    Hope that will make it over here. I loved the transparent colors the PSX and PS2 had.

    • ShinStar

      I have every transparent color from the PS2 days! I just wish they made an orange and purple one to match the PSX/PS2 memory cards (they had an orange PSX memory card but not purple sadly.)

  • Mr_SP

    Why don’t they sell these when there is an actual desire for more PS3 controllers? I’ve got three black ones… this couldn’t have been out back then, maybe?

  • AuraGuyChris

    If it doesn’t glimmer, it ain’t crystal!

  • doubleO7

    Niiiiice. The world needs more transparent gaming peripherals.

  • Crystal huh?

    So they just took a fresh controller and didn’t paint it?

    … Sorry, I know I sound pessimistic.

  • Sakurazaki

    A good number you guys from the Game Boy Color/N64 days feel all my wants.

  • Twilleppac

    Guess it’s still the 90s in Japan, haha.

    Japan always gets the best stuff.
