A Limited Edition 2TB PS4 Pro Is Being Released To Celebrate 500 Million PlayStations Sold

PlayStation Celebrates 500 Million Console Sales With Limited Edition PS4 Pro

Sony is celebrating the milestone of 500 million PlayStation Systems sold with a 500 Million Limited Edition PS4 Pro. It's more than just a bog-standard PS4 Pro, though.

All of the hardware, including the console itself, will go on sale from August 24, with pre-orders starting at most major retailers at 10am Tuesday, August 14.

The system, which will be limited to 50,000 units, features a slick coloring job with the dark blue exterior, matching DualShock 4 controller, a vertical stand, PlayStation Camera, and mono headset.

Every time a special edition console is released I do wonder who buys them, I can't see the point of them myself.

When turned on, the blue light on the front of the console will illuminate the system's innards, while a copper plate will commemorate the manufacturing number of the console. It will be $499.99 USD/$639.99 CAD/€499.

The 500 Million Limited Edition PS4 Pro will cost $499.99 United States dollars and $639.99 CAD with the production restricted to 50,000 units worldwide.

I'm not into the accessories as much, but dang, the copper detailing on the console sure is nice. What makes it special is the translucent dark blue casing with matching DualShock 4 wireless controller.

The original PlayStation console first launched in 1994 and since then Sony has sold a staggering 525.3 million consoles, including the PlayStations 2 to 4 and the PSP and PS Vita portables.

The limited edition DualShock and Gold Wireless Headset will be available in select quantities at North American retail in September.
