A new member

Sony has been making PlayStation systems since 1994. Since then, the company has continued its success. The company recently crossed over 500 million consoles sold with its lineage of the PS2, PS3, and PSP contributing to the overall amount. An article by The Verge points out that it is "523.5 million, to be exact."

The new limited edition PS4 Pro will be in a blue color with a bronze symbol in the middle of the system.

The limited edition console will be coming with a PlayStation Camera, as confirmed in the article. The PS4 Pro will come with a hefty price tag at $499.99. Gamers will notice that it is $100 more than the original PS4 Pro, but this one does come with a camera, a vertical stand, and a better-looking system, along with a 2TB storage drive.

An article by Polygon states: "Only 50,000 will be produced." Gamers will have to act fast to get the limited edition console. Polygon also notes that when the console is turned on, the insides of the system can be seen, which is very cool and different.
