Sony has re-sprayed the PlayStation 3 with a sexy limited edition gunmetal grey tint to tie-in with the impending release of the eagerly anticipated Metal Gear Solid 4.

Sony's gunmetal grey PS3

The announcement was made on Sony’s US PlayStation blog, which sadly means there’s been no mention of a potential release for UK PS3 fans.

Although the new colour console doesn’t have any extra features, it does come with a suitably hued controller and the words “Metal Gear Solid 4 – Limited Edition” etched onto the front. But Register Hardware is disappointed that there are no artificial bullet holes across the console’s face.

The redesigned PlayStation Store should make navigation easier

It’s yet to be confirmed what capacity the Gunmetal Grey PS3 will have. But the company already offers the gunmetal grey edition in Japan as a 40GB model.

The user interface should be more dynamic

The limited edition Gunmetal Grey PS3 will go on sale in the US on 12 June - the same day MGS4 goes on sale across Europe.

Sony has also confirmed that a revamped PlayStation Store will be launched on 15 April, which it has reorganised due to customer demand for a better interface and easier navigation.

A week later, Metal Gear Online Premiere Beta will also be available through the redesigned store, allowing up to 16 players sample the multi-player element within MGS4. Gamers will have access to two of the game’s maps and five game modes, including Deathmatch.
