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).

Sony announced the new 500 Million Limited Edition PS4 Pro on Thursday, a new system with a special translucent blue outer shell meant as a "thank you" to fans for helping the company sell over 525.3 million PlayStation systems worldwide. It is called the 500 Million Limited Edition PlayStation 4 Pro. Only 50,000 will be made, and each one will come with a commemorative copper plate on the front with that console's serial number etched into it. The system also comes a translucent 500 Million Edition DualShock controller. Alongside the PS4 Pro itself, which launches on 24th August, the package will bundle in a custom DualShock 4 controller, a dark blue vertical stand, and a matching PlayStation Camera for those looking to get a head start with PlayStation VR.

The console will be available worldwide at retail starting August 24.

Disney CEO Bob Iger Reveals New Details About Upcoming Streaming Service
A recent report implied that Disney was in talks to reacquire the cable rights for the original trilogy and the prequels. According to the earnings call, the new Disney streaming service will be cheaper than Netflix.


The house of PlayStation just released a press kit with a metric ton of images that will let you do just that, from every possible angle your mind can think of.

Every time a special edition console is released I do wonder who buys them, I can't see the point of them myself. The North American PlayStation Blog says the controller and headset will appear in stores in early September 2018.

The PlayStation brand has sold over 500 million consoles, and Sony is celebrating with perhaps their prettiest PS4 model ever. These links leave Siliconera.
