From the land of the rising sun (via CVG) (http://www.computerandvideogames.com/article.php?id=184971) comes word that Sony Japan is readying another (aesthtic) revision of the PS3 to coincide with the release of Metal Gear Solid 4 - this time it's 'steel'.

Japan's special edition Metal Gear Solid 4 bundle will come packed with a PS3 in a nice new skin, when it launches in June.

The new grey-ish coloured "Steel" PS3, so dubbed by Famitsu magazine, bundled with MGS4 will go for 51,800 Yen (which converts as 263.70 - far cheaper than it would actually be if released here).
Snake? Snaaaaaaaaaaake!

Will it be as ugly as the Halo 3 Xbox?

Or aluminum, for portability.

Would be nice if they finally released one of these non-Black colors outside of Japan... Maybe, say, in the U.S.?

When I'm working in my room at night I turn on the PS3 for warmth.

Wow, they sure are putting a lot of eggs in the MGS4 basket. There is no way it can live up to all the hype.

All companies are guilty of this.

Besides, the hype for MGS4 is nowhere near that of Halo 3. Hopefully no game ever hits that level of absofuckinglutely ridiculous hype ever again. Game Fuel my ass. :p

"Steel" PS3? How is this going to look different from the silver one? Or, wait...

I think the MGS4 marketing blitz will be a lot more subdued. I've enjoyed the games in the series, but I don't think they have an audience, at least in North America, as wide as something like Halo has ended up having. Its just a little more of a niche game style. A lot of the hype has really been within the gaming community, as MGS4 is being seen as one of the key games in Sony's push to steal market share from the 360. MGS3 had reasonable expectations placed on it because it was a sequel coming out on the dominant console. It just had to be a good game, nothing more. "When MGS4 comes out..." has been bandied about so often by the press and the community that it's raised everyone's expectation level for the game.
