PS2 Gets Funky!
During the life of a system, a time will eventually approach where colored peripherals will liven it up. The PSOne enjoyed controllers and memory cards available in many different colors, and it is now time for the PS2 to follow suit. Scheduled for release on June 27 in Japan, consumers will now be able to buy memory cards and DualShock 2 controllers in four new colors, such as Lemon (yellow), Emerald (green), Crimson (Red), and Crystal (clear). As an added perk, Sony will drop the price of the devices down to 2500 yen for a DualShock 2 controller, and 2800 yen for an 8 MB card.
