04 Dec 14

Sony Computer Entertainment has announced today a special new model for the PS4 console that celebrates the PlayStation brand's 20th anniversary.

The original PlayStation released back in Japan on December 3, 1994. The iconic grey colour of the original console will always be remembered by fans.

Ever since the PS2 came out, every PlayStation console have been coloured black. To hark back to the '90s, Sony is releasing a special edition PS4 model that is the same grey color as the original PSOne.

This PS4 is being named the "20th Anniversary Edition" and also comes with a grey coloured DUALSHOCK 4 controller and PlayStation Camera. All devices come inside a special commemorative box.

"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. “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."

The 20th Anniversary Edition PS4 is sure to be a collector's item in the future as Sony is only producing 12,300 units of these worldwide.
