Sony has confirmed that it plans to release the PlayStation 20th Anniversary DualShock 4 controller as a standalone item this September.
The controller was originally part of a special PlayStation 20th Anniversary bundle, of which only 12,300 units were produced. The bundle was released in December 2014 to celebrate the original PlayStation’s launch in Japan in December 1994.
The console and controller were styled around the theme of the PlayStation One, and had everyone trying to get hold of one for themselves.
The madness went as far as some paying more than $100,000 for the limited console through online auctions. Such demented fools would be saddened by learning that by the end of the year, anyone will be able to purchase the specially-themed controller, and for a normal price.
Currently PlayStation Europe has confirmed the item’s availability by September, but a North American release has yet to be detailed. Online retailer Amazon is already taking pre-orders for the controller, for both territories.
A price of $64.99 has been put up.
