Update 24/08/2018: It turns out, US retailers decided to skip the whole pre-order business and just put the consoles up for sale on launch day. That means, if you're quick (and lucky) you can buy a limited edition PS4 Pro 500 Million edition right now from the below retailers.
- Limited Edition 500 Million PS4 Pro for $499.99 from Amazon US
- Limited Edition 500 Million PS4 Pro for $499.99 from Best Buy
- Limited Edition 500 Million PS4 Pro for $499.99 from Target
- Limited Edition 500 Million PS4 Pro for $499.99 from GameStop
Be aware that when things are this limited, stock levels can come and go through the day as people's orders are cancelled or cards are declined, so keep checking.
Update 10:02AM: As of right now, the last batch of limited 500 Million PS4 Pro consoles is up for pre-order at Amazon UK. I give it five minutes before selling out, so get in there quick.
Update 3:55PM: PlayStation UK's Twitter account has now confirmed that, due to Amazon UK having a technical error when setting pre-orders live this morning, Amazon UK pre-orders will begin properly at 10 AM (BST) tomorrow morning (15th August at the time of writing.) You're going to want to stalk this page right here in order to snag yourself a console when the pre-orders go live again.
Thanks to all who tried to order the 500 Million Limited Edition PS4 Pro this morning.
Following a technical error, @AmazonUK has confirmed that pre-orders will take place at 10am tomorrow, limited to one per customer. For more information, please see: https://t.co/G1NOW0I9JS
