Blue & Red PS3 Slims to come to Australia

I know, you're all awaiting news on the new console & this isn't it. Hell, not only isn't it the news you've been waiting for, but it's news you probably couldn't care less about. But it's news so here tis;

Sony have officially announced that Australia will be receiving coloured PS3 slims as per other countries such as the UK. They'll be on sale at 'select stockists' from 21st February 2013. (PS3, Sony)

i think new zealand might be in the same boat, no special ps3 for them yet.
Karpetburnz  +   723d ago
damn it! New Zealand should get the same stuff Australia gets? cause I was thinking about getting another PS3 for a birthday present.

A quick search on EB games NZ website and Mighty Ape confirms that both colours will be released in NZ also. Albiet at a steep price.

the red edition is already coming in canada, the blue isnt confirmed yet, so you have black, white and red, the choice is your.
DarkBlood  +   723d ago
really? i must of missed the news

the red ps3 will be a backup as my slim model still works since my phat one ylod, still have it though it just needs that thing to be reheated but i dont know anything about that stuff lol

hopefully the ps3 prices drop i may get a few for retro collection backup sake

If you pick the red console you see how deep the rabbit hole goes...

I would get a blue one if I ever needed a new PS3 :)

I deffo like that blue :).

interesting that these new coloured consoles launch only hours after the big playstation announcement slated for february 20th. leaves me wondering what the ps3 marketing team was thinking if they're announcing a ps4, then launching a new variation of the ps3. seems counter productive imo.
I_live_4_fun  +   723d ago
It could be that Sony is showing they will still strongly support the PS3 even if official details of the PS4 are announced on February 20th. I'm sure Sony will still want people to buy the PS3 even (or especially) if the rumours/speculations that the PS4 will be released later this year or some time next year are true.

Im hoping the news of the PS4 with come with the news of an immediate PS3 price drop. Everyone will be in such a good mood, it would be the ideal time to spur sales, instead of slowing them.

I already have a fat ps3 and the original slim. The blue looks very tempting, as does the red. Decisions, decisions, especially with the new consoles coming out soon. If my slim breaks it is a definite buy though for sure.

A quick look on Playasia.com. Wow! Japan get multiple colours of every model. One's I never even knew existed.

I wish they'd bring back the gunmetal grey ones from MGS.
Bathyj  +   723d ago
The ribbed stripes on the sliding cover would look good in Gunnmetal Grey.
Bowzabub  +   723d ago
Hopefully I'll be getting a gunmetal grey PS4 this year. ;)
Bathyj  +   723d ago
Of course the red one is faster.

Every Australian knows this.
