PlayStation 4


 

Sony has reached a massive milestone. Over the course of the past two and a half decades since the PlayStation line came into existence, Sony has now sold over 500 million PlayStation systems. And, to celebrate, its releasing one of the coolest limited edition console designs yet.

Dubbed the 500 Million Limited Edition PS4 Pro, this console sports a translucent dark blue case, making the inner workings of the console ever so slighty visible, and golden lettering. The console comes with a matching DualShock 4 controller, which is similarly translucent on the front, a PlayStation Camera, a vertical stand, and a mono headset. The full bundle of equipment will sell for $499.99, and only 50,000 units will be sold worldwide.

That’s not all, though. Every one of the limited edition consoles will have a commemorative copper plate on the front, showing off its original serial number. A few units will have what Sony calls ‘extra special’ numbers—serial numbers that correspond with important dates in Sony history, such as 09995 (the U.S. launch date of the original PlayStation).

Some of the accessories can be bought separately. The DualShock 4 controller will be sold on its own for $64.99, while a matching 500 Million Limited Edition Gold Wireless Headset will be sold separately for $99.99.

If you’re hoping to snag one of the limited edition consoles for yourself, look for it to appear on retailer websites on August 24th. The standalone accessories will become available in early September.
