Sony has sold 500 million PlayStations, and here’s our reward.
Sony has announced a stunning new limited edition variant of their PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro in celebration of hitting the milestone of selling more than 500 million copies.
It’s been common practice for manufacturers to come out with limited edition (or as the cool kids call it, “LE”) variants to rack up sales. When Sony does it, however, you can bet your hard-earned dollar it’s going to be an event that you’d be willing to go broke over it. No one I know of sound mind, for example, didn’t lose it when Sony announced an Insomniac Games’ red LE variant tied with their PS4-exclusive title, Spider-Man.
The recently LE variant, dubbed aptly the 500M Limited Edition, is much the same, sporting an irresistibly stunning look that employs a beautifully translucent, copper-on-blue look.
Polygon has also shared photos of the console. Check out the gallery below.

The biggest thing about this variant—literally and figuratively speaking—is its hard drive, which clocks in at 2TB. That’s twice as large as what Sony has chucked in typical PS4 Pro models.
It’s also worth noting that the 500 Million Limited Edition bundle comes with a matching see-through DualShock4 wireless controller (good luck finding a matching pair!), a PlayStation Camera, and a Vertical Stand.
Here’s the full list of specs.
