Azurite Blue PS3 becomes GameStop exclusive Oct. 8

Though plenty of buzz surrounds the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles right now, those in the market for a new PlayStation 3 may be interested in the flashy Azurite Blue pictured above, coming exclusively to GameStop in North America and Canada on October 8.

The console – based on the system's third hardware revision – comes with the requisite DualShock 3 controller and 250GB of storage. Pre-orders for this $249.99 PS3 will open through GameStop tomorrow.

The Azurite Blue console, along with its Garnet Red counterpart, was first announced for Japan and Europe back in January. The Garnet Red console made its way over here in a special God of War: Ascension bundle earlier this year.
