Sony delays micro-PS3 and colours current crop

Hue what?

Red PS3

Sony has its hands full with PlayStation this week, discussing its top-loading PS3 release and unveiling three 'limited edition' PlayStation 3s, now available in current design with red, silver and white casing.

The Japanese firm confirmed the existence of a forthcoming third-gen PS3 model, although quashed rumours it would be revealed at Gamescom in August, citing PS3 stock shortage as reasons for delay, VG247 reports.

Meanwhile three new PlayStation colours - Scarlet Red, Satin Silver and Classic White - are available in-store across Europe, according to the PlayStation blog.

Red PS3

We'd already reported the rosy PS3 was on its way earlier this year, and GameStop has offered the white one for a while, so the three new flavours are hardly wowingly fresh.

Still, with Sony confirming the top-loading PS3 will not be launched at Gamescom, the new hues could be incentive for colour-coordinated punters to splash out on a new console. ®
