Azurite Blue 250GB PS3 Coming Exclusively to GameStop, Priced at $249.99 and Dated for October 8th (Update: EB Games Canada as Well)

Update: It has been confirmed via press release that EB Games Canada will be getting the Azurite Blue PS3 on October as well.

Original Story: Coming completely out of nowhere, the PlayStation Twitter account tweeted that an Azurite Blue 250GB PS3 would be available this October, exclusively at GameStop for $249.99.

Well, what they failed to mention is that GameStop gives it an October 8th release date, while also detailing that this is going to be “available for a limited time only,” meaning that it may disappear after the holidays:


Unless you really want a blue PS3, GameStop does also have the Uncharted 3 GOTY 250GB PS3 for that same $249.99, while the Grand Theft Auto V PS3 bundle is out on September 17th for $269.99.

So far, it doesn’t seem as though EB Games Canada will be offering the Blue PS3 (we’ll keep checking), but the Uncharted 3 GOTY PS3 is $249.99 there as well, and you can pre-order the GTA V PS3 bundle from them if you’d like.

And there’s also the 12GB PS3.
