Hey, so like…can we be next?

Colored PlayStation 3 systems have difficulty finding their way to North America; in fact, many don't make it out of Japan. But our Australian friends can soon exult in a new color option at the end of the month.

They'll join UK gamers in having access to the very cool scarlet red PS3 console. As noted by CVG , the 320GB system will land in Australian stores on May 31 with a retail price tag of AU$460 (about $470 US). It'll come with two matching Dual Shock 3 controllers as well. For the record, this same console will be available in the UK on May 11. Now, all we need to do is petition Sony to get more colors available in this country, and we'll be all set. I want a deep forest green one, or maybe a blue one…

However, if you're desperate for a flashy new color and don't want to wait, you can always visit ColorWare and fork over a pretty penny for a…uh…prettier machine.

This whole things is so unfair to Americans. I will dye mine red with the blood of whoever says no to colors for America.

Why can't we get a platinum brushed color.

Any of the Bose wave music system colors will do good to.

wish $ony would release a titanium blue or midnight blue one!
i wish they would release a new designed ps3 same style and shape of the slim ps3 but back in the chrome and piano black finish.
i was so tempted to buy a 60GB EB had the other day but little too expensive at 460 bucks!
far too expensive, especially considering you can get the same thing off ebay for around 300.

I to like the piano black. My fat PS3 is still kicking! I hope it makes it all the way through to the next gen. But I may still get another PS3 just in case. My backlog of PS3 games is legendary! ūüôā

speaking of different colours i wish $ony would do more game skins!
M$ has done so many themed 360s, reach, gears 3, MW3, resident evil 5.

I would be willing to pay $400 for a colored PS3…If Sony wants to push console sales in the US, I think they would do better with a few color choices.

I honestly don't care. Minus the colour, everything else is the exact same. It makes no difference.
