What is the deal with all of these region-exclusive console colors? I mean it’s really no big deal when the country you call home gets a new color, but it definitely sucks to be left out. It’s an awful feeling, one that I’m experiencing right now having just gotten the news that Australia is getting a lovely red PlayStation 3. A bundle including the classy candy apple red 320GB PS3 and two slick matching controllers will go on sale May 11th for AU $460, which is about $10 more in USD.
Japan got this color last year, so perhaps the crimson PS3 will make it to North America some day. Perhaps.
