It seems like only yesterday that PlayStation was the new kid on the block, bringing with it exciting new titles like Crash Bandicoot, Twisted Metal, and Wipeout. However, as the years went on PlayStation secured its place as a juggernaut of the gaming world. The now household name is celebrating the milestone of 500 million consoles sold worldwide with the release of a gorgeous new PlayStation Pro.

The 500 Million Limited Edition PS4 Pro sports a gorgeous translucent shell giving it a cool blue tint. The front of the device is decorated with a commemorative copper plate and PS4 logo. The plate displays the machine’s individual serial number, along with the number of units created. It also comes with a limited edition DualShock 4 and PS4 camera, both of which share the console’s soothing blue color scheme.

The console will come with a massive 2 TB hard disk drive, and it will cost $499.99 USD or $639.99 CAD in North America and €499 in Europe.

The DualShock 4 will also be sold on its own for $64.99 USD/$74.99 CAD/€64, and the Limited Edition Gold Wireless Headset with the same blue theme will be available separately for $99.99 USD/$119.99 CAD/€89.

To top it off, the 500 Million Limited Edition PS4 Pro packs a whopping 2 terabyte hard drive and 4K capabilites allowing players to take advantage of visually stunning PlayStation exclusives like God of War and Marvel’s Spider-Man. There is also a gold-plated wireless headset available separately. This will also be sold in limited numbers.

The 500 Million Limited Edition PS4 Pro will be available to purchase on August 24, but will only see a very limited number of units (50,000) created.
