New PS2 is pretty in pink

Sony has unveiled a funky pink PS2. The new limited edition pink PS2 console will ship complete with two pink DualShock Analog controllers and a pink 8MB memory card, and in the UK will be available with a karaoke party game. Selling for the recommended retail price of GBP129.99 (159.99 Euro), the pink PS2 will be launching throughout the UK and Europe on November 1st, just in time for when folks are beginning to think about Christmas shopping.

"PlayStation 2 is the accessible, affordable way to enjoy new social, communal and interactive entertainment experiences, through software titles like SingStar, Buzz and EyeToy," said Dan Hill, PlayStation 2 European Brand Manager. "The Pink PlayStation 2 is funky, fresh, and fashionable, and will further broaden the console's continuing popularity and relevance with a fun new twist."
The move is possibly influenced by rival manufacturer Nintendo, who launched a pink DS which has proved to be a success. The idea is no doubt to capture more of the female market later this Christmas.

I prefer my charcoal color slim PS2. Obviously, that pink PS2 is only for girls.

No, the bonus UMD is not for the PS2, it's for a pink PSP package (+ collaboration with the artist Pink for publicity, etc.) that has also been announced today.
