UPDATE: Confirmed via press release. The Classic White Bundle will launch for $299.99 on January 27, 2013.
Original story: The Crystal White Superslim PlayStation 3 console may at last be hitting the United States and Canada. Product pages for a White PS3 Superslim Bundle appeared on both Best Buy's American and Canadian websites today. The $299.99 bundle will come with a 500 GB Crystal White Superslim PS3 and one year of PlayStation Plus.
While the box features images and cover art from LittleBigPlanet 2, Infamous 2, and Ratchet & Clank: All 4 One, these games do not come in the form of a digital download or physical copies. Instead, Sony is advertising them as coming with this bundle via the Instant Game Collection that comes with the PlayStation Plus membership.
A 320 GB version of the Crystal White system has already been released in Japan, Europe, and Australia.
