New Limited Edition PS4 Pro Console Celebrates 500+ Million Systems Sold

New Limited Edition PS4 Pro Console Celebrates 500+ Million Systems Sold

(A mono headset is included, as always.) It has a translucent blue shell, with blue power light which lets you see inside, and a commemorative copper plate on the front of the system.

It's gorgeous to look at and will ship with a matching DualShock 4 controller as well as a stand, headset and a PlayStation Camera although that particular accessory isn't made of anything resembling blue plastic. Now, 24 years and four generations of hardware later, Sony is celebrating selling 500 million consoles.

More interestingly, there will be "extra special" units that commemorate significant dates in PlayStation history, including "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)".

The PS4 Pro 500 Million Limited Edition will not move the sale numbers much, only 50,000 units will be available world wide. The only sad part is that collectors will probably keep a lot of these units in their boxes, and they're too pretty not to play.

"As translucent colors are always a fan-favorite, this is a great opportunity to bring this color to the PlayStation 4 Pro system as a "thank you" to our fans", Lempel said. The DUALSHOCK4 as well as a Limited Edition 500 Million Gold Headset will also be sold separately (release timing and availability will vary by country and region).
