Playstation 3 Goes Scarlet Red In The UK And Australia

Sony Playstation 3 News

A new colour for the Playstation 3 will be released in the United Kingdom. The colour will be Scarlet Red, which is sported on both the console and the Dualshock 3 controller. It will be the Slim 320GB model that will sport the colour. According to a listing on Amazon UK, the console will be available on April 27 and will retail at £249.99 (AU$382.83), which is more expensive than the retail price of regular Playstation 3 units. No games will be bundled with the console.

The United Kingdom is not the only possible area of release as EB Games Australia have a listing for the Scarlet Red console on their website. A point of difference with their listing is that the console will include two Dualshock 3 controllers rather than the one in the UK and a place holder date of May 31. The Australian price is set to be AU$458, a little higher than the AU$399 retail price tag. There has been no mention of the colour on the European Playstation Blog (or any official announcement) or a release date in the United States.

Josh is the name, writing is my game... well my degree will say that. But, when uni gets me down (and it does), there is no better way that to grab a chair, sit back and slicing up some Darkspawn I started my gaming interest back in the good old 16 bit era with the Sega Mega Drive and Sonic The Hedgehog 2. I was roughly five years old. To this day I still try to fire up the dusty companion and speed through the wacky and bright levels, jumping on some Badniks, collecting those damn Chaos Emeralds. Then I moved onto Sony's disk based console the Playstation (thanks to my uncle). Since then I have picked up each of Sony's consoles from the 5th to current generation that has been released in Australia (with more to come). In terms of writing about games, I am quite new to the field. I started out late last year with my own blog before deciding to move to greener pastures. I have written a few reviews for the Playstation 3 and Playstation Portable. Features as well. I hope I can flex my muscles while writing with Capsule Computers. If I'm not gaming, however, I'm writing narratives. I am currently trying to kickstart a high fantasy novel (which, hopefully, turns into a complex RPG) that I want done in five years or so. My passion of writing has been there for a long time and has flourished as I grew. I'm into the fantasy genre, both games and novels, and thoroughly enjoy a deep and complex RPG, whether it comes from the East or West. Oh and anime is awesome!
