Yes, for those of you who don’t like the dull black of the PS3 that you’ll find in stores everywhere, there is now confirmation from many online retailers that Sony is expected to release the new finish this month for American buyers, with the rest of the world following suit later on.

The red version will go on sale this quarter for approximately £249 (approximately R3100). While there has been no word on what our local packaging will include, Amazon’s box set from Sony contains the console decked out in matte red, with two matching controllers and a 320GB hard drive as standard. UK customers should get the console in the beginning of May and that means we’ll be up for it around a month or so after that.

And I have to add: it looks sexy!
