Brits get red PlayStation 3 next month
Sony reckons British punters will warm to a red version of the PlayStation 3, which ends its Japan-only exclusivity with a UK launch early next month.
Despite missing the rosy rush of Valentine's Day, Sony hopes the rare colour will be enough to tempt shoppers into parting with roughly £250.
The 320GB console comes with a matching red controller and is available for pre-order on Amazon. Shipping starts on 4 May.
While there are a few white PS3s floating around after an exclusive deal with GameStop last Christmas, it's nice to see us Brits get different colour options for a change.
It doesn't look like this one is heading to the States either, so we should consider ourselves lucky. There's still practically a rainbow of them available in Japan, though. ®
Re: Never mind the colour
There's no way in hell they'll bring back BC. They can make more money by selling you HD remakes of PS2 games.
My old Xbox360 used to go this colour
when it was on for about an hour.
RE: Hard Off
Sounds like Cash Converters, but without the inherent ripping off of both the buyer and seller.
Sonys big plan
1) Release something that is neither new nor novel, but has been available for ages if you really wanted to go to the trouble of sourcing one.
That isn't red.
