Custom "GayStation PS4" Up For Auction
This is bound to be a sensitive topic but hey, someone out there will snag a one-of-a-kind PlayStation 4.
It's a special "GayStation Edition" designed to support the Swedish Federation for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer Rights (RFSL). There are now over 100 bids and the total amount has gone over 18,600 (you can do the conversion if you wish). Here's a post from the auction:
"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."
The post ends with the hashtag, "thisisforthegaymers." We're not about to jump into that minefield, but we reserve the right to say that it's a pretty system. And yeah, we could all use more colors for our gaming hardware!
