There is no word on if these "extra special" units will include anything more than the standard pack-ins of the 500 Million Limited Edition PS4 Pro. This particular variant, which is created to celebrate PlayStation's achievement of reaching 525.3 million units of hardware worldwide, comes with translucent body. What makes it special is the translucent dark blue casing with matching DualShock 4 wireless controller. Normally a distinctly boring black, this limited edition model is made of a translucent blue plastic which will no doubt immediately make people think of Nintendo's ill-fated Nintendo 64.

Sony has never been bashful when it comes to sales numbers for its PlayStation 4 consoles. Additionally, each system will have a commemorative copper plate on its front, with its limited edition serial number etched on. The European PlayStation Blog mentions there will be opportunities in win one in that region, but does not offer additional details.

"As translucent colors are always a fan-favorite, this is a great opportunity to bring this color to the PlayStation 4 Pro system as a "thank you" to our fans".

Sony Interactive Entertainment has announced a new Limited Edition PS4 Pro to celebrate an incredible milestone for the company and the PlayStation brand. It goes on sale from 24 August 2018.

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. Sony tells gamers to be on the lookout for certain special serial numbers, which include 09995, the USA launch date of the original PlayStation, and 01115, the U.S. launch date for the PS4.

Have a gander at the new console in the video below.
