Sony will have around 800 PS4 20th Anniversary Edition consoles to sell online in the UK next week.

194 of the limited edition PS1-style PS4 systems are being sold this week at a Sony pop-up shop in London. 94 went today priced at £19.94, while a further 100 being sold across Thursday and Friday at the retail price of £399 have already been allocated to queuing customers.

PlayStation UK boss Fergal Gara told Eurogamer that 80 per cent of the volume allocated to the UK will be sold online, meaning around 800 units will be available to buy next week.

"This is a three-day celebration here in London," he said. "But it wouldn't be fair to our fans across the country if there wasn't access available to them as well.

"We're very conscious of fairness. While it's nice to be able to celebrate here with a retro store, it is the thin end of the volume."

Only 12,300 Anniversary Edition PS4s will be released worldwide.

"The volume is a close match with the original production run on PlayStation, so it's got a nice heritage story," Gara said. "They're very rare and they're very special. If you put it into mass production you dilute that. So right now, that's it. I'm not aware of any plans to change that."
