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 500 Million console also comes with a 2TB hard drive, but you might have a fight on your hands to get one, as only 50,000 units will be released worldwide. 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. For the lucky few there are a bunch of even more exclusive systems, with some units coming with serial numbers that signify key dates in PlayStation history (hello, eBay!). 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).
If you fail to buy one of the 50,000 consoles, or already own a PS4 Pro and don't want to fork out the cash, perhaps you'll be tempted by standalone '500 Million' peripherals. The '500 Million' DualShock 4 will be available for $64.99 USD (MSRP) / $74.99 CAD (MSRP). A '500 Million' Gold Wireless Headset with dark blue translucent design and copper detailing will be available for$99.99 USD (MSRP) / $119.99 CAD (MSRP).
