Sony Introduces Translucent ‘500 Million Limited Edition’ PlayStation 4 Pro

More specifically, Sony has sold 523.3 million PlayStation systems worldwide (and counting), and what better way to celebrate than to try selling even more with a very special limited edition PS4 Pro!

The controller is half-translucent dark blue and half-matte, while the Gold Headset 500 Million Limited Edition is finished in the same dark color, with a copper PlayStation logo on both sides. And a few "extra special" units will have serial numbers that commemorate important events in the history of PlayStation.

In the United Kingdom you'll be able to pre-order the limited-edition console, gold headset, and wireless control online from 10am on August 14 at Amazon, Game, Smyths Toys, ShopTo, Currys PC World and Very. According to the company, it will be available on August 24, although pricing hasn't been announced at this time.

It's called the 500 Million Limited Edition PS4 Pro, and the most eye-catching feature is perhaps its translucent blue shell (with bronze trim) and matching DualShock 4 wireless controller. Check with your local retailers to see if they will carry the system.

The swanky special edition console will be limited to just 50,000 units, and will retail for $499.99.

I'm not into the accessories as much, but dang, the copper detailing on the console sure is nice. The 500 Million Limited Edition DualShock 4 will be $64.99 USD/$74.99 CAD/€64, while the Gold Wireless Headset will be $99.99 USD/$119.99 CAD/€89.
