I like the white, but not this iteration. I wish I could get a white phatty.
Also, does the silver stand come with the package? I've seen it in the promotional pictures but there's no mention of it in the package contents (that I could find).Epson Home Cinema 1080 UB, Panasonic TH-P50Z700 1080P plasma, Dali Ikon 6 fronts, Dali Ikon Vokal 2 center, 4 Dali Ikon on-walls, Velodyne DLS-4000R sub, Onkyo TX-SR705, LG BH200 (x2), 40 GB PS3

I bought a white controller years ago to go with my MGS4 PS3 Phat, and I also have little love for this latest revision. This is the best version I have seen of it though.
There is a screen at 45 seconds into the video where it is stated
"PS Vita System Sold Separately
Stand Sold Separately"
A matching stand would have been a nice inclusion.

Great business move on Sony's part. Good way to move some stock before the PS4 comes out.

Red VS Blue: Red and Blue PS3s Detailed for Japan
250GB Super Slim Versions to release on February 28th.
Just as it seemed that North America would be blessed with the latest color variant for PlayStation hardware with the limited edition white bundle, Sony announced that Japan will get not one but two new colors in "limited qualities."
The red variant is referred to as 'Garnet Red,' while blue is labeled as 'Asurite Blue.'
500GB European versions have been spotted on Amazon.de, but nothing yet for US.

I picked up a new PS3 super slim on Black Friday, I like it. Feels a little cheaper, but I can turn off the power by holding the power button. The top loader is ok, cause you can open it when the system is off. My old fatty was pretty loud as well.

My fat died a while back and I replaced it with the new slim. It's louder than my fat was when I got that new, but not as loud as my fat was at the end of its days. Overall I think it's fine. Not as sweet as the last version of the PS2 though.Newly converted PC elitist jerk.

Woah!!!! I want the Blue PS3 considering they said it's Azure, oh man.
edit: Oh and am I the only one thinking Sony is buttering up people so much with how PS+ has so many PS3 games available because the next PS will definitely not be BC?
Frankly I'd prefer they continue with the CELL but really get out there and help developers for the next console gen. Just because you're use to x86 architecture doesn't mean that another way may yield a tremendous amount more computing power. Granted it may be more difficult to program for.HD DVD, the best in extras!
My HD DVD list: "Clerks 2", "The World's Fastest Indian", "The Thing", "V For Vendetta", "Enter the Dragon" and "Casablanca".
My Blu-ray list: "Warriors Of Heaven and Earth", "Curse Of the Golden Flower", "Kung Fu Hustle", Weeds Season 2, "Rent", "Tekkonkinkreet",
"Lives Of Others", "Black Book", "Hairspray", "Kingdom Of Heaven: Director's Cut", Sanctuary S1, "Chungking Express", "Videodrome", "Contact", "Paprika".
