Hey, we like colors, too, you know. It isn't just the Japanese who might want a few cosmetic options for their PSP, which is why this commercial has caused hope to return to the minds of North American gamers.
The video, seen at Everyday PlayStation and taken from a Joystiq feed, shows off seven total colors for Sony's sleek portable unit. It has already been available in different colors in Japan but we still only have Piano Black and Ceramic White in the U.S., along with a few Limited Edition PSPs that came with certain bundle packages. We've been hearing a lot of rumors on the PSP side of things, and we expect plenty of big news and announcements at E3 in a few months time. There's also the distinct possibility that we'll see the PSP-4000 or PSP 2 unveiled at the show, which is why new colors may not be out of the realm of the possibility. Sony has already gone on record saying they may have "under-supported" the PSP in the recent past, and they're not about to do that again. So far this year, we really have seen more Sony media related to their handheld and we certainly anticipate more of that as the year rolls on. As for these new colors, who wouldn't want the chance to nab a nice blue or green PSP? Maybe we'll start seeing that commercial on North American television some time soon…?
We'll definitely keep an eye on any new developments concerning the PSP, and while new colors don't exactly qualify as groundbreaking news, it's still interesting.
