PlayStation 3 Super Slim Blue and Red Models Confirmed for Japan

Posted on January 21, 2013 AT 02:20am

Sony has announced that two new PlayStation 3 Super Slim models–Azurite Blue and Garnet Red–will be releasing in Japan soon.

These new models will be available in “limited quantities” from February 28, priced at 24,980 yen. Each color features a 250GB hard drive and a red or blue Dualshock controller.

There’s been no word on a release outside of Japan for either at the moment. I doubt that a different color is going to convince players to upgrade their older models at this point in the console’s life cycle–only a serious power boost is going to do that.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
