Sony Celebrates Half a Billion Consoles Sold with Limited Edition PS4

Nichole VegaAug 10, 2018

You'll also be able to get the 500 Million Limited Edition DualShock 4 controller by itself for $65, a much cheaper way to celebrate. In this age of massive digital games, having 2TB of storage at your disposal is a attractive thing - it's just a shame we don't see this storage option more often. It has revealed that more than 525.3 million PlayStation consoles have been sold worldwide in the span of just 24 years.

Alongside a transparent vertical stand, the package also includes a PlayStation Camera which doesn't feature a translucent chassis but still draped in similar dark blue colorway. Normally a distinctly boring black, this limited edition model is made of a translucent blue plastic which will no doubt immediately make people think of Nintendo's ill-fated Nintendo 64.

You can find a list of retailers who'll be offering the limited edition versions on PS.com, and more details on the PlayStation Blog.

"As translucent colors are always a fan-favorite, this is a great opportunity to bring this color to the PlayStation 4 Pro system as a "thank you" to our fans". Since its inception, Sony has sold a cumulative 500 million PlayStation consoles worldwide, and to commemorate the event, the company is launching a new special edition console for gamers. Look out for serial numbers like 09995, which refers to the USA launch date of the original PlayStation on September 9, 1995. Another serial number to keep an eye out for is 01013, which is the United States launch date of PSVR.

The limited edition DualShock and Gold Wireless Headset will be available in select quantities at North American retail in September.
