Titanium Blue PS3 Hitting Japan This Month

While we're all busy debating Kinect and Move, it's easy to forget that for members of a younger generation, this holiday season marks the beginning of their journey into console gaming. And really, what better way to enter the world of PlayStation than with a blue PS3?

What you see here is the titanium blue PS3 that's set to hit Japan on November 25. Part of a Gran Turismo 5 bundle, there's no word on whether or not American gamers will get a chance to purchase one of these colorful consoles. We wouldn't be surprised if, as with many colored versions of popular electronics, it's a limited edition and only available to Japanese customers.

Still, if you find yourself inconsolable and yearning for a blue PS3 to go with your dreams of a white Christmas, you can always hit up Colorware and get them to help you out. It'll only cost you an arm and a leg ($450 for a new, painted console or $149 to paint your existing PS3) but what's money when you can be the only cat in town with a powder-blue PS3?

    That is a lot to ask for just a different color plastic shell.

    I'll stick to my 60GB(upgraded to a 500GB 7200rpm seagate momentus g HDD) Piano Black finish PS3 with bling bling chrome accents. I have to admit though the blue makes the ps3 slim not so "cheap-looking". Unlike the original ps3 slim.

    And GT5 ftw! If I was one of those "I ain't buying a ps3 till GT5 comes out" people(yep they exist); I would definitely pick this up or import it since it's only in japan. If not I would definitely pick up a ps3/gt5 bundle.

    Oh well 11/24/2010 can't come soon enough.
