He must be one happy (and wealthy) gamer.

Polygon has just reported that someone in Japan has just bought the very-limited edition Sony PlayStation 4 20th anniversary edition to the tune of ¥15,135,000 (that’s about $129,000 or 474,000 AED).

The purchase was part of an auction made by Yahoo Auctions based in Japan. Add to that the ‘00001’ number on the console (there were only 12,300 units produced) to make it even more valuable. As per the Yahoo Auction page, the unit has received 1,585 bids where it started at ¥1.
