Destiny: Taken King Edition
On the Taken King edition PS4, the top/right side of the console is imprinted with Destiny’s map of the cosmos in Gray and the Guardian seal in gold. The controller is a standard white controller with no additional prints, which is a real shame because the console is just beautiful.
Metal Solid Solid V: Phantom Pain Edition
This limited edition console is inspired by series protagonist Snake’s bionic arm. The console looks gorgeous with its red finish on the top half and the black on the bottom. The front buttons are gold which are complimented by a gold stripe running through the edge of the HDD cover.
However, this PS4 comes with some extra personality of its own. Where it should say “do not use Molybdenum lubrication,” the manufacturer has misspelled the element “molybdeum.” Oops.
Arkham Knight Edition

20th Anniversary Edition
Sony announced the PS4 20th anniversary console to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the PS1 since its launch in Japan. This limited edition PS4 is obscenely rare with only 12300 made world wide. The colour scheme reminiscent of the PS1 which features repeating etching of the four PlayStation button symbols around the console and on the controllers touch pad. The PlayStation logo on both the console and controller features the classic coloured PS logo. There is also an aluminium badge in the corner that denotes the 20th Anniversary title, as well as the specific number for each console. Quite surprisingly the console came bundled with a matching camera and stand. Unfortunately this console was sold out immediately and you may end up paying a hefty price if you want to bag on of these.

The PS4 is decked out with silver and contains the cute Slime mascot imprinted on both the console and the DualShock 4, there’s also ultra-cute metal slime dripping over the edge of the console.
