PlayStation Celebrating 500 Million Units With Limited Edition PS4 Pro
That's a lot of units.
Here’s an incredible figure for you: since 1994, Sony and PlayStation have sold 525.3 million consoles worldwide, which is a staggering amount of units. Hats off to the team, they’ve been killing it for nearly 25 years, and they’re looking to celebrate in style.
To commemorate the milestone, PlayStation will be releasing a new limited edition PS4 Pro with a translucent blue casing, which is the best colour. You heard me. The console package will also come with a matching Dualshock 4 wireless controller, a vertical stand, headset and PlayStation Camera. Oh, and it also includes a 2TB hard drive for, you know, games.
