I'm a fan of the semiotics of silly names for colors. What do "ceramic white" and "piano black" say? Classiness?
PSPGo Available Now [Playstation]
“Piano black” certainly doesn’t scream portable.
To me “Ceramic white” says “toilet”.
“I really want a piano, but this psp will suffice”
this thing is fugly
I don’t know anyone who’s getting one. It’s too pricey, especially considering you can get a PSP-3000 for about $80 less and almost all of the same features.
I wish Sony luck, but they should have priced this at $149.99 if they wanted people to get interested in it.
I think that, like a great many consumer electronics color names, ‘ceramic’ white and ‘piano’ black are both basically saying:
“I’m not made of cheap plastic injection molded by the low bidder. Please believe me?”
