Japan Gets Specially Decorated PS3s
Japan gets all sorts of nifty stuff when it comes to hardware.
For example, check out what the Land of the Rising Sun is getting: Special edition versions of the new PlayStation 3 model. The designs are...interesting.
As you might expect, they're in honor of two titles that definitely appeal more to Japanese gamers: Yakuza 5 and The Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage 2. The latter has spawned the "Legend Edition" PS3, which features character art in white along the edge of the PS3, and a controller that portrays a Big Dipper design. This will be available on December 20. The Yakuza 5 "Emblem Edition" PS3 launches earlier on December 6, and boasts gold emblems of the game's crime families, a gold controller, and even a specially-themed USB drive.
How come Sony can't get all imaginative with hardware in this country? How come we don't get cool systems honoring games like Uncharted and Assassin's Creed? Sure, we get goodies and other content in collectors editions and what-have-you, but we rarely see decorated machines. :(
