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
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?
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.
Ima buy this 2 I own a Xbox 360 all new games 2 but I want to try ps3 I play b4 I love Xbox 360 just tryna this I luv red so that factors in alot wood I be able to take these games to game stop and get credit since they be brand new sealed I play how b4 not my type of game it's good graphics r good but I'm more of a halo battlefield 3 type of guy if u could answer this question thank u looks like the games are like a $100 value wonder if some stop wood give me that in credit let me know
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.
