PlayStation made a huge milestone announcement today. According to Sony Interactive Entertainment, the company has sold more than 525.3 million PlayStation systems. This doesn’t mean just PS4’s, but all the systems throughout the past 24 years.
To celebrate this milestone, Sony is releasing the 500 Million Limited Edition PS4 Pro as a “thank you” to PlayStation fans. This limited edition PS4 Pro will be available, worldwide, on August 24th. However, if you wish to pick one up you’d better hurry, there are only 50,000 units being shipped.

This PS4 Pro has a translucent dark blues shell with a matching controller, PlayStation Camera, vertical stand and mono headset. Additionally, it comes with a stock 2TB hard drive. Each system will have a commemorative copper plate on its front, with its limited edition serial number etched on.
For the lucky few who actually obtain one of these consoles, there are 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). You can see an unboxing below:
The 500 Million Limited Edition’s price is $499.99 USD (MSRP) / $639.99 CAD (MSRP). If you can’t nab one of the consoles, PlayStation is selling the 500 Million Limited Edition controller for $64.99 and the 500 Million Limited Edition Gold Wireless Headset (with the translucent dark blue casing and copper detailing) for $99.
