Two new PlayStation 3 colours announced for Australia

PlayStation 3 consoles to be available in "Azurite Blue" and "Garnet Red" for a limited time.

Sony Entertainment Australia has revealed two new colour schemes for the PlayStation 3 console. The 500GB model of the console will be released in colours "Azurite Blue" and "Garnet Red" for a limited time.

Fans who wish to pick up the new PS3 can expect a RRP of A$399.95 when it is released on February 21 this year, a day after Sony makes an announcement which the Wall Street Journal has reported as the official unveiling of the PlayStation 4.

Earlier this month, Sony released a 45-second teaser video suggesting the company will make a significant announcement on February 20 at 6 p.m. EDT. The "PlayStation Meeting" will be taking place in New York, according to an invite sent to GameSpot by Sony. The teaser video does not share any concrete information as to what may be divulged at the event.

So late to the party...why did they even bother, are they trying to copy 3DS with different colours?..hoping it will sell more.

Might as well just buy an older model, because odds are games will come with it, unlike this overpriced absurdity.

I'd like different colour PS4s at launch.

Still got my black launch PS3, now wishing it was a different colour.
