As of today, Sony Interactive Entertainment has officially sold more than 525.3 million PlayStation systems worldwide. In 24 years of sales, fans and gamers have seen the famous console undergo a variety of iterations, with the PS4 Pro being but the latest in that long line. Now, as a way to celebrate that milestone, Sony is unveiling a Limited Edition PlayStation 4 Pro system as “thank you” to their fans. It’s an expensive “thank you” to be sure, coming in at just under $500, but there are only 50,000 available worldwide so collectors out there should be more than happy to accommodate.
The 500 Million Limited Edition PS4 Pro, featuring a translucent dark blue console shell and matching DualShock 4 wireless controller, PlayStation Camera, Vertical Stand and mono headset, also comes with a massive 2TB hard drive. Additionally, each system will have a commemorative copper plate on its front, with its limited edition serial number etched on. Some lucky folks will nab one of a few “extra special” hardware units with serial numbers that commemorate important events in the history of PlayStation, like 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).
