To celebrate selling 500 million PlayStation consoles across a variety of devices, Sony has unveiled this very special Limited Edition PS4 Pro. You’ll get a special collector’s box, a translucent blue Dualshock 4, vertical stand, dark blue PS camera and a mono headset. The console itself is stunning. Featuring a translucent blue design with a numbered copper plaque on the front, it’s the ultimate PlayStation console for any fan of the brand. So how can you get your hands on it? Given the fact that it’s limited to 50,000 units worldwide it isn’t going to be easy.
UK gamers have a bit of a head start on their US counterparts. From 10 am on August 14th you can pre-order from:
Update: The UK Pre-orders are now live. Shopto has already sold out, as has Monstershop. Amazon broke the street date and sold out early, which is ridiculously unfair as they included no individual limit. Scalpers paradise. GAME and Smyths seem to be instore only and GAME have impressive levels of stock. My local had 6 available. You can Google their phone number and call ahead! It’s your best bet right now.
It’s unclear if this includes brick and mortar stores or if it’s online only. The Dualshock 4 will be available standalone from the very same outlets on the same date. A Limited Edition variant of the Gold wireless headset will be available from the exact same outlets on 11th October.
US and Canada
The US PlayStation Blog page for the console can be found right here.
There even includes two links, one for the US and one for Canada:
Update: PlayStation are currently being very cagey with information. My suggestion would be to call your local Gamestop and try to get anything you can, whether they’ll get stock, when they’ll know etc. If anyone gets any information on this please get in touch!
Now I don’t actually see a list of retailers on either of these pages despite the PS blog claiming there is. However, that could be because of my location. It could be that the list will be added in time, with pre-orders opening in Europe next week it could be added then. The list might not go live until the 24th. If anyone can provide more information get in touch via @AdamAbysswalker on twitter and I’ll update this. The controller and headset variant will be available in early September.
