PS4 Pro: Check Out This $500 Limited-Edition PlayStation 4
By Matt Espineli on
A Celebration Of PlayStation's History
Sony recently announced that it has sold over 525.3 million PlayStation consoles worldwide. To celebrate this milestone, the company has unveiled a limited-edition PS4 Pro as a thank you to its fans. Known as the 500 Million Limited Edition PS4 Pro, the dark blue colored console comes with a controller, PlayStation Camera, Vertical Stand, and mono headset; it even comes with a hefty 2TB hard drive. However, the coolest part about the console is that it's translucent and illuminates when turned on, which should be a nice perk for those looking for a PS4 Pro with a little more style and flair than the standard model.
The 500 Million Limited Edition PS4 Pro model is priced at $500 and will be available in North American regions at Best Buy and Target on August 24 (UK and AU region retailers may be different). Only 50,000 units are being made worldwide, so if you're interested in picking one up, you better nab one quickly before they're gone. Of course, a purchase like this is a bit of an investment, so we understand if you're unsure whether or not you want to take the plunge.
Sony sent us a unit and we took a bunch of photos of it for your reference. In the slides ahead you can see the console from numerous angles, as well as a closer look at its translucent shell. We also took shots of the console's accompanying controller and PlayStation camera.
If you're more interested in the 500 Million Limited Edition PS4 Pro's controller, you're in luck. It will also be available as a standalone for $64.99 USD. In addition, a 500 Million Limited Edition-themed Gold Wireless Headset featuring will be available separately at $99.99.
