So a red PlayStation eh? That's a bit weird. The kind of thing that you would expect to see in Japan, but not in Australia. We Australians like our high end technology black, or possibly white if we're feeling a little fruity. Regardless, it's looking like Sony is about to release a red PlayStation 3 here in Australia.
Sony hasn't officially announced it yet, but a pre-order page has been found on EB's website, with a release date (May 31) and price ($458). This doesn't 100% confirm anything, but it looks extremely likely that the red PS3 will be available soon.
Officially the colour is Scarlet Red, and the SKU looks to be the 320GB PS3.
My PS3 recently suffered the dreaded YLOD, and I've stolen the office console as a result, maybe I might pick up a little red number.
