Oh, come ON. Does Sony really think that only the Japanese like pretty colors?
For whatever reason, the invisible yet still irritating Color Police continue to make North America off-limits to the influx of freshly-hued hardware. According to The Gamer Limit , Sony has announced that the "Carnival Colors" for the PSP are heading to Japan. Here they come in "Radiant Red," "Vibrant Blue," "Bright Yellow," and "Spirited Green." Furthermore, each fun-colored PSP will get its own accessory bundle pack, which will feature a pouch, wrist strap and 4GB memory stick, all of which will be of the same color as the PSP. They'll be available in the Land of the Rising Sun soon, but don't count on them arriving in the U.S. or Europe; we're the boring regions that only want black and white. Every once in a while, a special bundle will give us the chance to nab a Limited Edition, specially designed PSP, but our standard hardware choices aren't very diverse. And that goes for everyone; Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo. What's the deal? Wouldn't you like the option of these Carnival Colors?
Despite the fact that 2008 was the PSP's best year yet, the handheld could use a little help. We would prefer the assistance to come in the form of great software, but some simple cosmetic choices would be appreciated, too.
