Sony CEO and SIE President John Kodera said in a press release:
“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.
The PlayStation4 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 to expanding our library of great games and variety of network services.”
Notably, Sony’s previous financial report stated the PS4 had shipped 82.2 million units at the end of last month. The 81.2 million sold to consumers confirms the number of actual units sold wasn’t far behind.
