I was wondering when we would see a silver 1 if ever. Sweet News.

The cool name Satin Silver makes me actually like the color Silver.

I personally think the 20gb model looks sexier than all the SKU's out there.

WTH is STILL isn't bundled with a DS3? Bastages, I want a totally clear PS3 now. The black doesn't count since you have to put a light to it to realize that it IS translucent.

ruibing4324d ago

I think there's still a limited quantity of DS3 for now. They might want to bring it to the west coast before they offer it in every way in Japan, at least I hope they bring it here soon. When I go back home this summer I'd like to have the DS3 be available.

I don't think a clear PS3 would look as interesting as you might think. The PS3 is suppose to have a large amount of heatsinks (I believe I saw it in one of those dissembling articles), so you really wouldn't see as much of the mobo as you would of jsut the large metal casing and heatsinks within the cover.

I forgot that it is semi-clear already...take a bright light to it and you can see through it a little, same with the sixaxis...but in normal lighting, you would never know...

but yeah...just under the plastic on the PS3 is a bunch of aluminum framing and some heatsinks...the drive is just a big metal box, the UPS is a big metal box, and it would appear that most of the circuitry is hidden in some form of...a big metal box...

just release a trim piece in the US please...I wish I could get the black trim that the 20gig had...I hate chrome...its the only thing in my home theatre that has ridiculously cheesy bling for no used to be that most components had brushed aluminum or chrome 'feet'...but they have gotten rid of that, which I appreciate...accept they brought it back for every PS3 except the 20 gig...I may be cutting some electrical tape soon...

Skerj4323d ago

Wow I thought I was the only one who didn't care for the chrome on the 60gb. I thought the solid black on the 20gb looked better, but at the cost of getting a gimped system.

aftrdark214323d ago

Now I don't feel so bad about my 20 GB (Goes to hug 20GB PS3)

Thanks Guys!

jvsantos4323d ago

I'll take the 20GB model over the 40GB or 80GB models any day. It's got 4 USB ports and more importantly the EmotionEngine.

Not like I have the 60GB HDD anymore anyways.

I'm buying that Satin controller. Not the console though. Too late 4 that, unless mine breaks down or something. =p

tweaker4324d ago

Damn Japan has now three different colored SKU's.

Mr Tretton4324d ago

as it was all originally intended. ;)

Tarmgar4323d ago

Japan always gets the good stuff. They get 3 color choices (which is a bigger deal than you might think it is) and we only get black. Although, I do love the shiny black, I'd rather have Silver. Colors can bring people in too :). For my PS2 I had a blue and red see-through controllers, because I wanted another color, then the standard black.

Iamback4323d ago

Japanese care for this color stuff more than westerners, just look at DS

coolfool4324d ago

Given the choice of a more feature rich black (BC and DS3) or a different colour I would go for the more feature rich black anyday.

At the end of the day colours are really just gimmicks that can make your console a little different to your mates. But not much more.

What really p1sses me off is when they try to make you pay more for a diffent colour, even though the cosole is exactly the same!!! Grrrrr
