The PS4 500 Million Limited Edition DualShock 4 controller release date is August 24 and the headset release date is October 11. To put a finer point on it, Sony has sold 525.3 million PlayStation consoles around the world, which is no small task.

Joining the ever-expanding collection of special edition PS4 consoles from Sony is the PS4 Pro 500 Million Limited Edition. Like the console, these two accessories will be a dark, translucent blue with copper accents. According to the PlayStation blog the PS4 Pro 500 Million Limited Edition release date is August 24 with a price of Euro 499 (roughly Rs. 39,730).

The PlayStation brand has been around for nearly 24 years at this point, and in that time, Sony has sold a lot of consoles - more than 500 million, in fact. It's the first PS4 Pro to come with a 2TB hard drive, and Sony is also offering a matching gold wireless headset as an extra for $100. That's more than you get with most of the console bundles that Sony sells, though unfortunately, there isn't a game packed in.

However, if you already own a PS4 Pro and you just want the controller, you're in luck. Each system will also have a copper plate on the front with its limited edition serial number etched on. Select consoles also have important dates etched onto them, such those marking the USA launch of the original PlayStation and the PS4. The limited edition DualShock 4 controller will be available to purchase separately on the same day.

All of the hardware, including the console itself, will go on sale from August 24, with pre-orders starting at most major retailers at 10am Tuesday, August 14.
