When it comes to consumer electronics, plain black seems to become de rigeur for the last couple of decades. That’s certainly true of the PlayStation line up, but there’s the occasional variation, and Sony are adding a second colour of slim PlayStation 4 alongside “Jet Black” in the form of “Glacier White” at the end of this month.
Coming with a white DualShock 4 in tow, it will be available with 500GB in Europe from January 24th or with 500GB and 1TB in Japan from January 23rd, with the usual pricing that starts at £259/€299/¥29,980. Alas, North America and the PlayStation 4 Pro are both being left out of the party.
I must say, the new variant does actually go quite nicely alongside the PlayStation VR.
Curiously, the press release finished by stating that “SIE will continue to further enhance the entire PlayStation ecosystem by offering users the choice of a variety of hardware models,” which I’m really hoping goes beyond a white PS4 Pro and includes more unusual colours of plastic. Vermillion, anyone? Perhaps a nice pastel orange?
