Sony to launch Aqua PS2 in Europe

Colour us... nah, too easy.

Sony is planning to launch an Aqua (light blue) version of the PlayStation 2 in limited quantities across Europe in early March, priced £139.99, with a matching vertical stand and memory card released to complete the set.

SCEE president and COO David Reeves explained the move. "We introduced our Silver Prestige Line PlayStation 2 before Christmas. It proved to be so successful that it was a natural extension to include one other colour to complement the range, and this new Aqua PlayStation 2 seemed just right for Europe in the springtime." Particularly when it's raining.

The Aqua PS2 (isn't she a beaut?) joins the Satin Silver PS2 and of course the traditional Black shade, but there are other options if these all fail to capture your attention. Last year Sony also launched a range of brightly coloured PS2s - red, yellow and blue being the only colours still in stock - but numbers of these are actually so limited that they cost a whopping £279.99 each from [Sony's PS2 shop], and you can only order one per household.
