At the Taipei Game Show, Sony draped the curtains on a limited edition PlayStation 2 set to arrive in stores on February 4 in Asia. The new color, Akai Takara Kurenai, or (loosely) Crimson Red Treasure comes out just in time for Lunar New Year. While it superficially feels like the PlayStation 2’s days are numbered since the PlayStation 3 is on the market, Sony’s most popular console keeps chugging along.
Speaking of the PlayStation 3, Echochrome has a spring 2008 target in Asia. That’s no where near as solid as the March 19 release date for Japan, but Echochrome is starting to blob around the world. Perhaps, Sony will announce a solid NA release date at Game Developer’s Conference.
