Konami has konfirmed that the gunmetal grey PlayStation 3, already available in Japan, is set to go on sale in North America as a "very, very limited edition".
It's being launched to coincide with the release of Metal Gear Solid 4, according to the US PlayStation blog, and will come bundled with a copy of the game.
Alternatively American consumers will be able to purchase a bundle that includes the black 80GB model, which was discontinued in the US for a while.
In the UK, Sony will be offering a British-themed console shaped like a big red bus draped in a Union Jack with Big Ben sticking out one of the USB ports and the Queen as a bus conductor taking money off Solid Snake who is dressed as Lord Kitchener. Or possibly Lucan. This is of course a lie and Sony has yet to respond to requests for comment.
Metal Gear Solid 4 is out on June 12th. You can find lots of writing and pictures about it over on the gamepage.
