Share

To put a finer point on it, Sony has sold 525.3 million PlayStation consoles around the world, which is no small task.

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! Sony is celebrating the milestone by releasing a rather lovely, blue PS4 Pro Limited Edition.

To continue the celebration, Sony will additionally be launching a 500 Million Limited Edition Gold Wireless Headset for $99.99 United States dollars / $119.99 CAD, that will feature "the same dark blue translucent design with copper detailing".

Perseids 2018: Where and how to watch the dazzling meteor shower
The 2018 Orionid meteor shower will be visible from October 2 to November 7 and is expected to peak on the night of Oct. 21-22. The August shower gets its name from the constellation Perseus because the meteors appear to originate there.

Those of you lucky enough to snap one up will also receive a commemorative copper plate, featuring a limited edition serial number.

For starters, the 500 Million Limited Edition features a translucent design in a catching dark blue paint job with matching DualShock 4 controller.

On top of the translucent blue design and its matching accessories, you're also getting a 2TB hard drive with this console. Examples include 09995 (Sept. 9th, 1995, US PlayStation launch), 01115 (Nov. 15, 2013, US PS4 launch) and 01013 (Oct. 13, 2016, US PS VR launch).
