No. There is no Google play edition s3.
Sign up for the new Copy file storage service with this link and get both of us an extra 5 GB!
Or sign up for Dropbox with this link and we can both grab some extra storage!

CNexus is right, there isn't a GPe of the S3, but the difference between a normal and GPe of a phone is that the normal one has the regular ROM (in the S3's case, 4.3 with TouchWiz) while the GPe has a stock build of Android on it, and therefore receives updates from Google instead of the OEM that built the hardware. If you wanted to make it 'GPe', you could flash Cyanogenmod 11 or SlimKat (two most stable AOSP Kit Kat ROMs I've found so far).
