Sony have announced that they are to celebrate the fact that their PlayStation 2 machine has sold over 20 million units, with the launch of limited edition coloured consoles.

Five colours will be available, White, Super Red, Light Yellow, Astral Blue and Metallic Silver - Each territory (Japan, USA, and Europe) will receive 600 of the coloured machines, plus a bonus 66 complete units which are expected to retail at a higher price and will no doubt be snapped up by PS2 fans in a flash.

No European prices or dates have been announced yet, but if Sony's clever they'll hopefully have them in the UK for the Christmas rush - The Japanese units go on sale from November 8th at the Official Japanese PlayStation website.
