GAMING RETAILER Gamestop.co.uk is taking pre-orders for a white version of Sony's Playstation 3 (PS3) priced at £249.
Reports are suggesting that the albino version of the popular console is exclusive to Gamestop, but we've found a white PS3 for £302 on Portagadgets.com. However, this is the slim version whereas Gamestop has the classic version. If you pre-order now then the release date is 1 November, but the web site does warn that this date "may change without notice".
Gamestop has told us that the console is an exclusive and that it has 'limited quantities' so you might want to jump in quickly if you're keen to get hold of one.
The price is quite high, considering that the PS3 console got a price cut last month. In comparison you can get the equivalent 320GB model in black and slim versions from other retailers for around £229. The only differences are the colour and the fact you get an extra controller.
The two bundled controllers are white in colour to match the main unit but you can already buy these for your existing PS3, so think again about trying to show off on that front. µ
