Unboxing The Limited Edition 20th Anniversary PlayStation 4

It was only yesterday that PlayStation unveiled their limited edition “original grey” PS4 to commemorate the 20 year anniversary of the console being out globally. At that moment, a fair majority of us sat at our computers like:

I, myself, was one of the main heavers of rainbow vomit, just simply off of seeing the console on my laptop’s monitor. So imagine my surprise, when nice sized box came floating into our building earlier today– loaded with one these puppies inside:


I about lost it ladies and gentlemen, and it wasn’t just me either. Jessica Chobot was just as enthused, posting super smiley pictures all on instagram and stuff:

Hands off my box, Jessica! We were so excited about it, we just had to share our unboxing with everyone. Check out the full video for yourself above.

As stated in the video, details on how to obtain one of the other 12,299 of these left in the world will be revealed during the PlayStation Experience opening keynote, which is set to go down at 10am PST this Saturday. If you won’t be able to make it physically to the keynote, you can catch the entire thing (as well as other PSX related panels) on twitch right here.

What do you guys think of the 20th anniversary PlayStation 4? Is this something you’d dish out the big bucks to get your hands on? Let us know in the comments below.

    Really I just want the controller! The system itself would just sit in my entertainment center, where only the disc slot and USB ports are visible.

    Very cool. You guys are so lucky. I would love to have one of those. All that old school PS goodness brings back memories. Speaking of I’d say Legend of dragoon is one of my best PS1 memories. That game got me into rpgs.

  3. TJ says:

    Cool video guys. I love the nostalgia wave i just got from that. PS1 memories for me are NBA Live battles, Twisted Metal marathons, Final Fantasy 7 & 8, Tony Hawk’s explosion into gaming, and my favorite PS1 game. Oddworld Abe’s Oddysee.

    Shadow & Ico, PS1 memories? Sweet system though.
