Well, at least some gamers outside Japan get a snazzy PlayStation 3.
For whatever reason, colored game systems seem to be almost exclusive to Japan. While other regions get a few colors here and there, they never quite get the same cosmetic selection.
But finally, the scarlet red PS3 arrives in the UK this month, so that's something. As noted by Eurogamer , the console will be the 320GB version and of course, it'll come with a red DualShock 3 controller. Amazon will have it for £250 on April 27, and Play.com lists a May 4 release with a £240 price tag. Other retailers will have the machine "at their convenience." As for that blue PS3, which is still Japan-exclusive? Nope, Sony UK won't be doing that. Again, as to why…we have no idea.
You can always fork over a hefty chunk and get your PS3 colored, though. ColorWare will take care of that for ya, if you're so inclined.
