PS3 Slim Blue and Red Editions Heading to Japan This Month

by Shane McGlaun

The first Sony PS3 was a fat, glossy black fingerprint magnet and it was glorious. When my original PS3 finally died, I ended up buying when the new slimmer PS3’s with a matte black case. If you’ve been itching for a more colorful PS3 that is even thinner – and happen to live in Japan, you will get your wish this month.


A pair of impressively thin and sleek new PS3 consoles are headed to retail outlets in Japan this month in blue or red colors. Each of the consoles has an internal 250 GB hard drive and rather than calling them plain color names, the official colors are “azurite blue” and “garnet red.” Other than the fancy colors and thin profiles, these are still your basic PS3 consoles that have been around for a long time.


Either color PS3 super slim console will cost ¥24,980 – which working out to about $279(USD). The consoles will also ship with their own color matched DualShock controller. There’s no word on a launch for these colors outside of Japan as of yet.

This may be the last hurrah for the PS3, with rumors of a new PS4 console expected to launch later this year.
