A red model of the Sony PlayStation 3 will be available on May 4th. Amazon has this week begun taking pre-orders for a Scarlet Red PS3 version which will arrive in the UK on May 4th. The new Red PS3 will cost around £250 with 320GB of storage. This signifies that the scarlet version will cost an additional £40 – £50 to the original black version, but you do get two similarly scarlet DualShock 3 controllers in the box. Simple! Paint it red and call it Scarlet.
