The blue translucent PlayStation 4 Pro places a barely extra fashionable spin on the same old fashion, with a deep blue as an alternative of the usual neon that the translucent vogue demanded again within the 90s.

Unfortunately, as is often the case when something is in restricted amount, the scalpers got here out to play and PS4 followers usually are not completely satisfied.
In this occasion, scalpers had been in a position to get the higher hand as a result of the sale of the platform went up before was initially teased. Pair that with the extraordinarily restricted amount for a console that garnered a lot curiosity, and the upset is greater than a bit of comprehensible:
