Sony has decided to make a pink PlayStation 2 because it is considered “funky, fresh, and fashionable”. It’s also very, very pink and will come bundled with SingStar Pop on its release on 8 November. The 'Pink PlayStation 2 Value Pack' will retail at £129.99. In addition to SingStar Pop, you also get two pink DUALSHOCK controllers and a pink 8MB memory card.

Sure is different... And you think, the money that went in to do this could have been done for something far better. If they did this color for Girls, surely Black is your basic color and appeals to Girls & Boys?

obviously they were trying to get more girly-girls to buy.(or stereotypical gays:clueless:) I don't see how this will help sales, especially with the next gens coming up. Waste-o-time. Black is best.

Games consoles in general are targeted more towards males, so I don't see them getting massive profits from this.

Dispite years of men questioning their sexuality because of the color pink, theres nothing wrong with it, I'm quite fond of the Salmon color of pink, while Neon pink does nothing for me, if someone who has yet to buy a PS2 and just so happens to buy one because of it's new pink color, it's win win for Sony, the cost of changing the color of plastic is near ZERO.

Dude. I'd buy that Playstation. >.> That's hott. ... not for my college dorm, though. I'm saving my money for a guitar and maybe a NES, Genesis, or Dreamcast.
