Welcome to Player Attack!
Who said all electronic gadgets had to be black, white or chrome? After years of being almost exclusively in the dark, shiny camp, Sony has burst out with a bright pop of colour, announcing the Scarlet Red PlayStation 3 for Australian audiences.
Of course, it's a limited edition - this sort of fresh look won't be around long - and will only be sold from select stores.
Under the candy-coloured exterior, you'll find a 320GB PS3, and the whole package ships with not one but two Dualshock 3 controllers in "a colour that will match the console" - that is, bright shocking red.
No date has been given just yet, but if you're in the market for a new console - or just a new-look one, this Scarlet Red PlayStation 3 could fit the bill. Also, no word on whether or not the matching "Splash Blue" console will be arriving Down Under - both colours were revealed last year at Tokyo Game Show and have been released in other territories over the past six months.
I like video games, fishing, Depeche Mode, long walks on the beach, writing discussion papers and cups of tea. Not necessarily in that order.
