playstation-4-20th-anniversary-hk

20 years have passed since the first PlayStation console launched. In 1994 the first PlayStation hit the shelves and was a massive impact in the gaming console business. The original PlayStation console will of course have a solid place in a lot of gamers hearts, even throughout the years, that signature boot up sound still hits us all pretty hard. To celebrate the birthday Sony are launching a limited edition PS4 with the 1994 color scheme. The entire console, including joypad, camera, and cable will also include that PlayStation gray we got with the original PlayStation console. The limited edition console launches today on the exact anniversary of the Japan release (3rd of December 1994). US pre-orders start on December 6th with other regions still in the air.
