Red PS3 arrives in UK in two weeks

Previously Japan-only colour gets Western release

The currently Japan-only red PS3 is on a boat headed for UK shores, retailers and Sony have confirmed.


The new colour will arrive in UK shops on April 27, according to retailer listings, who were given clearance to list the new machine yesterday, reports EG. [UPDATE: It's actually out May 4, Sony's told CVG.]

The machine will come with a 320GB HDD inside it and a matching controller for £250 on Amazon. The same package will go for £240 on Play, but you'll have to wait until May 4 for it.

Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter believes Microsoft and Sony are likely to announce Xbox 360 and PS3 price cuts at E3 in June.
