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.
