The Sony PlayStation is an all-time best selling console and has recently touched the 500 million units mark for all versions released till date. To commemorate this milestone, Sony had announced earlier this month that it will be making a limited edition PlayStation 4 Pro console that features a translucent deep-blue chassis with a 2 TB hard drive, a matching translucent DualShock 4 Wireless Controller, a vertical stand, a mono headset, and a PS Camera. Dubbed the 500 Million Limited Edition, only 50,000 of these consoles will ever be made and they are ready to be ordered tonight. 

GameStop has announced that it will be making a 'very little allotment' of the Limited Edition PlayStation 4 Pro bundle available for online ordering starting Thursday night at 12.01 AM CDT (1.01 AM EDT) for US$499.99. Those wishing to purchase just the translucent controller can do so for US$64.99 but will have to wait till September. A limited edition headset (not the one included in the bundle) will also be made available during that time for US$99.99.

A number will be engraved in copper on the front beneath the USB ports indicating the position of your console in the limited edition lineup. A few special serial numbers exist to commemorate important milestones in PlayStation history such as 09995 (US launch of the PS on September 9, 1995), 01115 (US launch of the PS4 on November 15, 2013) and 01013 (US launch of the PS VR on October 13, 2016).

Other retailers such as Target and Best Buy have also put up listings for the 500 Million Limited Edition PS4 Pro bundle but it is not known as of this writing when they will be made available and exactly how many units they have in stock. Best Buy has also listed the new limited edition DualShock 4 Wireless Controller as 'Coming Soon'. 

Given the beautiful looks of the 500 Million Limited Edition consoles, they are bound to disappear as soon as the ordering page goes live. Therefore, if you're looking to grab one of these, better get online in time and keep all the payment information keyed in so that you can checkout at the earliest.

Though a cell and molecular biologist by training, I have been drawn towards computers from a very young age ever since I got my first PC in 1998. My passion for technology grew quite exponentially with the times, and it has been an incredible experience from being a much solicited source for tech advice and troubleshooting among family and friends to joining Notebookcheck in 2017 as a professional tech journalist. Now, I am a Lead Editor at Notebookcheck covering news and reviews encompassing a wide gamut of the technology landscape for Indian and global audiences. When I am not hunting for the next big story or taking complex measurements for reviews, you can find me unwinding to a nice read, listening to some soulful music, or trying out a new game.
