Sony adds colors to PSP
Sony Japan will release the PlayStation Portable gaming system in four carnival-themed colors, adding to the currently available black, white and silver editions of the system. The red, blue, green and yellow PSPs will be offered as standalone, with the console itself, an AC adapter and a 1,200mAh battery pack, or in a value pack, which adds a 4GB Memory Stick, a 2,200mAh battery and a color-matching carrying case.
The newly colored PSP-3000 models will cost the equivalent of $221 when it launches in Japan. The value pack will be priced at $277. Blue and red PSPs will be available in Japan on March 5th, while the green and yellow systems will follow on March 19th. There is no indication of when or even if the PSP in these new colors will come to North America. [via Impress]
