Silver PS3 Available for Order

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  |  March 4, 2008

Drooling over the forthcoming satin silver Playstation 3? Thought you had to live in Japan to enjoy its non-thumbprinty matte finish? Well not if reseller Play-Asia has anything to say about it.

Satin Silver PS3

The video game importer is now taking orders for the luscious silver PS3, and the price isn’t much higher than you’d pay for a standard model. The retailer expects to start shipping the new color on March 6th, for $429 USD, a $30 premium over what you’d typically spend for a stock black PS3 here in the states.

Of course, it’s a Japanese PS3, so the default menus are in Japanese (which you should be able to change), and the manual isn’t in English, either. Thankfully, the console does run on standard 110v power, and PS3 games aren’t region-locked, so you should be okay.

So if you’re willing to do a little grey-market importing, check out Play-Asia’s silver PS3 product page. If you’d like to grab a matching Dual Shock 3 controller, they’ve got those too.
