Sony Interactive Entertainment is celebrating having sold more than 525.3 million PlayStation systems worldwide with the release of the 500 Million Limited Edition PS4 Pro, available on August 24. The system features a translucent dark blue console shell and matching DualShock 4 wireless controller, PlayStation Camera, Vertical Stand and mono headset. The 500 Million Limited Edition PS4 Pro comes with 2TB hard drive, will be available for $499.99 USD (MSRP) / $639.99 CAD (MSRP), and will be limited to 50,000 units worldwide.
Sony announced that each system will have a commemorative copper plate on its front, with its limited edition serial number etched on. And, for the very lucky few who can get them, there are a few ‘extra special’ hardware units with serial numbers that commemorate important events in the history of PlayStation. Keep your eyes peeled for these ‘extra special’ serial numbers 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).
The 500 Million Limited Edition DualShock 4 will also be available as a standalone for $64.99 USD (MSRP) / $74.99 CAD (MSRP). What’s more, a 500 Million Limited Edition Gold Wireless Headset featuring the same dark blue translucent design with copper detailing, will be available separately at $99.99 USD (MSRP) / $119.99 CAD (MSRP).
The limited edition DS4 and Gold Wireless Headset will be available in select retailers across the U.S. and Canada in early September.
