Keep that PS3 sales momentum going Sony. Nice that Japan gets more PS3 color options

Yup, I don't know if they are a different shade of blue and red, but they are expecting to be released on the 20th of February with 2 controllers.

They need to release the blue and red Vita and the blue and red ps3 in North America. At least we have the White for now.

@Dakblood, I think Sony saved those colors to give the system new life this late in the generation. I think it's a great idea and it will get a lot of people buying another one or replacing the PS3 that broke on them before with a new color.

yeah thats pretty much what im doing for the vita, sony has a sale waiting to happen when they release a red vita in canada and i may get a third ps3 in red to go with my 80gb limited BC *now ylod* and my slim ps3 *now main ps3 to use despite the ps4 possibly coming out this year

always good to have backup systems for retro among other reasons for the future right?

Doesn't Japan always get more color options?

I wish the US would get cool colors like that, I'm a sucker for colors.
MASTER_RAIDEN  +   991d ago
yeah, im a little worried about this one because sony has a bit of a rep for keeping the funky colors inside japan. hopefully thisll be released in the us. then again, having it japan exclusive would make your fancy little imported ps3 that much cooler, wouldnt it? (;

Wii u wont die my friend.. It will continue getting supported by its 1st party just like gamecube did.. However, i dont see them sticking in the hardware business after this generation.. Maybe handhelds but thats a dying market so who knows.. Maybe theyll be like sega n become 3rd party pub/dev company which would be the best option for them.. They can craft some magnificent games that run & play extremely well but their hardware is just terrible.. As well as their philosophies on the gaming market..

Good lord i want a red ps3 super slim with a red psvita to match! So beautiful but i have PS4 to save up for so ill have to wait..

I always wanted the blue GT5 version, but never wanted to pay a lot for it.

"R.I.P Wii U"
...In response to the PS3 Super Slim getting new color schemes, really?

I think it was more of a joke than an opinion.

His comment history says otherwise lol.
cliffyboy21  +   991d ago
if sony would of ship all their colors to the U.S there sales would probably double! everybody would like to choose their color
Godchild1020  +   991d ago
They should do that and also bring over the 12GB console. They should have been brought over the 12GB system, since the start of the year though.

Hopefully they start next gen with black, white, silver, and wood finish ps4's. Those 4 would just make sense since it would match most people's decor.
Erudito87  +   991d ago
wood finish? really lol this isn't a rolls royce
ItsTrue  +   991d ago
"and wood finish ps4's"

Sorry but, I think that idea wooden work.
Oh_Yeah  +   991d ago
I'm not talking about real wood...Something like the old atari 2600 that came with wood print so why not bring it back? Shits fly son. http://www.decalgirl.com/sk...

the blue PS3 looks nice.

The blue and red make the console look cheap, as compared to white, black and silver.
