On Friday, we brought you the news that Sony was auctioning off the first of the 12,300 limited edition 20th Anniversary PS4’s produced late last year. The auction, which stood at ¥1,785,000 when we first reported the news, closed this morning at close to fifteen times that price, finishing at an absolutely massive ¥15,135,000. For reference, that’s about $128,500 US, or the average monthly salary here at The Chooch (I wish).

With Sony matching the winning bid, more than $250,000 from the auction alone will be donated to Save the Children Japan, and that’s not even factoring in the extra money added to the cause by the #ps_20th_love hashtag the company promoted on Twitter. For the winning bidder’s sake, let’s hope the unit’s not defective!
