Sony Interactive Entertainment today announced not only impressive sales numbers for the PS4, and the PlayStation brand as a whole.
Last month, Sony revealed they had shipped 82.2 million PS4s since launch. It’s an impressive number, but total sales to consumers remained a mystery. Well, today Sony revealed that they have sold 81.2 million PS4s to consumers since launch, putting them within striking distance on PS3’s total sales. Most impressive, however, is that they also revealed that total PlayStation hardware sales have surpassed 525.3 million units worldwide. To celebrate, the company revealed a brand new PS4 Pro bundle.
“I would like to express my deepest gratitude for the continued support from our fans and business partners, who have all contributed to PlayStation’s rich history. Without our passionate community, we would not have been able to surpass this remarkable milestone of 500 million units.” said John Kodera, SIE President and CEO. “PlayStation 4 Pro 500 Million Limited Edition has been created to represent our appreciation to our loyal fans. We will continue to make PlayStation the best place to play for all, as does our continued commitment to expanding our library of great games and variety of network services.”
The PlayStation 4 Pro 500 Million Limited Edition hits store shelves on August 24 for $499.99. The consoles comes equipped with a 2TB HDD and a translucent dark blue design. A similarly design controller comes in the box. The Dualshock 4 and translucent blue Gold Headset are available for separate purchase if you don’t want the console.
If you want the bundle you’ll need to act fast. Sony has only produced 50,000 of these consoles, which means demand is going to be high.
