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

While the 500 Million Limited Edition DualShock 4 does come with the system, it can also be purchased as a standalone item for $64.99.

On top of the console itself, we also get to see the special matching DualShock 4, the earbud, the sleek see-through stand, the PlayStation camera, and the lovely box that will include them all. 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. That's over half a billion systems sold since the first PlayStation home entertainment system was released all those years ago. The first and second PlayStation consoles make up almost half of this total, selling 102.49 million units and 155 million units, respectively. 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. Now, as a way to celebrate that milestone, Sony is unveiling a Limited Edition PlayStation 4 Pro system as "thank you" to their fans.

The units will be serialized with a copper plaque on it, though it's hard to think of 50,000 units as a "limited" run.
