The 500 Million Limited Edition DualShock 4 will be $64.99 USD/$74.99 CAD/€64, while the Gold Wireless Headset will be $99.99 USD/$119.99 CAD/€89. To thank the gamers and everyone who purchased these systems, Sony has announced a very special PlayStation 4: the 500 Million Limited Edition PS4 Pro, which will be available on August 24, 2018.

In the 24 years since the original PlayStation released in 1994, PlayStation systems have sold 525.3 million units worldwide. Not only that, but it adds a 2TB hard drive, PlayStation Camera, and Vertical Stand. That's more than you get with most of the console bundles that Sony sells, though unfortunately, there isn't a game packed in.

When turned on, the blue light on the front of the console will illuminate the system's innards, while a copper plate will commemorate the manufacturing number of the 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).

However, if you already own a PS4 Pro and you just want the controller, you're in luck. The one you buy might even feature the PS4 United States release date serial number 01115, or 01013 for the PSVR launch date.

The controller will also be available separately, alongside a "Gold Wireless Headset 500 Million Limited Edition".

If you're going to pick one up, be prepared to plop down $499.99 - it's not exactly cheap, but it's also worth keeping in mind that Sony is only making 50,000 of these. Find a list of retailers / websites participating in the sale of the console here: United States, Canada, Europe.
