Sony to release limited-edition PS4 in celebration of 500 million sales

Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced a rather special edition version of the PlayStation 4 Pro.

PlayStation systems have sold over 500 million units worldwide, and Sony is celebrating by releasing a limited edition PlayStation 4 Pro. Keep an eye out for sales to start in a couple weeks on August 24.

PlayStation signs off saying: "A final thank you, to the players past and present who for the last 24 years have made PlayStation the best place to play". The limited edition DualShock 4 controller will be available to purchase separately on the same day. Sony's also selling a 500 Million Limited Edition Gold Wireless Headset (dark blue translucent design with copper detailing) for $100.

The first ever 2TB PS4 Pro is a special edition console that will only be released in limited numbers later this month.

Sony has sold over 525 million PlayStation consoles since its inception in 1994. The DualShock 4 controller ($64.99) and the Gold Wireless Headset ($99.99) will be available later, sometime in early September from select retailers in the United States and Canada. These links leave Siliconera.
