Having trouble convincing your girlfriend of the merits of PlayStation 2 games? Sony may have just come to your rescue, by announcing that a pink edition of the all-conquering console will go on sale on 8 November.

Generously, the luridly coloured machine will come as standard with two pink controllers and a pink 8Mb memory card. Alas, it won't come bundled with the obvious game to accompany such a feminine machine: SingStar Anthems, although the two would go together like Gilbert and George.

Dan Hill, PlayStation 2 European brand manager, said: "The Pink PlayStation 2 is funky, fresh and fashionable." That would definitely be true if you're a teenage girl. We are prepared to admit that you can't miss it -- have a look at the photos and see what you think.
