    Special Edition Consoles

    Had this thought while posting about different console colors.

    Why doesn't Sony put out special edition consoles like Microsoft does with the Xbox? They have had special editions for exclusives (Gears of War and Halo being the first 2 that pop out) as well as for multi-platform games. Not sure if anyone knows why this is or if this had been answered before. Just think it would be something cool to get if there is one special game that plays into your heart.

    I know that if they would come out with a limited edition God of War console, I would have it in a heartbeat.

    because sony hates money


    seriously the moment microsoft made the r2d2 xbox with blue lights and working sounds and everything i bought that shit. there was nothing that could prevent me from buying it.





    seriously though, sony does make special edition consoles. they just don't make them for the US/Europe.


    Japan has all sorts of special edition ps3's. all america and europe got was a vomit brown mgs4 console. woo.



    Here's some japanese PS3's so you can get mad at sony for pretending america and europe markets don't exist









    they already made a special edition for that piece of shit model too

    All those regular slim editions looks so good! *drools* Ni no kuni and FF. <3 I would totally buy any of those if we had them here in EU, but unfortunately we don't and won't get them ever.
    I only don't like the super slim special edition.

    Me too hahahahaha

    But seriously, I really don't understand why they release them only for Japan, knowing there is a market here in the US as well. Or at least to make them available in some form. But it's whatever. Guess that's why they make skins and stuff.

    It is the principle behind the fact that we shouldn't have to do that. I'm noy saying that we need a special edition console or controller for a game but it would be cool to see Sony do it for hose of us outside the Japanese market. I just don't understand why it hasn't happened.

    As far as the custom controllers section, I got one each for my wife and I. Pretty neat. Not game based though. Will upload them as soon as I figure out where to go to upload pics. I am a noob in technological aspects.
