Affectionately dubbed the GayStation 4, the limited edition Sony console was sold by Webhallen a Swedish retailer. The one of a kind ‘Pride’ console has sold for 28,300 Swedish Kroner, that’s €3060.24 to you and me!
The online retailer explained their custom console and the auction in statement; “For many young people, the world of games will become a refuge to escape the taunting or worse of real life. On Webhallen, we are gamers in heart and mind, and are keen that as many as possible have the opportunity to feel welcome and enjoy the world’s largest and fastest growing interest: video games.”
100% of the money raised in the auction; which saw the winner take home the 500GB model console, DualShock controller, 4 PS4 games of the auction winner’s choice (not including special collector’s editions) and a headset, are being donated to RFSL, a non-profit LGBT organisation that aims to create ‘a society that is characterized by respect for and acceptance of people’s differences on such a sweeping scale that organizations such as RFSL are no longer necessary.‘
