Remember the PS3 Final Fantasy XIII Lightning Edition launched in late 2009? Well, Sony and Square Enix are releasing yet another version of the console centered on the popular role-playing game . But instead of the ceramic-white shade of its predecessor, the new Final Fantasy XIII-2 Lightning Edition will come in black. This revised styling should appeal more to guys, while the pink wording still give this console a feminine touch.

Price-wise, expect to shell out around $500 for the 320GB kit bundled with a copy of the game. The set will be available in Japan on December 15, followed by the U.S. and Europe in early 2012.
