At the 2013 GameStop EXPO today, it was announced that PlayStation 3 will soon be sold in Azurite Blue in North America.

The blue PS3 will be sold exclusively at GameStop in the U.S. and EB Games in Canada on October 8. It is interesting that it took so long for the NA region to receive the blue PS3, as Japan, Europe, and Australia have had it available for some time now.

The new blue PS3 will come standard with a 250 GB hard drive and a matching blue DualShock 3, and will cost $249.99. According to GameStop,the PS3 will be available in Azurite Blue for only a limited amount of time. If you find yourself longing for some colorful spice in your gaming life, pre-orders will begin tomorrow in stores and online.

Will you, or someone you know, be picking up an Azurite Blue PS3? Do you wish it had come to North America sooner? Let us know in the comments section below.

Thanks, PlayStation!
