New Colors For Japanese PS2

As usual, Sony is hooking up Japanese gamers with all the cool stuff. This spring, the company will re-release two limited-edition color models of its PlayStation 2 console. The first is the Sakura, a lavender PS2 console themed after the celebrated cherry blossoms currently in bloom. Sony originally introduced the Sakura color model last spring, but is re-issuing it due to its popularity with female gamers. The Sakura PS2 console will be released on March 25 at a retail price of 19,800 yen ($178.12)--the same price as the regular PS2 model--and will come with one matching controller. Additional controllers in the Sakura color can be purchased for 2,800 yen ($25.19), as can a vertical stand for 1,500 yen ($13.49).

The second PS2 model is Ceramic White, which was was originally released last December. At the time, the console was only available as a holiday package that came bundled with a copy of Gran Tourismo 4 Prologue at the price of 22,000 yen ($197.91). The console will be available without the game this time, at the retail price of 19,800 yen ($178.12). As with the Sakura, an additional controller for the Ceramic White will be available for 2,800 yen ($25.19), and a vertical stand will be on sale for 1,500 yen ($13.49). The Ceramic White color model will be released on March 18.

No. They're bad. Very bad. Sony should be ashamed
