How Come North American PS4s Can't Look A Lot Prettier?
See this? It's the Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain Diamond Dogs Special Edition PlayStation 4.
Pretty slick, huh? Yeah, well, it'll very likely never see the light of day outside of Japan. And it just bugs the crap out of me.
Someone needs to explain to me how and why such editions never manage to reach North America. And even if we can't get these Japanese editions, what's the problem with releasing a bunch of different colors? Why can't there be like ten different colors? I understand the difficulty with special editions featuring a particular game; you have to team up with the publisher of the title and so forth. But even so, I bet we could see a lot more if Sony just tried.
We've got a bunch of different available colors for the DualShock4 now. How's about the hardware? If I can have a red or blue controller, why on God's green earth can't I have a matching console? I'm not saying I'd buy a new console just because it looked different than my boring ol' black one, but it'd be nice for new consumers. We seem to be permanently stuck with black or white (and the latter is often rare).
Japan gets all the pretty stuff. Damnit. :(
