Hands-on with the deluxe PS4 Pro 500 Million Limited Edition | Eurogamer

As a piece of hardware designed for the core gamer and die-hard fan, it's been a little surprising how little Sony has leveraged PlayStation 4 Pro in terms of ultra-desirable, collector-centric special release consoles - a situation it aims to put right with the imminent release of the 500 Million Limited Edition.

As beautiful as it is, it attracts all the ugliest surrounding it including dust, finger prints and scuff markings/light scratches.

Stuff and scratches? Did you put yours on the floor or something?

The glossy part gets hairline scratches easily.

It prob wont be long before a third party releases clear shells for the PS4 like they have done with systems in the past. I have a blue one for the original xbox and it looks cool af!

Have you got one? Thought its not released til the 24th in the uk.

I watched a detailed unboxing video from Digital foundry, they show clearly show what will happen upon handling the console. They weren't trying to hide it or anything as it's also expected.

It's a great looking piece of hardware, I'm truly looking forward to receiving mine ^_^

That DF video is a travesty, first they downplay the price saying you can get X fir same money. Then they bark more than once about scratches and fingerprints, when anyone with half a brain won't A, be using it as a day to day console, B, and if you were, you wouldn't take the protective film off. Personally mine is staying boxed.

And he says it has a nice bronze accent on the front, that's the limited edition number plate numb skull.

I can't stand Richard, sounds like Elmer fud, looks like Elmer fud, but he ain't hunting rabbits.

jimbost79114d ago

Yea i seen that video. I got mine preordered. Mine will be staying boxed and sealed too.

IMO they actually downplayed the X in showing what a fantastic console you could have instead.
Just my opinion, don't come at me warring flak people haha

Its not like your supposed to cuddle it and fiddle with all the time. DF seemed clear enough IMO. Its fantastic as a deluxe LE console.

xX-oldboy-Xx114d ago

OB1Biker : you're allowed your opinion mate, I didn't take it that way.

I just think they missed how significant this release is. It's a MILESTONE for a company that entered a 2 horse race with no experience and changed gaming forever.

The ONLY thing mentioned in the video should have been PS4 and Sony. It's a celebratory release, it should be celebrated.

I have a strong dislike for DF and Richard. DF don't have integrity and he is just annoying.

OB1Biker114d ago

Yea you got a point there and in that there's more than the hard ware here. It's a very symbolic edition that is worth more that a standard factory machine. They definitely should have emphasized it more than just a hardware piece.

That will definitely collect fingerprints if a person uses it for anything other than a collectors item, but it looks really nice though.

I want that controller.

OMG, OMG... Why did I watch this, I want one so bad now... Looks so badass I love it... As far as Finger prints and dust that's really not that serious, you can just do this --problem solved--

Or just buy a hydrophobic spray from amazon-- done --

I mean how often are you touching your PS4 Pro, and that spray will solve all your issues, I hardly ever... turn it on with controller, and off with controller, have it standing up beside my Monitor.. hardly ever has dust and when it does, it's a simple vacuum, once or twice every 3 months max...

Guys seriously this looks amazing.. Love the Controller.... too --Looks Awesome-- 2TB is the perfect hard-drive size have one in my PS4 Pro, could not be happier... They did an Awesome job on this one...

Dam just looks a lot better in the video then I thought it was going to look...

xX-oldboy-Xx114d ago

The controller is up for preorder now in Aus, should be up soon everywhere else.
