The limited edition PS4 Pro looks absolutely gorgeous from the inside out, with the translucency giving it a unique look. You can also purchase the 500 Million Limited Edition DualShock 4 separately for $65.

The 500 Million Limited Edition PS4 Pro will be limited to 50,000 units, each coming with a controller, headset, camera, and 2 TB hard drive for $500 a pop.

'Superman' star Margot Kidder died from 'self-inflicted drug and alcohol overdose'
Initial reports of Kidder's death in May said that she died in her sleep of natural causes, as The Inquisitr reported. Actress Margot Kidder , best known as Lois Lane in the " Superman " film franchise, passed away in Montana in May.

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. And, for the very lucky few who can get them, we have a few "extra special" hardware units with serial numbers that commemorate important events in the history of PlayStation. 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. The console will be priced at $499.99 United States dollars or $639.99 CAD, and Lempel notes that "these special hardware units will be in very, very, limited quantities", with only 50,000 units planned to be released worldwide. Select consoles also have important dates etched onto them, such those marking the U.S. launch of the original PlayStation and the PS4. The one you buy might even feature the PS4 USA release date serial number 01115, or 01013 for the PSVR launch date.

The Limited Edition 500 Million PS4 pro will be available on retailer websites on August 24, 2018, for $499.99 Dollars / $639.99 CAD, with the DualShock 4 and Gold Wireless Headset becoming available in early September. As with the Gold Wireless Headset, it will be sold in limited quantities in early September 2018.
