The 'Gaystation' is a special rainbow edition Playstation 4 that was created and auctioned off for the Stockholm Pride Festival this year. The auction for the limited Playstation was held through online Swedish retailer Webhallen, with a closing bid of just over $4,000, which is a considerable amount more than most gamers pay for regular Playstation consoles.

All of the proceeds from the auction of the Gaystation go towards RFSL Newcomers, an organization that supports members of the LGBTQ community that have had to flee a country based on their gender identity or gender expression. Although the rainbow Playstation is one of a kind, if you're dying to get your hands on a Gaystation of your own, the design could probably be replicated with a few colorful striped decals—at least until consoles this colorful start becoming mass-produced.
