Japan Gets Even More PSP Carnival Colors, Some Have Matching Memory Sticks

By Spencer . January 26, 2009 . 11:02am


Fashion conscious potential PSP buyers take note Sony has four new PSP colors coming out in March. The Radiant Red and Vibrant Blue models, currently available in Asia, will arrive in Japan on March 3rd. Two weeks later on March 15 Bright Yellow and Spirited Green (love that name) PSPs will be in stores. The systems alone go for 19,800 yen ($220), but why stop there? You can also pick up a Carnival Colors bundle with a matching wrist strap, soft pouch, and 4GB Memory Stick Pro Duo for 24,800 yen ($276).


Koei has a bundle of their own for Dynasty Warriors: Strikeforce which includes a Radiant Red PSP, copy of the game, and a silver pouch for 24,890 yen ($277) which comes out on February 26. No word if Sony Computer Entertainment America is going to pick up on the Carnival Color craze, but I wouldn’t count on all of these colors coming here unless a LocoRoco 2 promotion comes out of left field.

    For some reason, they look really tasty.

    Memo to Sony: fewer colors, more games.

    • Just have to add the “Hah!” I uttered when I read your comment. Nice, though I do have 4 PSP titles coming out in Q1 I’m interested in.

  • Those are good colors. I’d buy a green or blue one if I didn’t already own a PSP.

    I like the green one a lot. I assume that these are all PSP-3000s. Seriously, if I was in the market for a second PSP, I would pick that up. Not sure it makes me feel all that “spiritual” though. :)

    I would go for the turquoise too if I don’t alrdy have a black 1000 & white 2000. Rumor has it 4000 would be coming eventually? It’s funny I partially got my 2000 for the ability to hook up to the HD TV, but then the component cable is so short one could hardly sit comfortably on the sofa to play. Crisis Core looked sweet on the big TV though.

    Seriously these color look really attractive if they look as good as the pic.

  • I’d get the green one if I wasn’t afraid that a year from now a PSP2 will be out.

      dont worry the psp hasnt been out for about 2 years so there may be a new one coming out in about 2-3 years but i cat wait that long. it sucked. cuz i got an old dslike 2 months just before the new ones came out.

    Loving the ‘spirited green’ model. Emerald is such a wonderful color. If they come out west, I may pick it up since I have been on the fence of buying a PSP.

  • Josh

    Argh, lately I’ve actually wanted to get into PSP gaming, but until they fix those damn interlacing (and “scan line”) issues, I just can’t spend my money on the thing.
