To celebrate, Sony's releasing the PS4 Pro 500 Million Limited Edition. Sony announced today that their lineup of video game hardware, which began with the original PlayStation back in 1994, has combined for well over 500 million total sales.

You can find a list of retailers who'll be offering the limited edition versions on PS.com, and more details on the PlayStation Blog. Since its inception, Sony has sold a cumulative 500 million PlayStation consoles worldwide, and to commemorate the event, the company is launching a new special edition console for gamers.

Join us as we unbox the 500 Million Limited Edition PS4 Pro, celebrating over 500,000,000 PlayStations sold and countless more adventures conquered.

The units will be serialized with a copper plaque on it, though it's hard to think of 50,000 units as a "limited" run. A few of the copper plates mentioned above will also include unique historical numbers related to PlayStation's history. We'll see the console launch at retailers around the USA on August 24, while the controller and headset will follow in early September. Sony tells gamers to be on the lookout for certain special serial numbers, which include 09995, the United States launch date of the original PlayStation, and 01115, the USA launch date for the PS4.

You can also get your paws on a commemorative Gold Wireless Headset 500 Million Limited Edition separately. The DualShock 4 controller ($64.99) and the Gold Wireless Headset ($99.99) will be available later, sometime in early September from select retailers in the United States and Canada. You can check them both out by clicking below.
