Two Of The Ugliest PS3s I've Ever Seen

Hello tacky! Sony is readying two PS3 super slim specials (one for Yakuza 5 and the other for Ken's Rage). Both are shockingly unattractive.

Why are they so ugly? Well, for starters, Sony has always been really good about releasing cool looking PS3 special editions. However, with the new hardware, the ribbed face makes decoration tricky. So Sony now has to work around a big chunk of the console and can literally decorate only around the edges. The result just looks odd.

If you are interested in these consoles (and honestly, I have no idea why you would be), the Ken's Rage Legend Edition PS3 will be out December 20 for ¥33,170, while the Yakuza 5 Emblem Edition console will be out December 6 for ¥37,800. Both consoles have a 250GB HDD, come with a copy of each respective game, and each get special controllers. (Though, that Ken's Rage controller, looks like it's covered in bird crap!)

Chalk up the price difference to the Yakuza 5 console getting a beach towel and a special 8GB USB memory with special content. The Ken's Rage console comes with a smartphone pouch and a download code for an in-game costume.

If you want a new, redesigned PS3, spring for the vanilla version. It looks better without the decorations.

    I'm not a fan of the new PS3 designs at all, but as far as they go... I really like that gold one : /

      I think the Gold controller is nice. Looks like Dues Ex Human Revolution PS3 promotion or something.

    The first controller looks like Goldust and the second one looks like what a controller would look like after Goldust has finished with it o_O

    Suck it haters that yakuza PS3 is ballin' :p

    I want one with a faux-wood finish, Atari 2600 style.

    That second controller looks like my car after a few hours at the beach - Damn seagulls!

    That 2nd controller looks like a birds pooped on it :/

    I don't see what the big deal is, other than the bird poo controller.

    As a sometimes fan of Japanese heraldry, I do like the first one. :)

    WTF is wrong with you, it looks pretty good. Get Some glasses mate. Sure as hell look better then the Xbox Slim,
    Xbox 360 came out as white then released the slim as a black only console. Plus the Xbox slim looks like a rectangle hour glass.
    And who cares what it looks like. We barely even look at our consoles. Thats why its xn entertainment system, there are better things to do then sit around all day and look at a console.
