Been holding out for a white PlayStation 3? Well, if you have, Sony has provided you with just that. Starting January 27, Sony will be selling a white version of the iconic PlayStation 3, likely as a way to boost sales just a few months before the rumored release of the PlayStation 4.

The console will come with a matching "Classic White" controller, a 500GB hard drive, and a year-long subscription to PlayStation Plus. PlayStation Plus comes with a collection of downloadable PlayStation 3 and Vita games. The current list of games includes LittleBigPlanet 2, BioShock 2, Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition, Borderlands, Gotham City Impostors, and 7 others.

The console will only set you back $300, which is quite a deal when you add in all of the free games and such. But, will it be enough to boost sales when the PlayStation 4 is rumored to be so close around the corner? We'll have to wait and see.
