 but the other two games arent really in my favor they are a little childish it would of been nice to get a call of duty game in there because those are the games i am interested in i dont play the other games except for infamous and note that all the other games you get are through playstationplus and once that free year runs out you have to pay to keep your games or you can not use them anymore. overall it is a great system its just the games it includes suck other then infamous 2 that game i actually enjoy playing. if your looking for a good deal on a ps3 i recomend you get this one however if you looking forward to gaming online dont because unless you have more money to buy multyplayer games you wont be playing online any time soon.
GREAT CONSOLE LOOKS SHARP!!!!
I BOUGHT THIS CONSOLE ON THE RELEASE DAY AFTER SELLING MY PS3 SLIM 320GB HARD DRIVE MODEL. THE WHITE SUPER SLIM LOOKS GREAT GOOD DEAL. PLUS IS A 500 GB.
