Sony recently announced the limited edition 20th Anniversary PlayStation 4, decked out in the same gray color as the original PSOne. There were only 12,300 of these made, each having a serial number embossed on it denoting its number in the series.
Naturally, the most special one of the lot is the one with the 00001 number on it, making it even more rare and super expensive. But to see just how much it would sell for, Sony recently held an auction in Japan on Yahoo Auctions, and the console was won for ¥15,135,000, which is roughly $129,000. In comparison, the other 12,299 units were sold for ¥49,980 ($425).
Sony said they were surprised by the highest bid, and that it was higher than their expectations. The money from the auction will be donated to Save the Children Japan.
