Sony Auctioning First 20th Anniversary Edition PS4 Made for Charity
The 20th Anniversary Edition PlayStation 4 sold out everywhere shortly after it was announced. Now, Sony is auctioning off the first one ever made and donating its proceeds to charity.
If you didn't know about the 20th Anniversary Edition of the PlayStation 4, then you've probably been living under a rock, which means you won't be able to afford the first one ever built now that Sony is putting it up for auction. The 20th Anniversary Edition PlayStation 4 took it old school with a design that was meant to replicate the first PlayStation console. There were only 12,300 copies sold of the console and they were all ordered instantaneously when the sales went live. The consoles were all sold within an hour of going up for sale. Now, Sony is looking to auction off the first 20th Anniversary Edition ever made for charity, Engadget reports.
While you'll only be able to get your hands on the console by living in Japan -- or knowing someone with a Japanese address -- Sony will make it worth your while when it donates all the auction's proceeds to the charity, Save The Children: Japan. However, prepare to be a little shell-shocked by the current bidding price of this baby, which currently stands at a whopping 16,778,216 yen (approximately $142,000).
