PlayStation systems have sold over 500 million units worldwide, and Sony is celebrating by releasing a limited edition PlayStation 4 Pro. Also included in the special translucent packaging will be a PlayStation Camera and vertical stand for the console.

However, if you already own a PS4 Pro and you just want the controller, you're in luck. That's more than you get with most of the console bundles that Sony sells, though unfortunately, there isn't a game packed in. There's only going to be 50,000 of these made and each will have a commemorative copper plate on its front, with its limited edition serial number etched into it. Select consoles also have important dates etched onto them, such those marking the USA launch of the original PlayStation and the PS4. The one you buy might even feature the PS4 U.S. release date serial number 01115, or 01013 for the PSVR launch date.

Sony also confirmed it will flog the 500 Million Limited Edition DualShock 4 separately for $64.99, as well as a matching Gold Wireless Headset featuring a translucent design for $99.99. We'll see the console launch at retailers around the U.S. on August 24, while the controller and headset will follow in early September.
