Style. It's a word most people claim to recognize but few people truly understand. Can you put a double-Windsor knot in your tie? No? Style is currently beyond your reach, Mr. Pseudo-Bond.

But you can make up for that lacking by making your entertainment center shine with the classy yet understated extravagance of a cosmetically personalized PS3 Slim. They did it with the "fat" PS3 and they're doing it again with the slimmed-down model; ColorWare is going nutty with their Crayolas again, and you can benefit. You can tell them exactly how they should use their box of special crayons to decorate your new system; if you don't like what you see in that picture, feel free to design your very own look. You know, one that will say to everyone who walks through the door, "oh, so that's the type of person he/she is." If you already have the Slim and would like to stand out in a crowd, you can get your console "Colorized" for $149. If you don't yet have the Slim but want one, and you require that extra flair, you can buy one directly from ColorWare for $449. Yeah, there's no deal there…we're just giving you the prices. Now, don't you feel better that you have the option to stylize yourself?

ColorWare will work with just about anything in the video game industry; they'll color up controllers and even the musical accessories that come with certain games. It's a bit pricey, but you can't put a price on lookin' fine .

If you want to have it done then wait until your warranty is expired.

no…. yu dnt have 2 wait… they replace the sony warranty with their own matching that of sony's… instead of calling sony, u call colourware, and they will replace yer broken one with a matching refurb (matching meaning they'll give yu 1 bck with the same custom paint job)

Same price as getting the "fat" PS3 colored and still cheaper than getting a DSi colored. LOL Truly amazing.

That is one fine looking machine in the picture. I can't see giving my ps3 any cosmetic surgery for that price though.

I'd rather colour my own up for much less, but then I'd have to keep an eye on it more…

LOL, jeez, that's the same price as me sending in my broken 80gb into Sony to have it repaired XD sorry but I think that has more priority.

You pay half the price of the original system to color it? Nah. It will be easier to do it your self, since it is now matt instead of glossy; especially if you are an artist.

You could do some cool stuff with an airbrush and I'm sure somebody somewhere has used one on their ps3.

Do you know how many more 3s would be moved if Sony just finally came out with colors options?

Never could figure out why Japan has all these color options for gaming hardware, and North America is just always stuck with black. And maybe silver and white YEARS later.

…we like colors, too. ūüôĀ

Like I keep saying, Sony will eventually offer the Slim in different colors, I trust my feelings.

Yeah but in like 4 more years.
I never understood why Sony treats Japan better then the rest of the world, I guess that's how both Canada and the UK must feel about us here in the US.

I wouldn't mind paying 300 or even 400 for a white ps3.

Isn't SONY based in Japan? And they (Japanese) are known for being wild collectors. We should at least get something but the ratio is horrible.

Speaking of a colorful PS3, what is going on with that blue PS3 giveaway? I see it everyday tormenting me. Did "John Shepard" the ghost writer take it? I say ghost writer because almost everyone of his articles Ben usually leaves a comment instead and there is no info on John.

this is exactly what i was talking about before.
constantly day after day sony is being out styled.
i mean what the hell happened?
they use to make some really cool looking stuff but now with the psp go than the slim than the ugh FW 3.0 update.
they have lost their touch.
if i hadent spent all my cash on my holiday i would consider getting my slim done that looks sweet.

one of the reasons why Sony created the slim was to cut production costs & come up with a cheaper price to the consumer. But after paying $149 extra for different color(s), that really defeats the reason to get a slim PS3 (if your wanting a bargain, that is)
