Sony Launching Blue PSP-3000 In Japan

I've always said that Sony shoots itself in the foot when it comes to their next generation consoles. When you release a new console, you don't continue to manufacture and sell your last-gen stuff. It drove me insane how Sony would lament the poor sales of the PS3 in one breath, and then in the next, talk about their PS2 sales and which games for the PS2 will release soon.

And they're at it again! The Vita has not been selling well in Japan, and instead of trying to fix the problem, they've decided to make it worse by creating a new two-tone blue PSP-3000 for Japan only. The Sky Blue/Marine Blue PSP will launch on April 26th in a bundle pack that includes a 2GB Memory Stick Pro Duo, a pouch, and cleaning cloth.

Yeah, that will make Japanese consumers consider getting a Vita.
