Sony Announces New Pink PS3 Controller
If you weren’t already faced with enough colour choices when it came to buying an extraPlaystation 3 Dualshock controller, Sony has decided to give you one more colour to choose from…
Sony is claiming that this new colour choice is perfect for girl gamers (because y’know, pink defines us as women) and for kids (I can only guess they mean young girls.) After all, no self respecting male would be caught dead with a pink controller.
Of course, I am being completely sarcastic. However, after surfing a few websites it appears that most males (on average) have this outlook on the new colour choice, some even going as far to say that the controller colour “seems unnecessary” and others think there aren’t enough girl gamers out there to make this colour choice “necessary.”
Playstation already offers red, blue, silver, and white PS3 controllers, alongside their regular black controllers. One has to wonder if anyone had issues with previous colours and why pink appears to be such a big deal to some (after all, no one is being forced into buying one.) Xbox 360 has had a pink controller on the market for a few years now, and is often hard to find in stores which I can only imagine is because it often sells out.
The controller is street dated for September 21st, so I suppose only time will tell how well sales go on the new girly controller. Will you be buying one?
