PLAYS­TA­TION HAS BE­COME A HUGE PART OF OUR LIVES.

When Sony’s lit­tle grey box broke onto shelves it was a mas­sive suc­cess, but lit­tle did we know just how big a part of gam­ing his­tory it would be­come. Now, many years on, PlayS­ta­tion has be­come a huge part of our lives. Even peo­ple who don’t play loads of games have a PS4 un­der their TV for the odd jaunt to gam­ing nir­vana. Fit­tingly, sales of PlayS­ta­tion hard­ware world­wide have now broached 500 mil­lion, show­ing what a phe­nom­e­non it truly is. To be spe­cific, sales have passed the 525 mil­lion mark.

To cel­e­brate shift­ing all those con­soles, Sony has an­nounced a spe­cial 2TB “PlayS­ta­tion 4 Pro 500 Mil­lion Lim­ited Edi­tion” that’ll be ex­clu­sively pro­duced as part of a run of 50,000 col­lectible units.

With a dark blue, translu­cent de­sign, these unique units will have pride of place in the liv­ing room of any PlayS­ta­tion fan.

“I would like to ex­press my deep­est grat­i­tude for the con­tin­ued sup­port from our fans and busi­ness part­ners,” said John Kodera, SIE’s pres­i­dent and CEO. “With­out our pas­sion­ate community, we would not have been able to sur­pass this re­mark­able mile­stone. [The Lim­ited Edi­tion] has been cre­ated to rep­re­sent our ap­pre­ci­a­tion to our loyal fans.”

On top of the PS4 Pro, the bun­dled DualShock 4 will also be avail­able to pur­chase sep­a­rately, along­side the Gold Wire­less Head­set 500 Mil­lion Lim­ited Edi­tion. There’s plenty on of­fer for any PlayS­ta­tion fan to join in the cel­e­bra­tions. The lim­ited edi­tion con­sole will be priced at £449.99 – don’t miss out!
