IMO, at $299 it is still to expensive for Sony to experiment like that.


Maybe when it hits $150 and they have enough of a target demographic. Even at $300, in this economy, it is a tough sell.

What is the target demographic? Or am I responding to a troll?

Just add food coloring to it and it can be any color you want.

Their demographic now is people who can dump $300 on a game console. There's probably 10x as many people who can dump $150 on one, and that is the time to experiment with colors (as the cost of failure is significantly lower).


Retailer space is limited, and the PS3 isn't really all that great a seller. Even 2 SKUs is too many.

From the press release: Product code: CECH-2000 (Charcoal Black)


That sure makes it look like other colors are coming in the future. None of the other older press releases I googled mentioned the color.

I understood what he was saying. I can walk into ANY Best Buy, Game Stop, Target, Walmart, etc and the PS3 always has the SMALLEST area devoted to games, systems, & peripherals out of the big three. Also, it is still the most expensive console of the three.


Until there is either:


A) a signifigant price reduction (PS3 is still the most expensive according to MSRP)


B) a big enough exclusive software release


the PS3 will not fly off the shelf fast enough to warrant any additional colors that may otherwise just sit around. Who in their right mind is going to pay $300 for a hot pink PS3 because that is all that is left on the shelf? Not I. At a lower price point I might consider it but not for a $300 investment.

He didn't say anything about those stores - or any stores for that matter. Nor did he say anything about shelf space or exclusive software - or exclusive games.


Saying that a target demographic of a $300 PS3 is people that can "dump" $300 on a game console is hardly a demographic. Not much to go on there.


Do you think a company that hires an outside advertising company to target advertisements will merely say I have a $300 product, so please target your ads to people that can dump $300 on a product? Wouldn't the ad company need more than that? Even if it was to develop the info itself?


At what price point would you buy a pink PS3 slim?
