The Stockholm Pride Festival is kicking off today in Sweden. To celebrate the occasion, a Swedish retailer is auctioning off a special PS4 called the “GayStation Edition”.
Swedish retailer, Webhallen will be auctioning off a special looking PS4 console to celebrate the festival. It’s just a normal PS4 console, although it’s decorated in many colors. It’s pretty much featuring all of the colors from the rainbow branded with a huge heart in the middle. If you don’t like your black or white PS4, this console might be a good alternative if you are able to get the highest bid for it. It also has a tagline that “#thisisforthegaymers”.
Here’s a quote to why Webhallen is auctioning off the PS4 in the first place:
“To a lot of youths, gaming is a helping hand to escape from abuse, or worse in the real world. We at Webhallen are gamers in our hearts and souls, wanting everyone to be apart of the worlds fastest growing hobby, computer and video games.”
I do think what Webhallen is doing is a good thing. People shouldn’t be ridiculing others for being gay or a certain race etc. This PS4 “GayStation Edition” looks very unique and could become a rare collector’s item in the future. Who else would own a rainbow colored PS4 console?
