Japan to Get White PlayStation 3 and Larger HDDs

Japan always gets a larger selection of consoles in various shades and colors compared to the rest of the world. Like the original PlayStation 3, Japan is getting a PS3 Slim in white – and looks quite classy.

Also totally new, and possibility a sign of what's to come to the rest of the world, is an upgrade of hard drive space. Gone are the 120GB and 250GB models, and in their place are newer 160GB and 320GB alternatives. The classic white PS3 Slim will only come in the 160GB flavor, but the easy-to-replace hard drive design of all PS3 models make it easy for you upgrade yours to any size you wish.

Sony traditionally has kept the color selection of the PlayStation family fairly limited outside Japan, but the bigger drives may make the trip over due to the now-standard 250GB HDD in the newly redesigned Xbox 360 S.

    I still kind of like the original PS3's better. This one does look nicer than the black slim though.

    They can keep it, the matte black is best for electronics.

    Black is more elegant... Matte is better.
