Sony Computer Entertainment will release a “PlayStation 4 20th Anniversary Edition” special model worldwide, the publisher announced during this year’s PlayStation Awards ceremony.
The special-make model is “Original Gray” in color and will be limited to 12,300 models (reflecting the original PlayStation’s December 3 release date). It will cost $499 / €499 / 49,980 yen. In Japan, it will be sold via lottery exclusively at the Sony Store. In North America, details on how to pre-order the console will be announced during the opening keynote at PlayStation Experience this Saturday. In Europe, more information on how to pre-order is promised soon.
“The ‘PlayStation 4 20th Anniversary Edition’ is a very special model that is reminiscent of the original PlayStation, which has inspired every other PlayStation platform launched in the past two decades,” Sony Computer Entertainment president and Group CEO Andrew House said. “This limited edition PS4 offers a great sense of nostalgia to long-time PlayStation fans, while also providing a fresh experience to those who never picked up the original console.
“The ‘PlayStation 4 20th Anniversary Edition’ embodies our appreciation and gratitude to all our fans, publishers, and business partners that have provided us with tremendous support for the past 20 years, and we look forward to their support as we continue to imagine and build the future of PlayStation together for years to come. We remain steadfast in our commitment to deliver the best gaming experiences and to offer the best place to play for gamers around the world.”
Additionally, PlayStation 20th Anniversary themes are now available for download across PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PS Vita.
