Sony of Japan on Tuesday announced PS3 greatest hit titles at reduced prices in addition to future availability of a silver PS3.
According to Kotaku, “PlayStation 3 The Best” games will be available in Japan starting March 19. First round titles include Folklore, Resistance, Ninja Gaiden Sigma, Mobile Suit Gundam, and Ridge Racer 7 all retailing for 3,619 yen (US$34).
When asked by GamePro if PS3 Best titles would be coming to the U.S., a SCEA representative replied, “We have introduced a Greatest Hits range of best selling titles for all of our platforms to date, and it is likely that we will do so in the future for PS3. However, no decisions have yet been made on timing or lineup.”
Additionally, Sony of Japan unveiled the Satin Silver PS3 for release on March 6. The new color carries an MSRP of 39,980 yen ($374) and features a 40GB hard drive, but it does not include a DualShock3 controller for rumble support.
“There are no plans for a Silver PS3 in North America at this time,” offered the same representative on Tuesday.
