I'd pick up a special edition PSP if it came here to the States and I had the cash.

Yeah not very interesting box-art right here. 
 
Kindof a cool bundle, but those sorts of things never ever come here.  
 
And shouldn't they be pushing the Go harder? Jesus... it came out of nowhere to disappear back in nowhereland.

I like the box art. I like the yellow. What exactly is it that you guys find repulsing about it?

I really like the dog tags, and the rest of the extra's.  But the PSP itself is very ugly, not a fan of the camo design. 

But it's still kind of cool, I do wish they'd release more custom branded PSP like this outside of Japan.  My Dissidia one simply came with a couple of transfers you could stick to the thing that quickly rubbed off.  They were pretty cool little designs though, if they were actually branded onto the PSP and not transfers it would have looked very nice.

Looks pretty darn sweet, I'd buy that if it were a PSP Go. The dog tags are nice, I like the texture on PSP, pretty much everything, Japan is lucky.

I like yellow box art also, some of the best games ever made have had yellow box art, including Super Mario Bros 3, Super Mario World and Super Mario Land.  
 
Not forgetting Persona 4:

Konami have announced today the game will be delayed in Japan, it will now release on April 29th. It's unknown whether this will effect the release dates of the game in the US an Europe. (May 27th)

I don't hate that box art. But the camo PSP looks like arse.

Having only attempted one MGS game and hating it, having it on a console I find difficult to like is not a good combination.  The camouflage console looks terrible to my eyes, but the boxart looks fine.

Not intot he camo PSP, but everything else seems pretty nice. 
Then again, any psp other than the original black, or the white, looks wrong to me.
