Not long after the news that North American gamers would receive the Classic White PlayStation 3 , another color appears on the horizon: Garnet Red. Sweet, huh?
Today, Sony Computer Entertainment America LLC (SCEA) has announced the new Garnet Red PS3 system, which will debut with the limited edition God of War: Ascension Legacy Bundle. This awesome package boasts all five previous games in the series, making it the ultimate collector's items for die-hard fans of the series. It'll be available on March 12 for the price of $349.
The red PS3 that comes with it will be emblazoned with Kratos' distinctive tattoo and comes equipped with a 500GB hard drive, so you can really go to town downloading stuff from the PlayStation Network. Sony has even tossed in a 30-day PlayStation Plus trial, which lets users check out the Instant Game Collection that is growing with every passing month. A Plus trial is starting to be standard fare in such bundle packages. Said SCEA vice president of platforms marketing John Koller:
“ We’re excited to introduce this stunning Garnet Red PS3 that pays homage to one of the best franchises ever launched on PlayStation platforms. We wanted to give our fans a complete collection of the series in this bundle so they can relive nostalgic memories of their first God of War adventure or experience the adventure for the first time if they are new to the series."
Okay, now we've got the ball rolling. Let's get some other colors, too!
