Titanium Blue PS3 'only available in Japan'
A special PlayStation 3 Slim console designed to coincide with the release of Gran Turismo 5 will only be available to consumers in Japan.
Japanese gamers will be able to get their hands on the slimline console, which comes in Titanium Blue, from November 3rd 2010 as part of the Gran Turismo 5 Racing Pack that also includes a limited-edition version of the game.
It is the latest in a number of consoles developed by Sony that are exclusive to Japan - a white PlayStation 3 Slim was also recently announced by the manufacturer.
While the white version of the 160 GB or 320GB gadget is also currently only available in the country, Sony has hinted that this may not be the case in the future.
One spokesperson from SCEE commented to Computers and Video Games that there is a "possibility" the brand will consider launching the white PlayStation 3 Slim in Europe should demand be high enough for the device.
