To Show Appreciation for the Dedicated and Continued Support of PlayStation® Fans and Business Partners, Sony Computer Entertainment Presents the Limited Edition PS4 that Resembles the Original PlayStation. Only 12,300 Units Will be Available Worldwide.
Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. (SCEI) today announced the “PlayStation®4 (PS4™) 20th Anniversary Edition,” a special edition PS4 commemorating the 20th anniversary of the release of the original PlayStation (PS) on December 3, 1994. The 20thAnniversary Edition will be limited to 12,300 units worldwide, a number that reflects the launch date of the original PS. The limited edition PS4 and included accessories come in “Original Grey” colour, all packaged in a special commemorative box.
The original PlayStation system was praised for its cutting-edge technology, including its ability to process high resolution real-time 3D computer graphics that was never before seen on home consoles, as well as its rich and exciting games portfolio. PlayStation revolutionised the industry and became the first home console in video game history to reach a milestone of over 100 million units in cumulative worldwide shipments*1. As a state-of-the-art computer entertainment system, the original PS delivered breakthrough gaming experiences to users around the world, and that concept has been inherited by every PlayStation platform ever since.
“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.”
“We at SterKinekor are very proud of the partnership that we have had with SCEE over the last 20 years, and being able to bring some of the Anniversary Editions to this market is indicative of SCEE’s continued commitment to maintaining this very much a PlayStation market!” said Mario Dos Santos, CEO, SterKinekor Entertainment.
To celebrate the 20th Anniversary, SterKinekor Entertainment will be running a national competition in search of South Africa’s Ultimate PlayStation fans who will stand the chance of winning 20th Anniversary Edition consoles. Other opportunities for PlayStation fans to get their hands on one of these consoles will be announced in the coming weeks.
SCEI will continue to further expand the PlayStation platform to deliver entertainment experiences that are only possible on PlayStation.
