Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) has announce that it is to introduce a “Satin Silver” model of its slim-line PlayStation 2 console. The new model will be available throughout Europe from May 13th, and will sell alongside the current black model at a recommended retail price of €159/£114.99 ($220) - £10 ($19) more than the black version. SCEA has yet to comment on any possible North American release of the console. To accompany the new silver model PlayStation 2, a range of Satin Silver accessories will also be available, including a vertical stand, memory card, DualShock 2 controller and DVD remote control. A silver colored EyeToy camera is already available. David Reeves, President of SCEE said: "When we introduced the new slim line PlayStation 2 in November last year we delighted consumers with its compact size and elegant style, and hundreds of thousands of existing PlayStation 2 owners upgraded to the slim line model. The new silver model takes the elegance and beauty of PlayStation 2 to new heights. With over 30 million PlayStation 2 consoles in households across Europe, the new Satin Silver model will secure the position of PlayStation 2 as the games console of choice for the keen, and now fashionable gamer.” Nintendo has consistently profited from producing special editions and multiple color versions of their hardware but other console manufacturer’s have lent the idea less importance. The enormous effect on sales that the newly colored Nintendo DS console, alonside Nintendogs, has had in Japan, though, is likely to see Nintendo’s rivals approach the concept with rather more enthusiasm in the future.
