Sony celebrates 500 million PlayStations sold with a sweet PS4 Pro

PS4-500-million-05

The console and Dualshock are made with transparent blue casings and copper highlights, and there's a matching PlayStation camera, console stand, and earphones, all packed in a special box which is, naturally, transparent. Sony is celebrating the milestone by releasing a rather lovely, blue PS4 Pro Limited Edition.

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.

Few companies enjoy a limited edition anything more than Sony enjoys a limited edition PlayStation, and the Japanese company is at it again.

"This one's for you", a post over on the PlayStation.blog reads.

If you like the upcoming 500 Million Limited Edition PS4 Pro that was just announced by Sony, you probably want to see more, in every minute detail. Gamers will have to move fast because it will be limited to only 50,000 units worldwide. Theyll go for $500/€500 starting August 24. A 500 Million Limited Edition Gold Wireless Headset featuring the same dark blue transluscent design with copper detailing will also be released for $99.99 Dollars / $119.99 CAD / €89.99 / 12,000 yen. Select consoles also have important dates etched onto them, such those marking the USA launch of the original PlayStation and the PS4. They're both available in "very, very limited quantities", though. The 500 Million Limited Edition Gold Wireless Headset will appear in North America in early September 2018 and in Europe on October 11, 2018.

Have a gander at the new console in the video below. The first is primarily a sizzle reel of all the great games that helped the PlayStation brand surpass half a billion sales.
