Sony Announces New Limited Edition Console For Hitting 500 Million Sales Mark 

Sony is celebrating the massive achievement of having sold 500 million PlayStation consoles, and it’s not letting this milestone go unnoticed. 

An extremely limited-edition PlayStation 4 Pro console will be going on sale to march the occasion and they really are something special.

Created as a ”thank you” to the fans and announced via the PlayStation Blog, the console will feature: “a translucent dark blue console shell and matching DualShock 4 wireless controller, PlayStation Camera, Vertical Stand and mono headset.”  

Not cutting any corners for its fans, the PS4 Pro comes with a whopping 2TB hard drive, and each unit will feature a commemorative copper plate on the front, which will have the individual console’s serial number etched into it. 

“Extra special” units will have significant PlayStation-related dates etched into them, with the blog giving examples of: “09995 (U.S. Launch Date of the original PlayStation – September 9th, 1995), 01115 (U.S. launch date of PS4 – November 15, 2013) and 01013 (U.S. launch date of PS VR – October 13, 2016).” 

If you want to nab yourself one of these bad boys (and you’ll essentially be buying a piece of PlayStation history) you’ll have to be pretty damn lucky, as only 50,000 of the units have been made. 

It will be released worldwide on 24th August 2018 and will retail for around $500 USD. 

If you don’t have the cash to spare but still want to be a part of Sony history, you’ll be able to get one of the DualShock4 controllers for around $65 USD, and a gold wireless headset for about $100 – again these will be a limited-edition run so you’ll have to act fast! They’ll both be available in September.
