Special color PS3 consoles coming in Japan
I'll never understand why Japan gets so many alternate color PS3 consoles and bundles that never appear in the US. If you live in Japan and are in the market for a new PS3, Sony has some new super-slim consoles will be shipping later this month in new colors.
The consoles will be available in azurite blue and garnet red. Both consoles also include a wireless controller that matches. The consoles have 250 GB hard drives and will sell for ¥24,980. That converts to about $279 here in the US.
The new super-thin PS3 is significantly thinner than the second-generation slim PS3. It's unclear from the pictures but it almost looks as if it has a sliding door on top to access the Blu-ray drive. It also appears that the consoles will ship with a silver stand allowing you to put them on their side.
