20th anniversary Sony PlayStation 4 with serial 00001 sells for $128,000 at auction During a recent auction, a buyer paid the incredible sum of 15,135,000 ($128,000 USD) to be the proud owner of the first 20th anniversary Sony PlayStation 4.
Sony announced in December that it would be celebrating the history of the PlayStation console by launching a special edition PlayStation 4 in the gray colorway of its two-decade old predecessor.

The winning buyer will now have serial 00001 of 12,300 special consoles, and all the proceeds have been donated to the "Save the Children Japan" charity.

Sony was surprised and delighted at the success of the auction: "We appreciate all who participated in the auction and are surprised at the highest bid price, which was higher than our expectations".

Other, later serial models have been selling on eBay for over $2000, on average.
