  • A Limited Edition 2TB PS4 Pro Is Being Released To Celebrate 500 Million PlayStations Sold

Sony Interactive Entertainment has introduced yet another special variant of its PlayStation 4 Pro but this particular model is rather different from any other limited edition release that the company has produced before.

Help Sony celebrate selling over 500 million PlayStation consoles by buying another one! The now household name is celebrating the milestone of 500 million consoles sold worldwide with the release of a gorgeous new PlayStation Pro. The console will be on sale from August 24 and will cost $500. In addition, a 500 Million Limited Edition DualShock 4 and a 500 Million Limited Edition Gold Wireless Headset will also be available. Alongside the PS4 Pro itself, which launches on 24th August, the package will bundle in a custom DualShock 4 controller, a dark blue vertical stand, and a matching PlayStation Camera for those looking to get a head start with PlayStation VR. The console will also come with a 2TB hard drive for the first time.


Each system will have a commemorative copper plate on its front with its limited edition serial number etched on. Check with your local retailers to see if they will carry the system. The limited edition DualShock 4 controller will be available to purchase separately on the same day.

In the 24 years since the original PlayStation released in 1994, PlayStation systems have sold 525.3 million units worldwide. The 500 Million Limited Edition Gold Wireless Headset will appear in North America in early September 2018 and in Europe on October 11, 2018. These links leave Siliconera.
