A super special PlayStation 4. A good cause. An internet auction. You better believe this 20th Anniversary PlayStation 4 just went for well over a hundred grand.

Sony held a charity auction online in Japan for the first serialized anniversary console (it's number one out of 12,300). The auction recently came to a close, drawing 1,585 bids with the winning one coming in at 15,135,000 yen—or US$128,086. Wowzers. That's a lot.

As mentioned previously, all proceeds will go to Save the Children Japan, with Sony matching the amount raised by the console. That's a lot of match.
