Limited Edition console also comes in even more Limited Edition versions that commemorate key dates in PlayStation history.

To celebrate over 500 million PlayStation console sales (more than 525.3 million consoles have been sold to date), Sony has announced a sleek new Limited Edition PS4 Pro. The '500 Million' console will go on sale from August 24.

The 500 Million Limited Edition PS4 Pro looks pretty nifty, featuring a slick translucent dark blue shell and matching DualShock 4 wireless controller, PlayStation Camera, Vertical Stand and mono headset. As far as limited edition consoles go, this looks pretty sweet.

The bundle will cost $499.99 USD (MSRP) / $639.99 CAD (MSRP).

Each of the '500 Million' consoles will feature a commemorative plate on its front, a serial number etched onto it.

These numbers/dates include 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).

Tom started life on a circus in Australia before his family moved to the UK. His love of gaming started soon after, which essentially meant he bought every video game magazine available and worked numerous part-time jobs as a child in order to afford costly N64 games. He created UK site VideoGamer.com, of which he was the Editor for over a decade. He now doesn't like circuses.
