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

A Limited Edition 2TB PS4 Pro Is Being Released To Celebrate 500 Million PlayStations Sold

Generally looking like any other PS4 Pro, what makes this particular one stand out so much is the case in which it sits.

Although it's a normal PS4 Pro in most respects it's the first one ever to come with a 2TB hard drive as standard and has a unique dark blue translucent casing and gold lettering. The limited console is a translucent blue color with sleek copper accents that brings to mind the streak of translucent consoles, controllers, and handhelds that graced the '90s and early '00s.

In 1994, the PlayStation made its debut in Japan and, as of today, Sony Interactive Entertainment has officially sold over 500 million PlayStation family systems total.

Classic mode , which made its debut way back in the very first Super Smash Bros game for N64, will be returning in Ultimate . You can choose to stack all of the echo fighters or have them display separately on the character select screen.

PlayStation has cleared the 500-million-systems-sold mark and then some: Sony's worldwide console sales are sitting at just over 525 million.

"In addition, each system will have a commemorative copper plate on its front, with its limited edition serial number etched on".

The house of PlayStation just released a press kit with a metric ton of images that will let you do just that, from every possible angle your mind can think of.

Facebook asks US banks for financial info to boost user engagement
In a statement to the Journal , a Facebook spokesperson said it will not use the new financial data for advertisements. The idea is that messaging with a bank can be better than waiting on hold over the phone - and it's completely opt-in.

Customers will be able to buy the new limited edition PS4 Pro on August 24, starting at $499.99. To celebrate, Sony's releasing the PS4 Pro 500 Million Limited Edition. That's no mean feat by anyone's measure and to celebrate the achievement the company is selling a special edition PS4 Pro, and it's absolutely gorgeous. Gamers will have to move fast because it will be limited to only 50,000 units worldwide. Look out for serial numbers like 09995, which refers to the United States launch date of the original PlayStation on September 9, 1995.
