Now there is no store left besides B&H Photo, which charges a premium and usually does not have launch inventory.

Now last hope is Walmart.

9:00 am ET: Target Customer support has no details on when Target is starting to sell the 500 Million Limited Edition Console. "Thanks for reaching out to us.

We recommend you continue to check our website for availability."

8:15 am ET: No new inventory of the 500 Million Limited Edition Sony PlayStation 4 Pro has surfaced since last night.

Sony said that the 500 Million Limited Edition PS4 Pro will go on sale on Friday, August 24. GameStop told I4U News that the sales start is at 1 am ET (midnight Central). Other retailers like Amazon and Best Buy might already kick off the sale of the translucent blue and numbered PS4 Pro at midnight Eastern.

To not miss the sale of the 500 Million Limited Edition PS4 Pro, use the free online inventory tracking app The Tracker. The app sends you a notification on your smartphone when the 500 Million Limited Edition PS4 Pro CUH-7100B is in stock or available for pre-order. We will be live covering the 500 Million Limited Edition Sony PS4 Pro Sale and provide an additional manual inventory research updates.

Because of the extremely limited inventory, we guess around 10,000 units are allocated to the United States of the complete 50,000 worldwide inventory, retailers might obscure the sale. Besides using the app, also follow us on Twitter @i4unews for the latest updates. Amazon has, for instance, removed the listing of the 500 Million LE PS4 Pro a few hours ago. It's not clear if Amazon will use the same page to sell the new PS4 Pro or another one. It could also be that Amazon will use its infamous Lightning Deals widget or limit the sale to its Prime members.

Features of the 500 Million PlayStation 4 Pro system include a 2TB hard-drive, special translucent blue design, translucent blue wireless controller, special PlayStation Camera, special Vertical Stand, special, Mono headset, AC power cord, HDMI cable and USB cable. The value of the 500 Million Limited Edition PlayStation 4 Pro is depending on the serial number. Make sure you check it first, before flipping it on eBay.

Top 5 Tips to Buy the 500 Million Limited Edition PS4 Pro

1. Get ready well before midnight Eastern on Thursday night to buy the extremely limited PS4 Pro. GameStop told us that the sale begins at midnight Central time. This is 1 am ET, Friday, August 24. Such announced plans can change.

2. Open browsers for each of the four known retailers offering the translucent blue PS4 Pro: Amazon, Walmart, Target, GameStop and Best Buy

3. Open the shopping apps or mobile sites of the four retailers on your smartphone

4. Make sure your credit card and shipping information is up to date and that you are logged into the shops

5. Get the free Tracker app to get notified on your smartphone when the 500 Million Limited Edition PS4 Pro is in stock

Pre-order reservations of the 500 Million Limited Edition PS4 Pro are selling on average of $1,500 on eBay right now. The regular price of the new console is $499.99. European and retailers in other markets have offered pre-orders for the 500 Million Limited Edition PS4 Pro CUH-7100B / CUH-7116B last week. Lucky buyers are trying to flip their pre-orders. I recommend to first check the serial number on the CUH-7100B before deciding on the offer price.

The trading of the 500 Million Limited Edition PS4 Pro CUH-7100B on eBay will explode once buyers have received the consoles in the mail and check the serial numbers. We would not surprised to see asking prices of up to $10,000 for special 500 Million Limited Edition PS4 Pro consoles.
