For God of War? Are they serious?

This is probably the last PS3 console Sony will release the same was made for the PS2, the God Of War red version was the last PS2 to be made before the PS3 came out. So we might be in for a surprise this year

I read it was called Garnet Red and that it is supposed to be the same color as the war paint on Kratos.

Should be Bloody Red or something like that, not "Cute pink-red"... ¬_¬

Though I can (sort of) see where you're coming from based on the pictures, I really doubt it is dark pink, like you're describing. It comes with the Garnet Red Dualshock 3 controller, which I own and can confirm that it is a deep, true red. The console is described as the same color so I'm thinking your worries are unfounded. The actual product will almost certainly much more crimson than the images.

Any thoughts out there on if I should purchase this with the supposed PS4 coming out soon? I want to play god of war (never owned a playstation) and some demon souls. Guess my question is anyone know if the PS4 will be backwards compatable? Its probably too early to tell right?

It probably will be backwards comptaible like the PS3 was at first, so you might want to be one of the firsts to grab it

Sony already emphatically stated that PS4 will not be backwards compatible.

Feb. 20th official specs and launch date will be announced for PS4.

I am buying this bundle, I already own another PS3 and I know PS4 will likely release around Christmas.

Knowing history and demand for next gen consoles if buying this bundle would make new console out of reach at msrp you are kidding yourself if you believe you will get new console at launch for msrp(that would require exceptional good fortune and luck).

I wish it was black. I have already waited months for another PS3 500GB bundle other than Assasins Creed and unfortunately this is it, so red it is.

I think it's pretty good. "Time to play my ultraviolent macho game!!!" *plops disc in dark pink console and begins playing* It shows some real harmony between what's considered feminine and masculine tastes in society as if hinting they can co-exist peacefully and even merge in the future. I dig it.

I'm buying it too. I am a die hard fan of the God of War series, and red is my favorite color, so no arguments from me. I do wish the games came in their original packaging and not jewel cases, though. From what I hear, the games for the PS4 consoles will have to be registered specifically to the owner or a console. Whether this means we'd be able to play PS4 games on other consoles is beyond me, and seems a little overcomplicated. All I know is I'm ordering this one. If it's the last 500GB PS3 bundle that is released, I will be happy that it's for GoW.

I think it is worth it.. even with the PS4 coming out soon. It will just be another media center in my house to play movies, music, stream, etc....

gamestop does not accept new games for trade. At least not my local one. Online auction sites will, or sell it new here on Amazon, more money than you could get at gamestop for sure.

Amazon charges 15% service fee of the item sold. I sold a new PS3 game for $54 and Amazon charged $11 fee.

Wow that's a horrible looking color from the picture, it looks hot pink. Is this some belated april fools joke? Is this "My Little Pony edition"?

No it's a deep red I got this

It is NOT **pink** but a bright red. If you get this and think it is pink then you really need to have your color vision checked. The description says "Garnet Red" but it is actually two-toned red. The middle part is a darker red while the base that wraps the front and back is a brighter red; the controller matches the color of the middle part.

Yeah, I can confirm it's clearly NOT pink by any measure. I got mine today.
