While the jury is definitely still out on whether or not the Sony’s new PS3 Slim looks better or worse than the PS3 Phat, we can all agree that it’s time that the PS3 got some colors besides black.
Thanks to the guys over at ColorWare, you can now get your new PS3 Slim dipped in a variety of delightful paint colors. You can mix-and-match a variety of colors for the lid, base, logo and your controllers, including glossy primaries, pastels, and even metallics. And as is always the case with ColorWare, their colors are coated with a double layer of scratch-resistant coating to keep the paint good as new.
Prices start at $149 if you send in your PS3 Slim to ColorWare, or $449 if you want them to just sell you a brand new console, customized to your liking. (There’s a small upcharge for the pearlescent colors, FYI). They’ll even paint one of your Dual Shock controllers as part of the deal, but you’re looking at $30 bucks each for additional controller paint job.
Head on over to ColorWare now to custom configure yours. Be sure to hit that “Brainstorm” button to see what sort of crazy color schemes the machine randomly selects for you. There’s nothing quite like a chocolate brown and lime green gaming console.
