Why don't we have more limited edition PS3's?

7 replies 190 views Edited Nov 11, 2011

You know what  I mean? Like what Xbox has, a limited edition Gears of War and now a Modern Warfare 3. Why doesn't Sony have anything like a Killzone 3 or Uncharted 3 limited edition consoles?

They do. There are lots of them out there. A quick google search gives 8 different ones in the first two hits.

I'll even do the hard work for you.

They did, I don't think they're releasing anymore specialized consoles since the FFXIII bundle, or at least in North America.

Some of the best ones I can remember are the MGS4 Gunmetal console and the Yakuza console, both older fat models.

AFAIK the only LE console to come out in North America was the MGS4 Gunmetal Gray console, it sold terribly probably because it was overpriced.

I think the real reason that their hasn't been more LE consoles in this country, was that Sony was concentrating on getting the manufacturing costs under control. Now that it finally is, I think it is more probable of it happening in the future...

Also it was a bad deal compared the the 80gb B/C MGS4 bundle priced at $499 which was released at around the same time.

True, also we didn't get a standard silver/white PS3 either .

There are quite a few. There is a white Fianl Fantasy PS3 with a picture of Lightning on the top, a blue GT5 PS3 and a plain white one. The only thing is that they're not sold in North America.

Though they aren't sold in NA, it is relatively easy to import a PS3. Just be ready to pay up for shipping.

That was only in Japan. But we are over due for an LE PS3. WAY over due.

I've been meaning to write something for my signature, but things always seem to... oh look a waffle (>")>#
