Sony releases limited edition PS4 to celebrate the launch of the original PlayStation.
20 years ago, Sony released the original grey PlayStation. From that point forward, Sony has been a mainstay in the console gaming business. Be it the record breaking, highly acclaimed PlayStation 2, or the money hemorrhaging PlayStation 3 that eventually turned around, it is not an exaggeration to say that Sony has changed the console landscape drastically. In honour of this milestone, Sony Computer Entertainment has announced the “PlayStation 4 20th Annivesary Edition”, a special PS4 that features the colour scheme of the original PlayStation.
This special edition of the PS4, which was released on the 3rd of December, will be limited to 12,300 units worldwide. It will be available in Malaysia for RM 1,779. Just like from the PS4, the accessories that comes with it will also be sporting the ‘Original Gray’ and will be packaged in a special commemorative box.
For those looking forward to getting their hands on this console, a special arrangement for customers in SE Asia to get this limited console will be announced during the Anime Festival Asia 2014 (AFA) Press Conference which will be held in Singapore at 2.40 pm on the 4th of December.
“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. 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,” said Andrew House, president and Group CEO of Sony Computer Entertainment Inc.
