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.

Sony has today announced that 500 million PlayStations have been sold worldwide and to celebrate, they're doing something special. Like the console, these two accessories will be a dark, translucent blue with copper accents. This particular variant, which is created to celebrate PlayStation's achievement of reaching 525.3 million units of hardware worldwide, comes with translucent body. According to the PlayStation blog the PS4 Pro 500 Million Limited Edition release date is August 24 with a price of Euro 499 (roughly Rs. 39,730).

Although it's a normal PS4 Pro in most respects it's the first one ever to come with a 2TB hard drive as standard and has a unique dark blue translucent casing and gold lettering.

Sony said that certain "extra special" units will also pop up for lucky buyers with serial numbers like 09995 (the USA launch date of the first PlayStation) and 01013, representing the October 13, 2016 United States release date of the PS VR.

Pre-orders for the PS4 Pro will be available in Europe on August 14 from retailers including Amazon UK, Game, Smyths, ShopTo, and Very. Another serial number to keep an eye out for is 01013, which is the United States launch date of PSVR. The system also comes a translucent 500 Million Edition DualShock controller.

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. Only 50,000 of them will be sold worldwide, and they will become available on August 24, 2018.
