Sony Australia has today announced that it plans to be bring the pink PlayStation 2 to Australia, with the console to be made available from March 15th. The machine comes with two pink analogue controllers and a pink memory card.
The console was originally announced for the UK back in August, but it's pleasing to know Australia won't miss out on all that pink. With social gaming franchises like Buzz! and SingStar quite popular with the females [And you, you big blouse - Ed], a pink console is likely to be a hit.
"Games such as SingStar have really heightened the appeal of the PlayStation 2 for a whole new diverse audience, who may not previously have considered themselves 'gamers'," said Raoul Bedford, Director of Marketing at Sony Oz. "PlayStation is all about fun and with more and more people, especially women, enjoying a night in with the PlayStation 2, the introduction of this pink version gives them a new and colourful option when purchasing the console."
