Sony Japan Reveals 320GB PS3 Slim In Classic White
For some reason, the Japanese think Americans and Europeans don't like colors. You should see the available hardware colors (especially for portables) they've got over there in Japan.
But maybe this one will come here: as revealed by Sony Japan and cited at Joystiq, a very slick 320GB PS3 Slim in what they're calling "Classic White" will hit the Japanese market on October 21 for the price of 34,980 yen (about $410, which is the same cost as the standard black 320GB PS3 Slim). They're also introducing a "white/blue alternating colors" design for the PSP, which "contrasts the red and black God of War PSP" and will go on sale on November 18 for 17,800 yen ($208). You can see some pics of that here. Of course, neither of these colorful systems have been confirmed for North America but sooner or later, SCEA is gonna have to realize that we kinda like colors, too. We got some good color options for the Dual Shock 3 controller this year - which is now available in black, silver, red, and blue - but we'd like more choices for hardware. Of course, white might show off a lot of smudges or something...but it probably won't show dust. Hmm...
Well, we're not interior decorators; we're gamers. Even so, we want such announcements for the color-appreciating crowds here in the US.
