Twenty years ago today, Sony released the PlayStation for the first time. Now, the company has decided to celebrate the 20th anniversary of its original console with a special, limited edition PlayStation 4. This PS4 is gray to resemble the PlayStation, and it has a special 20th Anniversary label on it. Check it out with this unboxing video.
Like what you see? If so, tune in to PlayStation Experience, which will be streamed on Saturday, December 6 at 10 AM PT/1 PM ET. Pre-order details for the United States and Canada will be revealed there. Only 12,300 20th Anniversary PS4 consoles will be released worldwide, so you’ll have to act fast to secure your order.
If you’d rather remember the days of the original PlayStation without buying a limited edition console, PlayStation Europe announced special 20th Anniversary themes for the PS4, PS3, and PS Vita. The North American release of these themes is expected to follow.

Of particular interest to fans is the theme that gives the console the startup sound used by the original PlayStation. In case you’ve forgotten that iconic sound, here it is on a player’s PS4.
