Sony plans to launch its ceramic white PlayStation 3 console in the UK and around the world after it proved a hit in Japan. Well, probably.

Released in Japan in November, the white PS3 has one white DualShock 3 controller and a 40GB hard drive. It has been a solid success. And now, according to filings with the US Federal Communications Commission, Sony is to launch the console in the US.

So it stands to reason that Sony will release the white PlayStation 3 in other territories were punters have proven mildly attracted to the PS3's charms, right? Like, ooh I don't know, the UK, for instance? We shall see.
