Pink PSP

Sony has teamed up with pop artist P!nk to released a new PSP for you to foist upon you enemies and burnout their retinas. Okay, maybe not but it’s pretty damn close. The pink PSP is set to release on October 27 in Europe only and will cost €229 and £169 for the value pack and “core” pack respectively. Those who pick up this limited edition PSP will also gain access to exclusive P!nk content via Sony’s YourPSP.com service.

So why did Sony release this abomination? Well, here’s what the PSP senior manager had to say:

Our collaboration with P!nk will reflect the shared values between the artist, PlayStation and all the young women with freedom, confidence and attitude. The exclusive and exciting P!nk content made available in this Limited Edition will let young women discover the entertainment potential of PSP beyond gaming. PSP is not exclusively for men, there is a PSP for everyone, and whoever you are, PSP can fit into your life.

    Why did they do this?! They could’ve at least left the buttons and analogue stick a decent colour. It just looks horrible, they’ll be lucky if ANY sell.

    This is so awesome! When are they coming out with one in our country? I really need to know?!?!?!?!?!

    I have a black PSP, and was considering a pink Nintendo DS lite just coz it’s cute, but seeing this, I know now not to bother w ds and get the pink psp instead.

    For all those who dont know….there are women who are fasinated by technology, i bought a PS2 when it first came out, i have my very own x-box and am more or less up to date with the latest games and gadgets (growing up with 3 older boys i guess it comes natural) and i have every intention of buying the latest PINK PSP!!!!!

    It’s not that we think it shouldn’t be done just because we don’t think girls play games or whatever. It’s just that it’s such a bright, sickly pink! I don’t think even the girliest girl, deep down likes the colour.

    I know a lot of girls with game systems… I myself own both a black PSP and a white PSP. I am undoubtedly going to purchase this one! I wish they would come out with more colors in everything!

  13. 13 Ninja

    Pink? So wat. Jus cause we’re girls doesn’t mean we want one in pink cause its “such a girly color.” If they really wanted to appeal to females they’d make them in plenty of colors! Cause everyone knows… girls like a choice. NOT JUST PINK!

  14. 14 VAplata

  42. 42 Tiffany K

    Y’know, there are a LOT of girl gamers out there, and pink has ben shown to be a pretty popular color. I myself have a black PSP (got the warrantee plan at BestBuy) with mising pixels. Now, I’m tempted to wait for the release of the pink one in the US before exchanging mine! :D They could have left the analogue stick silver though…

  43. 43 lisa

  58. 58 Janice

    Im a girl and i have a psp!

  59. 59 P.queenz

    I really like the new idea for psp because i anm getting one for christmas and i love the colour pink, whats a girl got to ask for!

  60. 60 Jean

    To be honest I really question why some gamers are getting defensive over colours.
    I’m a girl & I just bought the Pink PSP mainly because it was handy that it came out in pink this year whereas when I tried to buy the black one last year they were all sold out, regardless of colour actually. If this was not released this year in pink it wouldn’t have bothered me at all about what colour I got.
    I didn’t immediately start gushing about the pink version & not know anything about the console I was getting. I’m quite an experienced gamer but I’m also girly, it doesn’t limit me to getting pink things though. I’m sure a lot of girls would agree that it’s just a bonus that they released this colour but it’s not everything.

  61. 61 Sara

    Hey I really think this is awesome. I’ve been wanting a PSP for awhile now and just
    earlier today I thought, “Hey, that would be so cool if they had pink ones.” Since they have pink Nintendo DS Lites and pink Gameboy Advacnce SPs. And I was looking online to find different prices and came across the pink PSP, I wasn’t even looking for pink because I thought they only came out in one color, I didn’t even know about the white. But I love video games, I have a blue Nintendo DS, I wanted the Pearl Pink they had last year but they didn’t have any so they got me the blue one. And I have the original Gameboy Advance SP and a teal Gameboy Color (from back in the day). And all you people complaining about this pink PSP, get over it! If you don’t like it, don’t buy it. Why should you care if other people get it?

  62. 62 Hat

    hiya, i’m kinda a girly-girl nd i actually don’t like this color of bright…too sickly pink. I prefer the pink of the nintendo DS which i have. This pink is actually kinda tacky. I know the psp has been out for a while but i got the DS instead and now i wish i hadn’t so i’m getting a psp for xmas but white, NOT PINK! XP no offense to you people that love the pink, it just sorta hurts my eyes…
