Here’s a snippet taken from the official press release highlighting the significance of this milestone. “Since the launch of the original PlayStation in Japan on December 3, 1994, PS platforms have evolved, embracing new technologies and thriving in a fast paced and competitive market. Succeeded by PlayStation 2, PSP (PlayStation Portable), PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita, and PS4, the platforms have consistently provided a variety of innovative entertainment to the world.

“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
