    I'll admit I'm pretty jealous of those lucky Aussies.I've been contemplating importing one of these from Japan for awhile now. Hopefully Sony considers bringing this to the rest of the world.

    The PS3 slim has a terrible,cheap looking shell, no color can improve it.

    Personally, I've always favored blue or black consoles, even violet at times. The red GBA SP isn't bad though :P

    i think it looks too red to make one sick as emigre said but also it doesnt match a higher end console. small devices may like red but big ones would like the more professional and dull colors like dark blue, black, grey etc.

    I'd rather buy a red 3DS than a purple 3DS :rofl:

    It looks terrible though. Good thing I still have a piano black PS3 phat. Best looking console in Sony's product line IMO.

    I'd say "good to be Aussie", but that looks horrible. All PS3 slims do.

    The silver just really clashes with the red. I really don't like it.

    Generally I prefer my electronics to be a darker or basic color, it's why I kinda liked how Sony stuff just came in black almost constantly outside of a few rarities (such as the special edition PSPs or the white PSP Go).

    That's just my personal preference though, the most "adventurous" I got with colors was a purple GBC and DS.

    Pssh, knowing how "mature" most PS3 gamers feel I think toy is the right way to describe how red makes it look.
