Japan seems to love new console colours, and it’s set to get another with Sony announcing that it will release the rather lovely looking Satin Silver PlayStation 3 on March 6. The 40GB model will set potential buyers back some Y39,980 ($US376), and will come with one of those much beloved Dual Shock 3 controllers.
The Satin Silver PlayStation 3 will be the second colour variant to have been released in Japan in 2008, with the Devil May Cry 4 bundle containing a PlayStation 3 with a rather sex white trim.
So if you’re in the market for a PlayStation 3 that’s a little different, Japan is the place to be. No announcements have been made as yet regarding the release of alternate PlayStation 3 colours in North America, Europe or Oceania.
