Another special feature is that every console will have a commemorative copper plate on its front, etched with a limited edition serial number commemorating important events in PlayStation history.

The console and Dualshock are made with transparent blue casings and copper highlights, and there's a matching PlayStation camera, console stand, and earphones, all packed in a special box which is, naturally, transparent. Now, 24 years and four generations of hardware later, Sony is celebrating selling 500 million consoles. Some will have "extra special" serial numbers like 09995 (U.S. Launch Date of the original PlayStation: September 9th, 1995), 01115 (U.S. launch date of PS4: November 15, 2013) and 01013 (U.S. launch date of PS VR: October 13, 2016). To celebrate this huge milestone Sony is rolling out the 500 Million Limited Edition PS4 Pro as a "thank you" to fans all around the world. It will sell for $500 / £450.

The console will be available worldwide at retail starting August 24. It also sports a 2 TB hard drive for a substantial amount of storage space. You can check for details on which retailers will have units.
