Sony has launched a new Walkman W in Japan carrying the name NWD-W253. The newbie is technically similar to the regular models and will be available in trendy hues including white, black, green, and pink. The new NWD-W253 has two things going for it: first, it’s waterproof (IPX5), which means you can use the “Wearable Walkman” in the rain or even “wash” it under water.
And second, Sony will roll out a special Metal Gear Solid – Peace Walker version. The NWD-W253 will comes with 4GB of internal memory, a USB mini port, and compatibility with ATRAC/MP3/WMA/AAC and Linear PCM (WAV) formats.
What makes it special is the Snake version comes pre-installed with six songs from the game’s official soundtrack. Sony plans to start selling the NWD-W253 in Japan starting May 22 (price: $110). The MGS model is limited, costs $20 more and is (probably) Japan-only
