Sony and Microsoft both have created some incredible limited-edition consoles over time, though it seems like Team Green goes just a wee bit harder when it comes to sharing those "WOW" designs. That being said, Sony takes a more artful approach, and that can definitely be seen in their latest reveal. The reactions were pretty interesting, so instead of the usual news coverage, we're hitting internet reactions to Sony's limited-edition The Last of Us Part II PlayStation 4 Pro console reveal.
Sony took to Twitter to reveal the new console, a matching headset, and the controller. The design is much more subtle than one would expect from a zombie game, but it's stunning nonetheless. Plus, doing the unexpected is not always a bad thing, it's nice to see a more grown-up design for someone looking for a new special way to honor the games they are most excited for.
The reactions were varied. Some seemed to not like the simplicity while others were 100% hyped. And then there were just the straight-up hilarious reactions:
Who the hell is gonna buy a brand new PS4 when backwards compatible PS5 is about to release in a matter of months?— JJ (@Xtr473rr357ri41) May 19, 2020
God of War and Spider-Man were the best looking ones.— Michael ⚡⚡ (@bigmike102477) May 19, 2020

I like how simple it looks. Not everything has to be extremely detailed or convoluted— Arden St. Ives 🦠 (@ArdenStIves) May 19, 2020
There were quite a few other hilarious posts as well, but replies were quickly being hidden. That being said, the limited-edition The Last of Us Part II PS4 Pro will be launching alongside the game's release on June 19th, just a few short months away from the anticipated PlayStation 5 launch.
The newest console features a matte aesthetic with a delicately engraved design with Ellie's tattoo and it comes with a similarly styled DualShock 4 controller. There is also a limited edition headset as well with a similar design, though that is purchased separately.
The console itself also includes:
- Game code
- Dynamic PS4 theme
- and "more"
What "more" entails we don't quite know yet, but that's a solid bundle for anyone that wants to hold off on the next generation for awhile. The limited-edition The Last of Us Part II PlayStation 4 Pro console is available for $399.99. you can learn more through the official PlayStation Blog here.
