PS3 Getting Blue, Red Controllers


While Japan has a few different PS3 colours to choose from, Americans are stuck with…black. Oh, and a silver controller. But only until October, because in October, there’ll be two new controller shades to choose from.

Those shades are “Deep Red” and “Metallic Blue”, both of which you’ve seen before as PSP colours.

Afrika Is Finally Coming To American PS3s

Sony Computer Entertainment and Rhino Studios’ safari and photography sim Afrika is finally coming to North America, publisher Natsume has announced, giving PlayStation 3 owners a chance to experience the gorgeous game on Western shores.

According to IGN, Natsume has picked up publishing duties where National Geographic Games and Sony Computer Entertainment America appear to have left off. That doesn’t mean the two companies won’t be involved, however as both National Geographic and Sony are licensees for the title.

Still no date for the title, but we’ll hope for one at E3.


SasaharaX: About time this came Stateside.
