The £85K charity bid for the very first 20th Anniversary PS4 fell through

A while back Sony held a charity auction for the very first 20th Anniversary Edition PlayStation 4 console. The auction appeared to be a success with the winner bidding £85,000, unfortunately, he failed to pay up but Sony still kept its own promise and matched the winning bid in a donation to charity.

Sony is still going to donate the amount that the auction should have raised and throw another 15 million yen on top of that. All of this money will be going to the Save the Children Japan charity.

So what is going to happen to the PlayStation 4? Well it will no longer be sold and will now instead be displayed at the Sony Showroom in Tokyo.

It is not known who the highest bidder in the auction was and we don’t know why they didn’t pay up. However, this sort of thing can happen on auction sites from time to time.

KitGuru Says: While it is a shame that the auction winner failed to follow through, it is nice to see that Sony is keeping its promise to the Save the Children Japan charity.
