Sony Computer Entertainment Europe have announced the retail prices of their limited edition PS2 consoles, which are available in a choice of Red, Silver, Blue, White and Yellow.

The limited edition consoles are available from the Sony PlayStation online shop at, and are priced at a hefty 279.99 - some 100 more than a normal PS2, and even their standard console "starter pack" which features any two games and a memory card is less than one of the coloured machines, making them something for real fans only.

As we reported last October, the specially coloured consoles are limited to about 600 of each colour available in Europe, meaning you'll have to order quick if you really want to snap one up - possibly as an investment which will no doubt see them going for at least double the price on somewhere like eBay before too long.
