Sony Computer Entertainment Japan today enhanced the color palette of the monolithic PlayStation 3 with two new colors.
Splash Blue and Scarlet Red 320GB PS3 Slim models (CECH-3000B) are destined to arrive in Japan on November 17. There is nothing fundamentally different about the consoles other than aesthetics, but they sure do look keen. No word about availability worldwide, but it is very likely these will be available elsewhere in the future. Specially colored Dualshock 3 controllers are also included with the package, as well as AV, USB, and power cables.
When these colorful consoles arrive in Japan, they will cost 29,980 yen ($390). While the U.S. price may seem high, it is worth noting this is a mere currency conversion, which is never accurate for predicting prices in other regions.
Our friends at Crave UK also point out that a white PS3 Slim will arrive in Europe and Australia on November 1. This color has been available in Japan for more than a year now, so you can see that availability varies from region to region and takes a long time to spread out to other areas.
