Silver PS3 Slim Heading to Stores
I have eschewed my matte-eggshell Xbox 360 for a new shiny black one just so I could have to shiny black consoles next to each other, and so I’m gonna say that every console should look pretty much alike and unique colors should be shunned most of the time. If strange colors were a virtue, I’d wear my tie-dye deer t-shirt more often than I do.
So when I see that shiny slim PS3 that’s heading to stores in Japan on March 10 for 29,980 yen, I can’t help but feel the urge to punch it in the face over and over again. It’s a good thing they probably aren’t going to sell these things on my side of the world, then, because a PS3-face-punching rampage would probably not be good for my long-term financial outlook.
That’s just “probably aren’t going to sell these things on my side of the world” for now, because Sony has announced no plans to sell them anywhere but Japan, and they didn’t sell that evil-looking silver fat PS3 in the West either. So don’t hold your breath.
