PS4 Pro Ultimate Retro Edition looks fantastic

Ever thought the PlayStation 4 Pro could do with a bit more of a nostalgic glow? Then you should probably check out ColorWare’s sumptuously designed PS4 Pro Ultimate Retro Special Edition.

This limited run of consoles recalls the classic aesthetic of the original PlayStation, but there’s more to it than a new splash of color. For starters, the two USB ports feature labels 1 and 2 to mirror the controller ports on Sony’s first home console, while the ‘Sony’ and ‘PS4’ markings are sprinkled in green and blue, respectively, again matching the power and open buttons on the PSOne. 

There’s plenty more to the PS4 Pro Retro edition, so check out the video below to get the full skinny on this ultimate collector’s edition console. 


Sadly, it already looks like the PS4 Pro Ultimate Retro Edition is out of stock. Colorware only made 25 units. Let’s hope there’s more available soon!

PS4 Pro was released last November and is a high-end edition of Sony’s flagship games console, offering a variety of performance enhancements, such as 4K resolution visuals, increased frame rate, and High Dynamic Range (HDR) and other such additions. The system retails for $399.99, which is the same price as the original PS4 when it launched in November 2013.

Sony announced earlier this month that it has shipped over 57 million PS4 consoles worldwide since launch. The recent PS4 update 4.50 added a feature known as PS4 Pro boost mode, which improves the performance of games that have yet to receive a patch for the more powerful system. Those of you who haven’t picked up a PS4 yet should get your skates on; there’s a reduction on major bundles until February 25, featuring the likes of Uncharted 4 and Call of Duty.
