Sony has announced a new white colour variant of the PlayStation 3 in North America, bundled with 500GB of storage and year-long membership to PlayStation Plus for $299. 

The 500GB HDD will surely be useful for users looking to store up to 3,750 games, 297 movies, 198,437 songs, and 80,000 photos. Sony is also bundling a matching white dual-shock controller to keep your gaming set-up nice and styled.

For those not familiar, Sony offers PlayStation Plus for $49.99 a year, giving customers 12 free games for PlayStation 3 and six for PlayStation Vita.

New games are added to the programme monthly and discounts on the PlayStation Store can reach between 10 per cent and 75 per cent. Of course, if you buy the aforementioned bundle, you get one year free.

If you're heart can't wait for the PlayStation 4 rumoured to drop this autumn this may be the PlayStation variant for you. 

No word on a UK release.
