Currently, the only way to get the 500GB Super Slim PlayStation 3 is if you pick up the Assassin’s Creed III 500GB Bundle for $299.99. It looks like all of that is going to change though, as VideoGamesPlus has posted a listing for the system without Assassin’s Creed III.
This particular PlayStation 3 500GB Super Slim will still retail for $299.99, but it comes with a free 12 month subscription of PlayStation Plus. As the poorly uploaded box shot by VGP shows you (we couldn’t blow it up any more unfortunately), the PS+ card has an over $200 value in terms of free games via the Instant Game Collection.
So, if you want to pick up one of the really thin PS3 systems and don’t care for either the Uncharted 3: GOTY 250GB Bundle or the ACIII 500GB Bundle, this is definitely the one for you.
If you don’t live in Canada, other retailers might be listing it soon, assuming that this is real and will be making its way to all of North America or possibly even Europe. PSLS will keep you updated on whether the bundle spreads to other retailers.
