Sony PS3 White UK release date set for November 1st

White PlayStation 3 to hit UK ahead of Christmas

A White PS3 UK release date has been set for a pre-Christmas arrival

Sony has confirmed it is to expand sales of the white PS3 console from its Japanese roots with a Sony PlayStation 3 white UK release date set for November 1st.

Set to be offered exclusively through retailer GameStop in the UK the white Sony PS3 hit stores in Japan back in July and will land on UK shores boasting a 320GB hard drive and a £249.97 price tag.

Asides from its lighter toned finish the 320GB white PS3 is the same as its black-hued counterpart but as Apple proved with the iPhone 4 people will still go crazy for a white version of the same piece of tech.

Set to launch in time for the pre-Christmas shopping rush the white PS3 is set to go up against the Nintendo 3DS and Xbox 360 with Kinect as the top selling games console.

Does the UK launch of the white PS3 have you itching to upgrade to the albino device? Let us know via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
