Auction Begins For The Most Desirable PS4 On Earth

Auction Begins for the Most Desirable PS4 on Earth

Last year, Sony rolled out the limited edition Anniversary PS4 in classic PlayStation grey. There were only 12,300 released, each serialised. Now, you can bid on number 1.

The 12,300 number corresponded with the Japanese PS1's December 3rd launch. Sony is auctioning off the first console, which is 00001 out of 12300, for charity. All proceeds will go to Save the Children Japan, with Sony matching the amount raised by the console. Good on Sony for doing that.

Bidding began today on Yahoo! Auctions and ends on January 25. As of posting, bids are at 1.4 million yen ($14,664). Expect the amount to only increase by this Sunday, and don't be surprised if this Anniversary PS4 surpasses amounts previous ones racked up.

You'll be sad to know that the console will not be shipped overseas. So, if you plan on winning this, you'll need a Japanese shipping address. That, and lots of money.

    I just check it then and it says it's at 785,000 yen, which is around $8,426.

    Unless I'm looking at an older version of the webpage? Still the price is crazy.

      Yes it is. Because at the end of the day, it will play games just the same as any other PS4.

      Good for charity and all, but why don't they make a genuine one-off with hardware upgrades? At least that would be worth whatever some rich dude would be willing to pay.

        The capabilities of the hardware are irrelevant. It's a mindset only collectors can understand. I'm not saying I'd spend bucket loads of cash on this PS4, but I certainly understand the appeal not only that the 20th Anniversary console is already a collector's item, but it's 00001/12300.

      Did you miss the 1 at the start?
      I see 1,785,000.

        Well that's weird. One my computer it was only showing 785,000, on my phone shows 1,785,000.

        What i was looking at wasnt showing the automatic bid, so it was showing only the base bids.
