Only 12,300 such consoles exist worldwide, and the bulk of general stock sold out within minutes last Saturday as pre-orders opened in the US. One day later, these custom-designed consoles fetched as much as $20,000 on eBay.

Now we are giving you all the information you need to get your hands on one! Celebrate 20 years of PlayStation with this very special console that combines the power of PlayStation 4 with the timeless style of the original PlayStation.

Each console has its own unique number etched on a stylish aluminium plate, and with only 12,300 being created globally, you could own a piece of gaming history.
